Mediterranean Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

Mediterranean Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

This post was created in partnership with ALDI. All opinions are our own. “Are you considering becoming a creative person? Too late, you already are one. If you’re alive, you’re a creative person.” -Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic When I was in kindergarten, I entered a coloring contest. It was about eating healthy foods. Since it was the 1980s, the approach at the time was very food pyramid-centric. I drew a bunch of different “healthy” foods that I knew of in different categories: vegetables, dairy, meats, and so forth. My drawing ended up winning the kindergarten division, and it was displayed for all the school to see. The thing was, I was pretty uninspired with the whole thing. I drew it because it was an assignment. I did not feel creative about it in the least. The food pyramid seemed like a limiting set of rules set forth by the school and government. Cooking and eating healthy foods in my mind was B-O-R-I-N-G. To this day, I have the same feeling about programs that try to tell me how to eat healthy. Lists and check boxes don’t work for me. What does work? Creative freedom. I love eating beautiful, colorful, delicious food. […]
