Stuffed Peppers

Recipe from Lavinia Stuffed Peppers Ingredients 6 Bell peppers (yellow, orange or red are best) 3 cups cooked brown rice 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped 1 lb ground turkey 1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional) 1 cup chicken stock 1 cup tomato sauce (or homemade + extra for toping) ½ medium onion, finely chopped ¼ tsp smoked paprika ½ teaspoon salt 1 tsp pepper 1 tbsp cooking oil 1 cup water 1 cup mozzarella, shredded (optional) MAKE IT HAPPEN Preheat the oven to 375°F. Remove top of peppers,seeds and membranes; rinse peppers. Pour 1 cup of water into a glass baking dish, and arrange the six bell peppers so that they are standing in the water. Set the baking dish aside while you prepare the filling. In a skillet, cook turkey and onion (mushrooms if using) over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until turkey is brown; drain. Stir in the salt ,pepper , paprika, and garlic. Next add the chicken stock and the tomato sauce and combine well. Turn down the heat and add the cooked brown rice to the pan.  Stir everything together and allow to simmer for about 10 minutes. Fill each pepper ¾ full using the rice and turkey mixture. Top them off with leftover tomato sauce if available (optional). Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and place into the oven to bake for 45- 60 minutes. Once the peppers have finished cooking, uncover them and sprinkle mozzarella over each (if using). Broil for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese....
The Food Truth…

The Food Truth…

..and it’s seriously empowering. Wanna take your power back?  Start with this list and feel seriously empowered to crush all your goals. 1. Food is (almost) everything. We’d be lying to you if we said you could Rev like a maniac and eat all the cheesy pulled chicken tacos all the time and feel like a million bucks.  The truth is, no workout on the planet will change the way you look and feel the way that food can.  Yes genetics play a role (don’t we all have that uncle who puts bacon on everything, smokes a pack a day, and lives to 102?) but by and large, healthy food has serious power. 2. We don’t know sh*t. We’re not sure when the world decided that personal trainers and bootcamp leaders were nutrition experts, but unless they’ve studied the field, they’re not.  We don’t tell you what to eat because we’re not food pros.  During our challenges, we always share what works for us.  Sometimes Revvers ask, why doesn’t Revkor hire a nutrition expert to plan our 8 week meals?  Two reasons: 1) we believe that if we learn and think for ourselves, we succeed  by being empowered.  2) because there is no one-size fits all way of eating.  Guys who are 200+ pounds need way more food and energy than someone half the size. We have women who are breastfeeding, menopausal, tall, small, and everything in between.  People have allergies, intolerances, likes and dislikes. We should never be letting fitness people tell us what to eat - whether you’re a Revver or not, we encourage you to really think about this piece. 3....
