As you can see from the nutrition label on this page, Red Peppers are very high in Vitamin A and Vitamin C.

Red Peppers also contain a wide variety of minerals which are all highly correlated with improved health. What you probably don't know about Red Peppers is that they are VERY high in lesser known micronutrients and phytochemicals.

They rank very high on the food scoring system that was developed by Dr. Fuhrman and marketed by Eat Right America. On this system, Red Pepper has the same nutritional score as Broccoli!

Can Red Peppers Help You Lose Weight?

One of the "main draws" of PEERtrainer is that people come here to lose weight. When it comes to motivation and actual decision making, the reality is that Weight Loss is a primary human motivator.

What is great about Red Peppers is that in addition to having an extremely high nutrient ranking, they have been shown in research to help decrease one's appetite.

Can Red Peppers Help Fight Against Heart Disease and Cancer?

According to some recent research, Red Peppers contain powerful anti-inflammatory compounds which help to slow the progression of heart disease and cancer.

What is interesting about all this research, is that much of it supports what Dr. Fuhrman has been saying for years and years about the power of high nutrient foods to help people lose weight quickly, but also reverse disease.

We are in the process of evaluating the incentive structure in the new PEERtrainer Cheat System. We are likely to add the eating of Red Peppers to the incentive pool. We would observe that Red Peppers would be an excellent "go to" food to help combat night eating and emotional eating. The reason that you earn an extra 1/2 cheat for eating greens after 5pm, is to help people deal with a period of the day when the wheels come off for a lot of people.

An Easy Way To Eat Red Peppers!

Roasted Red Peppers are a staple of Middle Eastern Cuisine, and help add powerful flavor to many dishes.

This is a Recipe For Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

It is very easy to make and you'll find that the mixture of red peppers, hummus and sesame seeds contain a very high amount of important nutrient. They will fill you up, give you energy and maybe even help you down the road as you get older.
