Green Peppers and Digestion

I invited a friend over for dinner the other night, and after eating our salads, I went to clear her plate and saw a big pile of green peppers. "Not a fan, huh?" I said. She patted her belly and said, "They don't agree with me." Apparently, many people share the complaint that green peppers are tough to digest. They say this green veggie makes them gassy. If this sounds familiar, keep reading.

Green peppers are actually picked unripe, and when you eat any fruits or veggies that haven't quite reached their prime yet, they can be tough to digest. So if you've noticed that green peppers cause you tummy troubles, just replace them with red, orange, or yellow peppers, since these are fully ripened.
