Sherene's Comfort Food Chili

1 lb Ground Turkey or ground beef...
1 head cabbage, roughly chopped
3 bell peppers (mix of green, orange, yellow, red), roughly chopped
3 large cloves of garlic (or 1.5 TBS good garlic powder – i.e. Whole Foods’)
1 large onion, roughly chopped
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
4 TBS chili powder
3 TBS ground cumin
1-2 TBS real salt (depending on how salty you like it – I used 2 ;))

In a non-stick skillet, brown meat, and add garlic at the end to soften. 

Add chopped cabbage, peppers, turkey, onions and garlic to a large crock pot. Note: it might start out very full, but it will cook down. Sprinkle spices and salt evenly over the top of the pot, and cover. 

Cook on High heat for approx 6 hours, or on low heat for approx 9 hours. Mix thoroughly and serve hot. 

Note: in maintenance, you can add 1 can of black soybeans for texture. This only adds .5g carb per serving. 

Makes approx 12 - 2/3 cup servings, each consisting of approx 1.5 oz protein & 2 cup veggies. Note: this contains equivalent of approx 1/4 tomato per serving
