To Kat at Twisted Iron Fitness. Thank you for the support thus far. It has shown to be much of improvement not only in my fitness but in my personal life as well. She shows loyalty to her clients while helping to keep the fitness goals on target. I work out regularly during the week, and she has pointed out mistakes in my form which I wasn’t aware of. She will get on you and keep on you during the workout sessions.
So far I have lost about 20 lbs since starting with her this year. I am working to get my body fat into the teens while being in very good cardio shape. Later this year and I plan to take on some fitness challenge events and I think I am on target to do well in them.
For those that stick with Kat, you will see improvements and motivation.
SMOKED PUMPKIN CHILI
- 1 medium to large cooking onion, chopped
- 3 large cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cans (or one large can) of dark kidney beans, drained and rinsed.
- 1 can of low-sodium corn kernels, drained and rinsed
- 1 large (28 ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes, keep the juice
- 1 can pumpkin puree
- 1 cup vegetable broth (or beer of choice)
- 1 tablespoon smoked paprika (or regular)
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
- 10 to 15 sage leaves (optional)
- In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and add the onions and garlic. Cook until onions are tender.
- Pour in the pumpkin puree and vegetable broth (or beer). Mix. Pour in the can of whole tomatoes (with the juice). Mix again.
- Then add the kidney beans and corn kernels. Season with the paprika, black pepper, and salt.
- Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. You’ll want to use a spatula or mixing spoon to crush the whole tomatoes a bit. Keep them chunky, but try to crush each one a couple times to distribute evenly.
- Then lower the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 45 minutes. Again, stir occasionally.
- Add in the sage leaves (I rubbed mine a bit with my fingers to get the flavor out before dropping into the pot). Cook at a low simmer for another 15 minutes.
