Side Notes

You can do this bell pepper bowls recipe with grass-fed ground beef, lamb or bison if you want a fattier meat.  Chicken is also a good option but it is similar in flavor and macronutrient content as turkey.  I personally do not eat pig meat as I discuss in this article but do enjoy grass-fed beef bacon which is a great option if you don’t want to use the turkey bacon.

We get our grass-fed beef bacon and turkey bacon from either Whole Foods or we order online.  I love the products you can order through US Wellness Meats because they are high quality and they have almost every kind of meat product you could ask for.

Dr Jockers Comments

These bell pepper bowls are a great fat burning main course that is creative, colorful and full of flavor!  I love bell peppers and packing them full of healthy, micronutrient rich ingredients makes them all the better.

Red bell peppers are one of the richest food sources of vitamin C and they have a great flavor and texture.  Turkey   We add in the olive oil at the end to increase the amount of polyphenols and healthy fats to make this a nutrient dense keto recipe.
