Stuffed green bell peppers from Mom's recipe..a great Sunday meal!

Note: You can use ground beef instead of ground turkey, but the nutritional facts will be different--the facts posted are for turkey. I find they taste just as good with the turkey.

My Husband loves meatloaf but I hate to make it because it's so high in calories and fat. I found this wonderful recipe in a wedding cookbook, and Turkey works great in it. Delicious and super moist! Long cooking time though, so good for a hearty Sunday night meal.

On a reduced carbohydrate diet, but craving tacos? This taco salad gets you all of the taste, but only a fraction of the carbs!

Leave out the tomatoes and save an extra two carbs per serving.
