Bell peppers not only offer lots of natural flavor for very few calories but they’re also loaded with nutrition. This recipe is simple and has a few added ingredients to help detox the liver and aid in weight loss.
Red chili peppers contain capsaicin, a compound responsible for the “heat” in hot peppers which may help with appetite control and increase the rate at which the body burns calories. You can add fresh red chili peppers or sprinkle some flakes over the dish for added “heat” and metabolism booster.
