If you never thought of chili as a "diet" food start now. Make your chili with ground turkey, Turkey is full of important
nutrients and add your favorite veggies. Also pearl barley has less of an impact on blood sugar more than any other grain. Barley's fiber, protein & low glycemic index all help stave off the accumulation of visceral fat. Make some Barley Soup or as a side with Turkey meat or pork loin.

    I use half ground turkey and half ground beef for my chili. You really can't tell the difference and it is healthier
