Turkey Chili - Clean Eating and Low Carb


   Hubby and I started a journey of loosing weight a few months ago. I do plan on sharing our journey soon and I can't wait to help and motivate people on taking charge of their health.  It doesn't matter how or when, what matters is deciding to change and starting.

    We did a round of insanity and what I love about the workout is the elite nutrition plan that came with it. I don't know about you but scouring the web for low calorie meals is time consuming. One of the meals in that cookbook is Turkey Chili. You can use homemade or store bought or Veggie Chili. If you know me, I will make it homemade ( granting it's easy--and it is!) to save money. I was on a mission to loose weight and be healthy BUT doing it on a budget.  Here's a very easy , clean eating recipe for you. If you want to know the exact calorie count, you can do so at nutritiondata.self.com. If you are planning to cook this recipe in line with Insanity work out, follow the measurement ( serving) indicated on the Elite Nutrition Book

Ingredients:

1 lb, lean ground turkey
2 cans (14.5oz) Kidney Beans, or use Homemade Beans
2 tbsp, diced garlic
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 medium size, chopped red onion
1 large, chopped green bell pepper
4 chopped, roma tomatoes ( 3 cups)
4 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp. chili powder
2 cups , homemade vegetable stock
1 (6oz) tomato paste
1 (15oz) no sugar added tomato sauce

Directions:


Using a large pot,  heat olive oil and saute the red onions, bell pepper and garlic . Cook until onions are translucent.


Stir in ground turkey. When meat is no longer pink, stir in cumin and chili powder. Mix.


Add the broth, tomatoes, tomato paste and kidney beans.


Turn heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes , add the tomato sauce. Simmer for additional 10 minutes.


A very simple , tasty and healthy meal.


I usually make a big batch of this and separate them into small containers. It keeps really well  in the fridge too. When you have a craving for a wholesome  clean eating dish , it is conveniently waiting for you in your fridge.


If you don't mind a little heat, drizzle some tapatio hot sauce on it!
