Sorry I have been missing in action everyone but I have been swamped with stuff all relating to the cookbooks.  Good news is we are about a month away from the launch of the e-cookbook which I’m very excited about.  I have been busy working with Heidi from Foodie Crush on everything and I’m soooooo excited to finally share what we have been working on behind the scenes here.  Stay tuned to more details as we get a little closer.  And I may share some sneak peak pictures as we get closer too so stay tuned.  If you follow me on Instagram (multiplydelicious) than you may have already seen some sneak peak photo’s of both cookbooks.  Find me so you can see or just so you can see a sneak peak into my crazy crossfit, paleo, mommy life.

Last week I spent a lot of time on my Facebook page answering your questions.  I had a lot of fun doing that, thank you to those of you who had questions.  After the deadlines are behind me I hope to do that more often.  I asked a question today on the facebook page because I’m debating re-branding the site.  I have gone back and forth about if with the re-branding I change the name of the site.  Thoughts?  Yes….No?  You are probably asking why, right?  Well when I started Multiply Delicious I wasn’t Paleo by any means but as you all know I am now and it’s changed my life.  So much so that I want to help others on their Paleo journey.  Hence the reason why I got my Holistic Nutrition Certification.  I want to grow the site and focus it more towards paleo seasonal whole foods….which has me considering change the name a little to help in describing the new “brand”.  I have received great feedback on the facebook page but if you don’t follow me there (you should, ha) then let me know what you think in the comments below.  Do I keep Multiply Delicious or is a new name in need?  Or perhaps shorten Multiply Delicious to MD?  As you can tell I’m torn about this and need your help!  After all you are the readers.

Now let’s talk about chili!!!  It’s been rainy and gray here in Charlotte and I was in need of some comfort food in the form of some spicy chili.  To be honest I haven’t made chili since going Paleo.  When I think of chili I think of the kind before I went Paleo that had a whole bunch of beans.  As you know, beans are a no no with a Paleo lifestyle.  Wanting to keep the same texture beans provide with chili I decided to add some vegetables like zucchini, carrots, and sweet potatoes.  Now you can totally play around with the vegetables you like but these were in my kitchen and I just so happen to think they rocked in this chili, but again I’ll leave that up to you guys on what veggie you want to throw in.  I highly recommend topping the chili with some diced avocado!  The avocado takes it to a whole new level.

Enjoy the chili everyone!  And let me know about your thoughts on the name.

    I have made many a paleo chili and seriously this was so delicious! Thank you!

    I am not sure about changing the name, but for what it’s worth I do not think you should use MD. When I hear “MD” I immediately think of a doctor. If I was new to your site and I saw MD, I might think that you were representing a professional doctorate opinion. Since you aren’t a doctor, I don’t think it’s the best choice, even though you obviously wouldn’t be purposely trying to misrepresent. Good luck on your decision!

    This is yet another awesome recipe! I stumbled upon your site a few months ago when I went Paleo too and I can honestly say yours is the one I use the most when planning my weekly meals. I’ve made so many of your dishes and all have been really fantastic! My husband has loved everything too and doesn’t complain at all when I make these healthy dinners. Thank you and good luck with the cookbook!! Can’t wait to buy it! PS- I think you should stick with multiply delicious but maybe add a tagline that incorporates your paleo philosophy.

    This really is a really good chili recipe. I loved the vegies made up for lack of beans. I will make this again for sure. My hubby loved it too.

  13. Adrienne says:

    This looks great. I’ve had a tough time finding the perfect paleo chili. I often feel like I’m just eating a bowl of ground beef. Cutting it with sweet potatoes, zucchini and carrots sounds like a perfect way to add variety!

  15. Liz P says:

    Wow! This was really good. But it was so spicy for us, I think it was the type of chili powder I used. We’ll definitely be making this again, but with less chili powder. And if anyone has any idea on how to tame the spice in the batch I just made, I would be so grateful.

    Just moved out of Charlotte, great city!

    This recipe sounds great and I’ll be trying it out this weekend.

  17. Tara says:

    This has become a staple in my house. A paleo meal the WHOLE family loves! Thank you for posting! I find that I like my sweet potatoes a little more cooked… so I let it simmer closer to 45-60 min. Other than that I follow it exactly as is!

  18. Justine says:

    I’m a paleo newbie, and a blogging newbie, I cannot wait to try this recipie! I’ll be sure to link to your page! I can respect how much work it is. I thought my website would be about cupcakes and painting, but I’m angry at the food industry and starting my own version of whole30 Sunday to shed the pounds that all that flour, sugar, and other junk has helped me pack on. Chilli is my fav. Fall/winter comfort food, and I loveee veggies, so I’m thinking this could only be amazing! Thank you for sharing!

    How spicy does this chili turn out? Want to make this, this week. My 4 year old daughter loves chili, but just want to make sure it isnt too spicy for her taste!
