Red Yellow Green Peppers Nutrients and Health Benefits

Sweet Bell PeppersHave you seen the Red, Yellow, and Green Bell Peppers in your local grocery stores? Have you ever bought them or used them for your meals? Well, I used them and sometimes still do for my soups, salads, or whatever I can use them in. I really like the taste of the red sweet bell pepper, then I’d say the yellow one is next in line of taste for me, and then the green one. What is kind of annoying to me is that the red ones are the most expensive ones in stores. For salads I would recommend fresh peppers, but for the soups or cooked meals I usually use the frozen ones that are already chopped into strips and the package I buy at Wal-Mart has all three colors in it.

These Bell Peppers are from species called Capsicum Annuum and are called sometimes as Sweet Peppers. Usually these peppers are Red, Yellow, or Green, but from time to time people can get or find an orange pepper or even a purple one. Bell Peppers taste kind of sweet and kind of bitter, the red ones seem to me a little sweeter than others. People from around the world cook these peppers in many different ways, some eat them fresh and alone without anything else, some enjoy them in fresh salads, some put them in stir fry dishes or soups, and some stuff them with ground meat and cook them that way to enjoy it later.

Low Carb Russian Borsht Recipe

borshtLow Carb Borsht Recipe

We are pretty sure that everyone has heard of the Russian food called “Borsht”. The red Russian soup, We don’t even know why people write it in English with a T at the end, when in Russian you don’t write it or say it. Well, this is an adjusted recipe for Borsht. Since people on low carb diets cannot have potatoes, then we left them out. This still tastes really delicious. This recipe also uses reserved chicken, so it’s a lot faster to make. Here are the Ingredients:

– 1 whole head cabbage
– 1 onion
– 1 can (8oz) tomato paste
– 2 long carrots
– Reserved Chicken (read more about it at the end of recipe)
– Chicken stock preferred, but water can be used
– Bell pepper strips (we buy ours frozen)
– Salt and pepper

And here are the Directions:

– First get all of your ingredients ready.
– Shred the cabbage.
– Shred the carrots.
– Dice the onion.
– Put all of your ingredients into a stainless steel pot and cover with either chicken stock or water. However much you want. Make sure to season to your taste.
– Bring everything to a boil.
– Reduce heat and let cook for about 10 minutes.
– And you are done!

We prefer to eat our Borsht with toasted sprouted bread, mayo or sour cream, and fresh onion slices (yep, just bite into them!)
– Reserved chicken: we set aside a day when we make chicken stock (a whole different recipe) after everything has cooked the right amount of time, we take all of the meat off the bones and reserve it for later meals.
