Bell Peppers

Bell peppers are cousins to chili peppers, but have more sweet than heat. They have a ton of antioxidants and nutritional value, though the red pepper has the the highest nutritional value because it's left on the vine for longer than the other colored varieties. For example, all bell peppers have Vitamin C and beta-carotene, but red bell peppers have higher concentrations of those essential nutrients. The capsaicin in bell peppers can help lower cholesterol, ease inflammation and boost your metabolism. Bell peppers also contain Vitamin B6, which is great for maintaing a healthy nervous system.
