As always, our goal at CalmHealthySexy is to help married women live calmer, healthier and sexier lives. A major step toward that goal is to eat healthy, real food and avoid processed food most of the time. The trick, though, is to do it without spending all of your money at the grocery store or all of your time in the kitchen – neither of which promotes a calm and sexy life! This recipe, Tex-Mex Shredded Beef, is an easy and healthy family dinner that helps me avoid both those pitfalls. I take 5 minutes to put it together in the morning, let it cook all day in a large Crockpot, and shred it when I get home from work. It couldn’t be easier. In addition, I can serve it several ways – in shredded beef tacos, on whole wheat rolls, or with sides such as brown rice, spicy beans or salad – and everyone in my family likes it. Plus it makes a lot, so we have plenty for lunches or a second meal. It’s a winner all the way around.
