Serves 1 (serving size: 2 stuffed bell pepper halves)

Curcumin, the bright yellow polyphenol compound found in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Preliminary research suggests curcumin may promote weight loss, lower risk of heart disease, and improve blood sugar control. Use a red bell pepper for 8 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more vitamin C than green.
Cut pepper in half lengthwise; discard seeds and membranes, leaving stem intact. Place pepper halves, cut sides up, in a small baking dish. Coat with cooking spray, and cover with foil. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.
Chop chicken, and place in a bowl. Stir in farro and olive oil. Divide mixture evenly into both bell pepper halves. Bake at 350°F, uncovered, for 6 to 7 minutes, until chicken mixture is heated through.
Sprinkle feta cheese, parsley, and lemon juice evenly over top.
