Post Natal Recovery Food - Chilli Con Carne

By Angela Jameson on 8 September 2020

This lovely recipe was brought to you by a lovely colleague of mine who specialises in Nutrition for pregnancy and post natal recovery. She has shared with me a few recipes. Try and plan your week of food so you avoid the sugar highs and lows, starting with a breakfast of soaked oats overnight is a great way to start the day and beat the tiredness of feeding and being up through the night! Get organised and put these onto your next shopping list.


Simply add the following ingredients to your slow cooker, stir, turn your slow cooker on to high and leave for 4-5 hours. 


1 x packet of beef mince

2 x onions (chopped)

4 x cloves of garlic (minced)

2 x teaspoon ground cumin 

2 x teaspoons all-spice

1 x teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 x teaspoon dried chili flakes (add more or less as needed to suit taste)

2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes

2 x tablespoons of tomato ketchup

3 x tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 x tablespoon sugar (any kind)

1 x 400g tin of red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)

1 x teaspoon of cocoa powder 

Serve with rice, sour cream and grated cheese

It is also easy to make a vegetarian version of this chili by adding your choice of tinned beans in place of the mince.
