Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Jump to recipe

I started a diet a few weeks ago, actually right after I left my day job and began writing full time. The writer’s curse is that we sit for long periods of time and then we gain weight. I’m trying not to let that happen.

So, I started on Optavia. As of this writing, I’ve lost five pounds in two weeks and it’s been relatively easy to be on. My goal is to lose 25 lbs. Fingers crossed.

The way Optavia works is that you eat pre-measured snacks every two and a half hours (honestly the snacks have been good and I’m not hungry), then one meal a day that is Lean & Green. Pinterest and my coach’s social media pages have been incredibly helpful to find recipes for the Lean & Green meals and they’ve been very tasty.

I posted this one the other day and readers were asking for the recipe. So, here you go folks. Let me know your thoughts on it. The recipe is not mine, it’s from Stacey Hawkins!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this and if you want to hear more about Otavia, drop me a note in the comments or you can email me from my home page on my website –
