Nutritious Nectarines

Green apples and nectarines

I haven't eaten nectarines in my life until yesterday. It was the first time I bought the peach-apricot looking kind of fruit. I am so amazed by the juiciness and delicious flesh of the fruit. I think this will become a part of our daily breakfast meal because it is loaded with vitamins and nutrients.

Here are the health benefits of nectarines:

Low in calories
Cholesterol free
Contains Vitamin C which helps build healthy immune system
A good source of antioxidants which helps protect the body from free radicals
Loaded with Vitamin A, beta carotene and potassium
Contains fibre which aids the healthy movement of bowels and better digestive track

So, if you haven't eaten nectarines yet,  now is the right time to include it in your staple.

  4. I've seen this in the grocery fruit section. I thought it's an apple but the name was different. Does it taste like apples? I'll have one as soon as I visit the grocery. It's really interesting.
