These lunchbox-friendly crunchy bell pepper sandwiches are a great option for busy days. They are stuffed with cream cheese, everything bagel seasoning, smoked salmon and avocado. So easy, only five ingredients, that's it!

DIY Everything Bagel Seasoning

Don't have ready-made everything bagel seasoning? You can easily make your own by mixing the following ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp onion flakes
  • 1 tsp garlic flakes
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

How To Eat Bell Pepper Sandwiches

Bell peppers are a popular TikTok recipe, and if you ever tried them, you know they are not the easiest thing to eat "sandwiched". It's much better (and less messy) if you eat the stuffed pepper halves separately. You can press the halves together in case you want to pack them with you for lunch but separate them before eating.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This is such a clever idea!  Delicious and packs so easily for lunch. Perfect for summer picnics too.   I added a little bit of ground mustard.
