Prep: Bell Peppers

When these babies go on sale, or when I am lucky enough to get a haul from POW-WOW, I stock up on bell peppers!  Look at how many green bell peppers were included at one week’s POW-WOW distribution!  When you consider that green bell peppers are a good deal at 50-cents each, and usually run $1.00 each, this was an amazing deal!

Even though my kiddo doesn’t care for them, my husband and I love them.  I like to have strips of fresh bell peppers ready for hummus dippers, salads and wraps.

And, if they are already cut into strips, weeknight fajitas are a breeze!  Here’s a recipe for Salmon Fajitas that your family will love!

Stuffed bell peppers are easily prepped on the weekend to enjoy for dinners on busy nights as well.  Just stuff with your favorite beans, rice, quinoa, corn and salsa…. top with cheese if you like…. heat in a 350 F degree oven until the peppers are soft, about 30 minutes!

Remember – prepping is your friend!  Take a little bit of extra time to optimize your meal planning and eat healthier in the end!

Cheers, Jenn
