Crockpot Recipe: Fat Loss Friendly Stuffed Peppers

Honest moment: I grew up in a very traditional southern cooking home, so stuffed peppers were frequently on our dinner table.  And I never ate them.  Something about the ooze of the grease and the weird texture that the pepper had taken on… As a kid, I was not interested. 

But as an adult, green peppers may be my all time favorite vegetable. 

And when I found this fat loss friendly, cleaned up recipe that was made in the CROCK POT, I was so totally in! 

They turned out fantastically! I went ahead and made four peppers and ate off them all week, and even had extra “filling” that I cooked as meatballs in the same crock pot (just in between the peppers). 

I couldn’t believe how tasty and easy they were.

Give it a try and let me know what you think! Would be perfect for couples or busy families – or for us single girls too. 😉
