What's For Dinner? "Light Stuffed Bell Peppers" - 9 WW Points

Image
Today I'm sharing one of my own recipes. I'm always looking for ways to make my favorite childhood dishes lighter. In this recipe I replaced the ground beef with 93% ground turkey and the long grain white rice with brown rice. I also added chopped Kale which adds lots of extra Vitamins A and C without changing the taste. 

Light Stuffed Bell Peppers - 9 Weight Watchers points

Ingredients

4 medium sized bell peppers ( I like to use different colors but green are fine as well)
1 tsp olive oil
1 medium onion, minced
12 oz 93% lean ground turkey
2 tbsp minced garlic, divided
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, drained
3 cups chopped fresh kale
1 1/2 cups cooked cooked rice
Salt and pepper to taste
4 tsp seasoned bread crumbs (optional)
1 (28oz) can crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp minced fresh oregano

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2. Bring about a gallon of water and 1 tbsp of salt to a boil. Add the bell peppers and push them down until they stay submerged under the boiling w…

Image
I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on this deal since I just ordered mine.

I have been using Olay Professional Pro X Clear Acne Protocol, which includes Olay Professional Pro X Clear UV Moisturizer SPF 15 ever since P&G sent the products to me for a review and I'm hooked - I mean like a customer for life kind of hooked! I've never used anything for my skin that makes it look and feel the way it does right now.

That said....these products are not cheap but I'm determined to continue using them - so I'm on the hunt for a great deal and I found this today. Amazon has the Olay Professional Pro X Clear UV Moisturizer SPF 15 for $8.79 (regularly $33) + $2.99 shipping. I've been looking for a couple of weeks now and this is the best price just keep in mind that prices on Amazon can change at any moment so get it early if you want it.
