Easy Veggie Chili

Yummm! I made this delicious Veggie Chili last night. It is super easy and great to make ahead for the week to have when you are on the go! It makes about 7-8 1 cup serving sizes, so it could last you the whole week for lunches or dinner if you are feeding one or could feed a large family for a couple of nights as well!

And let’s be honest, for those of you that live in Texas you know how Bipolar the weather can be, so we always need a good chili recipe on hand for when a cold front rolls in unexpectedly.

I always suggest buying organic when possible to increase the nutrient level in your foods and to also avoid nasty pesticides and herbicides that are toxic to our bodies. Corn is one that I recommend to 100% buy organic because it is high on the list of foods that are genetically modified. 100% organic labels do not permit GMO’s (genetically modified organisms). For more info on what these are and the dangers of consuming them head over and read an article on it here.

For the optional toppings, I used organic plain Greek Yogurt in replace of traditional sour cream, and green onions. I ate it for lunch today and instead of Greek Yogurt I topped it with 1/2 an avocado and it gave it a great creamy texture that I was craving plus some extra potassium and healthy fats!
