Recipe of the Week: Stuffed Pepper Boats

For the last two weeks we pre-made these amazing “Pepper Boats” on Sundays and then ate them all week for lunch. It’s been EXTREMELY helpful in staying on track in the midst of a busy or stressful day. We keep a tray in the fridge and pop 1 or 2 in the microwave at lunch. Last week we filled them with just rice, beef and cheese but this week we tried to clean it up a bit by taking out the rice, adding broccoli, and using ground turkey instead of beef. FAB-U-LOUS.

Without further ado, here’s the recipe. Cook them up and you’ll thank yourself every day til they are gone!
