I decided a couple days ago that I needed to buckle down and finish my weight loss journey by getting to my goal weight! In order to help motivate me I signed up for Young Living’s Slique in 60 challenge, and I’m going to do it twice for a total of 120 days. I have been on this journey for awhile, and I would really like to get to the stage of maintaining my healthy weight instead of always battling to lose more.
I am excited for this because it helps give me a fresh start on my journey and helps me continue stronger with an invigorated spirit and perspective.
Tonight I made Sweet Potato Chili in my Instant Pot! It was SO yummy.
Here’s the recipe:
- 1lb. ground turkey
- 1 large sweet potato (peeled and chopped)
- 2 carrots (peeled and chopped)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1 red bell pepper (diced)
- 1-15oz. can petite diced tomatoes
- 1 small can tomatoes with green chilies
- 1-15oz. can black beans
- 1-15oz. can kidney beans
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 c water
On saute mode drizzle a little olive oil and add onion, carrots, sweet potato, and red pepper. Stir and let cook for 2 minutes. Add ground turkey and cook until nearly completely browned. While cooking add the seasonings. When it’s nearly browned add the tomatoes, beans, and water. Stir and switch to “chili” mode and 10 minutes, place lid on and allow it to cook. Do a quick release when finished and enjoy!
After a fairly easy Day 1, I decided to begin a video log of my 120 day adventure! Here’s day 1!
