1 Smoothie + 2 Shakes

I love smoothies and protein shakes. I love making them in the winter when I tend not to eat as many fruits and vegetables as I should (give me allll the cheesy bread), but I love them in the summer by the pool, too.

I've been drinking more and more smoothies recently because it's the only meal prep I can actually get behind. I love just dumping things in my Magic Bullet and having something healthy to sip on during slow afternoons at work! Plus, unlike meal prepping veggies/meats/rices/etc, smoothies don't get soggy! You double (or triple!) any of these suggested recipes and save them for 3-4 days. Definitely a win-win!

 

P.S.: For your reference, I'm referring to a blended drink with fruit when I say smoothie, and no fruit when I say shake! Enjoy.

VEGETERIAN STUFFED BELL PEPPER

I've been trying to cook more exciting recipes in 2018. So far, so good. I ended up buying the Tone It Up nutrition guide to try and get my health in check and get inspiration for new recipes. It definitely worked and I have been loving what I've been eating! (Not to mention I feel better and I have more energy!)
  

So far, this recipe is by far my favorite. I've adapted it a little from the original recipe, but the idea is the same. It's simple to make and full of nutritious, whole foods. It's vegeterian, but could easily be made with meat (switch veggie patty mix for ground turkey) or vegan (just don't add cheese!).
