Tasty Thursday: Squash Stuffed with Organic Ground Beef

Hello everyone! Here's what I did as a workout today:

45 minutes on the elliptical
 
Weight training:
 
Cable cross-overs 3x15
Squat dumbbell curl 3x15
Reverse curls 3x15
Squat tricep extension 3x15
 
 
So what's a better way to celebrate the Fall season than by preparing a scrumptious fall-inspired meal? As you all know by now, I love pumpkins because they're absolutely delish, but they are also super healthy, that's why I'm going to give you a delicious, mouth-watering recipe that you won't be able to resist!
 
Squash Stuffed with Organic Ground Beef
 
Ingredients:
2 medium acorn squash
1 pound organic ground beef
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 tbs parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp cinnamon
 
Directions:
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 13x10 inch baking pan with foil and lightly grease with olive oil.
 
2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and take out the seeds. Spray the cut sides with olive oil and place, cut side down, on the foil. Add about 1/2 inch of water to the baking pan then cover with foil. Bake for about 45-55 minutes or until tender.
 
3. In a large skillet, saute the organic ground beef with the green bell pepper and onion. Stir until the beef is no longer pink and the veggies are tender. Add sea salt, tomatoes, parsley and cinnamon. Continue cooking until it's ready.
 
4. Place the meat mixture into the squash and arrange the stuffed squash on the baking pan. Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
