RM#2 Day 19 - Redbellpepper, Celery N Pasta Soup

Bell peppers are packed with several nutrients. They are a good source of vitamin C, thiamine, vitamin B6, beta carotene, and folic acid. Bell peppers also contain a large amount of phytochemicals that have exceptional antioxidant activity. When comparing the nutrient values of the different bell peppers, studies have shown that red bell peppers have significantly higher levels of nutrients than green. Red bell peppers also contain lycopene, which is a carotene that helps to protect against cancer and heart disease. Possibly due to their vitamin C and beta carotene content, bell peppers have been shown to be protective against cataracts.Eating celery will reduce high blood pressure and give the effect of calmness. Celery clears uric acid from painful joints and may help the treatment of arthritis and rheumatic problems.Celery also helps the kidney an acts an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.Another benefit of celery is the fact that you can eat a lot of it without thinking much about your waistline.
