Keto Approved Cream Cheese Stuffed Peppers

As you might already know I have been eating Keto approved since January. Every so often my husband and I cheat a little – a pizza one night, maybe some ice cream another, but we have found and created some AMAZING dinner recipes that have made Keto living super easy for us.

A lot of friends and readers have been asking me about Keto, so I decided to share some of my favorite recipes here, starting with Chicken & Cream Cheese Stuffed Peppers. This is a meal even my kids devour – and ask for! Yum!
