21 Day Sugar Detox - Day 5

Day 5 was delicious - and my headaches are gone.  I am still cooking for each meal - today though, I ate three meals that were prepared on Day 4 or earlier in the week.  I had N'Oatmeal with a half banana and sliced almonds for breakfast, banola and coffee for a snack, chili, carrots and almonds for lunch.  All of these were prepared ahead of time.  :)    Dinner was a stuffed vegetable bell pepper and bacon basil cauliflower rice.

Stuffed vegetable bell peppers (makes 4)

4 bell peppers
1/2 lb of ground beef
1 small zuchinni
1/2 pint of canned tomatoes
1 small (6 oz) can of tomato paste
spices to taste (I used a bit of chili powder, oregano and chili pepper flakes)

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Brown the ground beef in a skillet.  Discard any extra grease.
  3. Cut the tops off the bell peppers.  Remove the core from the pepper "bowls" and discard the cores and seeds. Place the three pepper "bowls" into a baking dish or pan. 
  4. Remove the stems from the tops and chop up the remaining pepper flesh from the tops.  Add the chopped peppers to the ground beef pan and soften just a little.
  5. Grate the zuchinni and squeeze the grated vegetable in a paper towel to remove excess water.
  6. In a bowl, mix your spices, canned tomatoes, tomato paste, ground beef, grated zuchinni and chopped peppers.  
  7. Stuff into the peppers and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
