My poor husband has come down with some combination of sore throat, runny nose, and exhaustion...typically referred to as the common cold.
While we like to share most things in life, I would rather not have us both sick at once. So I have been eating vitamin C...and you know what I learned this year? Bell peppers have WAY more vitamin C than oranges. I had an orange and half an orange bell pepper yesterday...the orange was not a very good one. The bell pepper was delicious.
I also learned this year that vitamin C helps your body to better absorb iron. (Or is it the other way around?) So I had my bell bepper slices along with my chicken/swiss/spinach sandwich.
Now I am fully fortified. Be afraid, little germs. Be very afraid.
