Vegetable Chili

VegetableChili-720

Looking for a way to warm up during these cold winter months? Then bring on the heat! Chili not only warms your body, it also provides healthy nutrients. What makes this recipe so nutritionally fabulous is the little green legumes floating throughout. The lima beans in this recipe provide protein and fiber to keep you full as well as vitamins C, A, K, B6 and folate to help keep those winter colds away!  In addition, 1/2 cup of lima beans provides over 10% of the recommended daily iron, a nutrient that many individuals do not consume enough of. Since lima beans are a non-heme iron, the vitamin C in the vegetable juice will increase its rate of absorption by nearly three times a perfect pairing! Get the recipe here.
