One of my go-to nutritious comfort foods are these Healthy Family Style Stuffed Peppers and Tomatoes. I mean, there really isn’t anything quite like roasted… almost caramelized, peppers and tomatoes stuffed with a homemade Italian style meat sauce.

I’m on day 6 of the Whole30 and I have been surprised by how much I have gotten out of it so far. One of the main things that I have realized is that I don’t need to use natural sweeteners (like honey, or maple syrup), as much. For example, normally, I would have thought to add honey
