Vegan Chili I am lover of delicious, warm and hearty meals during the winter months! I used to eat lots of chili before I went vegan, so I had to try my hand at making a vegan version of one of my favorite meals. Try this healthy vegan chili on a cold day. It is fantastic over fries or can be eaten by itself. It will surely warm you up! As an advocate of health, I have discovered that cooking with water instead of oil does not diminish the taste of this meal, so here is low-fat, oil-free vegan recipe for yummy chili.

Ingredients:

1 onion, chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

1 large carrot, minced

1 celery stalk, minced

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 – 15oz can of cooked kidney beans OR 15oz combo of cooked red beans and kidney beans

4-5 Roma tomatoes, chopped OR 1 – 15oz can tomato puree

3 Tbs. ketchup

1 Tbs. chili powder

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

¼ tsp. black pepper

½ tsp. salt

water

Vegan Chili Process: In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, cook carrots and celery for 10 minutes in a small amount of water. Add onions and peppers. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until done. Be sure to add more water, in small increments if mixture becomes dry.

Add tomatoes or tomato puree and all spices. Mash the tomatoes until they become liquid. Add more water for a thinner consistency. Cover and cook for 30 minutes on low heat.

Add beans and stir. Heat for 5 minutes. Serve over French fries or serve with French bread.

Enjoy!

The vegan lifestyle has changed my life profoundly. It has opened my eyes, my heart, my compassion and my spirit more than any other experience in all the years I have lived!

My eyes were opened when I discovered that animals experience unimaginable torture before they are killed for our palates.  I learned we are polluting our earth by the ramifications of factory farming, we are destroying the oceans, and harming the air we breathe. Wanting to refrain from contributing to such brutality on all levels opened my heart. My compassion grew. Finally, my spirit became at peace knowing that when I sit down to a meal, I am choosing to eat the best diet possible for the animals, for the planet, and for the people. Learn more.  You can, too!

Here are some of the benefits I experience as a vegan:

  1. I am healthier.
  2. I have more energy.
  3. I am lighter.
  4. I feel younger than my age.
  5. I am stronger.
  6. I am more alert.
  7. I reduce my chances of getting a degenerative disease.
  8. I am increasing my quality of life.
  9. I do not contribute to torture and murder of animals worldwide.
  10. No animal had to suffer for me to nourish myself.
  11. I am not ingesting death, fear, and suffering.
  12. I am not contributing to global warming, since animal farming is the number one cause of climate change in the world.
  13. I am not contributing to the contamination of the oceans and the annihilation of sea life.
  14. I am not contributing to the elimination of the planet’s forests and fertile land to make room for livestock that is tortured and killed and then fed to populations who are dying from animal-based diets.
  15. I am using less of the earth’s precious water supply: it takes twenty five gallons of water to produce 1 lb. of grain. It takes 2500 gallons of water to produce 1 lb. of meat!
  16. I am not contributing to world hunger: seventy percent of the grain grown in the U.S. alone is used to produce meat; if that grain were fed directly to people, no one on the planet would go hungry.
  17. I am not contributing to excessive waste from factory farms which pollutes our rivers and land.
  18. I am eating delicious vegan cuisine.
  19. I am receiving all the nutrients my body needs.
  20. I am eating healthy, whole vegan food without cholesterol, processed sugar, excessive sodium, GMOs, and added damaging and disease-causing chemicals.
  21. I do not smell foul odors in the kitchen when I cook or prepare my food.
  22. It is easy for me to clean up after preparing and eating vegan food.
  23. I am less irritable, anxious, fearful or worried.
  24. I acknowledge that humans are herbivores and eat what an herbivore is designed to consume.
  25. I have a minimal chance of buying or consuming contaminated food.
  26. I am more spiritually connected to all life.
  27. I am spreading compassion and love.
  28. I respect all life as it is.
  29. I am at peace.
  30. I am living my spiritual truth.

The World Peace DietWhat is the World Peace Diet? A vegan diet, of course! However, the brilliantly-written book, The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony by Will Tuttle, explains thoroughly why a vegan diet is the only diet of choice from various perspectives – spiritual, political, ecological, nutritional and cultural – for this planet. I love books and I love living vegan, so I am facilitating a study of this marvelous book! Join me, Vilma Reynoso, Vegan Health & Lifestyle Coach and Peter B.Roth, Transformational Spiritual Healer, Astrologer and vegan, for a study and discussion of The World Peace Diet: Eating for Spiritual Health and Social Harmony. Our purpose is to dig deep into the reasons why people choose to become vegan and the reasons why it is vital to adopt the vegan lifestyle. You are welcome to join whether you are a seasoned vegan, a new vegan or curious about veganism and if you live in the Denver metro area.

Meetings will be held in Denver, CO, on the last Thursday of the month in January, February, March, and April of 2014.

A bit about me, Vilma Reynoso, and why I wrote this book:

As a child, I grew up consuming my father’s Argentine barbecues every Sunday. Usually ill with colds as a child, I suffered from chronic sinus problems, asthma and respiratory ailments, and was overweight.  As a young adult, I suffered with horrible PMS, fibroids, chronic fatigue, anxiety, mood swings, asthma, intestinal problems, sinusitis, foggy thinking, and even depression.  After evaluating my health and the deaths of both my parents due to heart disease, I became motivated to change my life, one step at a time. I slowly began to change my diet from meat-based to vegetarian, then to vegan, and finally to a mostly raw vegan diet. Healed from most of my ailments, I have never looked back!

Vegan Green Smoothies by Vilms: 35 Easy, Nutritious and Delicious Recipes for Ultimate Health and Vitality is one of several upcoming e-books. I have written it to demonstrate to you, the reader, how taking a small step, such as incorporating green smoothies into your daily routine, can dramatically enhance your life and health.
