2014 Weekly Challenge #11 - Try a New Grain (or Two)!

Eating healthy, fiber-rich grains is a great way to improve your diet. Not only are they delicious and good for you, but whole grains also make you feel more satisfied and stick with you a lot longer. Because they are more filling, you usually eat less than you would a white, or refined, grain so you end up consuming fewer calories.

Your challenge this week: Try a new grain.

Here's a simple recipe to help you get started:

Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

These are uncooked and have marinara sauce added on top

Earlier this month Lorri Ann featured this recipe on her Fox 40 Mojo Monday segment.  We also made this recipe at our most recent Make Ahead Meal Session.
You can view the video of that segment here- Heart Healthy Meal For Your Loved One

You can learn to make other great meals like this one at our monthly Make Ahead Meal Sessions.  Space is limited so sign up today! Be sure to click on the Events tab to see the information on an upcoming session.

Before I get started, just wanted to share that I got a new job! SQUEEEE!!! I’ll tell you more about it another day because this is kind of a long post and I want to wax poetic about it at length. But I know a lot of you have been genuinely concerned for me and all the hell I’ve been going through lately, so I wanted to let you know that there is hope on the horizon once more. There is still a ton of stuff to catch up on bill-wise, and I’m still dealing with my stupid PHN and all the fun that brings with it (yeah, right), but it’s SO good to know I have a job again. Especially so soon after my other job closed down. Having the following recipe for dinner is fabulous way to celebrate! : )
