When I first spotted this recipe, I immediately thought it was great dinner for those days you're facing time constraints - you know; busy moms, late nights at the office, or a kid's sporting event night. At those moments, I never want to eat something simply because I am hungry, nor have to fight the urge to do so when it is getting late. So when I know I will be facing a time crunch for dinner, I do my best to search for meals that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, but still be clean and healthy to fit in with my lifestyle.
I love stuffed peppers, but I usually bake them after making all the filling which can take some time. So this recipe recipe makes for the perfect alternative!

The goodness of clean eating doesn't have to stop at you!!! Clean eating is also good for the community and the planet! Buying local puts money back into the community, while clean and organic means no pesticides and chemicals are harming the environment, leading to cleaner waterways and drinking supply. Local means fresher, more flavorful and more nutritious for you!
Cioppino is typically a seafood stew, but I decided to do it a little differently. I decided to put it over pasta and change it up a little. To do it, I purchased one pound of de-shelled clams, one pound of de-shelled mussels (which I forgot to add!), one pound of shrimp and one pound of tilapia. With that, I went from step 6, straight to step 8, and added all the fish together. I boiled my whole wheat pasta and tossed with basil, red pepper flakes and used Parmesan cheese to garnish after mixing it with the fish. Not only was it a family hit, but it is also 21 day fix approved!
This recipe came right from Autumn Calabrese's Fixate Cookbook. For this dinner I used these containers: 1 green (onion, fennel, veg broth and basil), 1 purple (crushed tomatoes), 1 1/2 red (all seafood and fish), 2 yellow (pasta) and 1/8 blue (cheese)
Although I always prefer to use fresh fish whenever possible, and particularly in this recipe, there are other options available. Canned fish is an easy and convenient way to get a dose of protein and omega 3's without all the prep work that may be involved when using fresh fish. If choosing tuna, opt for light tuna over white or albacore. Light tuna contains less mercury, fewer calories, less sodium and more vitamin B and iron. However, the better choice is canned salmon. Canned salmon has more omega 3's and is likely to contain fewer toxins like mercury because of their feeding patterns.
Hi! My name is Jessica Troncillito. I am a wife and the mother of one son who has made some pretty big changes in her life. You see, coming from a traditional Sicilian family who spent hours together around the table during our huge Sunday dinners, I've always been into food. Cooking, baking and of course, "eating" were passions that have basically surrounded me since birth.
The joy my grandparents found in their garden and canning their harvest has left an indelible mark upon me, and I still have fond memories of my grandmother baking cookies, apple pies and cheese cakes for nearly every occasion.
Fortunately, that same love and joy of cooking has been passed from my grandparents to my mother, and ultimately, onto myself.
I love to cook and absolutely feel at peace in the kitchen. But as I began to grow older, health and nutrition played a larger roll in my daily meal preparation and my approach to the cooking rituals I'd been exposed to since childhood changed dramatically. I began a regimen of cooking leaner and cleaner - not only for myself, but for my family as well - and the results have been undeniable.
Here, on "Lean & Clean Eating with Jess", I'd love to not only share with you the person I've become today, but also, the recipes and lifestyle tips that got me to where I am and can help bring about a healthier you!
