Some foods are convenient but not as healthy as they could be.

Others are good for you, but leave a lot to be desired when it comes to taste.

Here’s a recipe that is good for your heart and tastes good as well. Plus, it can be made in your truck’s slow cooker.

Here’s what you need:

2 lb. top round or beef loin roast, cut into large chunks
1 large onion, any color, chopped
28 oz. canned, low-sodium tomato purée
1 Tbsp. salt-free chili powder
1 tsp. salt-free Italian spice blend OR
1 Tbsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. garlic powder or onion powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper

Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of your slow cooker and cook until beef is tender, about 8 to 10 hours on the low setting or 4 to 5 hours on high setting.

Serves six.
