I just finished a snack of baby carrots prior to signing in here.
The heart palpitations were a bit scary, especially since it took a long time to discover their actual cause. I had been to a heart specialist, among others, before we finally figured it out. If my stepmom hadn't been using red peppers to make her Stuffed Peppers, I'd have never known about Dad's same allergy.
p.s.- Stepmom makes her Stuffed Red Peppers using ground turkey, although I am sure there are veggie substitutes. I prefer brown rice, tomato sauce more than spicy, and mushrooms make a nice addition. The red peppers give it a sweeter taste than the green ones, IMO, making it a win-win dish.
