of crushed garlicIf you like your chili extra HOT, add some cayenne pepper to the mix also (this is also a metabolism booster!)
a small touch of celtic sea salt (I don't measure... I just use a couple small pinches)
1/2 cup oat bran (adds fiber and also helps soak up some of the extra moisture)
I also like to add some fresh chopped cilantro while it's cooking
some avocado (for use as a topping after chili is cooked and served)
some grass-fed raw cheese if you can find it (topping after cooked)
Use a large pot and start with the olive oil and ground meat cooking. Just start adding all of the diced vegetables and other ingredients as you get them ready. If you want to get a little crazy, and increase the nutrition content of this chili even further, you can even mix the ground meat you're using with ground grass-fed organ meats (like this healthy organ meats article described
) since organ meats are the most nutrient-dense meat types available.
Once it's all together and cooking in the pot, reduce heat to low and simmer for 40-50 minutes. Top each bowl with freshly diced ripe avocado (which adds even more satisfying healthy fats) and sprinkle with shredded raw grass-fed cheese. You've got an awesome hot delicious meal! This recipe makes about 6 servings.
Save the leftovers and bring healthy lunches or midmeals 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.
Approximate macro-nutrient breakdown per serving:
36 g. protein, 44 g. carbs, 9 g. fiber, 14 g. fat (all healthy fat), 430 calories
