I was surprised to find that many people don't realize that chili can be a VERY healthy meal. And no, this does NOT mean you have to use turkey or chicken to make the chili... actually certain types of red meat are typically MUCH healthier (since most of the chicken and turkey farms in the US raise unhealthy birds fed the wrong types of feed), so grass-fed beef or bison are many times a better choice than turkey or chicken, despite the average person thinking that chicken or turkey are healthier.
I hope you enjoy!
Plus, this recipe has a few interesting ingredients
... like the small amount of dark chocolate...yes, in chili!
Geary's Fat-Burning Healthy Chili Recipe:
Use a large pot and start with the olive oil, butter, and ground meat cooking. Just start adding all of the diced vegetables and other ingredients as you get them ready. If you want to get a little crazy, and increase the nutrition content of this chili even further, you can even mix the ground meat you're using with ground grass-fed organ meats (like this healthy organ meats article described) since organ meats are the most nutrient-dense meat types available.
Once it's all together and cooking in the pot, reduce heat to low and simmer for 40-50 minutes. Top each bowl with freshly diced ripe avocado (which adds even more satisfying healthy fats) and sprinkle with shredded raw grass-fed cheese. You've got an awesome hot delicious meal! This recipe makes about 6 servings.
Save the leftovers and bring healthy lunches or midmeals with you to work each day.
It doesn't get any more nutrient dense than this! This is the type of meal that is so dense in micro-nutrients, that it will satisfy your body's needs for nutrition (hence, eliminating cravings), but do it without overloading on calories or spiking blood sugar too much.
Approximate macro-nutrient breakdown per serving:
36 g. protein, 38 g. carbs, 9 g. fiber, 15 g. fat (all healthy fat), 395 calories
