Green peppers have lower carbohydrate content as compared to the red or yellow. Also, beef is a rich source of protein. However, it should be kept in mind that overindulging in protein sources per day can kick you out of ketosis. Furthermore, 25% of your daily food should be protein.

This recipe is dairy-free and eggless. These can be stored in the refrigerator for 4 days and up to a month in the freezer. They are ideal as a stand-alone dish, but you can also pair it with some lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, and cucumber salad.

You could also serve the beef mixture in the raw or blanched bell pepper. To blanch the peppers all you need to do is dip them in a pot of boiling water and remove them after around 3 minutes.

Another variation of this recipe are the Feta Cheese Keto Stuffed Peppers. In this recipe for two, you mix 11 ounces of feta cheese, with 9 to 10 sliced olives (remove the seeds), 2 eggs, and some hot sauce. You can also add any herb you enjoy, oregano, thyme, or mint.

Put the mixture in a pepper sliced longitudinally. Bake it for 25 minutes at about 400 Fahrenheit or 200 Celsius. These stuffed pepper recipes are excellent for lunch boxes.
