Stuff Me Thursday

Happy Thursday everyone! I swear this week is going by at the speed of light. I mean no complaints but goodness I can’t believe it is already Thursday! This morning has started out nicely. Today is a no run day so I did 60 minutes of the elliptical (7 miles) and the followed that up with the following:

  • Prone Jackknife On the stability ball (12 reps)
  • Stability Ball Wood Chop (12 reps)
  • Single Leg Romanian Dead-Life (12 each side)
  • Standing Alternating Overhead Press (12 each arm)
  • Lunge with Front Foot Elevated (12 each leg)
  • Three-Point Dumbbell Row (12 each arm)
  • Stability Ball Leg Curl (12 reps)
  • Push-Ups (8 man push-ups)

Now I am sweaty and coffee bound!! Oh and a shower is definitely calling my name! ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately, my husband has a little tummy flu and was down for the count yesterday and last night. I am telling you…first he was craving ahi tuna with french fries and now he is sick to his stomach? Yup…Keith is definitely pregnant! So I was on my own for dinner. Usually that means one of two things: breakfast or vegetarian. The hubs is completely against both as proper dinner options. To which he gets a big eye roll from me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I made a new creation…I did a little of this and a little of that and I present you with my vegetarian stuffed peppers:


  • 2 large bell peppers, any color (I used orange)
  • 1/2 T. olive oil
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • 1/2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 cup peas, frozen
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup couscous, cooked
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.ย  Slice the tops off the peppers and then slice in half lengthwise; remove seeds, wash and pat dry. Place pepper halves in a small baking dish sprayed lightly with nonstick spray and roast for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile,ย saute mushrooms, garlic, peas, basil and oreganoย in olive oil until mushrooms are tender. Cook couscous. Once couscous is cooked, fluff with a fork and add walnuts and tomato sauce. Stir in mushroom mixture. Set aside and keep hot.

Remove peppers from oven and spoon mixture in to pepper halves and dinner is done! This was really good guys and the walnuts added such a good crunch and texture! I definitely recommend!


Alright guys I gotta scat. I have food to deliver and then a hair appoitment…ohlala! Nothing big…just a trim! PEACE!

Me trying to be cool and throw a peace sign…haha! I think “dork” is a much more accurate description!

What’s your favorite vegetarian meal?

Are you adventurous when it comes to your hair?

  1. Kelly! Peace sign is the other way around – what you did is rude!!

    Those peppers sound delish. x

  2. I’ve been on a real pepper kick as of late- I should probably take advantage of this and do some sort of stuffed pepper dinner…

    I’m sooooo not adventurous with my hair. If they trim it more than I like I start to get nervous… lol

  3. My favorite vegetarian meal is a giant salad. Not so creative in the whole vegetarian department, I guess.

    And I’m so not adventurous with my hair. I get highlights but other than that it’s trims for me.

  4. I am actually getting my hair done today! I am adventurous but I think it’s because I’ve been with my stylist for 22 years. I’ve let him cut off 14 inches before and usually let him do whatever he wants – color and all!

  5. It truly amazes me the amount you gotten done in the morning before I wake up!

    I love your energy ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Dang, you go all out when you cook for just yourself. I would have gone super simple with a salad. Honestly, that is my favorite meal. Huge salad with hummus and fresh veggies.

    I am pretty adventurous when it comes to my hair. I have it long now, but I like it chin length too. It’s hair and it will grow back. I am starting to get the itch to cut it off again!

    Have a great day and I hope Keith feels better!

    • Usually I don’t go all out when it is just me. But Keith HATES vegetarian meals AND he hates stuffed peppers…so I had a window of opportunity!

  7. I love stuffed peppers! I need to remember to make them again soon.

    I’m not adventurous at all with my hair. I need to be because I need a little change.

  8. I love stuffed peppers. I think my favorite vegetarian meal is probably stir-fry. It’s so easy to throw together.

  9. Love vegetarian dinners! I usually enjoy Mexican inspired veggie options…lots of black beans!

    I love changing up my hair! Visits to the salon are always an adventure…how ’bout that blond, Kelly? I’m sure you will look glam no matter what!

    Happy Thursday!

  10. Girl, you’re gangsta! Sounds like you had a good workout, even though you couldn’t run! My fave veg meal? Hmm…probably just a yummy plate of veggies: asparagus, zucchini, tomatoesโ€”with a healthy drizzle of EVOO, of course!

  11. Nice workout. Since I’m vegetarian, it’s hard for me to say I have a fave ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am definitely adventurous about hair. I grew up with it super long and once I finally got the nerve to cut it off, I felt sooooo free. I’ve even gone as short as a pixie cut.

  12. Those bell peppers look great! I think I’ve made a variation with quinoa before…

    I make a fantastic vegan stirfry – I just throw some tempeh and whatever veggies are around the house, with cilantro, basil and this really spicy chile garlic sauce. You don’t even miss the meat!

  13. I love stuffed peppers on the grill! MMM.

    Morningstar products rock my socks, does that count?

    As for my hair. Atlanta humidity is the best/worst hairstylist I’ve ever known.

  14. The stuffed peppers look great! My favorite vegetarian meal is probably pasta primavera with lots of herbs.
    Way to go on the strength training today!

  15. Looks like a great workout and I’m saving that stuffed pepper recipe.

  16. Those stuffed peppers look great!! I used to make stuffed peppers for me and Andrew all the time when we first moved in together, but haven’t in forever. Thanks for the reminder! Have a great day!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. i’ve had the same haircut for like 2 years..i can’t stop. i love it though! it used to be much shorter and more angled/stacked in the back, but i’ve grown it out a bit so i can put it up at the gym.

  18. You could have made breakfast peppers!! Stuffed eith eggs and soy breakfast sausage. Mmm ok now I’m hungry ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. I hope Keith is feeling better! Poor guy.
    Those stuffed peppers sound awesome! I usually stuff tomatoes, but its the same idea. So good!

    I am adventurous with my hair color. That’s about it. I can be brave and tell my hairdresser to cut it however he likes, but that’s more trust than anything else.

  20. I hope Keith gets to feeling better! The flu is the worst! I am VERY adventurous with my hair. I have done everything and anything to it and I usually sit down in the chair and say “do something killer” and we go from there. My only requirement is that the front needs to be long enough for me to get it out of my face, even if it’s just with clips because I hate having my hair in my face when I run!

  21. i love lentil veggie soups…AH-MAY-ZING. lentils have such a cool, peppery flavor!

    and i am almost too adventurous when it comes to my hair…i accidentally dyed it pink 2 weeks before meeting my husband’s family for the first time. OOPS ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Ooh Kelly those stuffed peppers look soooo good!! Love the addition of the walnuts!!

    I have so many fave vegetarian meals that I cant even choose!! I’m also very adventurous with my hair, I think it comes from working in a hair salon for years ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. I just wrote down your workout. I am loving everyone posting about what they do, because I need variety, and sometimes I’m too lazy to make something up myself. I did the one Hilary posted on Monday and it was pretty killer. I’ll try yours tomorrow!

    I am not at all adventurous with my hair, but I’ve been thinking of dying it lately. I’ve never done tat before, and I am feeling like I need a change of pace…something subtle maybe, but then I think why not go all out if I’m gonna do it? Post photos!

  24. Those peppers look fabulous! David doesn’t like me to make vegetarian meals either. What is it with boys?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. My favorite vegetarian meal involves eggs or cheese. Mainly cheese ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha.

    FYI, I think those peppers need some…

    Happy Thursday Kelly!

  26. I used to be so daring when it came to my hair! I cut it in all kinds of styles and dyed it all different colors. Since college is over I’ve stuck with one style and let it be its natural color. Got to be proffessional :).

  27. Yes to adventures in hair. One place this creature if habit likes to shake things up.

    Oh and lastnught as I was plating dinner with pasta and veggies, jensen asked what the meat part of dinner was. It’s a given for him, too. Meatless is not on hi radar :). Luckily I know this and quickly showed him the shrimp that was just finishing up

  28. here i am wishing it was friday! those peppers look yummy ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. yummmmm. not so adventuresome with the hair– it was only two years ago when i got my first blow out!!

    I CANT BELIEVE WE GET TO MEET!!!!!!! So pumped.

  30. What’s a Three-Point Dumbbell Row?

  31. I’m not really adventurous with the cut, but more the color. My hair has been sooo many different colors.

  32. The stuffed peppers look delicious! haha And cute pic! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. I haven’t really thought about vegetarian meals…

    your peppers sound delicious.

    I am not at all adventurous with my hair!

  34. Favorite veggie meal would be Emily’s burgers I just made tonight. OMG!!!! Have you had them yet???? I am pretty adventerous with my hair color because with all my curls, my cut is generally the same (although it can be long or short).

    And, your peace sign photo made my day. Okay, the burger REALLY made my day, but this picture helped ๐Ÿ˜‰
