~*Snacking on a great source of Vitamin C & Fibers!

Did You know that Red and Yellow bell peppers contain around two times more vitamin C than Oranges and Citrus fruits ? Well, in case you didn’t know now you do do know!

One orange= 116% of daily Vitamin C value

1/2 cup of chopped red pepper= 158% of daily Vitamin C value

At times where you look for ingredients that have a high vitamin C content, consider adding red and yellow peppers to your salads and including them in your afternoon snacks!

Hence, whenever you or any other member of the family opens the fridge, the reminder of consuming those fresh and colorful vegetables would be there!
