November: Red Peppers
Did you know that red peppers have more vitamin C than orange, yellow or green peppers? They're also a great source of vitamins A and E, as well as folate and potassium. In addition to these nutrients, peppers are a good source of antioxidants—powerful compounds that help protect us from disease.
