Typically, when I shop for produce at the grocery store, I don’t put much thought into how the items are farmed. However, now that I’ve learned so much about Fair Trade Certification, I “get it” and I intend to do some research on the produce that’s available in my area. I want to find affordable produce for Brian and I to eat, but if I can avoid giving my support and business to companies with growers who treat their workers unethically, I’m definitely going to do so, even if I have to pay a little bit more to do it.
The growers of Divemex specialize in peppers grown in state of the art greenhouse facilities that allow for the production of the highest quality peppers in some of the safest facilities anywhere.  But most importantly, as a Fair Trade Certified company, they have an unwavering commitment to social responsibility that puts workers first.
Now that’s a bell pepper that I can stand behind!

OK, so take a look at the goodness I’ve created for you…  These little sliders are perfect low carb appetizers for game day snacking, or even a light meal. They’re perfect for anyone who’s trying to eat a little healthier.

Granted, bell peppers are higher in natural sugars (carbs) than some other veggies, but let me tell ya, they are much lower in carbs that a traditional flour or corn tortilla is.  Less carbs = a healthier me.

Have I mentioned how much I adore my cast iron skillet?  It caramelizes veggies like a dream and puts a perfect sear onto my steaks! This is the one I suggest using. It’s 12 inches wide, so it’s big enough to fit chicken pieces in it, but it’s not so heavy that you feel like your wrist will snap every time you try to remove it from the oven. It’s my favorite pan for making cornbread, too.

    This is exactly the kind of dish I would make just for myself when no one else is home for dinner, which seems to be happening more and more. Delish.

      Thanks, girlyfriend! I “man handled” about a half dozen of them before the plate became top heavy and slipped off of the TV table next to my desk. Danged gravity!

    That steak looks very tender and juicy. I can imagine the flavors! I’ve been more conscious about our food origins as well. We participate in a local organic farm share and it has made a difference in our health.

      I’m SO envious of your organic farm share, Dionne! There’s only one organic farm near us… 30 miles away… and the waiting list for CSA shares has over 100 people on it!
