My 10 Must-Have Foods for the Fridge

Bell peppers

Red, yellow, and green bell peppers are a top source of vitamin C, a multitasking nutrient that helps give us luscious locks and radiant skin, plus ease everyday aches and pains. In fact, one red bell pepper contains twice as much vitamin C as an orange! And, thanks to their high water content, bell peppers are a high-volume, low-cal food that can even help you shed a few pounds. My kids and I love munching on crunchy, raw red bell pepper strips (they’re sweet like candy!), and they’re a regular addition to salads, pasta dishes, frittatas, and stir-fries at dinnertime.
