I feel like fall came in fast...cool weather and everything! To celebrate the first day of fall yesterday I wanted to make a festive dinner, and what is more festive than pumpkins and chili? This recipe is super easy to throw in the slow cooker and as a bonus your house smells delicious all day. The pumpkin flavor is mild, the spice is there but not in your face, and all of the other vegetables paired with the chicken makes for a healthy, well rounded, hearty yet light and refreshing, bowl of chili! If you are like me and can't find pumpkin in the grocery stores, have no fear, you can buy pumpkin baby food in the little jars and it works just as well :)
Total Time: 15 minutes to prep + (6 hours in slow cooker)

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
