Losing Weight Project: Day 12/Lean & Green Stuffed Peppers

It's been a busy day -- worked this morning, had to run several errands, spent a couple of hours with my hairdresser...  I may regret my decision but I cut my hair; a lot of hair, actually... like 20 inches! ;)  My hair is shorter than I actually wanted but I was able to donate two hair lengths -- cancer clinic requires 10 inches, so two women somewhere will have hair now.  It feels good!  Especially since my hair grows quickly and so I will get the length I wanted in a couple of months.  Also, I decided to get highlights -- and they are not subtle as expected, either.  Oh, well -- going for redhead! ;)  S. will think I lost my mind when he sees me tonight but, oh well, he knows I live for adventure.

Lean & Green Stuffed Peppers
  • 1 bell pepper, sliced in half
  • 5 oz lean ground beef or turkey (used 93%)
  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • oregano
  • low-fat sour cream
  • fresh parsley, finely chopped
Saute tomato in olive oil.  Mix cooked tomato, ground meat, and spices.  Fill bell pepper halves.  Bake or steam (my preference) until done, approximately 40 minutes.  Serve with a dollop of low-fat sour cream and fresh parsley.
