There are some good recipes and ideas on the world according to eggface. I know I just did a lot of sliced meats...turkey, ham and roast beef. I kept it simple, which worked for me. This question gets asked all the time. There should be a recipe section on this site!

I'm trying to make meals for my family and give them a vsg twist for me, I made spaghetti for my family last night and put some of the meat sauce in a red pepper that I cut in half length wise so I got two halves and then I put some shredded parmesan and shredded mozzarella on top and baked for 30 min, good for two meals for me. I'm thinking these pepper shells will be good when I make sloppy joes and even tacos or fajitas to replace the carby buns and tortillas.
