Best Raw Chili Ever… 

Print Friendly 

Description:
So, now for the “piece de resistance”… a delicious wintertime raw recipe guaranteed to keep your body furnace stoked. Note the liberal use of heating herbs!
Kidney beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as are most other beans. In addition to lowering cholesterol, kidney beans' high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, kidney beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein.







Ingredients:
1 – cup kidney beans

2 ¼ - cups chopped fresh tomatoes
¼ - cup soaked sun dried tomatoes
2/3 – cup chopped celery
½ - cup chopped sweet onion
1 – cup chopped green pepper
1 – slice jalapeno
1 – cup cilantro
¾ - tsp sea salt
2 – tsp. chili powder
1 – tsp paprika
1/8 – tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ - tsp coriander
1 tbls. – honey

2 cups finely chopped zucchini



Directions:
1 – cup kidney beans (sprouted)…
soak 1 cup kidney beans in water overnight, drain & rinse. Continue to drain and rinse 2 x’s a day for 2-3 days until little tails start to show. You can either add the sprouted beans directly to the following base recipe or cheat a bit and slow cook your sprouted beans at the lowest temperature of your crock pot until tender. Either way,a sprouted bean has much more nutrition in it than a dry bean. Once a bean is sprouted it becomes living and growing and is no longer in its dormant state.


Vegetable Chili Base…

Blend all the above ingredients for the base, including the soaking water for the sun dried tomatoes, in your food processor or blender and puree.

Combine puree with your sprouted beans and add approximately 2 cups finely chopped zucchini, and ¼ cup finely chopped sweet onion for some added crunch and chunkiness. If you want extra extra chunky chili, don’t process the Vegetable Chili Base, just use as is.



Notes: You simply can’t have only one serving of this…it’s too good!

Wellness Tip
Motivating Yourself to Exercise
A good way for many people to maintain or increase exercise is through finding an upbeat workout partner. Almost everyone does better with encouragement than with negativity, and many people do better if they have another person working with them. Encouraging each other can positively affect your attitude and increase your desire to come back for more.

The Hurley/Osborn Technique
The statistics on back pain state that 80% of all adults will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. Anyone who has experienced physical pain, of any kind, knows that it affects not only your body but your quality of life. Some therapies will relieve the discomfort for a time but having a treatment that is gentle, non-invasive and works quickly towards curing not only the pain and discomfort but the structural reason behind the pain may be of interest. For thirty years I have been using...

Recipe
Gluten-Free Double Mint Chocolate Squares
Category: Gluten-Free
Description: These are great for Valentines or Christmas. You can leave out the food colouring if you like but they won’t have that visual wow factor. Green for Christmas and red for Valentines Day. I like to keep them in the fridge for a cool mint treat. If you're looking for a green colour for your baking try adding a drop or two of chlorophyll.
A healthier option to corn syrup is agave nectar and it has the same consistency.
