If you visit your local farmer’s market this week, you won’t be able to miss the abundance of colorful bell peppers available, ranging from your standard green and red to purple, orange and even brown! This amazing vegetable is delicious eaten raw and adds incredible flavor to dishes when it is sautéed. Not only that, but bell peppers are really good for you!
Boasting Vitamin C levels that rival the mighty orange, bell peppers are very nutrient-dense. They supply a variety of nutrients, including Vitamins A and B6, folate, molybdenum, and potassium; and also contain many phytonutrients such as quercetin, lutein, zeaxanthin, and cinnamic acid. These antioxidants are known for fighting oxidative stress and inflammation in order for our bodies to heal properly.
