Italian Stuffed Roasted Red Pepper

One of the hardest things about trying to improve your diet is all the cooking you have to do on your own! This is where cooking in bulk and making meals that can be turned into other meals comes in very handy. Below you will find the recipe for Italian Stuffed Roasted Red Peppers.



Ingredients for stuffing  :
Eggplant
Red Pepper
Roasted tomatoes in olive oil
Red Onion
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
Rosemary
Garlic Cloves
Fresh Basil
Coconut oil (for sauteing)
Salt and Pepper to taste

*I apologize that there are no amounts here, I usually eyeball it!

Method:
1. Brown Pork and Beef in skillet and set to side (you may use all pork or all beef - this is just what I had)
2. Chop veggies in about 1/2 inch cubes: eggplant, red onion, roasted tomatoes
3. Finely chop fresh garlic and basil
4. Saute all veggies and spices in coconut oil about 5 minutes, add meat, mix well
5. Cut tops off of bell peppers and discard all seeds, place on baking sheet to be stuffed
5. Stuff Red bell peppers with meat mixture and put in the oven @ 375 for about 20-25 minutes until peppers reach desired softness


Breakfast: Since I can't get enough of the Italian-seasoned mixture that was used to stuff the peppers I decided to incorporate it into breakfast. This consisted of Italian blend of beef, pork and vegetables with spinach sauteed in coconut oil, roasted red peppers and two "folded" eggs.

  2. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from big medical journals are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world around!
