Healthy chili

Here is the recipe that I promised!  Enjoy!


  • 1lb lean ground turkey or beef
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1c chopped carrots
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 or 2 chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1 can rinsed kidney beans
  • 1 can rinsed corn (optional)
  • 1oz cashew meal
  • 1/2 bottle V8 hot and spicy juice (low sodium)
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed powder
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a medium saucepan, brown the meat with garlic and onions. Add the spices and let it cook for about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium pot, add the meat mixture.  Add the chopped vegetables, rinsed beans (and corn if using), and the V8 juice.  Bring to a boil and then add the cashew meal.  If you dont have cashew meal, then you can prepare it yourself by processing it a blender until it becomes a powder.  After bringing to a boil, let it simmer for another 40 min  .
