Bell peppers, also known as Capsicum annuum, come in at least four colors and they are of different sizes. The popular colors are green, yellow, orange, and red. The mini sizes are usually referred to as sweet peppers and that is because they are sweet and can be eaten raw. One beautiful this again apart from being sweet and tasty is that they are highly nutritious.

Bell peppers are low in calories and extraordinarily rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, making them an excellent addition to a healthy diet. The vitamins and minerals in bell peppers are Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin K1, Potassium, Folate, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A. It is worthy of note that studies have had it that a single bell pepper can provide 169% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) for vitamin C.

Bell peppers fit-in into all cooking, I mean, all cooking. The nutritious, they are antioxidant, they are sweet, and they can even be added to any salad and can be eaten raw. It a “must-have” for every home.
