Just a warning, you’ll want to save this one.

It’s a kind of recipe that most of us need more of in our life.

You know the kind:

Just delicious and easy and every single person that you give it to, they hum into their bowl, like happy little clams. And then, want the recipe for themselves.

It’s the kind of recipe that gets around that way. That gets made for times when what you’re really wanting to do is give that person a hug. But in meal form. Those are the best kind of meals. The ones that are nourishing, on so many levels.

Think cozy low key dinner parties with close friends (where I first got inspired), Sunday night family dinners, delivering meals to friends with new babies, to superbowl parties (let’s just say).

The fact that it’s healthy is kind of just a bonus.

So, this. Sweet Potato Turkey Chili. —Simply Real Health
