Chili can be a really good meal for you. Make is with extra lean ground turkey or chicken or beef. Use salt free chili powder not the premade chili seasoning you can buy. Use a lot of vegetables. Beans are goood for lowering your cholestrol and the fiber is good for you. You can eat chili as is in a bowl, or pour it over a baked potatoe or pour it over a plate of greens. Good luck to you.
