Green Verses Red Bell Peppers

Usually cheaper than their red and yellow counterparts, green bell peppers are actually unripe. They also have a slightly bitter flavor than the more colorful varieties. The red bell peppers actually contain more of the vitamins and minerals we previously spoke about. The green peppers contain more of essential amino acids and the yellow more of all amino acids. This makes the case that there is no valuable reason to select one more than the other, so I recommend you consume all. Mix it up to keep it interesting. I am more inclined to use the green peppers when I am cooking them and the colorful red and yellow peppers when I am eating them raw.
