Easy Egg-Stuffed Bell Peppers

I’ve made great progress toward my weight loss goal this year. I tracked my calories with MyFitnessPal. I also tracked my movement with Fitbit*and used the data from both to establish good eating and exercising habits. Additionally, I’ve made some changes to some of my regular meals to better incorporate protein and fiber into my diet.

One of my favorite calorie-friendly, high-protein, high-fiber breakfast recipes this year is egg-stuffed bell peppers. The bell peppers are a great source of vitamin C. Better still, the eggs keep me full without making me feel bloating or sluggish like some other proteins.

Fun, Flavorful, and Filling

Egg-stuffed bell peppers are a fun recipe that take very little effort to put together, so it’s great for those lazy recovery days or for giving you a boost after a workout.

Egg-stuffed bell peppers are also a colorful way to squeeze more veggies into a meal without sacrificing flavor or texture. Eat them as an entry, side, or appetizer. And feel free to get creative with the toppings – pick your favorite cheese, throw in some spinach, or sprinkle some bacon crumbles to amp up your meal.

This recipe works well with both regular sized bell peppers and mini bell peppers. However, you’ll want to crack the eggs and mix the ingredients in a small container if you choose the smaller sized peppers.
