In our area of North Carolina, we’ve been battling bouts of snow and rain producing flood conditions. We’re about two days into a six day run of rain and with the combined temperatures of 40 degrees, we could really use some warming up. It also seems that any time we get wet weather, I have someone in my house come down with a case of the sniffles. I wanted a way to give some comfort in this dreary weather but also boost everyone’s immune system so I pulled out my dad’s Super Easy Chili recipe and tweaked it with my favorite Mushroom Extracts to give it the umph* we need to make it through what appears to be our own little monsoon season. But you know what they say, if you don’t like the weather in North Carolina; give it a minute, it’ll change!

Add FreshCap Mushrooms to my Dad’s Super Easy Chili Recipe

chili ingredients

You’ll Need:

  • 1 15 ounce can of Red Kidney Beans
  • 1 15 ounce can of Pinto Beans
  • 1 15 ounce can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 8 ounce can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 8 ounce can of Sweet Corn (i used half a 15 ounce can because that’s all I had on hand)
  • 1 pound of ground beef (or your preference of ground meat, preferably something that is lean)
  • 1 16 ounce container of beef broth
  • 2 tbs Chili Powder
  • 1 tbs cumin (This is one of my favorites from the Chef’s Collection at Burlap and Barrel)
  • 1 tbs Paprika
  • 1 tbs Oregano
  • 1/2 tbs onion powder
  • 1/2 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 scoop of Thrive 6 FreshCap Mushroom Extract
  • If you like spice, add whole chilies until you reach the desired heat index (see my favorite from Burlap and Barrel)
  • salt and pepper to taste

To cook:

  • Brown the ground beef with the above mentioned seasonings (this is why you want something lean, as I typically do not drain fat and cook the meat with seasoning from the start to really impart some flavor)
  • Add the additional canned ingredients and stir
  • Depending on how ‘soupy’ you like your chili, add in the beef broth until you get your desired consistency
  • bring to a boil and reduce to the lowest temperature and simmer for 2-3 hours
  • Serve with CORNBREAD or saltine crackers, sour cream, and cheese.
  • **BONUS – you could put this in the crock pot in the morning and it will be ready for supper at the end of the day

I do my best to buy organic and non-GMO food and beverages. Every once in a while, something slips through. I forget to read the labels and I end up buying GMO foods, usually from the big brand products! I am disappointed that big companies haven’t made the switch for healthier alternatives.

Healing the Body with Alternative Hemp Products

I have been on a journey to heal my body with alternatives to harmful and addictive medications. I suffer from depression, anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and low back pain associated with Sciatica. I advocate constantly for mental health and I promote alternative healing. However, that being said, I also support those who choose therapy and medication. For myself, I have found that the best path has been alternative medicine and natural, plant based products.

Get Excited About the Day with Cold Brew Coffee

I work a desk job and sometimes it is difficult to find that push I need to start my day. I have the great opportunity of flexing my schedule so that I can have Friday’s off but, unfortunately, that means I work 10 hour days Monday – Thursday. Sometimes the days drag on and I hit that mid-morning and mid-afternoon wall and I go searching the break-room for coffee.

Gardening for the Brown Thumb

Recently, I have been trying to teach my daughter how to grow food and flowers as she is learning so much while in her preschool class. They have been going over how flowers grow, why leaves change, and where food comes from. However, I will be the first to admit that I have NO gardening experience whatsoever. I was raised by my Southern grandmother and while she grew up on a farm and had a garden of her own, the green thumb did not pass down.

I’ve always had terrible skin. As a teenager, I suffered from painful acne and oily skin. As an adult, I cannot say that much has changed. Throughout the years, I have learned that certain products make my hormonal acne worse and I searched for skincare items that I could trust. I mainly fell upon washes and spot treatments that were made by individuals running Etsy shops that produced great products that featured essential oils. The only downside was that I was missing that prescription grade treatment, while maintaining Vegan, to really knock out my breakouts.

School has been back in session for a few weeks now and the daily grind of getting everyone up, dressed, and fed is becoming even more taunting than the day before, Breakfast is one of the biggest components. Finding something that is both delicious and healthy while quick to eat can sometimes be difficult. Heres a few simple ideas that you may typically overlook in a rush using a few of Barbara’s cereal selection! I have also included a cereal from Mom’s Best line just to provide variety. Feeding your children a healthy breakfast doesn’t always have to be an in-depth process. There’s also no reason that just because you’re a parent who uses cereal as a breakfast item, that you don’t keep your child’s health in mind.

Are you readying to switch up your child’s breakfast with just a few changes?
