Delicious healthy chilli for the whole family to enjoy

I’ve recently started to try harder at eating healthier.  I couldn’t wait for January to come, after all the excesses of Christmas.  Having a small baby too, meant that the easy option was taken more often than not – takeaways, frozen food that can be threw in the oven and forgot about etc.  Not that there is anything wrong with this occasionally but I was doing it most days.  So in January I joined Slimming World and am now 5 weeks in and it’s going good so far!  Now that I’m in the groove I’m starting to experiment more with recipes and ingredients to make meals that the whole family can enjoy.  I must admit that I’ve found it hard work cooking absolutely everything from scratch, especially if I have to cook something else separately for the rest of the family. So laziness is the motivation, in an ironic sort of way, to make me come up with tasty meals for the whole family.
