Paleo Stuffed Bell Peppers

 

I've been actively trying to live a low-carb life and found a recipe for this online.  Here's the direct link to the original recipe: https://www.ourpaleolife.com/paleo-stuffed-peppers/

This turned out so yummy. I highly recommend. I had to eat it cold one day because I didn't have a microwave. That wasn't the greatest experience, but oh well.  Lol!

French Onion Pork Chops with Steamed Broccoli

 

The pork chops were on sale at the market so I bought a pack.  I'm trying to eat low carb right now so I found a recipe online for a French Onion Pork Chop.  I had it with a side of steamed broccoli, which was also on sale. The flavor was good, but I overcooked it a bit.  So it was a little too dry.

Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus

 

My dad harvested some red bell peppers from his home garden for me.  I got a lot of goodies from his garden so couldn't eat them all in time.  I cleaned, prepped and freezed them for later use. I cut them in two different styles with the intention of adding them to chili and a stir fry.  However, I ended up using them to make roasted red bell pepper hummus.

Here's the link to the original recipe I followed: https://www.inspiredtaste.net/22016/roasted-red-pepper-hummus-recipe/

I used lime instead of lemon because that's what I had on hand and added a bit more olive oil because I wanted the texture smoother. I also air fried my bell pepper and didn't peel off the skin.

Apple Cider Vinegar Paleo Coleslaw


I made a cabbage soup and had some extra cabbage and carrots.  I would've used them all up if they fit in my slow cooker, but they didn't.  So I decided to make something else with it and I found this apple cider vinegar paleo coleslaw recipe.  Someone once told me that cabbage has more nutrients than lettuce.  I didn't believe it, but I googled it and it's true!

Easy Shepherd's Pie

 


I already had majority of the ingredients for this on hand so decided to give it a try.

Here is a link to the original recipe I found https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/easy_shepherds_pie/.  I just made a couple changes according to what I had - substitute for Worcestershire sauce and chicken instead of beef broth.

Here's the link to the Worcestershire substitute recipe: https://www.acouplecooks.com/worcestershire-sauce-substitute/

It turned out delicious.  But I think I might add a little less butter next time.
