Low-carb Chili

Look at my lovely pot of vegetables- they became my chili for lunch a couple of weeks ago.
Low-Carb Chili (~5 1c servings)
1 c sweet onion, chunked
2 red bell peppers, chunked
2 yellow bell peppers, chunked
1 c green beans, cut in half
2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
2 fresh ripe large tomatoes, chopped
1 lb ground turkey
1 tsp cumin
3 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 crushed dried chipotle pepper (or you can use Tabasco's Chipotle seasoning)
Saute sweet onion with garlic in warmed coconut oil in deep soup pot or saute pan. Add spices. Heat through and then add turkey. Cook turkey through and then add tomatoes, cover and simmer to soften tomatoes. Add the rest of the vegetables until just tender.
Divide into lunch size portions in individual containers, freeze for your clean-eating week ahead.

Fresh Today: Meals and Training
600- 6 egg whites, 2 large mushrooms, 1/4 red bell pepper omlette, 1/8c creamy rice cereal, 2Tbsp ground flax seed, 2Tbsp whole salba, 1 tsp coconut oil, 2c mate tea, 2 Tbsp raisins, cinnamon
Mid-morning snack- 1/2c kitcheree

Mid-afternoon snack- 1/2c 1% cottage cheese, 6oz fresh organic carrots (cut into chunks for finger food)
Supper- Spinach, mushroom & mustard stuffed chicken breast, roasted brussel sprouts with balsamic vinegar
Lots of water throughout the day- I've been struggling with an allergic reaction for the last 2 weeks, even been to the doctor for it, but it hasn't cleared up and we have no idea what is causing it. I'm trying to flush my system with good old fresh water to hopefully rid myself of the hives.

What lotion do you use to keep your body moisturized?
Lubriderm was recommended by my doctor, but has just resulted in more hives.
