For years, when I made my New Year’s resolutions, I just stated the goals and that was that. I believed that if I had enough willpower, I’d accomplish the goal and when I didn’t, I felt as if I’d failed. I guess I did fail, but I wasn’t a failure. I needed a better understanding of the process of change.
Chili has always been a quick go-to one-pot meal and this chili is no exception. I varied it a bit from traditional chili by using organic ground turkey and gave it a rich, deep flavor with the smoked paprika and chipotle chili powder.
As you establish goals, keep in mind that as your health improves, your brain and mood will most certainly improve, meaning that discipline, consistency, and motivation will become so much easier. That positive, feed-forward cycle!
