If you are a new THM, "E Meals" can seem a bit... uh... "Terrifying"!
When I first came to Trim Healthy Mama, E meals were not so easy to figure out. Having come from years of "low-carb" dieting, the idea of intentionally creating a meal that revolved around protein and carbs (shudder!) made my heart race, my palms sweaty, and my knees weak!
Ok, so while that may be a tad melodramatic, perhaps you can relate?
For those struggling with the addition of carbs, please let me reassure you... There is no need to fear healthy, slow-burning carbs! Your body is designed to use them, and they are necessary (I repeat, they are NECESSARY) for good health!
While this meal takes a bit of work, you will find the preparation quick and relatively simple - The luxury of a crock pot meal is delightful... but this can easily be made in a cast iron Dutch oven (changes to cooking time, of course) and I often make a similar dish in my cast iron skillet... but let's address this Crock-Pot version for today!
