When buying bell pepper, select those which appear firm and crisp. They should be shiny and richly colored. Do not buy if it is dry or have soft spots. Rinse bell peppers under cold running water just before using. Red peppers are high in both vitamins A and C. Green peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C.
Beef provides nutrients like zinc, iron, protein and B vitamins, and almost half of the fat found in meat is monounsaturated, the same heart-healthy fats found in olive oil.
Lean pork cuts are high in protein, low in fat and have more B-vitamins than the various types of meat. Pork also contains healthy doses of selenium as well as zinc. When buying pork, look for cuts with a small amount of fat on the outside and with meat that is firm and reddish pink in color.
Onion has many uses. It adds a pleasant aroma to whatever recipe. You can store onions in a well ventilated, cool and dark place for up to a month. Avoid storing them near potatoes. If already sliced, refrigerate in a tightly sealed jar for up to 3 days. Yellow onions have a nice balance of flavor. The longer they cook, the sweeter they become.
