I promised Italian food that was on the lighter side, and these Organic Italian Sausage Stuffed Peppers really are a healthy lunch option. By eliminating the bread, you save on carbs and calories. The sweet Italian sausage is made with organic chicken and turkey, which lightens this dish up even more, but it certainly isn’t light in flavor.
This meal is a bit costlier than my average budget friendly organic meal because the main component is organic meat. This is a high-cost item, but it’s not an area where you want to skimp. Why? 80-90% of animal feed is GMO, and we’ve all heard “you are what you eat”. This is the case with animals that eat conventional feed — they are contaminated with GMOs. By choosing organic meats and other animal products, you can be sure they are GMO-free. The total price is $11.56, or $2.89 per serving. This is how that total adds up:
- $7.99 Applegate Organic Sweet Italian Sausage from Jimbo’s.
- $0.50 Organic Yellow Onion from Sprouts.
- $3.04 Organic Green Bell Peppers for the best price at Jimbo’s.
- $0.03 Organic Olive Oil bought at Sprouts.
