Who says eating healthy has to be boring, right? Right. Even Halloween can be kept somewhat clean, with a little bit of imagination. When you want your meals to be geared towards fat loss it means reducing the carbs and calories found in traditional, heavy dishes.

We’ve found that peppers make a phenomenal container for savoury ground meats instead of using tortillas or any kinds starchy pastas.



1 tablespoon olive oil

2 carrots, shredded

½ yellow onion, shredded

pinch of sea salt

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

0.5 kg of Ground Chicken

1 head cauliflower, shredded

⅓ cup golden raisins

1 cup chicken broth

pinch of black pepper

4 big bell peppers (green, red, yellow, orange)

2 tablespoons sliced almonds/ optional

2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees c.


Warm the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the carrots and onion. Cook for about 3 minutes, until slightly softened. Add the salt, cinnamon, and ground turkey. Cook until the meat is browned and the onions are soft, about 15 minutes. Add the cauliflower, raisins, broth, and black pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed.


Halve the bell peppers while you are waiting for the rest of the ingredients tp cook, rinse peppers, slice off the tops and hollow out the insides, be sure to remove any seeds and the white part inside. If desired, use a small paring knife to cut out a jack-o-lantern face.

Divide the chicken mixture among the pepper halves. Place the stuffed pepper halves in a 13 × 9-inch baking dish. 


Cover the pan with foil and bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove the foil, sprinkle each pepper with sliced almonds, and return to the oven for 5 minutes. Turn on the broiler and broil until the almonds are toasted about 1 minute. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired. Serve immediately and enjoy!
