While volunteering in my son’s class I noticed one of of his friends was snacking on sweet mini bell peppers. His mother is a genius. Peppers are nutrient dense; rich in vitamins A and C. If that isn’t enough, they contain phytochemicals which are naturally occurring compounds found in plants.
But, here is why I love them as a snack: no mess, no sticky fingers and no complaints! I don’t even have to chop them up. The berry box colander is from Crate & Barrel and you can check it out HERE. I have two because I thought if I had pretty colanders to store the fruits and veggies, the family may be enticed to eat them! I was right- or maybe our Bernese Mountain Dog is getting some extra veggies and fruits in his diet from his “half” siblings!
