Keto Chili

I like to consider myself somewhat of a chili aficionado and with that wealth of chili related experience this Keto Chili gets the seal of approval from me.  Now, depending on where you are from you may be saying, “uh...duh all chili is keto”, but not all chili is created equal. There seem to be just as many different regional varieties of chili as there are regions. Texas chili is strictly no beans or tomatoes, Skyline chili is served on a bed of spaghetti, but this chili is sort of a mashup of a few different styles to give you a hearty bowl of the American classic that’s sure to satisfy your tastebuds and keep your macros in check.  

One of my favorite recipes as a boy scout was always chili cooked in a dutch oven over hot coals with a layer of cornbread baked right on top.  Needless to say, next time I make this recipe I will definitely be whipping up a batch of my keto cornbread to recreate my favorite campfire classic.  

This has been a great meal for me to incorporate into my diet as the base for OMAD.  Piled high with toppings and a side (and maybe even a dessert).  Personally, I’ve had a lot of success with intermittent fasting and OMAD.  If you’re new to it be patient and find what works for you, and if the answer is it doesn’t… that's fine! Not all bodies, and therefore diets, are one size fits all and it's okay, do what works for you.
