The Benefits of Peppers

Peppers come in an array of colors including brown and black. They are beautiful and overflowing with nutrients. They are loaded with Vitamins A, C, B6, and folates; which helps in burning fat, fighting disease, and keeping skin healthy and beautiful! Peppers wards off strokes, reduces high cholesterol, and contains 110 grams of water which is also excellent for weight loss. Peppers do not have a significant amount of cholesterol, sodium, or fat and at its highest caloric count peppers consist of approximately 50 calories. 

Here is my orange pepper sauce that can be used in many dishes. Pepper sauces are excellent alternatives for those who are allergic to tomatoes. It can be used in soups, pasta's, meats, etc... and it works great as a pizza sauce! The basic ingredients used in this recipe is orange peppers, apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, onions, garlic, salt, black pepper. I like adding other herbs and spices to create different tastes. Ex: When making pizza sauce I like to use Italian Seasoning or basil and sometimes honey for sweetness & added nutrients.
