Clean Eating Sloppy Joes


Clean Eating Sloppy Joes

Eating clean doesn’t mean that you have to give up all of  your favorite foods!  I’m always on the hunt for clean eating recipes that will not only satisfy my craving for these foods, but will also be acceptable to my husband who isn’t necessarily quite as enthusiastic about “that clean eating stuff” as he puts it.  Even though I’ve tried to explain it to him, he has the same misconception that many have… that it’s a diet.  Clean eating isn’t a “diet”…it’s about getting rid of the processed food and opting for fresh, natural ingredients instead.  It means that I cook a lot of things from scratch… but trust me when I tell you that I’m not spending hours in the kitchen!  I look for fast, family friendly recipes that everyone can enjoy.  I found this recipe on another coach’s clean eating blog and thought I would share with all of you!  Clean eating sloppy joes… a winner with both adults and kids!  Sloppy Joe… Sloppy Sloppy Joe… You’re singing it, aren’t you?!


1 lb Lean Ground Turkey
1 (15 oz) Can Organic Tomato Sauce
1/2 Cup Clean Ketchup
1 tbsp. Garlic Powder
1 tbsp. Onion Powder
1 Medium Green Pepper
1 Medium Red Bell Pepper
For the “Clean” Ketchup, I used Simply Heinz since it was my best option at my local small town grocery store.  It was on the bottom shelf and hard to see, but I found it!
Cook lean ground turkey in a large skillet.  Once meat is cooked, add all other ingredients and stir until well blended.
Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
That’s it!  Serve on a Whole Wheat Hamburger Bun with some veggies on the side!  I did an open-face sandwich and just used one slice of bread.  Served with a side of fresh cut green beans.
