We asked HealthKick nutrition expert, Natalie Holbrook to share a nutritious meal for our members to try during our May Challenge. All you need is a few veggies, chicken and spices to create something healthy and delicious!

 Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients:

  • 4 bell peppers (your choice of color, although red is packed with the most nutrition – 11x more beta-carotene and 1.5x more vitamin C than the others!)
  • 2 4-6 oz chicken breast, chopped (can replace chicken breast with turkey, beef, black beans, baked tofu, tempeh or any alternate protein)
  • 2 medium zucchinis, chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups raw cauliflower rice
  • Feel free to add any other veggies, herbs or seasonings of your choice like mushrooms, sweet potatoes, kale, cilantro, parsley, etc. Get creative!

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of a baking dish.
  2. Cut off the tops of the peppers and discard the seeds and ribs.
  3. Heat a pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken or your preferred protein. Once chicken is cooked through and no longer pink, about 8-12 minutes, drain any excess drippings from the pan.
  4. Add the onion, zucchini, Italian seasoning and salt to the pan with the chicken. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables have softened. 
  5. Add the garlic and cook for three minutes.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cauliflower rice, mix well.
  7. Stuff the peppers with the chicken, veggies and cauliflower rice filling. Place the peppers so that they are standing up right in the prepared baking dish. Cover with foil or a lid and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the peppers are very tender.
  8. Enjoy!
