This week’s Lunch Makeover includes a sweet addition to your typical tomato-mozzarella-basil combo: peaches.

It calls for just one peach, which contains a healthy dose of both vitamins A and C. They’re especially delicious this time of year until the end of August. Just chop up your four ingredients, throw them into a container, and you’ve got a healthy and beautiful lunch.
