Happy post Thanksgiving!
The week after Thanksgiving is always weird, right? We're all working off the Thanksgiving bloat and sometimes battling the mental demons that come with that.
But... as I always tell my clients, it’s just one day! We have plenty of time left to crush the rest of the year 👊

EASY NO PREP FOODS FROM THE GROCERY STORE 😋
Easy to prep foods? This is a question I get all the time!
Going to the grocery story and having NO IDEA where to start is not a good feeling. But don't worry, Beckyn & I got you.
We decided to head to our local Kroger to show you some of the best and easiest foods you can buy that require little to no prep.
LEAN MUSCLE CHILI RECIPE
It’s officially winter here in Ohio ❄️ ❄️ andddd that means we get to eat one of my favorite dishes during the cold: CHILI! 🌶️
I came up with this recipe for the Max Effort Muscle potluck, and it was a big hit, so I wanted to share it here!
Cook - 4 slices of Bacon, remove from pan and drain grease.
Brown - 2 lbs 93% Ground Turkey with 1 diced onion (any variety)
➡️ Then add in:
- 8 ounce Can Tomato Sauce
- 3 tbsp Tomato Paste
- 2 Cans Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
- 1 can Reduced Sodium Pinto Beans (drained)
- 1 can Reduced Sodium Kidney Beans
- 1-2 cups of Reduced Sodium Beef Broth
➡️ AND Kiki’s Chili Seasoning Mix:
- 1-2 tbsp Maple Syrup OR Brown Sugar (I used/suggest Tree Knees Spicy Maple)
- 3 tbsp Chili Powder
- 2-3 tbsp BBQ Seasoning (I used Memphis Style Central BBQ - hubby is from Memphis!)
- 2 tsp each
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Cayenne Pepper
- Smoked Paprika
➡️ Stir all together and bring to a boil and then low simmer for 20-30 minutes. Top with a dollop of plain greek yogurt for that tang!
**This batch makes approximately 100 ounces of chili so around 10-12 servings depending on your nutritional needs. I go with an 8 ounce serving which comes out to ~235 calories: 22g Carbs, 7g Fat, and 22g Protein!
