Recipe Of The Day In 4 Ingredients! Turkey And Black Bean Chili!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Chili is delicious and perfect for a Fit lifestyle: it is low in carbs, and high in protein and vitamins. This recipe is very simple, and can be customized! Try substituting the turkey for ground bison, shredded chicken or vegetarian meat - and the black beans for pinto, kidney or cannellini.

I recently made a new friend who said she would love to learn how to make chili (a favorite food) … but has no idea how to cook! This is a good starter recipe because it's hard to mess up. Once the basics are mastered, get fancy by adding chopped onion, peppers and other veggies!

1 pound ground turkey
1 packet chili seasoning*
1 - 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 - 14.5 ounce can black beans, drained

Add turkey to medium sized saucepan, and cook over medium heat until it begins to brown. Drain any liquids. Add remaining ingredients, stir and cook until it begins to bubble. Reduce heat to low, cover pan and cook for 10 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving so the flavors can develop. Garnish with your favorite cheese or avocado and enjoy!

*make your own chili / taco seasoning at home, without the preservatives! For each packet, combine 1 tbsp flour, 2 tbsp dried minced onion, 1 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, 1/2 tsp dried minced garlic, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp ground cumin. Make multiple batches and store in smalli zip lock bags until ready to use.

Dates are amazing!!! They are high in iron, fiber and calcium, and give this loaf cake its rich and sweet texture with no added sugar. Its been said that a date-a-day is good for your health, now you can have your date-cake, and eat it too! This recipe is fast and easy and is as delicious for breakfast as it is dessert!

13 ounces dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup coffee, super hot
1 tablespoon crushed ginger
1 cup self rising flour (if you don't have self rising, make your own using 1 cup flour, 1 1/3 teaspoons baking powder and 1/3 teaspoon salt)

Add dates to bowl, and cover with hot coffee. Let soak overnight, or until soft. Smash dates with fork, add flour and ginger, then stir until well combined. Pour into well-greased loaf pan and bake at 320 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with your favorite preserves or butter, and enjoy!

Mariko pic

Here is a tasty new pancake recipe from Mariko that is a quick and easy way to improve any breakfast!

Almond Pancakes:

These pancakes are high in protein, gluten-free and easy to make. I always eat mine with butter, fresh berries and warm maple syrup. Serves 2

½ cup Greek yogurt
3 eggs
1 cup almond meal (finely ground almonds)

Mix all ingredients together, to form a batter. Heat frying pan to medium-hot heat, and coat with non-stick spray. Drop dollops of batter to make pancakes, baking 2 minutes on each side. Serve warm with your favorite toppings.
