This tasty weeknight meal can be prepped ahead and can be cooked in under 20-30 minutes! Even though it seems "fancy" it really is super easy with a few simple tips!
Tip #1: While your oven is pre-heating, wash the bell peppers, slice off their heads and slice in half. Put on a roasting pan face up (this makes them start to get a little tender before you cook them full on).
Tip #2: While oven is pre-heating, use Pre-chopped garlic, on a skillet over medium heat with olive oil. Add onion and then crumble over the beef mixture.
Tip #3: Make triple the amount of beef you would think to make! Why? You can make double or triple the recipe and freeze your stuffed peppers!! I put 2 halves in a tupperware and brought them to work the next day. The day after, I had Dan pop them in the oven to re-heat for toasty dinner leftovers.

Sweet & salty. Bright color & lots of antioxidants. This salad is a STAPLE, that I have on a weekly basis (typically a few times/week) for its taste and nutrition profile. Winter is a time to make the most of seasonal produce (AKA dark leafy greens and roasted root vegetables). Roasted Root Vegetables hold up well in the cold winter months, but they are available all year (hence it's a yearly staple for me!). Kale is a superfood for it's incredible Vitamin K, A, and C content. Vitamin K is known for it's benefit for blood clotting, bone health, and has been shown to help with blood sugar regulation. Kale is also a superfood for it's high antioxidant status that has been shown to prevent acute and chronic diseases. Kale has only 36 calories per cup, and 2-3 g protein, and 2-3 g fiber. As for Sweet potatoes, these incredible veggies are highest in vitamin A, helpful for vision and immunity. Sweet potato (1 cup baked) is 40 g carbohydrate, but also 4 g fiber, and 2-3 g protein. To top off kale and my orange root veggie favorites, you've got almonds in this salad which provide Vitamin E, Biotin, and their most famous nutritent - unsaturated fats. Almonds help with satiety, hormone and blood sugar regulation, and has been shown to be helpful in reducing cholesterol, helping with weight management, and managing blood sugar problems such as diabetes.
If not for all the nutritional benefits, this sweet and salty, colorful salad is always a weekly staple in my house for it's top notch taste!
