This hearty and delicious meal will quell any appetite. Made with healthy and lean grass-fed bison, this chilli can be enjoyed at the time of cooking, but it’s even better the next day once all of the spices and vegetables have had a chance to meld together. It’s packed with nutrient-dense vegetables like onions, tomatoes and peppers, while the garlic, chilli powder and green chilies give this dish some heat. You can add sweet potatoes, which are rich in the eye-healthy nutrient beta-carotene, to give it a little more oomph. For the full recipe, click here.

2. The Bear's Zero Carb Chicken Recipe

“The Bear” (Owsley Stanley) is one of the founders of the Zero Carb way of eating. He ate basically zero carb and mostly from the animal kingdom for 50 years before his untimely death in 2011 after a car accident. This chicken is very filling and flavorful and makes it own wonderful “gravy” too! For the full recipe, click here.

This salad makes a perfect lunch to pack to the office. It is very easy to prepare, and you can prepare a week’s worth and put in the fridge, as long as you stack the layers correctly. The veggies for this salad can either be roasted or raw. If raw, the key is to chop them very small, about ¼ inch pieces. If roasting, chop the broccoli, carrot, and cauliflower into 1 inch pieces, coat with a little olive oil, and roast in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until veggies are tender. Layer in the jar as listed in the ingredient list here.

This recipe is a winner because a) you only need four basic ingredients to make it, b) it’s extremely easy to make, c) it takes no time to put together, c) it’s super healthy – in the sense that it features a perfect combination of lean protein, healthy fats, and fiber. It’s also very low in carbs, gluten-free, and dare I say ‘paleo’? Here is the recipe.

10. Mini meat loaf

Some things, like the meatloaf, are best left alone. It’s the perfect archetype of comfort food. It’s easy, it’s wholesome, it’s inexpensive, and it’s foolproof. The Mini Me Meatloaf takes only fifteen minutes in the oven and is perfectly portioned so that you don’t over comfort yourself — if you know what I mean. This recipe uses ground beef, but you can substitute turkey burger or pork, or a combo of your favorite ingredients. Oats keep the meatloaf nice and moist, but you may prefer breadcrumbs. You’re welcome to get fancy with mushrooms, sautéed onions and different spices, but for a down and dirty meatloaf that sticks to your ribs, keep it basic. For more, click here.
