You can easily make this healthy beef chili recipe vegetarian by swapping out the grass-fed beef for another can of your favourite beans or a few diced carrots and celery. Instead of beef bone broth, opt for your favourite vegetable stock. Voila, vegetarian chili!
As with all my recipes, choosing high-quality ingredients will make for a more nutritious meal. When it comes to beef, opt for organic and grass-fed if possible. The nutrients available in the beef are greater than that of conventional beef.
And remember, you are what your food eats. Animals fed GMO grain that’s been treated with pesticides ultimately ends up on your dinner plate. I created a super handy guide to food labels that may help you figure out what it all means.
When it comes to canned food, always choose items that are in a BPA-free or enamel-lined can. By doing so, you’re avoiding the hormone-disrupting, Bisphenol-A (BPA), from leaching into your food. BPA has been linked to a number of health concerns, including issues for pregnant women, fetuses, and young children.
The National Toxicology Program expressed concern on how the prostate gland, brain, and behaviour in fetuses, infants, and children were affected with common levels of daily exposure to BPA. A 2013 study from China found that long-term exposure in female mammalians leads to endocrine disorders, including fertility issues.
In 2014, researchers from the University of Buea in Cameroon uncovered exactly how harmful BPA is for men as well. This toxic chemical found in the lining of cans and many everyday plastics not only affects sperm quality but also cause male reproductive dysfunction and erectile difficulties.
