Chicken Stuffed Green peppers

I cut a pretty large pepper in 1/2 and weighed it. I had to trim some extra off to make sure each half was the right weight for 2 green servings. About 5 oz for each pepper half I browned ground turkey with a bit of shire sauce (about 13 oz raw since it shrinks) to get 10.5 oz cooked..... and added to the skillet: 6.4 oz of chopped tomatoes and 2 oz of shredded cheese ( I used 1 oz and 1 oz cheddar). 99% lean ground turkey requires 2 healthy fats but the cheese requires none so with 1/4 of the lean from cheese and 3/4 of the lean from turkey I estimated 1.5 healthy fats. 

I used 2 laughing cow wedges for 1 healthy fat and 1/2 a serving of black olives for the other half. This mixture is stuffed into the pepper halves (you only get to eat one, this makes two lean & greens). Put in a baking dish with some water in the bottom and cover with foil. Bake 25 min Then remove foil and bake another 10 min.

Turkey Shepherds Pie

5.25 oz of 98% lean ground turkey (cooked with some shire sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder)

1 oz of shredded cheese (.5 mozzarella, .5 cheddar)

3/4 cup steamed green beans (cut up tiny like kernels of corn - hehe)

3/4 cup mashed cauliflower ( I used nothing but cauliflower and LC cheese)

2 wedges laughing cow cheese for healthy fat.

browned the turkey with the spices - put in of mini 7" casserole dish, then sprinkled most of the shredded cheese on top of it (reserved a little to sprinkle on top of the assembled casserole). Then layered the steamed green beans ( they were only slightly steamed and still had some crunch). Then put the mashed cauliflower on top and sprinkled with the remaining shredded cheese. Baked at 350 degrees for 20 min then 5 min under the broiler to brown that cheese on top.

Makes 1 Lean and Green (although now that I think about it I think I needed another 1/2 healthy fat - maybe some olives next time)
