Sweet Bell Peppers Are Sweet For Your Health!

Bell peppers, with their shiny exterior and crunchy, tangy taste are an excellent source of carotenoids. A recent study from Spain took a close look at the antioxidant contents, particularly vitamin C, vitamin E, and six of these carotenoids (alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin) in all regularly eaten foods and discovered that only two vegetables contained at least two-thirds of all the listed nutrients. One of these foods was the juicy tomato, and the other was the sweet bell pepper. ( With its high carotenoid and antioxidant content, the sweet bell pepper has anti-inflammatory benefits and can help ward off cancer.

To include some bell peppers in your next meal, try this “Bee Fit” recipe:


2 cups of arugula, rinsed

1 cup of sliced yellow cherry tomatoes, rinsed

1/4 cup of sliced fresh mozzarella cheese (optional)

1/4 cup of pine nuts (optional)

1/2 cup of chopped or sliced onions

1 whole yellow, green, or red bell pepper sliced

1 TBSP of olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing


Rinse all the vegetables, including the arugula, and pat dry. Place the arugula on a plate and top with the cheese, pine nuts, onions, cherry tomatoes, and finish with the bell pepper slices on top. Drizzle with a dab of olive oil and balsamic dressing.

Remember, folks, food determines how we feel and heal!
