Wellness Wednesday: Sweet Bell Peppers

little bell pepper (from our garden), lots of vitamin C

Does the winter cold have your nose on the run? Skip the orange juice & snack on a few slices of red bell pepper. Not only does this sweet little veggie help boost your antioxidant levels, it also contains 2-3 times more vitamin C than citrus fruit. And since vitamin C is nature’s antihistamine, it’s your strongest ally in the battle against the sniffles.
