Chili

My recipes are grain free, refined free and many are dairy free. Many people have switched to an AIP diet or other diets to improve their health. Has my health improved? It has. I have been taken off all but one medicines by my Western medical doctor because of my lab results. I am under the care of a Western medical doctor and a Functional doctor. I only use butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, or nut oils. I don’t eat any hydrogenated fats, potatoes, or nitrates. I am currently on supplements.

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the chill in the air and being able to leave the windows open at night. The scenery that mother nature paints with its various colors is truly amazing. Nature paints like my favorite painter Pierre Augustine Renoir. The chill in the air means hot apple cider, pie’s, soups and oven baked items that help to heat your home and exude luscious aromas. I look forward to Fall foods that not only nourish your soul but heat your home and create long-term memories. I know we all have certain smells invoke memories. These memories can be from childhood and remembering making cookies with our mom or dads or kids.

One of my son’s favorite dishes is this chili recipe. He and my husband often ask for it. I am not a fan of super spicy food. I do, however, believe slight spice and heat are a wonderful addition to foods. This Chili is really yummy with my Bacon and Cheddar Scones.

Be sure to check your labels for no salt added beans, tomato paste, and tomato sauce.
