Expert Tips

“Having high blood pressure, I am sure to take my medicine every day and consistently monitor it. I also see my doctor very faithfully.” Lori S.

Colored bell peppers are outstanding sources of beta-carotene, which your body makes into vitamin A. Vitamin A is necessary for night vision and healthy hair and skin. Roasting bell peppers and onions brings out their naturally sweet flavor, but if you're pressed for time, you can skip this step for a crunchier salad.
