Is there anything more quintessentially fall than a pot of chili simmering on the stove? Of course you can enjoy chili any time of year, though the season of cooler temperatures, football games, and tailgating make this warming, filling meal hit the spot.

Chili fans will rejoice at this news: this dish is one that’s easy to fit in with Slimming World’s healthy eating plan, called Food Optimizing. That’s because chili ingredients like veggies, lean meat, beans, and rice—all things you can find at any grocery store—are Free Foods on our Food Optimizing plan. Free Foods are foods you can eat as much of as you like, without any weighing, counting, or measuring.

Taste for yourself how good our Food Optimizing chili recipes are! We promise when you feed these to a hungry crowd, no one will guess they’re made lighter and will help your weight loss.

Beef chili – this classic chili is a regular in many a Slimming World member’s meal rotation.

Black-eyed pea and vegetable chili bowl – this one’s chock-full of veggies and black-eyed peas for extra-filling fiber.

Chili and potato pie – think of this like a shepherd’s pie, with chili as the filling—and the great news is, potatoes are a Free Food with Food Optimizing, too.
