Sweet Potato Chili

Sweet Potato Chili

Well, the weather is still cold as ever here in Chicago so I decided to make one of my winter favorites one last time before Spring comes.

This is a great post workout meal, packed with protein, nutrient dense carbohydrates and vegetables. It will put you on track for muscle recovery, repair and ultimate strength. You should eat your post workout meal about 30 minutes after finishing, because at this time your body absorbs nutrients rapidly in order to recover from lost nutrients during your workout.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
2 pounds of grass fed beef
1 sweet onion
1 can organic kidney beans (or black beans)
1 cup chopped carrots
1 green pepper chopped
2 cans organic diced tomatoes
1 large sweet potato cut in cubes
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon of chili powder
1 table spoon cumin
1 tablespoons coriander
1 tablespoons paprika
1 cinnamon stick
4 cloves of garlic
Couple dashes of red pepper flakes
JalapeƱos (optional to taste)
Cilantro (garnish)

Directions:
Brown the grass fed beef in a pan. Drain the fat and put the meat in a crockpot along with all of the other ingredients. Cook on low for about 4 hours long. Could it get any easier than this?
