Stuffed Poblanos


I've talked to a lot of people who have had trouble getting in their five servings of fruit and veggies or are getting sick of the veggies they're currently eating. I've actually seen people ask if a pickle counts as a veg. In theory, yes, but if you have to count a pickle to reach the WW healthy guideline of 5 a day, then you aren't getting enough.

Meatless entrees are an easy way to boost your fruit and vegetable consumption. Take these stuffed poblanos from Everyday Food magazine. This dish is slightly spicy, and is filled with a delicious black bean and cornmeal mixture with gooey pepper jack cheese. Want to make it less spicy? Use less jalepeno or try monterey jack instead. Want to make it leaner? Use less pepper jack or try 2% cheddar.

In this meal there's at least three servings of vegetables, including a side roasted cauliflower. And I don't know about you, but I'd rather down my vegetables cooked in a complete dish -- rather than plain and raw -- especially when that dish includes cheese.

What is your favorite way to get your fruit and veg requirement?
