Making sloppy joes used to be hard, but with my easy whole30 recipe for Paleo Sloppy Joes, everyone eats happy and healthy!
Mathlete loves sloppy joes. Besides the one time I made them with turkey instead of beef, I don’t think I have ever gone wrong making sloppy joes for him. Of course, I am trying to stick to more paleo dishes so I needed to find a way to bridge the gap between Mathlete’s favorite and something I could eat. The result are these amazing Paleo Sloppy Joes.
Of course, a sloppy joe by definition would include a bun which would be totally un-paleo. I still make Mathlete’s with a bun but put mine on top of crispy white sweet potato slices for the perfect meal. I use this Paleo Sloppy Joes recipe for my whole30 meal plan during the week!
