Loser Monday... Yippee!

I've lost ONE pound since the last time I weighed myself... can't quite remember when that was. Hey, it's a loss - I'll take it!
And a recipe to share. I found this in a magazine at the gym and tried it the next night. Delicious! And healthy! And so easy!
Three Bean and Turkey Chili

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 can diced tomatoes with jalapeño peppers
1 10.5 oz can of each: chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans
1 can low-sodium chicken broth
¼ tsp each salt and cumin
1/8 tsp each cinnamon and cayenne pepper

Heat oil on medium-low heat. Sauté onion until transparent. Add turkey and brown 5 minutes. Add other ingredients. Bring to a boil then lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Done!
I'll be back tomorrow with photos of my Spring Spell quilt, which I finished yesterday. I have a sore finger from sewing on the binding. boohoo.

Congrats on the 1-lb. loss. A month ago, I had lost 6 lbs. in 2 weeks and was very happy with myself. Then.....since I injured my ribs on Mother's Day, I have gained 4 of those lbs. back. *sigh*

WOOHOO! Good for you! Wish I liked beans so that I could try the chili recipe but I will skip it. Beans are yucky. LOL!
