Available in appetizing colors including green, yellow, orange, red and black, eating bell peppers is an easy, refreshing way to add nutrients to your meals. Bell peppers are:
- A low-calorie vegetable
- An excellent source of vitamins A and C
- A good source of dietary fiber, folic acid and vitamin B6
Plus, if you choose red bell peppers, you will be getting lycopene, an important carotenoid that may help protect against prostate and other cancers.
Adaptable plants that are part of the nightshade family, bell peppers are fairly hardy and can be grown in a variety of climates. Because of their geographic range, bell peppers are found in many types of traditional cuisines, from Mexican and European to Chinese and Creole dishes. Extraordinarily versatile, bell peppers can be eaten raw as crudités or in a salad; stuffed and baked; sautéed or stir-fried. Purchase bell peppers that are free of blemishes, and always seek out organically grown varieties.
