Paleo Meal Plan for the Week + Paleo Italian Stuffed Peppers

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

I'm writing this post snuggled on the couch between the 2 dogs as the snow dumps down outside, wearing my PJs inside out (everyone knows inside out jammies bring snow days right?).

This weekend got a little wacky (see: spent 8 hours brunching & mimosaing Saturday, managed time poorly Sunday due to mimosa exhaustion) so I didn't do as much food prep as I wanted to, but this was the plan:

SO. On last week's leftover night we combined a few leftovers to make these delicious stuffed peppers:

Servings: 3 
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins

  • 3 organic bell peppers ($4.00)
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey ($2.00)
  • 1/2 onion, diced ($.50)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 pack sliced mushrooms ($1.00)
  • 2 Cups spinach ($2.00)
  • Leftover pizza sauce 
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon dried Basil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Brown the turkey on the stovetop in a medium sized frying pan with the Italian seasoning. Once the turkey is brown add the onion and garlic and mix in. Allow it to all cook together for about 5 minutes then add the spinach, mushrooms and pizza sauce. Mix together and cook for about 10 minutes.

Cut the tops off the bell peppers and cut out the ribs (I diced up the tops and mixed them in with the turkey stuffing). Spoon the turkey mixture into the hollowed out peppers, place on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 30 minutes.



  1. My stomach just growled violently at the sight of those delish looking stuffed bell peppers. Hope you're having a great week so far chica!

  2. I could use a mimosa right about now!

    Those stuffed peppers look good!!! I haven't made stuffed peppers in awhile. I am going to order that veggie spiralizer this week so I can hop upon the zoodle wagon. I can't wait!

  3. That looks delicious! I'll have to give it a try.

  4. I made some Mexican stuffed peppers last week so I'm super excited to try these! :)

  5. Mmmmm stuffed peppers. Why have I not thought of that lately???? Yum. I miss mimosas on Sunday

  6. Love me some stuffed peppers!! You did good :)
