Health Benefit: Peaches and spinach contain fiber which promotes bowel health. Spinach is also a great source of plant-based iron to support blood health as well as B vitamins like folate to support metabolism and overall energy levels. Avocados and almonds are a healthy source of fat which helps keep us fuller for longer. Raw onions act as a prebiotic to promote good gut bacteria
