Did you Know?
*
Green peppers are not ripe and they are hard to digest.  Use red/yellow/or orange.

* Black pepper made from peppercorns that are green, not Ripe, they dry them and that’s how they turn black.  These “un-ripened” seeds are very hard on the digestive system.  But red & white pepper is made from ripe peppers.

* GARLIC BREATH! Removing the little green part in the center of the garlic will eliminate garlic breath.  WHY?  Well, our bodies can not properly digest it, and it therefore creates garlic breath.  Simply cut the clove in half and remove the green little seed looking part.  It only takes a second.  By the way I have noticed that not all cloves have this green little part, so don’t go crazy looking for it.
