I started a real fitness program today. No, really I did and that's a good thing.
Now the bad thing - you knew it was coming, right?
I've posted before about trying to be a locavore - and being more responsible about where my food is coming from.
(I'm sorry, I don't know how to paste just the link... anyone? help?)
Anyway, today at the market, there they were... beautiful, slightly soft to the touch with just enough give, fuzzy and glowing... Georgia Peaches... definitely not within the 100 mile radius of my home to get Local Grown Status...
Definitely does not meet the criteria for a Locavore Dinner of the week... but gosh they are gorgeous and fruit is sooo good for a diet and I love peaches and I could make a really good, low cal dessert with those peaches...
So I bought them. Just a few. Just to tide me over until August when Jersey peaches will be ripe for the picking..
Hey, I'm a convert, not a preacher.
Grilled Peaches: (serves 4)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 teaspoons honey, warmed in microwave for a few seconds
Freshly whipped sweet cream (optional)
Preheat Grill to Medium
Wash peaches. Cut in half and remove pit.
Place cut side down (skin side up) on hot grill and grill for 4-5 minutes to carmelize.
Turn and grill 1 or 2 more minutes to warm through.
While grilling skin side, sprinkle some cinnamon on peaches.
Remove to plate, drizzle with warm honey.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. (I'm skipping the whipped cream)
Also great with vanilla ice cream but I'm not even going there.
According to my handy dandy food scale the nutritional value is:
peaches: 1 (5 oz) peach (about the size of a tennis ball) = 61 calories
honey: 1 teaspoon = 15 calories
cinnamon: sprinkle = 0
whipped cream sweetened with splenda: 1 tablespoon = 50 calories (for those of you with absolutely no will power) :0)
