Healthy Turkey Chili

I love food.  Eating is by far my favorite thing to do.  However, I also live at the beach and find myself in bikinis fairly often.  Because of this, I've managed to reach a compromise and try and cook healthy, guilt-free food.  Earlier this week, I made my first crock pot chili of autumn.  It's delicious, easy, and good for you! The most important thing is to check the sodium levels of all the groceries you're buying.  Just about everything has options where sodium isn't added.  If you aren't careful, your meal can turn into one big salt-fest and end up being rather unhealthy.

1 lb ground turkey
1 white onion, diced
2 (14 oz) no sodium added diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can no sodium tomato sauce
1/4 cup no sugar added ketchup or chili sauce (if you want it spicy!)
1/4 cup water
1 (15 oz) can dark red no sodium added kidney beans
1 packet Mrs. Dash's chili seasoning mix
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Brown ground turkey with chopped onion.  While they are browning, combine all other ingredients in your crock pot.  Stir them together.  When turkey and onion are browned, stir together in crock pot with other ingredients.  Cook all day on low or on high for 3-4 hours.  Top with shredded skim-milk cheddar cheese and greek yogurt.  (I promise, greek yogurt tastes exactly the same as sour cream!  You can't tell the difference!)
