Beyond being a tasty addition to many dishes, green bell peppers are low in calories, fat free and have a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals. According to SF Gate’s Healthy Eating, a 1-cup serving has 2.5 grams of fiber, 119.8 milligrams vitamin C, .55 milligrams vitamin E, and the mineral zeaxanthin, which is good for eye health. Green bell peppers are rich in antioxidants (but not as rich as a red bell pepper) and they can help fight against a host of chronic illnesses including inflammation, heart problems and cancer.
