21 Day’s of Simple Weight Watcher Meal’s…Day 14

April 11, 2014 — Leave a comment

Keeping it short today. Heading to Dallas this afternoon, and lots to do! I won’t have a post on Saturday, but hopefully will get one in on Sunday when I get home.! I am so excited for this weekend’s visit to see Tess for The Color Run that we have been training for. I’ve ran 3 miles a few times now, so I know I’m ready! 

I tried a couple of new recipes yesterday that I liked! I hope you do too! Sorry these 21 Days of Meal’s have not been consistent, but they have gotten me to try a few new recipes and eat a few of my staple foods in a variety of ways!

Beef, Sweet Potato and Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

I adapted this recipe from Skinnytaste.com. You can click HERE and check out one of her awesome recipes for Turkey Stuffed Peppers. She has a Santa Fe version that I want to try too! Her peppers have Turkey and Rice in them. I went with Beef and Quinoa. I’m never sure on seasonings, so I used her recipe for a reference. I have an old recipe for Stuffed Peppers that uses Campbell’s tomato soup, and I love that recipe. At Skinnytaste, she uses tomato sauce and chicken broth, and I decided that probably had a lot less sodium in it, so I went that route! I don’t eat a ton of red meat, but I still love it. I made these with Lean Ground Beef and had NO regrets! The Sweet Potato? I have no idea. It just sounded good.
