Continuing on the topic of nourishing our bodies during this time of year – we have prepared a bell pepper quinoa salad recipe for you. A reminder as to why bell pepper is good during this time from last weeks post:
🫑 Bell pepper – It is very rich in vitamin C, its use helps to maintain the elasticity of the connective tissue, and thus avoid wrinkles and stretch marks. Vitamin C ranks first in the prevention of colds and viral diseases. Peppers also have a lot of beta-carotene, which is needed to renew skin cells, heal scratches, it is also rich in silicon, a lack of silicon makes the structure of hair and nails weak. Now is the time to replenish your body’s stores of these vitamins. Peppers are best eaten raw, as heat treatment destroys these vitamins and minerals.
