1 cup water (for cooking rice)

1 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 cup Mexican cheese blend, Shredded

Cut off the tops of peppers; discard seeds and membranes, chop peppers in half length wise.

Cook the whole green peppers, uncovered in boiling water for about 5 minutes; invert to drain well.

*in a separate pot put water bring to boil add rice cook until rice is soft – unless using precooked rice like I do.

In a skillet cook ground beef, onion till meat is browned and onions are tender.

Add tomatoes, paste, salt, garlic powder, Worcestershire, and rice.

Stir in cheese. Stuff peppers with meat/rice mixture. Place in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet lined with foil.

  • – cook over medium high heat, flipping and stirring regularly, until browned and crispy 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Literally the best and fastest “grilled” sweet potatoes EVER!

  Bring to a boil in 2 cups water and add 1 tsp “better than boullion” chicken flavor, cover and reduce to simmer for 15 minutes and fluff with fork

Best Green Juice Recipe! 

  Fruits and veggies are so important for a balanced diet. They help maintain our gut health, fight disease, nourish our body and flush our systems! 

  This green juice recipe is perfect for Boosting Metabolism, Immune Health, a Digestive Aid and more! And when used properly with a healthy diet it will increase weight loss by eliminating toxins! 

  Whether you are an avid juicer or you are more like me and have never really loved juicing I guarantee you will LOVE this recipe!

  Now I recommend you juice at least once daily in combination with a healthy diet to see maximum effects of the juice. I am not an advocate of complete juice cleanses or liquid diets but rather daily nutrition in a balanced and properly portioned diet.

  If you do choose to juice for an entire day and use this juice as a cleanse it is a perfect mix to make 3 times daily, however do not maintain and entirely liquid diet for longer than 3 days or it can do potential harm to your body instead of good. 

Here is my favorite juice recipe!

Ingredients

  • Apples – 1.5 medium (3″ dia) 364g
  • Cucumber – 1/2 cucumber (8-1/4″) 301g
  • Ginger Root – 1 thumb (1″ dia) 24g
  • Kale – 6 leaf (8-12″) 210g (2 big handfuls of chopped)
  • Lemon – 1/2 fruit (2-3/8″ dia) 42g

I recommend Granny Smith apples but you can use whatever you have on hand 🙂 Many people enjoy adding 4 celery stalks as well but I prefer to leave it out 🙂 

Please let me know what you think and if you have a favorite juice recipe I would love to hear it!
