Thanksgiving is 1 week away! I like to eat something healthy the week before indulging all day and this vegan pumpkin chili hits the spot! The pumpkin purée thicken the broth without the added calories, while the bulgur is so filling you won’t miss the meat! Check out the recipe in Curious Cookery’s archives 😋
A fireplace, cozy sweater and this nourishing bowl are all we want during these chilly temps. Chili is one of our go-to meals in the fall/winter and we have tried tons of recipes over the years...but none can stand next to this. Chia seeds are a unique addition that add fiber and give the texture an extra dimension. Cacao + Cinnamon bring out flavor.👌🏼Easy, 💵inexpensive, crowd-pleaser, and ✅packed with nutrients. It makes 7-8 servings but freezes well (hello, easy meal next week). You NEED, trust us.

Chilly weather outside calls for warm chili inside 🌶🍂🍁 My favorite go-to Crockpot Turkey Chili recipe below! Delicious, hearty, full of flavor and the perfect meal to cozy up with when it’s cold outside..
1lb 93% lean ground turkey
1lb 99% lean ground turkey
1 green bell pepper diced
1 sweet yellow onion diced
3 garlic cloves
2 15oz cans organic diced tomatoes (no salt added)
1 can kidney beans
1 can pinto beans
1 6oz can organic tomato paste
1 tablespoon organic Ketchup
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (secret ingredient I learned from my mom)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tablespoon Sriracha.
Rinse off kidney beans and pinto beans in colander. In the crockpot add diced tomatoes, kidney beans, pinto beans, and tomato paste. .
Dice bell pepper and onion into small pieces, and cook on low heat on the stove with a little water and 3 minced garlic cloves. Once cooked, add to the crockpot.
Cook ground turkey on the stove. Once cooked, mash with pastry blender to create small pieces. Add the following spices (not measured—add to your liking): black pepper, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, parsley and a dash of cayenne pepper. Mix together well. Add to the crockpot.
Add all of the spices/flavoring to the crockpot: ketchup, coconut sugar, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, paprika and Sriracha. .
Turn the crockpot on low and cook for 6-8 hours. I prefer to cook my chili ahead of time and eat it the day after I make it as it is more flavorful this way!
Suggested toppings: @fage 2% Greek yogurt (in place of sour cream—tastes amazing!), parsley, and @sietefoods chips or @vansfoods multigrain crackers. Enjoy! .
Lunch time! 😊 When dinner the night before is this yummy and healthy, it’s left overs for the win! Here’s how we make chili in our house 👉🏻 Ingredients: ground turkey, kidney beans, can of diced tomatoes, green pepper, onion, chicken broth, salt/pepper, cumin, chili powder, cinnamon 👍🏻 Amounts? Directions? Sorry, I wing it 😂🤦🏻♀️ Haha no but really it’s chili so it’s simple! Fry up turkey, peppers, and onions all together - then add everything else. Chili consistency people! Easy peasy! Also 👉🏻 I use plain greek yogurt as a sour cream substitute 🙌🏻 A few blue corn tortilla chips also won’t hurt ya - oh and cheese of course 😉 There you have it! Perfect fall chili! I’ve also added pumpkin purée or butternut squash to it before - also perfect for cold fall and winter days 🍁🍂 #tiuteam#fallfood#healthylifestyle#healthychili#healthyeating
Turkey veggie chili ✔️ My chili might not be very traditional, but it’s super tasty! Can you believe there’s about TEN different veggies in this? Cubanelle, bell, chipotle & jalapeño peppers, leeks (last bit from my garden), red onion, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, tomatoes, Tuscan kale, corn, black beans & pinto beans! 😋 So much flavor... so much yum!
Chili fan? Okay maybe it's more of a hearty soup! Either way my hubby loves this dish! 🔥🍅
Here's what I did:
Add garlic and onions to a soup pot and sauté with olive oil, sea salt and dry spices like cumin and smoked paprika. (When working with dry spices I always add them to the cooking process as early as possible to give them time to come alive again!)
Next add diced carrots and celery and sauté for a couple min more. Finally 1 can of diced tomatoes, black beans and pinto beans go in, and Cover with vegetable broth. ✨
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for about 15 min. ✨
I had leftover chicken in the fridge so I shredded it and added it in. This would also be good with ground turkey or beef!
Serve with organic blue corn chips which are super high in selenium!
Kinda getting this whole vegetarian thing down. White bean chili. Healthy and cheap 👍, which is great because I have some big personal finance goals in mind for 2018, so healthy/budget friendly staple meals are key👏. #budgetlife#fallfoods#cheapmeals
Needing something warm today?? Try a two bean chicken CROCKPOT chili!
The chicken breasts are a healthier take on traditional chili, without sacrificing taste. Try topping with @siggisdairy plain skyr and avocado for some added healthy fats and creaminess! 🥑
- Soy beans are one of the richest plant based protein sources (28.5g per 1 cup, boiled)
- Some beans are not complete proteins, meaning they don’t have all the essential amino acids that the body needs
- Combining beans with grains (through the day) is a way of ensuring you consume complete proteins
- Their digestion can be made easier by soaking them before cooking and by cooking for the appropriate amount of time
📷:🌶 Three Bean Chili 🌶 .
- El frijol de soya es una de las fuentes vegetales más altas en proteína (28.5g en una tasa)
- Algunas legumbres no son proteínas completas, es decir que no contienen todos los aminoácidos esenciales
- Combinar legumbres y cereales (durante el día) es una manera de asegurarse de consumir la proteína que necesitamos
- Para digerirlos mejor, es bueno dejarlos remojando antes de cocinar, y que se cocinen durante el tiempo adecuado

My dad always used to make chili when we were kids (along with goulash, oyster stew😝, and rice pudding) - and although I loved his version, I also love Wendy's chili (anyone else?🙋🏻) So this version is kind of a mix between the two, only with extra protein💪🏼, reduced sodium, and extra veggies. This truly is the BEST chili I’ve ever made (possibly ever had) so I hope you try it!😉 #Vegan subs on the blog, plus the difference between #grassfed and #organic beef 👍🏼

Colder weather calls for chili on the reg. My chili is a healthier version packed with tons of veggies...I even sneak in some spinach!💪🏼🌱
What you need:
-1 yellow onion, chopped -2 cloves of garlic, minced
-1 bell pepper, chopped
-1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
-1 can of kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
-1 can of garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
-2 cans of diced tomatoes (14.5 oz each)
-1 lb of organic, lean ground beef or turkey (omit completely if vegetarian)
-2 T of chili powder
-1.5 t of cumin
What to do:
-Sauté onion and garlic with a little bit of olive oil in a big pot
-In another pan, cook the ground meat until almost done, season with a little salt, pepper, garlic powder and a little chili powder
-Once onions are cooked through, add the chopped bell pepper, beans, tomatoes, meet, and 2 T of chili powder + 1.5 t cumin
-Mix together and let simmer and cook together until it starts to thicken up...just through the top on, heat to low and keep checking
-5-10 minutes into the step above, throw in a few handfuls of fresh spinach...and mix. Cover again to let spinach cook down.
-Just let the pot sit and for all the flavors to come together. The longer it sits the better it tastes! (I like making it earlier in the day for this reason & leftovers are the bomb!)
-When ready to eat, add chili toppings of your liking. Me personally- I like adding some pickled jalapeños and avocado!
*Note: this recipe is very forgiving, so feel free to add or double ingredients to your liking
All my #joplinmo friends know what “spaghetti-red” is (basically chili on top of spaghetti)
But I decided to kick-up-the-health in this childhood favorite dish with my favorite spicy bean-free chili over spaghetti squash!
3 T chili powder
2 T cumin
1 T ground black pepper
1 T salt
1 T garlic powder
1.5 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp cayenne
* 2lbs grassfed ground beef, browned and drained * 3 bell peppers, chopped (red/yellow/orange)
* Whole onion, chopped
* Whole zucchini, chopped
* 2 garlic cloves, minced
* 28 oz can of organic tomato sauce * Large container of fresh pick de Gallo (can also use 2 cans rotel if you don’t have access or homemade pico!)
* 2tsp extra dark unsweetened cocoa powder * OPTIONAL: whole jalapeño, de-seeded and sliced (I usually don’t add for guests as I never know anyone’s spice tolerance).
# ** cook and drain ground beef and place beef in crock pot. In same pan, add peppers/onions/zucchini and sauté a few minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Pour veggies in to crock pot and top with tomato sauce, pico, cocoa powder, chili seasoning (and optional jalapeño if using). Stir to combine and set on low 8 hours.
I do a taste test about halfway through and may add more sea salt, chili powder, garlic powder- etc. depending on how flavors are melding.
I serve mine over organic spaghetti squash with a little grassfed aged cheddar and fresh thyme 👌🏼👌🏼 Bon Appetit!

It was finally chilly enough today for some chili!!! 😍
I've been waiting for some fall weather🍁🍂so I just couldn't resist today! And the best part??---I didn't even have to lug all my kiddos out to the store for the ingredients! I just threw in whatever I already had 😆
✔️Turkey meat-thawed from freezer
✔️Diced tomatoes and juice
✔️Spices---chili powder, cumin, garlic, white pepper, light cayenne, parsley
👉🏽👉🏽👉🏽Throw it all in big pot to cook and simmer. I added some water also so the liquid could marry all the flavors together.
Then top it off with some fresh jalapeños and green onions, while the kids topped theirs with sour cream and grated cheese. And there ya have it!! Comfort food without the guilt. I'm pretty stoked on how tasty this turned out that of course I had to share😊

Chili is a fall favorite staple meal in the G house - and it is so easy and quick to make and healthy! It’s one of those comfort foods that are perfect this time of year as the weather starts to drop. What are your favorite fall meals? I always love trying new recipes or recreating healthier versions of my favorite childhood recipes 😋
It also felt great to get back to the gym tonight after 3 non-training days in a row! I usually don’t like going that long between workouts but sometimes life gets in the way or our bodies need the extra rest and recovery and that’s ok. Days I don’t lift I add in some sort of active recovery, mobility or movement.
Slow cooker turkey & black bean chili! Used sweet potatoes, peppers, fire roasted canned tomatoes, onion, garlic, ground turkey breast, avocado oil, and lots & lots of spices, cooked all day in the slow cooker. Plus I have a ton to freeze!
