Our family recently started really getting serious about eating low carb.

My son was diagnosed with diabetes, now I am cooking a whole lot different. Feeling healthy and keeping his numbers well in control with this low carb diet. The main focus is to recreate healthy meals that doesn't impede flavor so you don't miss the old way. 

We want to live a healthy life style and keep everyone eating delicious healthy meals as always. It takes a lot of determination and motivation to change the way you eat after several years of eating a different way.
So I am starting off with this awesome stuffed pepper dish. It was truly delicious and we didn't miss any of the carbs that make it non diabetic friendly.
