These stuffed bell peppers are the perfect veggie and protein-packed breakfast to get your day started on the right foot. 

 4 bell peppers, large, flat-bottoms preferred
 8 eggs, beaten
 1 tsp coconut oil
 ½ red onion, small
 1 ½ cups mushrooms, finely chopped
 2 cups spinach
 1 tbsp oregano (fresh or dried)
 sea salt + ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wash bell peppers and slice off tops, setting tops aside. Place bell peppers on a baking sheet.

Dice red onion and extra bell pepper bits from around the stem.  

In a saute pan, heat coconut oil until liquefied. Add red onion and diced bell pepper and saute for about 2 minutes.  Add chopped mushroom and spinach and saute for another 2 minutes until cooked down.  Add oregano and salt and pepper to vegetables.

Using a slotted spoon to allow extra cooking liquid to drain, evenly distribute cooked vegetables among the bell peppers.

Slowly pour beaten eggs over each bell pepper, allowing time for eggs to seep through vegetables to avoid spilling over.

Place stuffed bell peppers in oven and cook for 40 minutes.
