Breakfast Stuffed Peppers

IMG_0508

I have never been one to skip breakfast.  However, mornings have been getting busier and busier lately.  Between blog meetings, MOH duties and morning workouts, I have been relying on on Daily Harvest smoothies and Perfect bars to help fuel my mornings.  I would be lying if I said I wasn’t wishing I could enjoy a nice hot, filling breakfast, especially until spring decides to finally show up.  Its why I am so excited about this easy reheat and eat breakfast.  The bell peppers make the perfect little edible container for this protein packed breakfast.
