Hello friend! How are you doing in our rapidly changing world? I certainly hope you are doing well. Obviously we are all spending more time at home these days. Finding inspiring or entertaining things to do with your time?
One thing that my fiancee Shawna and I have been doing is adding extra nutritious foods into our diet... striving to keep our immune system firing on all cylinders! Obviously people have been hoarding food recently, but we've had no problem finding fresh produce! We've been heavy on the fruits and veggies for quite some time.
Today I wanted to share one of Shawna's recent healthy creations... it's delicious AND nutritious! Let's all strive to stay as healthy as possible!
Amp Up Your Chili With Immunity Boosting Nutrients!
Chili is a favorite comfort food for many and is loaded with good protein. Adding a few extra ingredients can help boost the amount of vitamins and minerals too, which is an important self-care practice right now. Following is the recipe along with the added benefits!
1 lb. ground beef
1 package chili seasoning
1 large yellow onion, chopped (a great natural probiotic and antioxidant)
1 or 2 cartons of beef broth (depending on your desired thickness)
3 15 oz cans (or prepared dry) of your favorite beans
3 15 oz cans fire-roasted tomatoes (high in vitamin C, A, and other antioxidants)
5 garlic cloves, chopped (a great natural anti-bacterial and immune booster)
1/2 head cauliflower, chopped to small pieces (high in Vitamin C, K, B6, Folate and other antioxidants)
Fresh Spinach, chopped to make approximately 2 cups (high in vitamin A, K, C, Folate, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and other antioxidants)
Saute the onion in a little bit of olive oil until translucent. Add the ground beef and chili seasoning. Once the hamburger is browned, add the rest of the ingredients, adding more broth or water if desired. Simmer for about 45 minutes so all of the flavors meld together!
MUCH HEALTH AND IMMUNITY TO YOU AND YOURS!
