Bison & Vegetable Chili

When it comes to our diet, variety is important.  Eating a variety of grass-fed pasture raised meats, wild fish, and an array of colorful fruits and vegetables helps us get the nutrition we need to thrive.  That’s why today’s recipe is made with grass-fed Bison!  Plus, an array of different color vegetables.

Chili is perfect for cold weather but it’s usually packed with beans and served with corn bread, none of which is Paleo friendly.  This recipe substitutes beans with tons of veggies for a nutritionally dense dish.  Skip the corn bread and serve this chili with grain free tortilla chips from Siete Foods. Check out the recipe below.
