I love peppers. Especially bell peppers. They’re so crunchy and sweet. I like to get mine at my local farmer’s market.
One of my favorite ways to eat them is roasted. I like to put a big red pepper in the oven and turn it every now and then until it’s soft. They’re delicious that way. Plus, you get to eat the skin where a lot of the nutrients are.
Which gets me thinking… do you know why brightly colored fruit and vegetables are so delicious? It’s because you’re supposed to eat them. Nature wants you to. It’s one of the ways we get our nutrients. Like vitamin A, for example.
Vitamin A is an “essential” vitamin because you can’t make it in your body. The only sources are animal products like meat, eggs and fish.
