S’mores Shakeology

Enjoy this tasty S’mores shakeology recipe!!  It has great flavor, and you can sneak in some greens without ever tasting them!  Most of the s’mores recipes I’ve seen have called for graham cracker crumbs, but being gluten-free that can be difficult for me.  So I omitted them – and it still had great flavor!

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

  • Print

Ingredients

  • ½ cup brown rice, cooked
  • ½ lb lean ground turkey
  • 2 red bell peppers, cap cut off and seeded
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 fresh tomato, diced
  • 2-3 tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup Colby jack cheese, shredded
  • Olive oil spray (I use Pam)

Directions

  • Cook brown rice as directed
  • Preheat oven to 375degrees
  • Cut tops off of bell peppers and remove seeds/whites
  • Spray oven safe baking dish with olive oil and place cleaned peppers in it
  • Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium heat; add onion and garlic and saute until fragrant
  • Add the ground turkey to the skillet and brown
  • After ground turkey is browned, add tomatoe, oregano and basil, and jalapeno
  • Mix well and cook for about 5 minutes
  • Add cooked rice and parmesan, mix well and blend together
  • Once cooked through, begin stuffing each bell pepper with the cooked mixture. Pack tightly in bell peppers.
  • Place baking dish (with packed bell peppers) in oven for about 30 minutes
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle Colby jack cheese on top, and place back in oven for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

These stuffed bell peppers are so delicious and are great on their own – I honestly ate mine with a bit of sriracha sauce added on!

Miscellaneous

  • Aluminum foil
  • Baking Sheet

Directions20160608_092038

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees20160608_092342
  • Scrub each beet and cut off leaves/stem close to the tip20160608_092438
  • Wrap each beet loosely in aluminum foil
  • Place foil wrapped beets on baking sheet20160608_092700
  • Place baking sheet in oven, and cook for 45-60 minutes. Check beets every 20-25 minutes to ensure that they are not burning; if they look dry add some water to each (about a tablespoon per beet) and re-wrap
  • When a fork can be inserted into the beet easily, they are done
  • Remove beets from oven, allow to cool
  • Peel each beet. Hold with paper towels and use those to peel the skin away; this will prevent your hands from staining20160608_110936

These beets are great for use in salads, as a side, or alone as a healthy snack!
