Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Super Healthy - Quick and Easy Red Pepper

This delicious stuffed peppers recipe is just about the healthiest thing you could eat. The red bell peppers are stuffed with antioxidant vitamins A, C and K, which help support the immune system and protect from cancer and heart disease.
The tomatoes also contain vitamins, potassium and iron, along with lycopene which is known to protect against prostate cancer. The good news is that cooking brings out even more of the medicinal qualities of tomatoes. Garlic has a long list of plus points regarding health.... and of course olive oil is bursting with those good monounsaturated fats.
