Paleo Stuffed Peppers

stuffed-peppers

When trying to follow a healthy paleo diet, you have to mix things up enough or food turns into a boring necessity instead of a pleasure. It can get very boring eating grilled chicken and veggies or bun-less burgers week after week. If you’re like me, you don’t have time to cook gourmet, exciting meals day after day. The trick to dieting is having food prepared that you enjoy so you stick with your diet instead of going for the quick and easy drive-thru, or in my case, a black and white milkshake from In-N-Out.
