Red Pepper One Pot Wonder
Red Pepper One Pot Wonder: Red peppers are called a superfood for a reason. They contain 300% of your required vitamin c intake (twice that of green peppers) which is not only a powerful antioxidant but also helps with the absorption of iron.
They are also a great source of vitamin B6 which is a natural diuretic to prevent bloating and helps to break down and digest proteins, and form red blood cells.
