Nutritional values

Peppers contain plenty of vitamin C and are abundant in cell-protecting vitamin E. Kidney beans supply the body with the trace element molybdenum, which helps detoxify and deacidify the body.

As an appetizer or light dinner, the colourful vegetable salad doesn't need to be paired with bread. At lunchtime, a piece of whole wheat bread should be served as a side dish so that your blood sugar level and performance remain constant.
