Chili for Fall and for Fiber

One of the ways to stay on top of your bladder health is to consume enough fiber. A backed-up digestive tract can put pressure on your bladder, causing leakage when you’re not sure why. Since it’s the season of football games, chilly nights, and hearty food, you can add this chili recipe to this week’s menu. A crock pot and some sour cream and corn chips to finish and you’ve got a warm dinner for your family or friendswith hardly any work, and one that can benefit your health.
