Which vegetable has three times as much vitamin C as an orange?

Answer: A Bell Pepper! All varieties provide a good source for your daily recommended Vitamin C, but yellow and red peppers are the highest. Just remember, to get the full amount of Vitamin C (and other nutrients), you have to eat the whole thing!
