You’ve heard the phrase ‘eat your colors’ meaning if you pick out the most colorful fruits and veggies they have the most nutritional value. Well, I’m not sure, but I may have struck nutritional gold with the bag of mini-peppers I purchased today at Aldi.
Last week two of the ladies that I work with that were participating in the Ten Day Challenge were bringing them to work to snack on. So I bought a bag today for . . . . drum roll, please . . . . $1.99. Still not convinced? Here’s the nutritional line-up. Keep in mind one serving is three peppers:
- Total Fat – 0%
- Cholesterol – 0%
- Sodium – 0%
- Calories – 25
- Potassium – 180m
- Carbohydrates – 5 g
- Fibre – 1 g
- Sugars – 3g
- Protein – 1 g
- Vitamin A – 35% of daily recommended*
- Vitamin C – 270% of daily recommended(
- Iron – 2%*
- *based on 2,000 cal a day diet
There are approximately 13 servings in the bag I bought.
Not only are they colorful, nutrititous and low in calories, they are crunchy, flavorful and inexpensive. Pack them in your lunch this week and see you can turn sweet mini-peppers into a snacking sensation at your workplace.
