Peppers are bursting with vitamin C which is a key nutrient for our immune system. They also contain valuable antioxidants such as lutein for healthy eyes, and beta carotene which is converted to vitamin A in the body for immune and skin health. Goats cheese is also often better tolerated than cow’s milk.
