    A Surprising Source of Vitamin C
    So often we think of fruits as packing the vitamin C punch, but one kind of vegetable offers a wallop of vitamin C: peppers! Sweet green and red bell peppers both provide over 100 milligrams per serving, which is important because vitamin C needs to be replenished every day. And sweet red bell peppers not only are loaded with C but also provide over 2,000 milligrams of vitamin A!
