Fall Nourishment

With the cooler weather, it is easy to wrap up in big blankets, with comfort food accompanying us, to warm our bodies. This season, we hope to be as mindful in the kitchen as we are on the mat when it comes to nourishing our bodies. This Turkey and Sweet Potato Chill has all the stops and packs in a lot of healthy goodness. It is the perfect mixture of comfort food meets health and it is so easy to make!

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 large yellow onion, finely diced

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tablespoon chili powder (ancho chile powder if you can find it)
