Winter is here which means comfort food! Fortunately, there are some healthy options out there that pack the cozy but are not a complete doozy to your health. One of our favorites to savor in the colder months ahead is turkey chili (Winter White Chili). Not only is it flavorful and filling, but you will not feel guilty going back for seconds. It also makes a great lunch to pack from home the next day. Enjoy!
