Surprising Health Benefits of Mini Peppers

If you grew up with the traditional, versatile but somewhat bitter, green bell pepper, you might be surprised but the delightfully sweet treat, the mini bell pepper.

A relatively new addition to the bell pepper family at the local supermarket, mini peppers are about one-third the size of their full-figured cousins, and they come in a beautiful array of colors, ranging from bright reds, oranges, yellows, and yes greens. While traditional bell peppers are commonly sold individually, mini peppers are typically packaged in a fashion that displays their appealing colors to the best advantage. If it is true that you “eat with your eyes first” mini peppers will definitely get your taste buds tingling. Not only lovely to look at, they are sweet, crunchy, go great with veggie dips, raw on salads, or cooked into your favorite recipes.

Even better, mini peppers pack a nutritional wallop, just like full size bell peppers. With just 29 calories for a one cup serving, mini peppers provide more than 150% of your DV for vitamin C, and is a significant source of vitamin B6, vitamin A, folate, molybdenum, vitamin E, and fiber.

Mini peppers are definitely sweet treat you can treat yourself to regularly, and still feel good about munching.
