Delicious and VERY spicy, this chili hit the spot. I have 3 portions in the freezer. For some reason, I seem to be needing to eat a lot of spice lately. If it's not actively making me sweat or burning me, I am not enjoying it. hmmmmm.....
This chili contained sun dried tomatoes, TVP, quinoa, spinach, corn, habaneros, cilantro, lime juice, onions/garlic/spices and fresh tomatoes. I topped it with some avocado..
Lightly steamed broccoli with nutritional yeast/walnut/miso topping. I ate the whole pan for dinner. Simple is best sometimes. This could be made raw easily in the dehydrator.. as is, the broccoli was so lightly steamed and then just tossed in a hot cast iron to get a char on the outside... the topping was raw.
Speaking of raw, I used chia seeds to make the breakfast pudding. I soaked them in water with stevia and cinnamon, then topped it off with blueberries, coconut and walnuts. 2 T of seeds made around 1/3 cup and it filled me up for breakfast. I'm into these chia seeds... which is surprising cuz the texture is kind of strange and usually something like that would bother me, but these don't at all.
...so my Sept. weigh in was disappointing. I stayed the same... (and actually I gained 5lbs and lost it)... after the raw challenge I had some trouble remembering that eating is for fuel and health, not for comfort!
I am not giving up! I'm in it for the long haul!!
