Bell Peppers are rich in several nutrients, whether they’re red, green, orange, yellow, or purple. Because red peppers stay on the vine longer, they contain significantly higher levels of beta-carotene and vitamin C than green peppers.

The secret to the flavors of longsimmered meals in a third of the time isn’t new. It’s an update to a kitchen mainstay around since your grandma’s day – the pressure cooker. With strides in safety, user-friendliness, and price, today’s “second generation” pressure cookers make weekend favorites weeknight possible. How does pressure cooking speed up dinner?

Bell Peppers are rich in several nutrients, whether they’re red, green, orange, yellow, or purple. Because red peppers stay on the vine longer, they contain significantly higher levels of beta-carotene and vitamin C than green peppers. Tomatoes get their bright colors from lycopene, a carotenoid that can help reduce the risk of heart disease, cataracts, and cancer. Lycopene in synergy with other nutrients makes ripe tomatoes one of the best foods you can eat. They’re an excellent source of biotin, as well as vitamins A, C and K. Dark Leafy Greens are a food you should try to eat every day. As a collective group, they’re more nutrient-dense than any other vegetable. Leafy greens are excellent sources of everything from calcium to potassium to vitamin C and iron. Enjoy a variety of dark greens, raw or cooked,

Asparagus is an excellent source of folic acid, a vitamin essential for proper formation of cells and important for a healthy cardiovascular system. It’s also a very good source of potassium, fiber, and vitamins A, C, and K. Asparagus is in its peak season late March through early June. Winter Squash is highly regarded nutritionally for its carotenoid phytonutrients, which are responsible for both the color of the squash and for their health-promoting benefits, including powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. Carrots long have been associated with good eyesight due to the pro-vitamins alpha- and beta-carotene, precursors to vitamin A that also give carrots their bright orange color. From vitamin A, the body can make retinal, a nutrient that’s important in helping human eyes perceive light.

Sweet Potatoes have a very different nutritional profile than regular potatoes, with increased amounts of beta-carotene and antioxidants. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, and a good source of potassium, fiber and vitamin B6. Cauliflower lacks the bright color of its vegetable cousins because as thick outer leaves prevent the production of chlorophyll. Cauliflower still is a nutrient-dense food, however. One cup contains as much vitamin C as an orange and more fiber than a potato. Cauliflower also is an excellent source of folate and B vitamins.

Broccoli is an excellent source of fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, and K, and a good source of 16 other nutrients. The florets and stems have very similar nutrient profiles. Broccoli is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family that contains sulfur compounds, which neutralize toxic substances and can lower the risk of cancer. Eggplant receives its deep, rich color from a flavonoid called nasunin, a potent antioxidant that protects cell members from damage. It’s also believed that eggplants may be beneficial to the central nervous system. Eggplants are available year round, but their peak season – when their flavor is highest – is August through October.

Berries are a very good to excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, and manganese, and they’re full of strong antioxidants. Diets that include fresh berries have been linked to lower rates of cancer, especially cancer of the liver.

Pears like most fruits, are a great source of dietary fiber. One medium to large pear can contain as much as 20 percent of the daily recommended amount of fiber. Pears typically also are hypo-allergenic.

Cantaloupe contains many nutrients that promote cardiovascular health, such as potassium, which helps maintain healthy blood-pressure levels and muscle contractions. Cantaloupe also is a good source of folate and vitamin B6, which can prevent damage to artery walls.

Kiwifruit contain more vitamin C than oranges, and are a good source of potassium, copper, and magnesium. The peak of the kiwi season in the United States runs from November through May. For the best-tasting fruit, look for kiwi that yield to gentle pressure, a sign the fruit is ripe.

Papaya contains several nutrients and enzymes – specifically vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and chymopapain – that have been shown to help reduce inflammation, such as asthma and arthritis, often find that their symptoms are lessened when they eat foods containing these.

Bananas are one of the best dietary sources of potassium and vitamin B6. Potassium is a nutrient involved with blood pressure, muscle control, and nerve function. Increasing potassium in the diet may protect against hypertension.

Pineapples have a unique group of enzymes that break down proteins and act as a digestive aid that may help reduce tumor growth and inflammation. It’s these strong enzymes that work to tenderize meat when pineapple juice is used as a marinade. Pineapples also are an excellent source of manganese and vitamin C.

Grapes have been shown to exhibit coronary benefits similar to those associated with drinking red wine. Antioxidants called flavonoids are responsible for giving grapes their color, and they’re also known to lower cholesterol, reduce blood clots.

With strides in safety, user-friendliness, and price, today’s “second generation” pressure cookers make weekend favorites weeknight possible. How does pressure cooking speed up dinner? 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs. Coat peppers with cooking spray (Pam) inside and out. Place into a baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam as well. Set aside. 2. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, cook the onion is 1-2 tablespoons of oil until soft. Add garlic, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook 3-5 minutes. 3. Increase heat to medium and add ground beef. Cook until there is no longer any pink in beef. Stir in taco seasoning, salt, pepper, cumin, brown rice, diced tomatoes, corn, ortega green chilies, beans, sour cream, and cilantro. 4. Fill peppers with filling. Bake about 45-50 minutes or until the peppers are soft. Remove from oven and top peppers with cheddar. Return to oven and cook until cheese is nicely melted.

It all comes down to simple science. Water boils at 212 degrees F, producing steam. Because the pressure cooker is sealed airtight, preventing that steam from escaping, pressure builds within to 15 pounds per square inch (psi). That extra pressure heats the liquid to 250 degrees F. The “extra” 38 degrees breaks down the fibers of food quicker, cooking it 50-to 70-percent faster than other methods.

One cup contains as much vitamin C as an orange and more fiber than a potato. Cauliflower also is an excellent source of folate and B vitamins.

Asparagus is an excellent source of folic acid, a vitamin essential for proper formation of cells and important for a healthy cardiovascular system. It’s also a very good source of potassium, fiber, and vitamins A, C, and K. Asparagus is in its peak season late March through early June.

Broccoli is an excellent source of fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, and K, and a good source of 16 other nutrients. The florets and stems have very similar nutrient profiles. Broccoli is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family that contains sulfur compounds, which neutralize toxic substances and can lower the risk of cancer. Eggplant receives its deep, rich color from a flavonoid called nasunin, a potent antioxidant that protects cell members from damage. It’s also believed that eggplants may be beneficial to the central nervous system. Eggplants are available year round, but their peak season – when their flavor is highest – is August through October.

Pears like most fruits, are a great source of dietary fiber. One medium to large pear can contain as much as 20 percent of the daily recommended amount of fiber. Pears typically also are hypo-allergenic.

Cantaloupe contains many nutrients that promote cardiovascular health, such as potassium, which helps maintain healthy blood-pressure levels and muscle contractions. Cantaloupe also is a good source of folate and vitamin B6, which can prevent damage to artery walls.

Kiwifruit contain more vitamin C than oranges, and are a good source of potassium, copper, and magnesium. The peak of the kiwi season in the United States runs from November through May. For the best-tasting fruit, look for kiwi that yield to gentle pressure, a sign the fruit is ripe.

Papaya contains several nutrients and enzymes – specifically vitamins C and E, beta-carotene and chymopapain – that have been shown to help reduce inflammation, such as asthma and arthritis, often find that their symptoms are lessened when they eat foods containing these.

Bananas are one of the best dietary sources of potassium and vitamin B6. Potassium is a nutrient involved with blood pressure, muscle control, and nerve function. Increasing potassium in the diet may protect against hypertension.

Pineapples have a unique group of enzymes that break down proteins and act as a digestive aid that may help reduce tumor growth and inflammation. It’s these strong enzymes that work to tenderize meat when pineapple juice is used as a marinade. Pineapples also are an excellent source of manganese and vitamin C.

Grapes have been shown to exhibit coronary benefits similar to those associated with drinking red wine. Antioxidants called flavonoids are responsible for giving grapes their color, and they’re also known to lower cholesterol, reduce blood clots.

The secret to the flavors of longsimmered meals in a third of the time isn’t new. It’s an update to a kitchen mainstay around since your grandma’s day – the pressure cooker. With strides in safety, user-friendliness, and price, today’s “second generation” pressure cookers make weekend favorites weeknight possible. How does pressure cooking speed up dinner? 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut the peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and ribs. Coat peppers with cooking spray (Pam) inside and out. Place into a baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam as well. Set aside. 2. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, cook the onion is 1-2 tablespoons of oil until soft. Add garlic, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook 3-5 minutes. 3. Increase heat to medium and add ground beef. Cook until there is no longer any pink in beef. Stir in taco seasoning, salt, pepper, cumin, brown rice, diced tomatoes, corn, ortega green chilies, beans, sour cream, and cilantro. 4. Fill peppers with filling. Bake about 45-50 minutes or until the peppers are soft. Remove from oven and top peppers with cheddar. Return to oven and cook until cheese is nicely melted.

It all comes down to simple science. Water boils at 212 degrees F, producing steam. Because the pressure cooker is sealed airtight, preventing that steam from escaping, pressure builds within to 15 pounds per square inch (psi). That extra pressure heats the liquid to 250 degrees F. The “extra” 38 degrees breaks down the fibers of food quicker, cooking it 50-to 70-percent faster than other methods.
