When it’s cold outside, it calls for something warm and hearty to fill you up. After a successful round of Whole Foods burgers and homemade sweet potato fries (I needed my iron fix for the race on Saturday!), we decided to try our luck at a pot of chili. It’s amazing the healthy and satisfying dishes you can create with just a few ingredients.
M&M Chili (No, not the chocolate candy kind)
-1 can each of black beans, kidney beans, and white beans
-1 can tomato paste
-1 can stewed tomatoes
-chili seasoning, in addition to salt, pepper, garlic powder
Mix all ingredients into large pot over low-medium heat. Cover and let cook for 10-15 minutes, depending on how hot you want it. Add a dollop of fat free plain Fage yogurt and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese for an extra treat! Delicious, but it sure is filling. Best part is–plenty for leftovers.
Also, last night’s burger and sweet potato fries. We filled the patties with a small cube of brie and grilled the burgers (no hormones or additives) on our George Foreman grill to remove any excess grease or fat. For the fries, we sliced 2 sweet potatoes thin and put them on a baking sheet. Spray with olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder and parmesan cheese (if desired).
Hope this food will help sustain me during my 15K!
