It was a beautiful 80 degrees in LA over the weekend, so I felt the craving for some chili (weird I know). There was a method to the madness. I am now in the “tapering” period of my marathon training, so food is even more important in these next two weeks. So I thought chili would be the best choice, it’s full of veggies, protein and carbs. So I decided to visit my favorite site Post Punk Kitchen to see what amazing chili recipes I could find. I sure did find a gem, Red Lentil Thai Chili. This recipe is so perfect, it has beans and lentils both packed with protein. The sweet potatoes are full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients. It is really filling, the lentils thicken up the base and the added coconut milk makes it even more creamy. This recipe is really easy to make, I really did enjoy this dish. Another one to add to the favorite pile.
