Surprisingly I am enjoying #veganday. Could be because I am allowed carbs or just because I get to be extra creative. It’s tempting just to have a salad as it is the easiest but even on #veganday everything needs to balance and a whole day with no to little proteins and fat is not ideal.

This recipe is so simple, I did it before going to work. The quinoa cooked while I got ready, the onions I fried when it was done and the stuffing I did at work so that the pepper remained fresh and crisp.
