Day 2077 - Apricots

For the love of apricots.

Did you know that apricots are packed with beta-caretone which is a compound that helps ward off the damaging effects of the sun.  Very important for me as I return from the desert heat of Las Vegas.  

According to Elizabeth Ward, author of "My Plate for Moms: How to Feed Yourself and Your Family", apricots are also full of fibre, potassium, and copper which promotes bone and immune health. 

Note: They are much better in their fresh form as the dried variety are higher in calories and sugar.
