Beef & Veggie Chili

Once again, I’m trying to get back on track by cleaning up my eating and get myself into the gym a little more regularly. I’ve had a rough few months which has translated into lot of stress eating and a few extra pounds.

Our gym has a 60 day challenge, so Steve and I signed up for it. It will hopefully keep us accountable for what we’re eating since we have to weigh in once a week.

Beef & Veggie Chili

Even though I’m trying to clean up my eating, it doesn’t mean that I want to sacrifice flavor.  I love food too much to just settle for bland food.

To keep things interesting, I like to modify old recipes to make them more healthy, as well as look for inspiration to create new recipes that are healthy and full of flavor.

Beef & Veggie Chili

Enter beef & veggie chili.  I absolutely love chili and could eat it almost every day without getting tired of it. I decided to mix things up a bit by adding extra veggies to a big pot of chili. It’s a great way to get an extra serving of veggies and it tastes amazing.

I used some of the usual suspects in my chili, like onion and tomatoes. To increase the nutrition even more, I add red bell peppers, carrots and mushrooms.

I know that you don’t typically find mushrooms in chili, but trust me, it works.  I only used 1 1/3 lbs of beef for a LARGE pot of chili, so the mushrooms add some additional “meatiness” and really do add delicious flavor to the chili.
