Stuffed peppers with tomato sauce

From the cookbook Strak Plan 2

Did you know that a red bell pepper contains more vitamin C than a green bell pepper? Vitamin C (which is also known as ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant, which protects the body from damage. In addition, vitamin C can help the body to absorb iron, form connective tissues, and maintain a good immune and defence system. Red bell peppers are also sweeter in flavour than green ones, which can sometimes taste a little bitter. This is because they are harvested at a later date. As a result of their red colour, red peppers contain more beta-carotene. This is also known as pro-vitamin A. The body is able to convert provitamin A into vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to maintain a good defence system and contributes to healthy bones, teeth and skin, as well as supporting growth.

‘Online is the new black’ is what we mean by the Strak Plan. One branch of the Strak Plan is the successful nutritional and dietary consultations that are mainly held online!

Strak Plan started 3 years ago as a dietician’s practice where you could go and work in a sustainable way towards a body that you accept.

We make people aware that a healthy lifestyle is easy to follow and that that number on the scale doesn’t mean anything. We look for the underlying problem because the food is just the symptom of it.

When you sign up with Strak Plan, you will receive guidance about psychological inputs, backed up with factual knowledge about nutrition. Add in a very personal approach and you know why you should choose Strak Plan if you want to work on having a life that doesn’t involve dieting!
