Less than 2 weeks left for IAM!

Last night Myriam helped me make delicious stuffed bell peppers! I even have extra for lunch today. Here's what we did:

Cut a red bell pepper in half, set one side aside and dice up the other half. Cut eggplant, onion, and orange bell pepper into small pieces and then saute them up in a pan with coconut oil and spices. While the veggies are cooking down, cook some chicken sausage in another pan and once that looks almost ready (still a little pink) add to the veggies and stir them all up together. Then all you have to do is stuff them back into the other half of the bell pepper and cook it in the oven for another 30 min. Delicious!

I served them with some brussel sprouts. I also attempted to make kale chips but they were an absolute failure. Lots of smoke emitted from the oven and I was left with black, charred pieces. They definitely did not become the good crunchy pieces that Mel highlighted on her blog. Lisa tried to make me feel better about them by tasting them but they were pretty burnt! Whoops!

See Zach, look at all those nutritious vegetables! :)
