CHICKEN STUFFED BELL PEPPERS

Today was a good day.  I'll admit planning meals for the whole30 is a bit difficult to get used to, but I'm new at it!  I've been making an extra large dinner so that I have leftovers for lunch the next day and finding that works really well.  It seems like it really comes down to preparation.  Especially breakfast because I like to sleep in, and sometimes that means a less than optimal meal.  So tonight I decided I would make sure that couldn't happen by preparing all the stuff I wanted to have ready for breakfast.  I cooked some chicken and chopped up some veggies, and that way in the morning I can just chuck them in the pan with a couple of eggs and they'll be ready in no time!

Today's recipe is also a great one for any paleo and whole30 dieters.
