THE BEST Stuffed Peppers Ever

My family LOVES stuffed peppers and the best thing is you can make them out of basically whatever you have on hand! BUT THESE, these are the go to Peppers in our house 😍 You will not be disappointed!

Ingredients:

6 large Bell Peppers ( I prefer a mix of orange, red and green)

1 lb Ground beef (I use elk or venison)

1⁄2 cup onion, Chopped

1/2 can tomato paste

3 fresh tomatoes, diced

1 cup rice of your choice (I prefer brown or jasmine) **Busy mom tip: I cook my rice in the instant pot the day before

1 cup water (for cooking rice)

1 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 cup Mexican cheese blend, Shredded

Directions:

Cut off the tops of peppers; discard seeds and membranes, chop peppers in half length wise.

Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well.

*in a separate pot put water bring to boil add rice cook until rice is soft – unless using precooked rice like I do.

In a skillet cook ground beef, onion till meat is browned and onions are tender.

Add tomatoes, paste, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire, and rice.

if needed add more water.

add rice to beef mixture.

Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat/rice mixture. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet lined with foil.

Bake, covered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. in the last 5 minutes add any remaining cheese to the top of the peppers.

Best Green Juice Recipe! 

  Fruits and veggies are so important for a balanced diet. They help maintain our gut health, fight disease, nourish our body and flush our systems! 

  This green juice recipe is perfect for Boosting Metabolism, Immune Health, a Digestive Aid and more! And when used properly with a healthy diet it will increase weight loss by eliminating toxins! 

  Whether you are an avid juicer or you are more like me and have never really loved juicing I guarantee you will LOVE this recipe!

  Now I recommend you juice at least once daily in combination with a healthy diet to see maximum effects of the juice. I am not an advocate of complete juice cleanses or liquid diets but rather daily nutrition in a balanced and properly portioned diet.

  If you do choose to juice for an entire day and use this juice as a cleanse it is a perfect mix to make 3 times daily, however do not maintain and entirely liquid diet for longer than 3 days or it can do potential harm to your body instead of good. 

Here is my favorite juice recipe!

Ingredients

  • Apples – 1.5 medium (3″ dia) 364g
  • Cucumber – 1/2 cucumber (8-1/4″) 301g
  • Ginger Root – 1 thumb (1″ dia) 24g
  • Kale – 6 leaf (8-12″) 210g (2 big handfuls of chopped)
  • Lemon – 1/2 fruit (2-3/8″ dia) 42g

I recommend Granny Smith apples but you can use whatever you have on hand 🙂 Many people enjoy adding 4 celery stalks as well but I prefer to leave it out 🙂 

Please let me know what you think and if you have a favorite juice recipe I would love to hear it!

Best Veggie and Chicken Stir Fry – Sodium Free!

Tonight for dinner: Veggie and Chicken Stir Fry with soba noodles!
Recipe: great with or without the noodles, and delicious served with brown rice
Spice mix:

2 tbsp ground ginger

2 tbsp garlic powder

2 tbsp onion powder

2 tsp red pepper flakes

*mix together in a bowl and set aside*
– Add about 2tbsp coconut oil to your wok and heat on high, add: 1/2 Spice mix
– add 3 thawed and sliced chicken breasts
– cook on high until cooked through
-remove chicken from wok and set aside
– add 1 more tbsp of coconut oil to the wok and heat
– add your sliced veggies of choice

I use: Sliced mini sweet peppers, a sliced onion and tomatoes – other great options I have tried are zucchini, broccoli, snap peas, carrots and celery
– add 2 tbsp minced garlic
– Cook on high 3-4 minutes
– add noodles (optional)
– cook 3 more minutes
– add the other half of the seasoning and the chicken back into the wok and cook for about 1-2 more minutes on high
Serve while hot and enjoy!
ADDITIONAL NOTE to those following the Fix Portion Plan like me:

Soba Noodles are made out of buckwheat, which is an approved Fix portion food BUT these are not technically on the list of approved foods, I choose to use them anyway rarely and portion is key! I load up my plate with veggies and chicken first and then add about 1/2 yellow container to my meal and count it as a full yellow just to be safe 🙂

The choice is of course personal where to moderate items like this and what works for your family, I do not recommend using items that are not made from ingredients on the approved list at any time 🙂
