Not Just Juicing Anymore…

Written by , Posted in Recipes

So I didn’t quite make it a full week on just juice, but I accomplished what I set out to do and that was resetting my palate and my mind so I can start making better choices when it comes to food.  I had juice for breakfast and lunch and in between but I was hanging out by myself tonight and really felt like cooking.  So…I looked through my Pinterest boards (Pinterest…my newest obsession, I’ll save that for a post all to itself) and found a healthy recipe that would use some of the fresh peppers and basil I already had at home.  I made Italian Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers with recipe inspiration from the beautiful Katie over at Dashing Dish.

In a skillet I browned 1 lb of ground turkey and then added a jar of Dave’s Gourmet Roasted Garlic and Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce, some Garlic Gold Italian Herb Seasoning, minced Garlic, chopped fresh basil, chopped frozen spinach, and freshly grated parmesan.

Then I added this mixture to some halved bell peppers…

I topped these bad boys with some more freshly grated parmesan and fresh basil and them baked them at 450° until they looked good to go.

I paired my pepper half with some homemade garlic bread that I made with a spread I found at the farmer’s market a few weekends ago.  Dinner was delicious and I really savored every bite.  The juicing has really helped me slow down and enjoy the food I’m eating.  It made me start craving fruits and vegetables and other healthy choices.  It helped me remember to always take a step back and ask myself “Am I really hungry right now?” when a craving comes on.  I plan to keep on juicing for at least the near future, at least once a day if not more.  It helped me feel more energized and I even lost 4 lbs along the way.  If you’re looking to jump start a healthy change in your life I would definitely recommend giving juicing a try….in the short 4 days that I was strictly drinking juice, it helped me gain a lot of perspective about my eating habits and what I need to change.
