Easy Vegetarian Chili on Vivente

It is so easy to make a meal vegetarian these days. As an example, in the organic/vegetarian section of the grocery store,  you can find soy crumbles that are a great stand in for ground beef in any recipe. We were in the mood for chili and had the makings for our old family favorite-- Julia's Chili-- which is traditionally made with ground beef (336 cal). However, it was a vegetarian night for our household. As luck would have it, I had a bag of the soy crumbles (thanks to a 2 for 1 sale) in the freezer. So instead of the ground beef we used the soy crumbles. It was delicious and had the same satisfying effect any well made chili has on the soul and body on a cold winter's night.

To complete the meal we had a tossed green salad with shredded carrot and raisins (93 cal) and a whole wheat roll (110 cal) for a total calories count of 535. It was a great meal and a definite repeat.

Enjoy! And Eat Mindfully
