    Limey Orange Smoothie

    Here’s a smoothie that even Bugs Bunny would go crazy for. Both orange bell pepper and carrot contain a surfeit of beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A in the body and functions to improve bone, eye, and immune health.

    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.
