Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

This stuffed pepper soup is so yummy. It was very important to me in my weight loss journey that I find delicious, healthy and quick meals. This one is loaded with veggies. 

Bell peppers happen to be my favorite vegetable and sometimes I just want a good soup especially on a cold day. 

I cook this meal when I need more veggies at night. I try to eat 4 cups of veggies a day. I don’t always make it, but I try my best to hit that at least 80% of my week. 

Being healthy isn’t just about dropping everything you love and only eating veggies. It is about balance, eating what your body needs but also eating what you love to eat. 

Once I figured this out, I saw sustainable weight loss. It is never about elimination or restricting ourselves. That will always cause me to want to binge something I haven’t eaten in a while. 

Starting to add things like this stuffed pepper soup into your weekly meal plans will definitely help you start your weight loss journey. 

Take it one step at a time. And if you need any help I am right here for you.
