Soup and Poetry

There’s nothing like
A hot bowl of soup
For a fresh cold
And stuffy nose

So bring on the bell peppers
Chicken soup and herb seasoning
While you watch the daily news

Nutritious Benefits

Bell peppers are a delicious vegetable that can be enjoyed either raw or cooked. When served raw, bell peppers have a crisp texture that lends itself to salads and makes a perfect complement to dips. When bell peppers cooked they take on a smoky, sweetness that enhances many dishes.

Bell peppers come in a variety of colors including green, yellow, orange, red and black. Green bell peppers are somewhat bitter in flavor while red and orange peppers tend to be much sweeter. Red bell peppers are used to make pimentos and paprika. In addition to their great flavor, bell peppers have great nutritional value.

High in Antioxidants

Bell peppers are a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are free radical scavengers that help to keep the body in tip-top shape. Not only are bell peppers high in the antioxidant vitamins C and A, they are also a good source of lycopene. Consuming foods with lycopene has been shown to lower the risk of prostate, bladder, cervical and pancreatic cancers.

Red bell peppers contain lutein, a phytonutrient that has been proven to have a protective benefit against macular degeneration.

Preparation

Always wash peppers under running water before use. You can also use a vegetable wash to remove any wax from your peppers. It’s easy to make your own veggie wash, just dilute vinegar or lemon juice with fresh water and store in a spray bottle.

After washing, peppers can be sliced or chopped any way you wish. Just be certain to remove the stem, seeds and ribs prior to cutting.

Bell peppers taste great raw, grilled, roasted and stuffed. However you decide to prepare your bell peppers, know that you are eating one of the world’s most nutritious vegetables.
