Dr. Tracy’s Healthy Autumn Chili

  • by

Project WE Society is designed to be a place of for you to gain value on all of the various levels of your wellness.  This includes your physical wellness supported by the foods that we eat. Everyone loves food, right?  But, sometimes, we aren’t eating the right foods to support out bodies properly.  More and more people are turning to plant based diets, for a variety of reasons (we won’t go into all of the details of the meat industry just yet!)

This September, our friend, Dr. Amanda Tracy, ND (Naturopathic Doctor) of Advanced Health & Wellness in Andover, MA has shared a delish recipe with us to share with our Project WE Society group!  Trust me, she has really opened my own, previously Vegan intimidated, eyes as to all the delicious meals that can be enjoyed as a Vegan dish.  Enjoy the recipe and be sure to read more about Dr. Tracy & the great work that she does below.
