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.

Wasabi Root Nutrients and Health Benefits

Wasabi Root.Many people are used to seeing wasabi in a form of a green paste and usually by sushi dishes. But in real life Wasabi is pretty much another Vegetable plant that is also known as Japanese Horseradish, or Wasabia Japonica, or Cochlearia wasabi, or Eutrema japonica. Wasabi is a member of the Brassicaceae family, in other words, it’s in the same family as Mustard, Horseradish, and Cabbage. Typically Wasabi is used as a condiment, especially for sushi and/or rice. Since it’s pretty difficult and expensive to grow and keep wasabi plants, people began to make a very similar tasting product called Western Wasabi which consists of Western Horseradish, Mustard, and Green Food Coloring.

Usually people can buy the Wasabi roots, Wasabi leaves, or Wasabi paste. The root should normally be grated, ground, or sliced before consuming it. When you decide to enjoy some of the Wasabi Paste with your sushi or other foods, then make sure that you don’t wait for too long before eating it because the flavor of Wasabi in Wasabi paste begins to evaporate after about 15 minutes. Also, remember to take just a little at a time of Wasabi Paste into your mouth, because if you take too much then you’ll feel it burn your tongue and maybe your nose. Continue reading
