    katie.loftus's Note:

    This recipe for these Southwestern-flavored, lentil-stuffed peppers is featured in my new book, Schedule Me Skinny: Plan to Lose Weight and Keep it Off in Just 30 Minutes a Week -- and is one of my favorites because it helps me stick to #MeatlessMonday, one of my favorite healthy initiatives. Lentils, one of SELF's favorite superfoods, adds a hefty dose of fiber and protein to this meal, while the bell peppers gives a huge shot of vitamin C to your system -- three times that of an orange, in fact!
