Skinny Stuffed Bell Peppers or Cake batter?

IMG_3352[1]

It is not easy for me to find the perfect balance in my life.  I am naturally an “all or nothing” kind of girl, especially where food is concerned. If I am eating “bad”, then I am eating bad; if I am eating “good”, then I am eating good!  Sometimes I struggle with having that favorite cupcake or candy and popcorn at the movies.  Usually when I say yes to those types of sweets,  I tend to eat bad all day, which leads to all week, which leads to waiting until Monday to eat healthy again!  Yes, balance is hard for me.IMG_2687[1]

 

 

 

I find this to be true in so many areas of my life, not just with food.  I am trying to learn that there is a good balance out there somewhere that will work for me.

The last two weeks have proven to be better.  I have enjoyed a healthier kitchen while still baking and tasting some of my favorite sweets as well as having a drink, in moderation, of course!  I found the scale did not go up!

Today I made one of my favorite things from the SKINNYTASTE website, Stuffed Bell Peppers.  I love how these taste, they fill me up and don’t add a ton of calories.

I made some with cheese and some without. If I pour salsa on them, I find I can do without the extra calories or flavor from the cheese.  I am not saying it is not better with cheese, because what is not better with cheese?  But I can still enjoy without!

I have used her recipes and cookbook many times and loved everything I have tried.  If you don’t already have her book, it is a great one to have on your kitchen counter!

    • I agree…I bet you would really like them. And I do love her cookbook. It is one of the first ones I bought when I decided to try to cook more at home and eat a little more healthy. Thanks for looking through my blog. I am looking forward to reading more of yours!! 🙂

  1. I’m very similar in that I either commit to being super healthy or just don’t bother at all… it’s hard to get a good compromise! But these stuffed bell peppers look really delicious 🙂

    • Thanks Emily! They really are delicious! And I laughed reading your latest post because I do the same thing with “tasty”. I see so many things I want to try and of course it looks so easy. But I never get around to doing it. So we both need to try one of those posts and share!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and I am looking forward to reading more of your cooking experiences and being part of the “real world” (as I tell my girls)!
