Turkey Chili (paleo)

Print

As a bodybuilding competitor and nutritional coach for various competitive athletes, I’m always seeking out ways to get in a protein packed low carbohydrate meal . This recipe puts a twist on the traditional chili removing the beans and adding some extra kick. It’s easy to make with minimal ingredients and can be made in a large quantity to eat over multiple days.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Jaclyn's Paleo Turkey Chili could not be more on trend. With the rise of diabetes and high blood pressure, the American Heart Association has advised one to watch intake of cholesterol and saturated fats. One simple way to do this is to swap beef for turkey. Pair this lean protein with vegetables like onions and mushrooms and you have one star studded meal. Onions contain vitamin C, granting improved immunity as well as chromium which aids in regulating blood sugar. Mushrooms contain antioxidants which help fight free radicals and B vitamins which are necessary for turning carbohydrates into glucose and then used produce energy.
