    Frozen Banana Cream

    A frozen banana is a yummy, heart-healthy alternative to ice cream. One banana contains 23 percent of the recommended daily value of potassium, an electrolyte essential for heart function. Studies have linked diets high in potassium to a decreased risk of both high blood pressure and stroke.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
