Body-Builder’s High Protein Turkey Chili

Chili is one of my all-time favorite winter dishes. Whether you’re outside shoveling snow or in your home gym pumping weights, it’s nice to take a break with a warm bowl of chili. In this case, the body-builder’s chili is packed with even more protein than a typical bowl of savory beans! The added turkey is rich in protein and an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, especially B vitamins. Even better than the mouthwatering flavor is the fast build and ability to easily reheat for pre-made meals every day of the week.
