Since we are still in Vision Health Month, we cannot avoid to mention Bell peppers.
But, did you know?
A green bell pepper is just an unripe yellow pepper, which is just an unripe red pepper (though some varieties ripen to yellow, not red).
Benefits? yes! plenty:
Whatever to color they have they all have many nutrients that are good for you, Vitamin C, B6, Capsaicin, and certain enzymes. One of those, lutein, protect the eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration later in life.
Now, How do I eat them?
Ideally raw, you keep lutein and all the vitamins undamaged. If you rather cook them try to chose a light sautee in a pan, until they are somewhat crispy still.
