Clear room on the grill for these stuffed sons of bitches. They pack a lot more flavor and nutrition than some lazy, played-out veggie kebabs. And no, you don’t eat the stem; you throw it at whoeverthefuck brought veggie kebabs.
BASMATI STUFFED GRILLED PEPPERS 
FOR THE FILLING:
1 ½ cups brown basmati or other long grain brown rice
1 large tomato
1 large carrot
1 zucchini
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 ¼ teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon smoked paprika (if the store doesn’t have this then just leave it out. It’s not a fucking deal breaker)
2 cups water
1 tablespoon sherry vinegar (red wine vinegar would work too)
3-4 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
 
FOR THE BEANS:
1 ½ cups white beans or 1- 15 ounce can (You can use navy, cannellini, whatever kind of creamy bean you got)
2 tablespoons of chopped onion
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar (or whatever vinegar you’ve already used)
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ teaspoon oregano dried
 
4 large bell peppers
Fresh basil (optional)
 
Put the rice in a strainer and rinse that shit. Throw the tomato in a food processor and puree it into juice. You should get about a cup. You could also just use tomato juice here if you have that at your place already. Chop up the onion, carrot, and zucchini into pieces about the size of a dime. Take 2 tablespoons of the chopped onion and put it aside. You will use that shit in a minute. In a big pot heat the olive oil up over a medium heat. Add the big portion of onion and let it cook until it starts brown, like 5 minutes. Add the carrot, zucchini, oregano, thyme, and paprika. Cook for about 1 minute. Add the rice, pureed tomato, and water. Throw in a pinch of salt and bring it all to a boil. Once it is boiling, cover the pot, and reduce the heat to low so that shit simmers. Let it go for like 30-40 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked all the way.
While the rice cooks throw the beans, 2 tablespoons of onion from earlier, olive oil, vinegar, and oregano in the dirty food processor and run it until everything looks smooth. It’s cool if there still are some tomato bits in there. Add a little pepper and stir that shit in. When the rice is done, add the garlic, sherry vinegar, and lemon juice to it. Cover and let that sit for a goddamn minute. Taste the rice and add salt, pepper, or more seasoning until that shit tastes good enough to meet your standards.
Chop the bell peppers in half lengthwise and scrape out all the seeds. They aren’t hot and taste bitter so throw them the fuck away. Add a couple spoonfuls of the bean mixture inside each pepper and spread that shit around. Add spoonfuls of the rice until it is all nice and packed in. I got about half a cup of rice in each one of mine.
Heat up your grill to a medium-low heat. Spray it down with a little oil so that the peppers don’t stick. Spray the tops of each pepper lightly with oil too so those fuckers don’t dry out. Grill the stuffed peppers for about 10-12 minutes. You want the peppers to start to soften and get some good looking grill marks on them. Top with fresh basil and serve warm. 
Makes 8 stuffed peppers

    Cauliflower crust

    As some of you have been asking for the cauliflower crust recipe, I decided to write it down; I hope this helps.

    1) These are the ingredients I used: cauliflower, eggs, carrots and parsley. Of course you can skip the carrots or the parsley or even add other things.
    2) Shred the cauliflower, watch out for your fingers, it might hurt a little.
    3) Shred your carrots and add them.
    4) Cut the parsley to tiny pieces, add eggs, salt and pepper.
    5) Mix everything well!
    6) Get your pan and heat up some oil – I used olive oil.
    7) Fill the mixture inside of the pan, disperse it a little and put the top back on the pan.
    8) Wait about 8 minutes. As long as your cauliflower crust roasts, you can make a nice cup of tea and cut all other ingre
    dients that you want to put on top of your crust, be creative, everything is possible and absolutely delicious!

    9) Flip your crust -  It might be difficult and about to break – try to use a plate to flip it. Once you’ve managed this, let it roast on the other side for some more minutes.
    10) Now decorate it with anything you want and enjoy this healthy heaven!

    Happy 4th Everyone! I thought it was VERY necessary to show some respect to my country this morning by eating the colors of our flag! Luckily the majority of fruits in my fridge are red and blue. I took three mini whole grain toast and spread 1 tbsp of fat free cream cheese equally on…

My Tips for Making Your 4th of July BBQ a Little Healthier
Shrink your Plate! - A smaller space will leave less room to add tons of unnecessary calories to your plate. Studies have shown that people who use smaller plates tend to eat less. Try using a kid-size plate instead of the usual Hefty size!
Load up on the healthy stuff first! - Start by filling your place with salad, veggies and fruit. The fiber and water content of these foods will help you feel fuller sooner. Including foods with some oil and protein will also help with satiety. Pick your treats wisely!
Eat slowly and mindfully - By slowing down the pace at which you’re eating, and genuinely focusing on the food, you give your brain a chance to catch up to your stomach and realize it’s full. This is much easier to do when you’re socializing with guests, friends and family, because you can pause to chat.
Skip the processed carbs - Things like crackers, bread and chips have a ton of unnecessary calories that cause insulin spikes and leave little in the way of filling fiber. Try to choose the cleaner options that are surely available such as fruit, salad, and meat.
While you’re at it, skip the alcohol - While an occasional glass of wine or so is fine to incorporate in a healthy lifestyle, a giant margarita is not. Packing 600-800 calories and a ridiculous amount of sugar.. let’s just say there are far better options (ahem, H20 anyone?!)! If you’re going to splurge, have a beer or small glass of wine. Remember, drinking decreases self-control and can lead to overeating.
Dessert - If you’re going to have dessert, try to keep the portion size small. Splitting with a friend is a great way to avoid over-indulging!
I hope you all have a fantastic 4th of July! =)

What Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo Eats (almost every day):
Almonds- “It’s my number one go-to-snack!”
Special K Bars- “I like the meal replacement bars the best. No offense to the 90-calorie ones, but they just don’t do it for me! There’s more protein in the meal bars, and I think a high-protein diet with low carbs is a great choice.”
Sweet Potatoes- “I top them with cayenne pepper and a little salt… but not too much. Greek yogurt on top is also delicious.”
Vegetables- I think it’s easier to digest them when they’re steamed, as opposed to raw,” she says.
Pineapple- “Pineapple reduces swelling. You’re filmed that one very special day of the pageant, and you want to make sure you’re as ready to go as you can be.”
Dannon Light N Fit Yogurt- “It’s low in sugar and high in protein.”
Bananas- “We have little bags we pack specifically for touch-up makeup if you’re chosen for the top 16. I knew I had to sneak in my banana because nothing calms my nerves like it! I don’t know if it’s the potassium, but I need it before I get on stage because it always calms me down.”

    • Good for your brain - The antioxidant quercetin helps to keep your neurons and brain cells healthy. A study shows that this can help to prevent the free radical damage that can lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
    • Great for your bones - Phloridzin and boron increases bone density.
    • Lowers your cholesterol - Pectin lowes ‘bad’ cholesterol. People who eat two apples a day may lower their cholesterol by 16%!
    • Lowers your risk of cancer - Studies show that eating apples regularly could reduce the risk of breast, colon and liver cancer.
    • Aids weight loss  - Studies show that women who ate three apples or pears per day lost more weight whilst dieting than those who ate no fruit.

Benefits of broccoli:
lowers cholesterol
acts as an antioxidant
vitamin C, A, K & folate source
low calorie
improves heart function 
can reverse the effects of Diabetes
high in fiber
helps maintain healthy skin, nails and hair
good source of iodine (involved with the thyroid)
defends against cancer (B-vitamin source)
Best way to eat broccoli - raw! Lightly steaming is the next best way because too much heat can kill some of the nutrients in the broccoli.
