Smart Fuel: Bell Peppers

By Worker Bee

Bell peppers are in season, so make the most of this colorful antioxidant-loaded vegetable now. Mix red, yellow, orange, and green peppers in with your salads, stir fries, vegetable mixes, and grilled meats. Bell peppers are excellent all on their own as a snack, too. Along with carotenoids and lycopene, bells supply nearly three times your daily value for vitamin C, all of your daily vitamin A requirement (as beta carotene) and a nice dose of B6.

  1. My husband’s dentist is recommending two root canals – they can be bad for your health!! Do you think its better just to pull the teeth out?

  2. Wish I could answer that Sue. Not having them fixed is bad for his health too.

    I want to know what people think about fluoride in toothpaste and drinking water. My city doesn’t have fluoride in the water(just lots of chlorine) and I don’t want it. I have great teeth and I use a fluoride free toothpaste. If you’re not eating sugar all day long, you don’t need it anyway, in my opinion.

  3. ABOUT BELL PEPPERS: I Love Bell Peppers, They’re In Season At My House Every Day! I Always Eat Them In My Daily Salad And I Cook With’em Too. So Tasty And So Healthy, I Don’t Go A Day Without Eating’em.

  4. Red Bell Peppers is the one produce that I will pay any premium to have because they are so delicious – much better than a green pepper any day, although I like those in cooking as well.

    My farmers’ market also sells a wide variety of interesting colors like purple and dappled ones.
