I had oatmeal, a chocolate protein shake, and broccoli for dinner tonight. Wait… what?! Yes, it’s that time of year. Warm weather is on its way, and soon I’ll be spending my days in oversized sunglasses and a bikini. That’s my plan.

I’m getting ready by eating simple meals, but that only gets you so far. I’ve also been attending hot yoga classes. I’m really hoping the next time I go the guy next to me doesn’t smell like Campbell’s chicken noodle soup. Broth sweat is not cool dude!

Anyway, I’m getting prepared and I’m sure you all can relate. This is real life. I know you want chocolate cake and fluffy cream cheese frosting… I do too. But let’s just play it cool this weekend, okay?

Time to hush up and make some healthy, delicious chili!

ingredients for vegetarian sweet potato bean chili

If I’m making chili, spice is required. Habanero peppers.

Don’t be nervous, spicy is sexy! And hey, you totally don’t have to add them in. Although, I did hear spicy foods will boost your metabolism… just saying.

The nice thing about this chili is that it’s super simple and good for you. Virtually fat-free. Added bonus: this is a vegetarian recipe.

If you’re looking to build muscles, just add in some chicken or turkey. Easy!

Yep, you’ll be beach body ready in no time. Now eat up!
