Jalapenos are a fresh and spicy pepper that contains a lot of benefits.  Flavor-wise and nutrition-wise, a little bit goes a long way so it's good to have a few peppers in your fridge to use in small amounts. Or you can also keep them as jalapeno pickles too! 

Try Dr. Mark Hyman's recipe : Hot Peppers and Sautéed Vegetables
A spicy saute full of things that are colourful, good for you–and also, of course, really delicious.

1 Jalapeno Pepper
2 Cloves Garlic
1 Teaspoon Fresh Parsley
1/8 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
1/2 Bunch Broccoli
1/2 Large Red Onion
2 Teaspoon Olive Oil
2 Cups Baby Carrots

Step 1: Mince the jalapeno, garlic, and parsley. Combine the pepper flakes, sea salt, and paprika. Cut the broccoli into florets and julienne the red onion.
Step 2: In a sauté pan heat olive oil over medium heat and add the carrots, onions, and broccoli to the pan. Sauté for 4–5 minutes. Add the parsley, spices, jalapeno, and garlic to the sauté pan and finish cooking for 2–3 more minutes so the carrots become tender.

Why Are They Good For You?
Jalapeños may help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism, increasing fat burn and reducing your appetite.

Several studies have found that capsaicin and other similar compounds called capsaicinoids can boost metabolism by 4–5% per day, potentially making it easier to lose weight.

In addition to boosting metabolism, capsaicinoid supplements have been shown to reduce abdominal fat and appetite so that people eat 50–75 fewer calories per day.

All of these factors help explain why regularly consuming chili peppers is associated with a significantly reduced risk of becoming overweight or obese over time.

While this research is promising, it is important to note that many of these studies investigated the effects of capsaicin or chili peppers in general, not just jalapeños.

We all know that we should be eating the colour of the rainbow. But why?
Every single colour in the plant has its unique micronutrient called phytochemicals. Phyto comes from the Greek word (φυτόν) meaning 'plant' and these are the natural components produced by plants, generally to help them resist fungi, bacteria and plant virus infections, and also consumption by insects and other animals. Some phytochemicals have been used as poisons and others as traditional medicine. It is that powerful.
These brightly coloured veggies not only have powerful health benefits but can also add colour, fun and flavours to your table!

Nutritional information of Jalapenos
Jalapeños are low in calories and full of vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.
One raw jalapeño contains the following:
Calories: 4
Fibre: 0.4 grams
Vitamin C: 10% of the RDI
Vitamin B6: 4% of the RDI
Vitamin A: 2% of the RDI
Vitamin K: 2% of the RDI
Folate: 2% of the RDI
Manganese: 2% of the RDI
Like most fruits and vegetables, jalapeño peppers are a good source of fibre. One pepper provides 2% of the RDI for a person consuming 2,000 calories per day.

Jalapeños also contain lots of vitamin C and vitamin B6.

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that fights free radical damage and keeps your skin healthy and firm, while vitamin B6 is an essential nutrient involved in over 140 bodily reactions.

One of the most unique compounds in jalapeños is capsaicin, an alkaloid that gives peppers their characteristic spicy quality and is responsible for many of their health benefits.
