The end of Get Fit Friday

I've enjoyed sharing my weight loss story and I'm hoping I helped to get a few people on the right track. I was once where you were, I didn't know where to start or what to do. For me, learning to lose weight was trial and error. I had to learn what worked and what didn't. I'm ending with one more set of healthy meals. If you ever need healthy meal ideas for the future, be sure to follow my Get Healthy board on pinterest where I pin healthy foods I enjoyed!

Boca Crumbles Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Peppers

3 bell peppers (red or green)
1 small onion, chopped
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/8 tablespoon olive oil
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 1/2 cups frozen soy crumbles (I use Boca Brand)
1 cup cooked brown rice (I use Uncle Bens ready made)
3 -4 tablespoons ketchup
1 -2 tablespoon mustard

Instructions: Sauté onions and garlic in oil until soft. Meanwhile, cut peppers lengthwise and clean out seeds & membrane. Add undrained tomatoes, boca crumbles and rice to softened onion mixture. Simmer until well combined. Add ketchup and mustard **NOTE** Add more or less depending on how thick/thin sauce is. It should be just thick enough to remain in peppers. Play with it and add it to taste! Put pepper shells in a 13x9 and spoon mixture into peppers and cook covered with foil for 1 to 1 1/2 hours at 350°F or until peppers are soft.

Grilled Avocado with fresh Salsa

2 avocados
1 large tomato, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon finely chopped scallion
2 teaspoons finely chopped seeded jalapeno
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil plus additional for grilling
1/8 teaspoon salt plus additional to taste

Halve the avocados length-wise; pit and peel. Slice a thin layer from the rounded bottom of each half so that it sits flat. In a small bowl, combine the tomato, cilantro, scallion, jalapeno, lime juice, 1 teaspoon oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Add salt to taste if necessary. Heat the grill to high. Brush avocado halves lightly with oil; grill 1 minute a side, until lightly charred. Place avocado halves on a platter; spoon tomato salsa into wells. Serve immediately.
