A favorite recipe for using up extra shredded pork is pulled pork stuffed peppers without rice. And, they bake up quickly for a fast keto friendly meal any time.
I’ve also got a pulled pork appetizer recipe for a keto friendly tomato melt. Well, today I’m going to share another fantastic way to use up the leftovers from my low carb pulled pork recipe.
I’ve shared a recipe for keto stuffed bell peppers before. But today I’m sharing another one for pulled pork stuffed peppers without rice that I know you’re going to love.
You’ll get a healthy dose of keto vegetables with this one as I’ve added in some spinach along with the bell peppers. One stuffed pepper is plenty for a quick lunch or appetizer.
My family has been trying to stay dairy-free so I like to top these off with some Daiya mozzarella shreds. They are a bit more high carb so I usually eat mine without any.
I’m hoping to have more time to develop a low carb dairy-free cheese recipe soon. I just need more time to experiment in the kitchen which I plan to do this year after leaving my engineering job.
Yes! I’ve been talking about it for a while and it’s finally happening. I’ve already put in my two week notice at work to stay home and blog full-time. It’s been in my plan for so long.
So, I’m hoping to work on more low carb recipes like these pulled pork stuffed peppers without rice. And, I’d like to have the time to publish a cookbook. It’s just been too hard to do that working a full-time job outside of blogging.
My friend Erin just wrote an article on traps bloggers need to avoid when moving from a regular job to full-time blogging. I’m going to be taking her advice to make sure I take care of myself before the blog.
My life has been very stressful and I’ve rarely had time for myself between my office job and the blog. My first priority is to take a little breather and relax before jumping into a full-time blogging career.
I’ve also rushed my content to meet my schedule and often ended up writing my blog posts at the last minute. Next month, I’ll be focused on building up content so it’s written about a month in advance.
That way, if I can’t work or want to have some free time, the blog work won’t hold me back. I’d also like to enjoy the summer with my youngest daughter while she’s out of school.
I’m also hoping to have the time to work on moving the rest of my family to a lower carb eating plan. I know which recipes they like so I need to spend time developing more kid friendly recipes.
My youngest daughter would never eat these pulled pork stuffed peppers without rice. She’s super picky so I end up feeding her things like corn chips and gluten-free cookies.
However, that’s hopefully going to change as I’ll have more time to prepare homemade foods that are low carb and kid friendly. She loves bacon and cheese so I can always keep my fridge stocked with those keto foods.
My older two kids are more open to eating low carb. It’s my husband and youngest daughter that need more convincing. I’m trying to get my husband to start doing a little work on the blog to get him more interested.
I just need to keep preparing the healthier low carb foods that they like. And, I know I’m going to have a lot more time to do that when I’m home during the weekdays.
Wouldn’t it be great if there were more low carb convenience foods available in the local stores? I am seeing more products being introduced locally so the trend should continue if the demand is there.
However, I still feel that making home cooked meals are best if you have the time. And, if you cook a big batch of pulled pork over the weekend, these pulled pork stuffed peppers without rice should be quick to prepare during the week.
I don’t like to cook every day mainly because the kitchen becomes a mess and I hate all the cleanup work. If I had someone else to do the cleaning, I’d definitely cook more often.
What makes things easier for me is to do bulk cooking where I make 2-3 recipes in a day. That way, I can be set for a few days before I have to cook again.
But, what I really need to do is start planning out some freezer meals that I can have ready to go when things get hectic. Of course, I’ll need to get all my husband’s deer meat out of the freezer first!
