Why is it so hard to find an exercise bike with a nice little basket where I can put my nachos?
If you are craving something, make it! Cravings are feelings your body is expressing, it's how your body communicates to your brain that it needs food. Food is fuel, so why should we neglect what makes are body healthy + happy?!
Judging by the title of this post, you can obviously see I was craving chili nachos :) So, I made a version of chili nachos that makes my body + soul happy! You will notice in my recipe that I use phrases like NACHO BOTTOMS and NACHO TOPPINGS. These can be personalized to fit what your body likes. I enjoy using fresh greens and crunchy peppers in my nachos, because it's what makes my whole body feel good. It's also a super simple way to get in your veggie servings-smothered in chili + cheese-count me in!
Enough talking, go get your nacho on!
BONUS: You will definitely have delicious chili leftovers!!
