Red Yellow Green Peppers Nutrients and Health Benefits  

Posted by GenuineAidBlog in , , , , ,

Have you seen the Red, Yellow, and Green Bell Peppers in your local grocery stores? Have you ever bought them or used them for your meals? Well, I used them and sometimes still do for my soups, salads, or whatever I can use them in. I really like the taste of the red sweet bell pepper, then I’d say the yellow one is next in line of taste for me, and then the green one. What is kind of annoying to me is that the red ones are the most expensive ones in stores. For salads I would recommend fresh peppers, but for the soups or cooked meals I usually use the frozen ones that are already chopped into strips and the package I buy at Wal-Mart has all three colors in it.

These Bell Peppers are from species called Capsicum Annuum and are called sometimes as Sweet Peppers. Usually these peppers are Red, Yellow, or Green, but from time to time people can get or find an orange pepper or even a purple one. Bell Peppers taste kind of sweet and kind of bitter, the red ones seem to me a little sweeter than others. People from around the world cook these peppers in many different ways, some eat them fresh and alone without anything else, some enjoy them in fresh salads, some put them in stir fry dishes or soups, and some stuff them with ground meat and cook them that way to enjoy it later.

Posted by GenuineAidBlog in , , , , , , , ,

On March 11th, 2011 at 2:46 pm local time near Sendai, Japan, occurred another huge catastrophic event after which people are still suffering with lots of after-effects. First Japan got hit with a hard 9.0 magnitude megathrust earthquake, it is the most powerful known earthquake that ever hit Japan and one of the top five known powerful earthquakes in the world since 1900′s. Then that Earthquake triggered very powerful and deadly tsunami waves of up to 33 feet (or 10 meters) high. Some of these waves in some of the places in Japan got as far as 6 miles (or 10 kilometers) inland, and smaller waves hit many other countries which surround the Pacific Ocean. That tsunami caused extreme and severe damage to Japanese people, animals, plants, soil, roads, railways, bridges, vehicles, buildings, electricity lines, water lines, electrical generators, and even a dam. Because of the earthquake and tsunami Japan’s three Nuclear Reactors suffered dangerous explosions which led to the release of some of the radiation into the air. As of March 18th, 2011 and as far as we all know none of the meltdowns have occurred yet. Hundreds of people already got radiation in their bodies. Many of the government officials from around the world advise the Japanese people to leave Japan at once. Since Russia is so close to Japan, some of its near by cities are already evacuating or have evacuated. As of today March 18th, 2011 the number of people dead or infected with radioactivity is still unknown because the Nuclear Reactors are not contained yet. Continue Reading the Full Story...

Quince trees produce beautiful white or pink flowers. According to some people’s opinions, Quince fruit gives out very pleasant and perfumy flavor.

Quince FlowerPeople from around the world like to enjoy Quinces in jams, jellies, puddings, or sauces because of its strong pleasant flavor.

There were no human witnesses in the garden of Eden that are alive today, but some ancient history somehow suggests that after being tempted by the devil, Eve ate this Quince fruit in the Garden of Eden. In my opinion that forbidden fruit wouldn’t survive till today, because it was only one tree, it was forbidden by God, and I don’t see why He would destroy it after the human disobedience. The Nutrients in an average full raw without refuse Quince fruit are: Continue Reading...
