Before I started my weight-loss journey, I was such a picky eater. The thought of eating raw vegetables and fish literally made me cringe. For me, part of becoming healthier was retraining my taste buds. I had to figure out a way to enjoy the foods I didn't like. I soon discovered that I actually did like many foods I thought I didn't after I found ways to prepare them to suit my preferences. Blackened salmon is one example. I use fresh, wild-caught salmon, which is much less fishy than the farmed variety.
Embracing a healthier lifestyle meant learning to love and enjoy plant-based meals. When I was younger, I struggled with consuming lots of veggies, so today I want my kids to love how fueling their bodies with plant food makes them feel. To do this, I like to sneak as many vegan dishes as I can into our meal rotation. Most of the time, no one even misses the meat! This delicious vegan chili is a staple in our home.
If you have time, making a double batch of these is ideal. Serve some for breakfast and freeze the rest for busy mornings. They're a great way to start the day with a healthy and filling meal, especially if you're in a hurry.
