Green bell peppers do so many things for your body, it’s hard to tell where to start. Well, here goes: High in Vitamins C and A, the green pepper promotes immunity. There’s actually as much C in a pepper as in an orange. The green pepper also is high in silicon which is needed for beautiful skin, hair and nails. They are also loaded with Vitamin B which helps you resist stress. Green peppers are best eaten raw for the most nutrient although if cooked, slowly and gently, will retain a lot of nutrients. Great news, too. They’re easy to grow. It’s easy to find plants at the nurseries in early spring and it’s also easy to start from seed.
