Now. I briefly mentioned that this Blog will be about FOOD, FASHION AND FAITH.. Meaning that every week or maybe even a few days a week ( depends on my school schedule) I will be ranting on and on about something from the above categories.
Sunday January 31st at the Harper Household was my night to cook.
DISCLAIMER: I am NOT a chef! I repeat I am NOT a chef!
Seeing as I am turning 25 in 2 months, the pressure to get my “sexy” on is at an all time high leaving me with no choice but to hit up the GOOD OLE GYM!
Sunday after a very uplifting Church Service I found myself wandering into Fortinoes ( Canadian Grocery Food Chain). The cause of this last minute trip was brought on by my desire to have my body on level S for my Birthday Dinner.
Level S: One Level above Level P-pretty, Two above Level C-cute.
After going back and forth in my mind with myself I knew that eventually all the Late Night Snacks and avoiding the stairs to take the Good Ole Elevator would catch up to me in some way and potentially ruin my “figure”.
The thing about me though is that I need motivation… I can assure you I will never want to do anything by myself especially when it comes to fitness and body image. So after deciding enough is enough and glaring at my muffin top through my bathroom mirror I decided to start my “diet”.
What kind of diet? You may be wondering.. What could I be doing to lose weight and to specifically lose it in all the right places…
Alicia’s Diet 2016:
- Eat less
- Workout more
- Cut back on pops and sugary drinks
- Eat more veggies than meat
- Pray more often ( my spirit needs cleansing too)
To kick start my attempt I decided to try out a recipe I saw a few girls at my school eating.
Stuffed Sweet Red Pepper
3 whole Red Peppers
1 box of organic Quinoa
1 pound of Lean Ground Beef
1 jar of Vodka Tomatoe Sauce
1 pack of MAC and Cheese Shredded Cheese Mix
Seasonings: Thyme,Paprika, Cayene, Jerk Seasoning, Seasoning Salt, Salt, Pepper
To quickly sum up how I made the stuffed pepper….
- Cook the Meat
- Clean out Pepper
- Cook quinoa
- Add all ingredients into pepper
- Top with cheese
- Bake for 20 minutes
