One Pot Healthy Turkey Chili Mac

One Pot Healthy Turkey Chili Mac | Boys Ahoy

It’s Thanksgiving week! The boys have the whole week off from school so we’re in Arizona spending the holiday with my brother and his family. I haven’t cooked a lick of Thanksgiving food this year. Not even a real pie (these mini pies don’t really count, even though they are cute + fun!)

Soooo, sorry I didn’t bring you anything new for ya. But if you’re looking for a few of my favorites you should definitely make these maple whipped sweet potatoes, this pumpkin cream pudding pie, or these coconut cream pie bars.

I do have a healthy, hearty dinner for you though. For any night this week you just don’t know what to make, or don’t want to eat Thanksgiving leftovers. 

One Pot Healthy Turkey Chili Mac | Boys Ahoy

Seriously hearty, healthy delicous turkey chili mac.  Full of ground turkey, bell pepper, tomato, kidney beans, and whole wheat macaroni noodles. 

Topped with all the cheese your heart can handle! Made in one pot and ready in thirty minutes!

Riding with Guardian Bikes

Last weekend one of the Co-founders, Kyle, of the newly launched Guardian Bikes came down from LA to let Owen test out one of their bikes! 

Guardian Bikes makes the world’s safest bikes for kids! They want kids to be confident riders by creating safe, fun bikes for them to ride. Owen is definitley our cautious one, so when I told him they make super safe bikes, his confidence sky-rocketed and he couldn’t wait to ride.

Safest Bike for Kids - the Guardian Bike

You can read more about their mission, how they build safer bikes, and about their SureStop brake technology specifically designed with kids in mind, to prevent head-over-handlebar accidents on the website!

Kyle (co-founder) was so incredibly nice and so great to work with. He and his girlfriend Megan brought the boys cookies, and even entertained the littler ones while we watched Owen ride and shot some video:) 

We love getting to work with good people behind great companies, especially when they have our kiddos’ safety in mind!  Owen’s Christmas wish list just grew by one, shiny new Gaurdian Bike :)
