SLOPPY JOE STUFFED PEPPERS

INGREDIENTS: 1 lb. ground beef 1 onion, finely diced 3 minced garlic cloves 1 c. tomato sauce 1/3 c. ketchup 2 tbsp. tomato paste DIRECTIONS: 1.

1 tbsp. brown sugar 2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar 1 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. black pepper 1 tbsp. olive oil

3 bell peppers, sliced in half with insides removed 1/2 c. shredded Mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese 1/4 c. beef broth or water 2 sliced green onions (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 ° .

2. Heat a skillet to medium high heat and add oil. Add ground beef along with half of your salt and pepper, and cook until meat is broken up and browned slightly. Add in the onion and garlic and continue to sauté for another few minutes until onions just become soft. 3. After your meat and onions have browned, reduce heat to medium and add in tomato sauce, ketchup, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and the rest of the salt and pepper. Stir to combine well and then cook for 5 minutes until flavors have combined. 4. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the sloppy joe mixture inside of each pepper until they are full. 5. Top each stuffed pepper with cheese and then pour beef broth into the bottom of the pan so that the peppers are sitting in the liquid (this will help steam the peppers). Cover and bake for 25 minutes, then remove cover and broil for 2 minutes until cheese is browned slightly to finish the cooking process. Sprinkle with green onions (optional) and serve immediately.

This means cross training, getting enough rest and, perhaps most importantly, fueling their bodies with healthy, clean foods. Fish and veggies top the list of what to eat. As for what to avoid – processed foods and foods high in sugar are big no-nos. However, some pro athletes believe how often they eat is even more impactful on their performance than what they eat. Skipping a meal on the go because there isn’t a healthy option available isn’t a good choice. It’s better to eat a small amount of something not so healthy than nothing at all. So, what can we learn from these top-notch competitors? Eat less food, but more often. Stick to fruits, veggies and lean proteins. And just say no to sugar… most of the time. Even pro-athletes indulge every once in a while. So should you!
