Low Carb Stuffed Bell Peppers

We made these delicious gems on our weekly cooking Facebook LIVE called “Let’s Get Cookin!” You can feed six people for literally less than $10!!!  This is a great blend of protein and fiber and veggies for a perfect meal.  We usually serve this with a nice salad!

Here are the ingredients!

6 Bell peppers
1 pound ground turkey
1 package frozen cauliflower rice
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 teaspoon Tony’s Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Slice the tops from the peppers and remove the insides including the seeds.

Place the peppers in a baking dish you have sprayed with cooking spray.

Brown the ground turkey in a skillet adding Tony’s, salt and pepper to taste. Be sure to season well since we are using turkey.

In a bowl combine the cooked turkey, (do not drain) cauliflower rice, onion, garlic and Parmesan cheese.

Divide mixture equally among the six peppers. Sprinkle additional Parmesan on top if desired!27652882_10155214985910983_1470771764_o

Place the baking dish in the oven and set a timer for 30 minutes. Check for internal temperature of 165 degrees. Add time if necessary for softer peppers

ENJOY!!!

In Health!

I am a Christian, wife, mother, author, certified nutritionist, kids nutrition specialist, holistic life coach, Personal Fitmess Chef, and Gut Health Educator. I am also a former 350lb food addict who is passionate about healthy living. I am a firm believer in the science and research that proves that sugar fake toxic "Frankenfoods" and excess carbs are the root of most of the illness we see today. Metabolic syndrome is taking over as the leading cause of preventable death in this country. I believe we all need a balanced lifestyle that includes eating well and eating lots of plants and lean proteins as well as moving our bodies and keeping our minds and hearts strong. I also believe in having good quality gut health supplements to provide what our bodies need that we just do not get due to environment and dietary reasons. I truly believe we are raising a generation of kids addicted to sugar and setting them up for a lifetime of disease and advocate limiting sugar and fake processed food consumption in children.
