Past articles can be found in the Nutrition and Hydration section and Recipe section in the Lounge.

In planning ahead for a potluck-style dinner next week, we sat and thought of fall foods. The first thing that comes to my mind is Chili and Cornbread! As soon as October arrived on the calendar I put the staple items on my shopping list – kidney beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, yellow onion, chili seasoning/powder, salsa and Lean ground beef. From there, it’s all about creativity!

Everyone has their chili, made just the way they like it. Mine includes varying degrees of “spicy” and Lots of veggies! If I have extra things around, I like to throw in corn, celery, and green peppers. Another ingredient that always comes in is Salsa. I never leave out the extra kick! 

As a runner, few meals measure up to the nutrient-punch this stew provides. Not only do you have plenty of vegetables for nutrients and antioxidants, but you also have two great sources of protein (beans and beef). Pair this with a side of cornbread (carbohydrates) and a glass of skim milk, and you have a very well-balanced meal. 

Heather’s Homemade Chili

1 c Chunky Salsa
¼ c diced green chiles (optional!)
1 can kidney beans (washed/drained)
1 can black beans (washed/drained)
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 lb Lean Ground Beef (93/7)
½ c each, chopped – yellow onion, green pepper, red pepper (celery and/or carrots optional)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Chili powder, salt, pepper to taste

Heat oil in a large skillet and sauté all vegetables until tender. Add ground beef, chili powder, salt, and pepper. 

In a large pot, combine meat and vegetables, and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, and let simmer for 25-30 minutes. Add additional seasonings to taste (optional – cumin, oregano, roasted red pepper flakes).

Serve topped with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese, and/or with a side of freshly baked cornbread. Enjoy!

What recipe do you associate with Fall? How do you take your chili?

I love going out shopping for food so I can cook it but I have a little tip for those cooking enthusiasts ! Researchers say that if you go out shopping for food while you're hungry you're likely to spend at least double the planned budget on all types of things you don't need like snacks, sweets etc. So not only this is not healthy but it hurts the budget as well !
