(I like to switch out the rice for quinoa, the beef for chicken and add some feta on top to change it up)
1lb ground beef
1/2 cup uncooked brown rice
1 cup water
6 bell peppers
2 cans tomato sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Place the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 20 minutes. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the beef until evenly browned.
Remove and discard the tops, seeds, and membranes of the bell peppers. Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward. (Slice the bottoms of the peppers if necessary so that they will stand upright.)
In a bowl, mix the browned beef, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper. Mix the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl, and pour over the stuffed peppers.
Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, basting with sauce every 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender.
1 scoop protein powder
½-1 cup water or milk of choice (dairy free or regular)
½-1 cup frozen berries
1 tbsp seeds of choice – chia, flax, pumpkin
1 tbsp nut butter
½ -1 cup frozen spinach
1 tsp cocoa powder
How to choose a protein powder:
• 1 scoop of powder should be the equivalent of 25-30g of protein if it is a non-vegan source
• Whey protein should be considered, unless you have a sensitivity to dairy, then you can choose a bovine source or a plant based protein
• If you choose a plant based protein, ensure it has multiple protein sources – vegan protein sources only contain certain amino acids, we required a blend of sources to get the full spectrum of amino acids that we get from animal sources of protein
