Turkey Chili

1 lb ground turkey
1 onion
1/2-1 green pepper
1 zucchini
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans (can omit if doing paleo diet)
1/2-1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/2-1 cup pasta sauce
1 tbs minced garlic
Chili powder
Cumin
Oregano
Basil

When it comes to me making some things I don’t measure. So I have a guesstimate for most things. As far as the seasonings..I didn’t measure either. It’s more of season to taste. Sorry I wasn’t much help with this one! Still a good recipe though!

Chocolate sweet potato pancakes

1/2 sweet potato
Handful spinach
Almond milk
1 scoop chocolate whey protein powder
1 egg
2 egg whites
Agave nectar
Coconut Flour

In a blender put the sweet potato (already cooked) and spinach together. Blend with a bit of almond milk at a time until they are both completely blended.
Pour into a bowl and mix the remaining ingredients. I ended up adding about 2 tbs coconut flour but I didn’t measure, was going by the consistence.
Cook on medium-low heat in coconut oil.
Top with whatever you like! I topped with just strawberries so the vitamin c in the strawberries can help absorb the iron in the spinach. They are so good and moist, no syrup or anything was necessary. But that will be up to you
