Our minds and bodies are really cruising through the day thinking and acting on what the plan is for the day. Through the morning till we hit our beds at night, it’s a constant flow of one activity to the other — wether it be work, play, study, fun or fit we ought to complete activities through our days as the Japanese say “What we eat to fuel the movements of our bodies — is what keeps us healthy.”

Peaches are an extremely iron rich fruit — which enables more more haemoglobin production resulting in more oxygen being delivered to our cells to produce energy. Moreover, the other many elements within peaches such as — Vitamin C, A, E and minerals such as Potassium, cooper and magnesium help boost our moods, protects our heart and keep us healthy. It’s the perfect fruit to stay balanced, calm and energetically productive through the day — not to forget it tastes wonderful.
