I saw a friend eating raw peppers at lunch the other day. Apparently, the look of shock on my face elicited her response of “they aren’t hot – they are sweet”. I’ve never eaten peppers like that. I don’t eat them very often, actually, and never raw. Always chopped up and in something or grilled. But I was intrigued. And I like my food to be colorful.
So today I bought three – red, orange, yellow – sliced them up and had about a 1/2 cup for lunch. They were good. Apparently, good for me, too. Sweet! (Hahahahaha! “Sweet” – get it? I know …dork.) I researched a little and found out that they have a lot more vitamin C than citrus. And all kinds of God grown-goodness to prevent cancer.
Do you eat peppers? How do you use them?
