Are we seriously starting the last week of July? I’m not ready for another summer to end, although technically it doesn’t end for a while but with school lurking around the corner it always feels like the season is over before it really is. That’s not fair, in my opinion. There are so many things I love about every season, but one thing I truly love about summer is all the produce we have available to us. Summer fruits and veggies are my favorite. Right now, I’m absolutely hooked on peaches and my kids and I have been eating them daily. Sweet summer peaches are the best.

Have you tried adding peaches to a salad? I tried this Spinach Salad with Peaches, Gorgonzola and Almonds several years ago and always look forward to summertime when the peaches start showing up in the produce section. When I’m picking out my peaches, I like to get ones that are still a bit firm and leave them out to ripen on the counter for a day or two. If you are having an intense peach craving and want to eat one immediately then select one that starts to give when you gently press on the area around the stem. If it gives, then it’s ripe and ready to eat.

I know I’ve mentioned before that I have been focusing on weight loss and body composition this year and a lot of my results have come from tracking my food in My Fitness Pal (if you want to connect there, you can find me under aggiegoodman). Tracking my food has become a daily habit for me, and one of the most helpful tools on MFP has been to “save meals”, especially ones that I tend to eat often. It makes tracking SO much easier when you can just add a quick meal in without thinking too hard. It also provides nutrition information for the meal which has helped me in providing that same information for my recipes when I post them here for you. You can save a meal by clicking on the 3 dots in the meal section (if you are using the app), Save Meal should then come up as an option. When I am actively tracking it makes a huge difference because I take the time to measure out ingredients like the almonds and gorgonzola and dressing in a meal like this – those can be calorie killers and if you are trying to drop weight then it does make a difference. I don’t worry too much about exact measurements of fruits and veggies because they are fruits and veggies.

You’ll have to let me know if you try this Spinach Salad with Peaches! If you are a fan of salads with fruit in them (like this Spinach Strawberry and Walnut Salad) then I think you will enjoy it.
