Feel a cold coming on? Then you should eat THIS vegetable more often!


It’s smart to eat this vegetable when you’re feeling under the weather

When we’re starting to feel a little under the weather, we tend to just bulk buy oranges, because it’s all about that vitamin C, right? That’s true, but if you’re in need of some extra vitamin C, oranges aren’t the best option you’ve got.

A kiwi or some strawberries contain a lot less sugar and calories than an orange and a lot more vitamin C. So, they’re a better option than our orange buddy! But if you really want to get a boost in vitamin C, you should try a few red bell peppers! It might sound strange, but it’s true. Of all fruits and vegetables, the red bell pepper is the one to contain the most vitamin C. Apart from uncooked Brussels sprouts, that is, but who wants to eat those?

So, should it really be a red bell pepper? Yes! A red bell pepper really does contain more vitamins and minerals than its green, yellow or orange siblings. Are you going to stock up before the flu season hits?
