So I thought I’d offer an alternative … Lemon!
These are seriously delicious. Watch your portion sizes! They’ll keep for a couple months in the freezer.

Course Main Course
Cuisine American
Servings 6 servings
Calories 317 kcal

Equipment

  • oven
  • baking dish
  • stove
  • large skillet
  • plate
  • paper towels
  • foil

Ingredients
  

  • 6 bell peppers any color
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lb grass-fed ground beef (225 g)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 onion small, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini finely diced
  • 4 plum tomatoes seeded and diced
  • Sriracha to taste
  • 2 cups riced & cooked cauliflower (250 g)
  • 1 cup sheep / goat milk feta (150 g)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC).
  • Prepare the peppers: Wash, cut off the tops (set aside) and remove the seeds and membrane. Place the peppers cut-side up in a baking dish just large enough to hold them upright. Finely chop the tops and set aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the beef, season with salt and pepper and cook, breaking up the lumps, until the meat is just beginning to brown. Move to a paper towel-lined plate to drain fat.
  • Carefully wipe out the skillet and add the remaining oil. When it’s heated, add onions and reserved chopped pepper tops and cook until soft, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and zucchini and cook for another minute. Add the tomatoes, stir, and season with salt, pepper, and a splash of sriracha.
  • Cook until everything is heated through, then stir in the beef and quinoa/barley/cooked rice cauliflower. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Stir in ½ cup (75 g) of the cheese.
  • Fill the peppers with the beef mixture and top each with a sprinkle of the remaining cheese.
  • Pour a small amount of water into the bottom of the baking dish and drizzle the peppers with a little olive oil.
  • Cover the pan with foil and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes. The peppers should be soft.
  • Serve with a side salad. Enjoy!

Notes

Time-saving tip: buy a bag of riced cauliflower at the grocery store and steam it, vs. preparing it from scratch.
Bonus tip: try using sheep or goat milk feta, vs. cow’s milk. The texture and taste difference is amazing. You’ll never go back to cow’s milk feta again.

Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

??So easy, so delicious!
You can make this at night and have a full breakfast waiting for you in the morning, and for the next day, too!
Plus, it lets you get a full serving of veggies at breakfast, without even realizing it. The trick is to grate the carrots very finely so they incorporate into the mixture.
The recipe calls for raisins but feel free to mix up the fruit. Dried cranberries might actually be my favorite!

Vampire Juice

?Have you ever noticed how so many juices are absolutely loaded with fruit!? This one is just as delicious, even though it contains a hefty dose of veggies. ?
It gets its “vampire” name from the beet, which turns the mixture a deep red.
I like to use this juice as a natural cleanser because of all the wonderful micronutrients it contains.
Course Drinks
Cuisine American
Servings 1 serving
Calories 280 kcal

Equipment

  • juicer (or blender)
  • fine mesh strainer (if needed)

Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup filtered water (125ml)
  • 6 carrots
  • 1 apple
  • 1 beet
  • 1 large handful spinach

Instructions
 

  • Place all the ingredients in your juicer and drink immediately! If you use a blender instead, remember to add water and then strain out the pulp using a fine-mesh strainer.

Notes

If you don’t have a juicer, you can make this in your high-speed blender. You definitely will want to add some filtered water to keep those blades moving – probably around ½ cup or so! Then, use a fine-mesh strainer to remove as much of the pulp as possible.

Vegan “French-fried” onion rings

??Sometimes you just need a crunchy topping for your veggie burger!
? Or … even better … a healthier substitute for canned onion rings that usually make an appearance atop green bean casserole!

Course Side Dish, Snack
Cuisine American
Servings 12 servings
Calories 24 kcal

Equipment

  • oven
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • Medium Bowl

Ingredients
  

  • 1 onion medium, halved, sliced, and separated
  • 1 cup almond milk (250 ml) or other non-dairy milk, plain unsweetened
  • cup almond flour (30 g)
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the onions and almond milk in a medium bowl and let sit for 15 minutes. Drain the nut milk and return the onions to the bowl.
  • Add the flour, pepper and salt to the bowl and toss to coat the onions.
  • Spread the onions over the baking sheet in a single layer, and spray generously with the cooking spray. This coating of oil will help the onion rings become crispy as they cook.
  • Place in the oven and bake for about 25 minutes, stirring twice during the cooking (every 8 minutes or so). They are done when the onions are tender, with a crisp exterior. Enjoy!!
