Cook over medium heat with garlic and spices, using spray oil or vegetarian broth until tender. Add corn, lima beans, rice, and black beans. After a few minutes, transfer ingredients into the pepper. Grate 2 tablespoons of cheese over top and bake for a few minutes until melted. Take lettuce leaves and make into a salad bowl by filling them with cooked ingredients.

Going vegetarian, even if for one meal will do your body a world of good. This pepper stuffed with awesomeness is from the Cat Smiley Boot Camp food plan.  

Whole-food vegan diets are generally higher in certain nutrients. However, make sure you get all the nutrients your body needs. Vegan diets have a natural tendency to reduce your calorie intake. This makes them effective at promoting weight loss without the need to actively focus on cutting calories. They are also particularly effective at reducing blood sugar levels and may help prevent further medical issues from developing. – Healthline.com
