Healthy Eats

We're always trying new things in our house and the latest healthy lifestyle choice we've decided to try is a vegetarian dish 2 days per week. My first day wasn't that bad and as always I'm here to share my experiences and fill you all in.

For dinner, I made this healthy vegetarian chili. It wasn't half bad but in my opinion it takes some getting use to. I followed the recipe and added a few tweaks of my own.
