Pumpkin Black Bean Chili

Saturday, November 12, 2011

One of our Sleek Body clients found this recipe on

In Sleek we preach clean eating and frequent this site often.
The author really takes the guesswork out of eating clean and comes up
with some fabulous fare for our foodies!

I wanted to re post this and encourage you to visit her website for more awesome recipes.

Sleek Body Boot Camper, Laura made this and her review was  "yum".
Plus she mentioned that her house smelled like pumpkin so that equals "Win" as well.

You could also remove the turkey  and use vegetable stock for a meat free version of this.

Here you go
