For many years I really hated peppers. I'd only had them diced up in meatloaf, cold on salads, or pickled. None of those made my day. But the idea of stuffed peppers seemed a little boring. Until I found this recipe. I love finding new ways to use fresh ingredients.
Adding CBD to this meal boosts the health benefits and may help you to lose body fat.
Studies by doctors interviewed recently, CBD advocates and qualified doctors: Rachna Patel, MD and Michael Verbora, MBA, MD, CCFP. Both doctors prescribed CBD to treat other conditions such as chronic pain and anxiety, many patients experienced weight loss. They did also speak about studies that could explain the weight loss too, albeit as side effects of cannabidiol.
Feel free to leave the CBD out, and exchange it for 2 tablespoons of EVOO.

jalapeño so I omitted them.
