“You had me at ‘cheeseburger‘”

Who said you can’t enjoy your favorite foods while losing fat, beating cravings and enjoying more energy throughout your days?

As a foodie health practitioner, I love this flavor-rich, low sugar impact recipe for “cheeseburger”-stuffed bell peppers. It’s one of my clients’ favorites to date too!

The variety of whole food stars in this recipe make it not only a delicious meal, but one that is packed with waist-slimming fiber and protein, free-radical-fighting antioxidants and immune-boosting vitamin C just to name a few.

Scratch the cheeseburger itch in a much healthier way with this yummy recipe.
