Red Bell Peppers

Think citrus fruits are packed with vitamin C? Think again! Compared to citrus fruit, red bell peppers contain about twice as much. They are also a wonderful source of beta carotene which can help keep your eyes and skin healthy as well.

You can add red bell peppers to most dishes or even serve them raw with a salad. They are super easy to fit into your day-to-day cooking.

Broccoli

Did you know that Broccoli is packed with vitamins and minerals? Broccoli contains vitamins A, C, and E, as well as many antioxidants along with fiber. 

Want to keep your broccoli as healthy as possible? Try cooking it as little as possible or not at all. Broccoli can be a great snack with some dip such as ranch. It can also be great added to stir fry dishes or many other recipes.

Garlic

Garlic is used around the world in most cooking, it adds some extra flavor to food while also being great for your health. Early humans recognized garlic for its ability to fight infections. It is also known to help lower blood pressure and slow down the hardening of arteries.

Garlic can be used in most any dish to add additional flavor and can also be baked in the oven and used as a spread.
