Easy Crock Pot Turkey Chili

There’s nothing better than a warm bowl of chili on a cold winter day.

Am I right?!

It’s such an easy well rounded meal I make it at least once a week during the cold months…

I live in Maine so that’s basically 80% of the year.

This turkey chili is mild but extremely flavorful and packed with fiber and protein!

If you’re in a pinch this recipe is perfect because you can set it and forget it!

Easy, healthy, and delicious?!

No wonder this recipes a staple in my house, it will be in yours too!

The BEST Homemade Brownies

Do you like fudge brownies? Cake brownies? Both?

I got you covered. These brownies are the best of both worlds!

Don’t tell me you still use that brownie mix from your grocery store…

This recipe is just as easy!

No, really! It’s fast, just as delicious (if not more), and uses ingredients you probably already have around the house.

All I’m sayin’ is your classic brownie recipe just got an upgrade.

Let’s get to the recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose white flour
  • 1 tsp pink salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1/3 maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 Enjoy Life chocolate chips

How to make…

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and grease an 8×8 pan with ghee or coconut oil.

Step 2: In a medium bowl mix together all your dry ingredients. This includes the all-purpose white flour, pink salt, baking soda, coconut sugar, and cacao powder.

Step 3: In a separate larger bowl beat together the ghee, maple syrup, pure vanilla extract, and eggs.

Step 4: Now add the dry mixture a little at a time folding it into your wet ingredients.

When combined it should look as pictured below.

Step 5: Take your greased 8×8 baking pan and add the batter to it. (The batter will be thick, that’s what you want.) Make sure you take the back of a spoon to level out the batter or your brownies won’t bake correctly.

Step 6: Lastly, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the batter before putting the brownies into the oven. Bake them for 30-35 minutes (less if you like them more on the fudgy side) or until a toothpick comes out clean. Take them out and allow them to cool completely.

Enjoy!!


What Should You Purchase Organic?

Have you ever walked into the grocery store wondering what you should buy organic and what’s okay to skip out on? Buying organic can get expensive so I find it helpful to only buy organic when it’s most necessary.

Have you been there? If you have, I’m here to help!

Something I’d like to mention is that when I’m shopping for food I always bring a list with me. This helps me not only remember everything I need but also helps me save a lot of time and money. Beside my produce items, I write an ‘O’ so I remember to buy it organic, or a ‘G’ so I know I can buy it generic. 

How do I know what to buy organic? 

I use a list called the “Dirty Dozen.” The Dirty Dozen is a list of 12 fruits and vegetables that contain the highest amount of pesticides. This is why they should be purchased organic.  

Below I have listed the “Dirty Dozen” in the order of their pesticide content. 1 containing the most pesticides and 12 having the least. 

  1. Strawberries
  2. Spinach
  3. Nectarines
  4. Apples
  5. Grapes
  6. Peaches
  7. Cherries 
  8. Pears
  9. Tomatoes 
  10. Celery
  11. Potatoes 
  12. Sweet Bell Peppers

The EWG (Environmental Working Group) puts out an updated list every year with the top 12 fruits and vegetables that are swimming in pesticides, and this was 2018’s. 

To stay up to date you can go to the EWG’s website

I hope this helps you prioritize buying these particular produce items organic, while also being able to feel good about buying other produce generic if you please. 

Thanks for stopping by!
