When I had read the report from my doctor about my BMI... and my higher-than-oughta-be blood pressure... and my cholesterol screaming at me as usual. It was time to do something. I knew it. In fact, I had been knowing it. Sometimes it just takes a jolt to shake you up a bit, set you into action.
One of the suggestions on that report was that I check out SlenderKitchen.com. Well, if they recommended it, it must be good. And, true, it was, but I had a bit of trouble making it work for me. I still get on the site and get recipes, tips, encouragement but I also started searching for any recipes that had the nutrition chart with them wherever I can find them.
How much saturated fat does this one have? How many calories in one serving of that one? I started paying attention. I subscribed to a couple magazines. My favorite is Allrecipes.
So, I get in the kitchen and see what's in my cupboard. Not good!! Most of the boxes are filled with 'white stuff'. Nope, that's not good at all. I threw out cake mixes, white flour, Hung onto my white sugar (my fellow likes sweet tea and he's not interested in changing his eating habits).
And, I found the ingredients to make my first "HEALTHY" dish.
SWEET POTATO - BLACK BEAN CHILI
I'm off to a good start. Oh, I didn't have the chipotle chiles so used more chili powder instead.
Do you have a favorite healthy chili recipe? Would you share it?
