Feeling chilly? Warm up with this heart-healthy recipe!
It’s getting cooler outside. Warm up your insides with some Turkey Vegetable Chili!
First of all, it’s loaded with vitamin C! One serving of Turkey Vegetable Chili provides 57% of the daily nutritional requirement of vitamin C for a 2,000 calorie per day diet.* Vitamin C is important for healing cuts and injuries, absorbing iron, and boosting your immune system so that you can fight infections and viruses.
This recipe is also high in heart-healthy iron. Eating iron can help prevent anemia—a condition caused by low red blood cell count—and helps oxygen move more efficiently through your blood to your muscles and heart, helping prevent stress on your heart and heart failure.
Black beans, bell pepper, tomatoes, zucchini, and squash are high in fiber. Eating enough fiber helps your body process food and makes you feel fuller longer, which is great if you’re trying to lose weight!
