HEALTHY SOUTHWESTERN STUFFED YELLOW PEPPERS
Healthy Southwestern Stuffed Yellow Peppers
Recently, I participated in a blogging event hosted by Winos and Foodies called "Taste of Yellow" to support the LiveStrong campaign. The idea was to prepare something using a yellow food as a main ingredient. I decided to do stuffed yellow peppers. I love yellow peppers but I rarely eat them. I think I just forget about them when buying green or red! Yellow foods provide excellent benefits, like supplying carotenoids, which can improve your eye health as well as protect against cardiovascual disease and some cancers. Being that this was in support of a healthy cause, I wanted to make sure my stuffed peppers were very nutritious. Using chicken sausage and brown rice made these a protein-filled, heart-healthy choice.
