Red Bell Peppers
Red Bell, the KING OF THE GRILL. Try these delicious red bell peppers grilled, as a sauce (as you would tomato), dip or dressing. Also makes a beautiful stuffed pepper and adds a sweetness to stuffing. Of course you should add it to your juice/smoothie routine!
As many know, one bell pepper contains double the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C. That's more than a large orange! However, did you know that the Red Bell is also a great source of Vitamin A?

Orange Bell Peppers
Orange bell peppers are not as fire-friendly as the red and yellow bells, but can hold their own. Excellent color contrast in salads, sauce, dips, dressings, and stuffing.
