It’s soup season with a vengeance! Trader Joe’s stocks these pretty cans full of healthy ingredients to nudge us through the cold and flu season.

For instance, I learned that lentils contain vitamin C! There’s also iron and calcium inside. Who knew?! Eat up and feel good!

Organic vegetarian chili from Trader Joe’s

26 Sep

Fall has arrived. Not only on the calendar but in the air.

Crisp temperatures, cool days and leaves turning yellow and red mean one thing: Chili weather.

As you might remember, I’m not a beef fan. For me, eating chili means substituting beef for chicken, turkey or veggies.

Trader Joe’s makes it easy.

Organic vegetarian chili from Trader Joe’s

I tried this at the tasting bar last week, and it was delicious. Very flavorful without being too spicy, for heat wimps like me.

Doctor it with cheese, onions, Tabasco sauce, sour cream, a little balsamic vinegar and a splash of olive oil, chopped black olives, cilantro … the combos are endless, just like with the meat version, but healthier, fewer calories and less fat.


Thanks, TJ’s!
