Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Phase #1:Place a pot on the stove and add in one cup of water and half a cup of long grain white rice (and some black beans if you like). Turn the heat on medium and bring it to a boil. Take a frying pan and turn the burner on medium. Using a drizzle of oil, add one pound of ground beef (or ground turkey if preferred) and cook until done.

Phase #2:

Take six red peppers (or if you’d rather you can use green or yellow) and remove the tops. From there, eliminate the middle of the peppers. On a baking dish, place the green peppers upright.

Phase #3:Drain the rice and place it in a bowl. Add in the beef as well as one eight ounce can of tomato sauce, a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder, a dash of pepper and salt, a quarter teaspoon of onion powder and one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Mix well.

Phase #4:

Place an identical amount of the mixture in each pepper. In a bowl, add one teaspoon of Italian seasoning and one eight ounce can of tomato sauce. Mix together and drizzle over the peppers. Bake the stuffed peppers for one hour in the oven at three hundred and fifty degrees.

Simple, Healthier Food Replacements For Healthier Weight Loss

Sometimes, unfortunately, there are certain food items that you shouldn’t consume while on a diet. Instead of focusing on what you can’t have while trying to lose weight, focus on what you can do to replace the foods you love to help your weight loss.

I’m going to share five simple, healthier food replacements to aid in your weight loss. Give them a try and see how delicious they can be while being much healthier for you.

Unhealthy Version = Mashed Potatoes

Healthy Food Replacement = Cauliflower Mashed

Cauliflower is a very healthy vegetable that contains a high vitamin C content and is virtually fat free. Potatoes are something you should only eat sometimes while dieting. So try cauliflower mashed and see how delicious it can be while helping you to lose weight. I’m going to let you in on a simple mashed cauliflower recipe that is incredibly healthy and incredibly scrumptious.The Mashed Potatoes Alternative Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup of cauliflower
1 tablespoon of oil
1 teaspoon of Butter
Pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon of milk
¼ cup of green onions
1 teaspoon of parsley

Cut up one cup of cauliflower and a quarter cup of green onions and place them in a frying pan with one tablespoon of oil. Cook until cauliflower is done. Place the cauliflower and green onions in a bowl and mash them up. Then add one teaspoon of butter, a pinch of salt, one teaspoon of low fat milk and stir. Sprinkle one teaspoon of parsley and then serve.

Unhealthy Version = PancakesHealthy Food Replacement = Oatmeal Pancakes

Pancakes are delicious BUT they contain a type of carbohydrate that actually increases your blood sugar. So it’s safe to say you should stay away from typical pancakes and pancake mixes. Oatmeal pancakes will help boost your weight loss as oatmeal is a natural fat burner. So definitely worth making instead of regular pancakes. Here is how you make oatmeal pancakes.

The Healthy Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients:

1 cup of oatmeal
2 egg whites
¼ cup of whole wheat flour
1 cup of buttermilk
½ teaspoon of baking soda
1/8 teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of baking powder
½ cup of diced walnuts (optional)
1 tablespoon of melted butter
optional: banana, raisins, blueberries or other berries

In a bowl, add one cup of buttermilk and one cup of oatmeal. Put in one tablespoon of melted butter and the two egg whites. Mix well. In a separate bowl, add a half a cup of diced walnuts, a quarter cup of whole wheat flour, an eighth of a teaspoon of salt, half a teaspoon of baking soda and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Stir. Combine the two bowls together and cook in a frying pan.

Unhealthy Version = Hash Browns

Healthy Food Replacement = Squash Brown

Hash browns are unhealthy for you while on a diet. Period. When trying to lose weight, try squash browns. They are actually quite delectable. Give it a shot and taste for yourself. All you require to make the squash browns are grated squash stirred with an egg white. Shape to make them round and broil them in the oven. It’s simple, healthy and an aid to weight loss.

Unhealthy Version = Pizza

Healthy Food Replacement = Pizza Pita

I absolutely love pizza. But it’s typically a no no when trying to lose weight. It’s one food that I just can’t live without. So instead of scarfing down on unhealthy pizza, I make the healthier version that I came across that satisfies my pizza cravings and helps me with losing weight.

For making a pizza pita you need one whole grain wrap laid out. You add a teaspoon of marinara sauce and then top with your favourite vegetables. Throw on a little bit of grated low fat cheese, cook it in the oven until the cheese is melted and voila healthy pizza!

Unhealthy Version = Breakfast Sandwich

Healthy Food Replacement = Egg English Muffin

I love breakfast sandwiches. It’s seriously a weakness of mine. But we all know fast food breakfast sandwiches are unbelievably high calorie and full of fat. Even when you make it at home it isn’t healthy for you when losing weight.

This version is healthier at just two hundred and forty calories and is low fat. It’s definitely an asset to weight loss. You need to scramble three egg whites. Lay it on top of a whole wheat English muffin. On top of that add one slice of low fat cheese, one slice of tomato and a half a cup of spinach. Place it in the oven until cheese melts

Try these healthy alternatives – and you will see how much easier it gets to lose weight and stay healthier.
