Rice gets a bad rap but, if you choose the right type, it can be a healthy, filling carbohydrate to occasionally include in meals. That’s why I use brown rice in this stuffed peppers recipe.

This easy stuffed peppers recipe combines it with meat (use ground bison or grass-fed beef) and seasonings for a perfectly portioned meal that tastes great. There’s no need for a side dish, since vegetables make up the base of the meal, plus hands-on cooking time is minimal.
