21 Day Fix Approved Stuffed Peppers

So last night I made Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers and they were delicious!! Seriously even my kids loved it. My 9 yr old was skeptical at first and said "Wow mom, this is great!"
21 Day Fix Stuffed Peppers

~ 1/2 lb lean ground turkey
~ 1 cup frozen corn (uncooked)
~ 1 cup canned beans rinsed (I prefer kidney beans, some like black)
~ 1/3 cup chopped onion
~ 1 cup cooked brown rice
~ 1/2 can tomato sauce
~ 1/2 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
~ shredded cheese
~ 4 green peppers
~ spices to taste {I used garlic, pepper & southwest Mrs. Dash blend}

1. Cook your rice per directions on the box. 
2. Preheat the oven to 375.
3. Brown and season the ground turkey. I used garlic, chili powder and Mrs. Dash southwest blend. Drain off any grease. Add onions.
4. Cut off the tops of the green peppers and remove any seeds & insides with a spoon.
5. Combine all ingredients minus the cheese in a bowl. 
6. Spoon mixture into your peppers. Place on a foil lined pan. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top. 
7. Place in the oven and bake on 375 for approximately 40 minutes under the pepper is tender and bubbling. 

*You can also add additional cheese into the mixture before spooning into the peppers. 

**If you are following the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan, use 1/2 blue container of shredded cheese on top of your pepper. Your container measurements per pepper (1/4 of the recipe) would be equal to 
1 red, 2 green, 1 yellow and 1/2 blue.

21 day fixI have been doing the 21 Day Fix and loving it! This is such a unique program. You are given color coordinated portion control containers (green, red, purple, blue, yellow, orange) and based on your weight the book tells you how many of each color you eat each day. It includes a list of what foods go to which color (think green=most veggies, red=protein, purple=fruit, etc.) The book has gives some recipes. Then there are 30 minute workouts each day. Everyone can fit 30 minutes into your day to burn 300-400 calories! 

You can lose 10-15 lbs in just 21 days! 
Of course you can continue the program past the 21 days and do as many rounds as needed. If you are interested in learning more, send me a message! Either comment here, or email, facebook, etc. (links are on the side). 
You can view and purchase the program here
Or this one is the challenge pack (includes a month of Shakeology!!!)



  1. Those sound super yummy, but I just can't get over the smell of ground turkey cooking - I don't know what it is but the first time I cooked it was the last time I cooked it because I could not handle the smell!

    1. Maybe you got the wrong kind?? BUT you can totally do this with lean ground beef too ;)

  2. So, I came here for something completely unrelated to this post...but, ironically,I have really been considering the 21 day fix, I just don't know if I have the personal control to limit myself. LOL Maybe this is fate!
    Anyhoo...a few weeks ago, you commented on my blog about Colleen Hoover's book that was coming out soon. I bought it Sunday..and I am just about finished! Its amazing, parts of it are SOOOO relatable! If you haven't gotten it, you totally should! Thanks for the recommendation!

    1. Good to know you liked the book! I have it downloaded and am going to start it after I finish what I'm currently reading!!

      And yes, that must be FATE! haha You should totally do the 21 DF .. I seriously feel the best I've felt in a LONG time. It's not as hard as it sounds .. and I am so full eating the right kinds of food. Now, I'm still gonna have some wine tonight cause that's just how I roll - just once a week though! ;)
      Let me know if you have any questions :p
