5-ingredient Easy Chili

5-ingredient Easy Chili

Trying to get back into the swing of things can be hard especially after the long weekend. An easy, hearty recipes like 5-ingredient Easy Chili is exactly what you need.

My plan for tonight is to turn on Netflix, act like it is Sunday and cook 5-ingredient easy chili. It takes about 25 minutes and to make a full flavor chili without all the work. The rest of the evening will be spent on my new Netflix original, Making A Murderer.

If you are like me, you can’t just have classic chili for dinner. It needs to be paired with cornbread and to fulfill my 2016 eating healthy goal, a veggie.

5-Ingredient Easy Chili:

  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey*
  • 3 (15 oz.) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans beans, drained (black beans, kidney beans, a combo, or whatever you like)
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. Chili powder
  • (optional toppings: shredded cheese, chopped green onions, sour cream, cilantro, etc.)

Gym Wear For 2016

A new year always comes with new goals, hopes and dreams. For many of us, that will be eating healthier and joining a gym. I know my membership will get more use. 🙂

For me, the hard part about the gym is not feeling confident in my skin. You’re surrounded by people who stuck with their 2015 resolution and can already run that dreaded mile. My motto this year is to fake it until I make it. Half of the battle is looking the part and being confident in going to the gym. Running the mile will come with enough days practicing. Until then, I am going to be a knockout in my outfit.

To launch you into 2016 and your new gym workout, here are my favorite looks! They are affordable and designed for everyone from the fashionista to the simple pop of color. You can purchase them today with one easy click. Read more
