Got Garlic,

In reference to Bell Peppers, especially the Green, many people find them hard to digest as well.

I agree, There are always exceptions to "the rule" ..

Have a lovely Sunday.

I learned something. I didn't know that about bell pepper skins. From what I read the other than green are better but not by much.

Tomato and potato skins are mostly indigestible, too. They're a great source of insoluble fiber, though.

In this case, I think the exception *is* the rule. I have inflammatory bowel disease. For about 10 years, I had a narrowed area of my colon from intestinal inflammation and scarring and I couldn't eat high fiber foods because the body doesn't break them down, so they could cause a blockage. I once spent four days in the hospital with a blockage aft eating a Japanese seaweed salad. The human body doesn't have the enzymes that break down cellulose, so it's goes right through.
