Sore throat, stupid runny nose that just won’t quit, why haven’t they come up with a pill or something to cure colds yet?! I have no idea where the cold came from and I don’t want to think about it too much because it grosses me out. I’m a slight germaphobe, maybe more than slight if you asked my husband.
I didn’t let the cold stop me from running though! There’s no way that sucker was going to make me miss a run. The only times I’ve missed my morning run were because of stomach issues and the time I got blood clots in my head and ended up in the hospital for nearly two weeks…yeah that was a fun one.
My theory is, running with a cold (not a fever) can actually help get rid of it faster. You’re sweating out all those toxins, loosening up the flem and if you’re like me spitting about 50 times during the run. Gross, I know, but if you run you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Up until a couple weeks ago it had been ages since I made or ate stuffed peppers. It used to be one of my favorite dinners when I was growing up, although my mom never made this version. Of course back then I considered broccoli to be one of the most vile vegetables to grow out of the ground. Since then we’ve come to terms with each other and I actually really like it!
The filling for these stuffed peppers is gluten-free, loaded with chicken and broccoli and just enough wild rice to satisfy your carb craving without over doing it. The filling is also nice and creamy with the addition of plain Greek yogurt.
Of course a stuffed pepper isn’t a stuffed pepper unless there’s cheese involved. You’ll find it in the filling and of course melted on top, hence the recipe name, “Cheesy” Broccoli, Chicken and Rice Stuffed Peppers. Change up your traditional stuffed pepper night and give these a try!
