If you’re following me on Instragram, you’ve probably noticed that I’m making an effort to be more health conscious in the foods that I’m preparing. Now, don’t get me wrong, I haven’t stopped all together. You’ll still be seeing decadent dessert recipes as well as some brand new cupcake recipes. They’ll just be in moderation. I’m making healthier choices especially when it comes to my main dishes, while continuing my love of the grill. Yep, the grill. These Quinoa Stuffed Peppers are the perfect side or main dish for grilling!

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

We are still in Summer mode here in NY because we don’t head back to school until the first week in September so I’m taking advantage of my husband’s grilling skills as long as possible. We made these Quinoa Stuffed Peppers just the other night and they served as my main dish and my husband’s side to go along with his BBQ Bacon Chicken Kabobs, which I might have snuck a bite or two of. Can you blame me?! They’re made with BACON! These stuffed peppers work well on the grill, but would work just as well in the oven. We just didn’t want to warm the house up so it was easy enough to throw a little tinfoil underneath each pepper and set them up to get a nice fire roasted char to them.

Since I’ve started eating healthier, which has meant more veggies and more gluten free snack options, I’ve also found that it makes me a bit gassier, which is not a fun experience.

CharcoCaps® ​is a unique, safe, dietary supplement that naturally absorbs and eliminates intestinal gas and bloating.
