Chili Con Quorn

Posted Nov 01 2011 8:34pm

I love the holidays and all, but really.

Dinner was quick tonight, thanks to me preparing my food for the week on Saturdays!

Chili is one of my favorite meals. I absolutely love the combination of chili, mexican cheese, sour cream greek yogurt, and multi grain corn chips.

I used AmyBites recipe, but subbed out Trader Jose’s (Trader Joe’s, love their humor) frozen roasted corn in place of the turkey, plus I added white kidney beans.

On the side, I had some of TJ’s chips and tried out the new Quorn meatless meat-balls that I picked up this weekend.

Verdict: Would be really awesome on a sub with red sauce and mozzarella cheese, but not bad chopped up in chili.

Some fun things:

Today, Monica posted the Pile on the Miles spreadsheet. The idea of Pile on the Miles is to encourage us to pile on the miles and not the pounds this November. Every week, if you run at least 5 miles, you are entered to win some fun prizes. Good thing I’ve been taking my Glucosamine Chondroitin , which has been helping my hips tremendously. I have been having no pain while running lately, knock on wood!

Secondly, I signed up for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap of 2011 . Go check it out! I can’t wait to get some new and different sweets to try, and come up with a fun recipe to prepare and mail out.

My Netrition order came today, heavy as always!

I get a workout just pushing this thing into the kitchen from the front door. It was filled with gross Pure Protein shakes for Joe, Isopure protein powder to share, and some other goodies I threw in my basket before checking out.

Peanut flour , cacao nibs , coconut oil , and the usual free towel with purchase.

Now I’m off to study a bit and get some sleep. I may be late in posting tomorrow, but I get to meet Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins, The Sound of Music, Princess Diaries) because of an event we are holding at work. How fun! :)

  • Do you order your protein powder/products in bulk online? From where?
  • Quick: recipes that I can use coconut oil, peanut flour, and cacao nibs in!?!?!
