Red peppers really are the wowsa va va vavoom of vegetables.

They are easy, beautiful and can be used in more ways than we have time to sit here and talk about.

Here are some things they bring you besides just being delicious:

    beta-carotene / cryptoxanthin / lutein / zeaxanthin)

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak,

return to yourself, to who you are, here and now

and when you get there,

you will discover yourself,

like a lotus flower in full bloom,

even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”
