Shredded Meat

It's hard to think of a food that's more versatile than shredded meat. With chicken breast, you can toss it with mayonnaise and veggies for classic chicken salad, sauce it up with buffalo sauce for sandwiches and wraps, throw it into stir fries or pasta dishes. It's a great source of lean protein, but of course, chicken isn't the only delicious meat that can be used in myriad ways. Pulled pork is ideal for all things Tex-Mex (tacos, burritos, salads, enchiladas), in BBQ sandwiches or simply served on its own with your favorite sauce. Shredded beef serves the same purpose and can also be used to make ragu for pasta or substituted for shaved meat in French dip sandwiches.
