Fat Burning Chilli

 

RECIPE OF THE WEEK:

Fat Burning Chilli

Serves 4-6

  • 500g lean ground meat (use ground grass fed beef but lean ground turkey or chicken can work also)
  • 1 large red pepper diced
  • 5-6 jalapeno peppers diced (adjust based on your desired "hotness") 
  • 2 onions diced
  • 2 tbsp extra coconut oil
  • 1 large can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 can of kidney beans or black beans (good source of antioxidants and fibre) 
  • half a bag of frozen chopped spinach (adds extra nutrient density... add in towards the end of cooking)
  • 2 tbsp molasses (this is a good source of antioxidants, adds great flavour, and only adds minimal sugar)
  • 1 or 2 tbsp of chilli powder
  • 1 or 2 tsp of cumin
  • 1 or 2 tbsp of crushed garlic
  • 1/2 cup oat bran (adds fibre and also helps soak up some of the extra moisture)
  • 1 ripe avocado (for use as a topping after chilli is cooked)
  • Some grass-fed raw cheese if you can find it (topping after cooked)

Use a large pot and start with the coconut oil and ground meat cooking. Just start adding all of the diced vegetables and other ingredients as you get them ready. Once it's all together and cooking in the pot, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 40-50 minutes.

Serve and top each bowl with freshly diced ripe avocado (more satisfying healthy fats) and sprinkle with shredded raw grass-fed cheese. You've got an awesome hot delicious meal! Save the leftovers for healthy lunch or mid meal breaks and take 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.
