Lentil Sweet Potato Chili

Winter has made an early arrival this year with all of this RAIN! Rain makes perfect eating weather and partner that with all that Easter chocolate, well we're ready for some nourishing veggies to get our tummies back on track again. 

Slow cooker season is one of my favourite seasons. Not only does it make for some easy cooking, the smell of cooking veggies and spices all day leaves your mouth watering! Plus slow cooker meals usually yield a big batch so it saves you from cooking the next day as well. 

This lentil sweet potato recipe is yummy, filling and loaded with nutrients. Enjoy!
