Typical chili is filled with fatty ground beef. This version uses turkey instead and is a great source of the amino acid tryptophan, which is necessary for us to make serotonin, the hormone that keeps us relaxed and happy. It is also high in the amino acid tyrosine, which is needed to make other hormones, including dopamine, the pleasure hormone. We all know that when you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, there is nothing better than coming home to a hearty dinner simmering away on the stove. This is a great recipe to throw into the slow cooker in the morning before work. This recipe is from Julie’s Book, Slimming Meals That Heal, published by Random House Canada.
