I have never been a fan of bell peppers.  I really struggle with eating raw bell peppers.  But this recipe has changed my appetite for them, in a big way.

The flavor and texture make an excellent morning (or evening) dish!  This is a power meal, full of good, nutritious ingredients that your body craves...and it is filling and satisfying.  Egg-cellent!


2 eggs (I use fresh organic eggs from our hens, delivered daily!)
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 medium tomato, chopped
2 tsp. coconut oil
Kosher salt & pepper to taste.


1.  Chop your bell pepper and tomato; heat your coconut oil in a medium pan (I love a good iron skillet) at medium heat.

2.  Cook your chopped bell pepper & tomato, sprinkled with salt & pepper, for about 3 minutes.  In the meantime, whisk your eggs in a bowl.

3.  Pour egg into the pan and mix with the bell pepper and tomato until eggs are cooked; about 2 - 3 minutes.  Enjoy!

Fast Chicken Fajitas

This recipe is SO GOOD, and so easy to put together I will make this for lunch or dinner in a pinch.  Chicken fajitas or Fajita chicken (per my recipe) is zero fats, but it does not zero-out on the mouthwatering taste.


1 LBS. chicken breast, skinless
1 bell pepper (any color - I prefer green)
1 medium onion (any type - I use sweet or yellow)
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 cloves garlic
4 Tbs. lime juice, (freshly squeezed)
1 Tbs. coconut oil


1.  Cut the chicken breast into thin strips, slice the bell pepper & onion, chop the garlic and mix well in a bowl with the spices and lime juice.

2.  Heat the coconut oil on medium in a large skillet (iron skillets are best!)  Pour the entire contents of the bowl into the skillet.

3.  Stir fry until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.  About 10 minutes.

REMEMBER:  If you can, always use fresh ingredients.

It will serve 4, so double if you want to share with the family!  You can serve the dish just like that, serve over romaine lettuce leaves or on top of organic corn tortillas...the taste remains unbelievably delicious!

Stay healthy!
