Health benefits of capsicum: 5 Healthy Reasons To Eat Capsicum Boosts Metabolism: Capsicum is an extremely efficient weight loss tool, as it contains very few calories (23 calories per cup), it aids weight loss. Consumption of capsicum increases metabolism by lowering triglycerides, (which are stored fats in blood corpuscles). This helps in burning calories and keeping cholesterol in control. Therefore, weight gain from a high-fat diet is reduced. Capsicum also prevents indigestion by causing the secretion of digestive juices. Antioxidant Properties: Free radicals are present in the body, and are responsible for causing cellular damage, damage to nerves and blood vessels. Capsicum is a rich source of Vitamin A and C, which are both powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants help in fighting free radicals in the body and help in treating heart diseases, osteoarthritis, bronchial asthma, cataract etc. Cancer Prevention: It is believed that the compound capsaicin is capable of treating cancer by preventing carcinogens from binding with DNA. Simply put, capsicum has the ability to starve cancer cells and thereby kill them. It has been found that eating capsicum provides some protection from cancer, if consumed as part of regular dietary intake. Pain Relief: The compound capsaicin found in capsicum is believed to block the transmission of pain from the skin to the spinal cord. This effectively aids in treating neuralgia, pain associated with herpes zoster and postoperative amputation trauma, by providing relief from the pain. Strengthens Immunity: Capsicum is rich in Vitamin C and this stimulates the white cells to fight infection. This leads to strengthening of the body's immune system. Vitamin C and flavonoids present in capsicum also prevents respiratory problems like lung infections, asthma, emphysema and wheezing. These benefits shows that capsicum is healthy. Capsicum has been used traditionally for treating diverse ailments like cancer and asthma. Hence we can never run out of healthy reasons to eat capsicum.

just back from vacation. much good food, but this was the highlight: Krug and cornet in the garden to start. I was honestly shocked by how good the food was. probably 4-5 years since i'd eaten there.

oh sorry ... the french laundry in Yountville. i know there is a divergence of opinion, and i also know i get special treatment when i go, but for me it's as exciting today as it was when it opened, almost 20 years ago.

I've never been to FL (well, never eaten there I guess) but I have eaten at Per Se, and I will say, while it was the best meal of my life, I wouldn't go back unless someone else was paying. The wine list is a giant middle finger to the diner. 500%+ markups on widely available recent bottles.

it's a challenging list, no doubt. and there are no inexpensive wines on it. but there are less-expensive wines that match well with the food. i think they keep the prices jacked for the bonus boys who come in and insist on having first growths ... on their expense accounts. pretty common practice in restaurants though few push the limits tfl and per se do (of course, few are able to ... nice thing about being booked solid two months in advance every day for the last 20 years).
