Train Like An Olympian

Trey Hardee shares his fitness formula, including nutrition and training tips.

Makes six servings

2 cups quinoa
3 cups organic chicken broth
1 diced red onion
1 pound organic ground bison
2 diced green peppers
2 tablespoons minced garlic
15 ounces precooked kidney beans
1/2 cup corn
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons coriander

Add quinoa and chicken broth to a small pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. While quinoa is cooking, combine red onion and bison meat in a large skillet. Then cook for 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring often. Add peppers, garlic, kidney beans, corn, chili powder, cumin, and coriander. Cook on medium-low until the bison is heated through and the peppers are tender. Season chili to taste with salt and pepper, then mix with quinoa and serve.
