Turkey Chili

Ok! It is officially the OFF SEASON for most competitors! You are now a “normal” person just in time for the HOLIDAY SEASON… Just in time for the holiday season… and the it’s FREAKIN COLD season!

If you are as blessed with the freezing weather as we are in Maine…  it’s time to stay in and well… eat.  BUT because everyone reading this is or will be working towards being Healthy and Happy I thought it was a perfect time to give you my favorite “healthy” comfort foods.

Don’t worry, I am not Martha Stewart or Debbie Crocker so these recipes will be simple and easy!

Today’s Recipes Turkey Chili:

Photo: Healthy version on comfort food! Turkey chili!!! Even the big man liked it! 
1 lb turkey
2 cups Crushed tomatoes
16 oz of black beans 
16 oz of kidney beans
1 onion 
2 cups water
Season to your liking (I like a little kick to mine)

Don't forget to portion it out and you'll have yummy lunches all week!

1 lb turkey (Normally 85%- 94% fat free)
2 cans Crushed tomatoes (I get the Nature’s Place Organic brand for this and the beans)
16 oz of black beans (drain and rinse)
16 oz of kidney beans (drain and rinse)
1 onion
2 cups water
Season to your liking (I like a little kick to mine)

Cook the meat then add it all together in a pot. (told you simple)

Let everything cook together for 20-30 mins on low and enjoy. 

I like to add a tablespoon of Non Fat Greek Yogurt on top instead of sour cream.

Don’t forget to portion it out and you’ll have yummy lunches all week! I did 1.5 cups.

If you are someone that likes to track Macros I would recommend dividing the chili up into as equal  weight (ounces or grams) as you can, then split the macros up that way.  Know it won’t be exact but it will give you a good idea.
