  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 small piece ginger

Benefits

When they say "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", it's no joke as this common fruit has dietary fiber regulating the bowel movement which reduces the chance of colon cancer.  They lower cholesterol, ease digestion and help control appetite. Apples also contain plenty of naturally-occurring sugars, which is what makes 'em nice and sweet!

Lemons are linked to weight loss because they tend to decrease appetite, help with digestion, and lastly, even though they are acidic, lemons balance the pH level of the blood.

Bell peppers are high in nutrients and are an excellent choice for a well-balanced diet. Their vitamin C content is high (190% of the recommended daily amount). Further, they are low in fat and calories. They prevent cancer owing to their carotenoids (also giving them orange-red colour).

Ginger has been used for its medicinal properties for centuries. The phenolic compounds in ginger are known to help relieve gastrointestinal irritation, stimulate saliva and bile production and suppress gastric contractions and movement of food and fluids through the GI tract. It helps with nausea, pain reduction and inflammation.
