6 Healthy Chili Recipes to Enjoy in November

Lee | Fit Foodie Finds

Dust off those slow cookers! Chili is one of those simple, one-pot meals that can be made ahead of time and enjoyed throughout the week. One hearty bowl can pack at least two servings of veggies, lots of lean or plant-based protein and half a day’s worth of fiber. It’s all about choosing the right ingredients. Try swapping out ground beef for quinoa, beans, lentils, or chicken breast, and substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream. Here are six healthy chili recipes to get you started.


Quinoa, beans and lentils work great in chili because they add protein, fiber and loads of texture. They’re also less expensive than meat–especially when purchased dry instead of canned.


Whether you like it pulled or ground, chicken and turkey breast are great in pretty much any chili recipe. Sweet potatoes, cocoa powder and Greek yogurt give these three versions a tasty twist.

Don’t forget, leftovers make great workweek lunches. Just portion out a few single-serving containers so you can just grab one and go in the morning. Now go get your spoon!
