Stuffed pepper

Stuffed pepper

So ever since trying quinoa a few months ago I’ve been in love. We made stuffed peppers that were so easy and great! The quinoa is cooked as normal then mixed with ground turkey meat and tomato sauce, put in a pepper and baked for 45 minutes. The yellow peppers are so sweet and the filling is amazing. Quinoa is a little high in carbs but unlike white rice it has so much fiber and vitamins so the swap is well worth it!

Fish dinner

Fish dinner

Tonight for dinner we had fish because we ate meat on friday and my mother thought we should pretend today was a friday to make up for it. (even though I already ate chicken today) We had tilapia grilled with garlic, parsley, and black pepper with baked sweet potato (or regular potato for my dad who does not want to diet with us or like sweet potatoes). The potatoes were cut almost all the way through and drizzled with olive oil and pepper before being baked. On the side we had some corn and there was also peas but I HATE frozen peas! Yuck the texture is awful, any suggestions on how I can make them better? Anyway, dinner was great! Fish is so good for you and sweet potatoes are a healthy carb to incorporate into your diet! I just would have like green beans and/or a salad rather than just the corn and yucky frozen peas.
