Health Highlights 
Every mouthwatering bite is brimming with nutritious vegetables that will strengthen your body and help fight against health risks.
 
Celery: Because of its low acidity, increased celery intake is recommended to help with heartburn and acid reflux. Celery is also known to help reduce cancer risks for cancers like breast cancer and pancreatic cancer.[1]
 
Green peppers: These peppers are filled with large amounts of vitamin C which can assist the body in fighting off infection. [2]


Tomatoes:
 The beta-carotene and vitamins in tomatoes can help to decrease the harmful effects of free radicals (molecules that can assist in causing cancer, heart disease, arthritis, etc.). For beta-carotene rich tomatoes, make sure to choose the reddest ones! [3]
