  • 1 cup Brown Rice

  • 1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Red Bell Pepper (chopped)

  • 2 tsps Paprika

  • Cook the rice according to the package directions.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the beef to the pan, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once it is cooked through and no longer pink, transfer the meat to a plate and drain any excess drippings from the pan.
  • Add the oil to the same pot and cook the peppers for about 8 minutes until just tender. Add the browned beef back to the pot and season with with Italian Seasoning, paprika, salt and red pepper flakes.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, water and half of the green onions. Bring to a gentle boil then let simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until the peppers are very tender. Season with additional salt if needed.
  • To serve, divide the beef mixture and rice between bowls. Stir together and then top with the remaining green onions. Enjoy!

  • More Flavor

    Use garlic-infused olive oil instead. Make it spicier with more red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper. Make it smokier with smoked paprika or chipotle chili powder.
  • No Red Bell Pepper

    Use any colour of bell pepper instead.
  • No Beef

    Use ground pork or sausage meat instead.
  • No Brown Rice

    Use white rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice instead.

138. Phases of Progress

Have you ever heard the saying, “If it was easy, everyone would do it”?

This is true for almost anything that’s worth doing – starting a new job, renovating your house, and, yes, even losing weight.

The truth is that it’s usually not the end goal that makes everything feel unattainable, but rather the phases of progress you have to go through to reach your goal.

I know we all want our progress to be fast, easy, and predictable.

But it’s just not.

Every single one of us works through four phases of progress, some of which are much more trying than others.

I’m breaking them all down in this episode to help normalize exactly what it looks like to make progress that lasts.

Are you ready to lose fat for good?​

Take this quick quiz to see where you’re going wrong with weight loss & exactly what you need to do differently to see the progress that lasts!
