3 Healthy Reasons We Should Eat Red Bell Peppers Every Day

I try to explain why I eat the way I do. When I started this site, I thought it was only going to be about weight loss. But, when you are eating healthy, you start feeling better.

And, when you learn that those who eat plant based whole food are healthier, trimmer and live longer, you simply have to share this with the world.

‘Sweet red bell pepper is one of the best sources of ascorbic acid and carotenoids as well as phenolic compounds important in the human diet [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22368104]’.

It’s simply the right thing to do to write about it if one is so inclined such as myself in doing so. As I keep writing, I get better and better at it. And, I do my best to explain so anyone will understand the benefits of becoming a vegetarian or vegan.

‘Now, I am not speaking as a scientist, I speak from my own experience of weight loss and improved health. I am a living example proving existing research on the benefits of eating plant based whole food is right’ ~ your author

But, even being a vegetarian or vegan doesn’t quite hit the mark, because there are unhealthy things they eat that someone who has adopted a plant based whole food diet do not.

Why We Should Eat Bell Peppers Every Day

  • Antioxidants
  • May reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and cancers

It is known that eating fruits and vegetables, including bell peppers regularly may help lower cardiovascular disease and cancer risks. I personally have experienced improved health, likely because I no longer eat like the vast majority of Americans.

Red bell peppers, beets and eggplants are choices high in antioxidants. But, remember, cooking may reduce nutrition. Therefore, top your daily leafy green salad with chopped red bell peppers. I also cook them in my tasty and filling big bowl recipe.
