Get Red Carpet Ready

Academy Awards or no Academy Awards, it's nice to want to get red carpet ready- no that does not equate to or isn't limited to looking lean and sculpted.  It's a great goal to work towards to feel your best, increase love and appreciation for you, and flaunt that wherever you are and go.

But since the Oscars will be taking place in a couple of hours, it is quite fitting to chefsperiment this hors-d'oeuvre, to entertain your guests AND your health!

"Kiwicado Stuffed Sweet Peppers"

"Kiwicado" Stuffed Sweet Peppers

You'll need:

- 4 sweet peppers, washed & tops chopped

- 1 avocado, peeled and chopped

- 1 kiwi, peeled and chopped

- 1/4 red onion, finely chopped

- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

- 1 apple sliced (pacific rose is delish!), you'll only need 12 slices, but you can use the rest to dip with the leftover guac

- lime, sea salt, black pepper, basil, freshly chopped green chili to taste

Servings: 4 

Prep Time: 20 minutes (this one's a bit long because of the chopping and presentation)

1. Wash the sweet peppers, chop the tops, and make a slice on one side to make stuffing easier and to prevent the "kiwicado" guac from oozing out.

2. Mash the avocado with a fork/masher, squeeze your lime, sprinkle the sea salt to prevent browning

3. Add the chopped onion, green chili, kiwi and combine.  Sprinkle the remaining seasonings.

4. Stuff the peppers with the "kiwicado." Place one sliced apple to fill in the cut you made on the sweet pepper, and the other two within the pepper, facing the other way (for a fancy look!)

Et Voila!  One of your appetizers taken care of at your party.  There's still time!  And remember, the nutrients from your clean, balanced diet will give you a sustainable red carpet look, with exercise to maintain your fitness- not a processed-food filled diet with a ton of exercise!
