Klean Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

When have you ever heard of vegetarian chili providing 20 grams of complete protein in one serving? Not to mention the crazy nutrient density profile that this chili will offer your hard-working body. You will receive 10% of the Daily Value for 10 vitamins and 9 minerals. A bowl also provides half of your daily fiber requirements. Keep this in mind when choosing the best time to enjoy a bowl.  Limit the amount of fiber you consume 2 hours before moderate exercise training and increase that time to four hours before heavy training or competition. Also, limit your fiber intake after you exercise so your body can properly rehydrate and restock glycogen stores. On another note, this chili does lack vitamin B12 and vitamin D which is a very common predicament in vegetarian-based foods. The solution: top your warm bowl of chili with fortified soy- or regular cheese or grab a tall cool glass of cow’s or fortified plant milk. You can also add mushrooms to your mix, but be sure to let your mushrooms sunbathe for a day or so to support their vitamin D-producing power.
