Eating the Alphabet - Letter "B"
Today we are eating Letter "B". And it is um, um good!
Just look at these amazingly vibrant bell peppers:
I spy a beautiful monkey-girl, do you?
Bell peppers are a staple in our home. Any color will do, but I am partial to the orange ones.
They take the place of bread and corn chips for me. No really, they do.
I am trying to avoid too many grains (like wheat) and too much sugar (corn tends to be higher in natural sugar). So, I take strips of bell peppers and dip them into my homemade salsa. They have all the crunch of a chip, but less sugar and no oil.
My "go to" lunch during the week is half of a bell pepper loaded up with hummus. I call it a pepper sandwich. It's fast, satisfying, and actually quite refreshing.
Music Man likes bell pepper sandwiches too. And our youngest monkey asks for "peppews and tummus" quite often.
