When most people think of eating healthfully, one of the first options to come to mind is a salad. But what about something as hearty and filling as chili? Can that be a healthy option? You bet! It's conveniently prepared in a single pot and versatile enough to please nearly any palette, from meat eater to vegetarian.
In my version of chili, I show you how to quickly throw together a hearty meal using extra-lean ground turkey, canned organic ingredients, and various spices. Prepare your chili on a Sunday for the entire family to enjoy, or save it to savor throughout the week!
