Whole30 Sloppy Joe Bowls

I absolutely love re-creating childhood favorites and giving them a Whole30/real food spin Sloppy Joes used to be one of my favorite things when I was little the sweet and savory combination of heart meat and sauce served on a nice soft bun was just so good turns out it’s still pretty good when you remove the crap ingredients and serve it with some nutrient dense veggies too I like this version because it uses ingredients that you most likely already have in your fridge and pantry.

You can feel free to get creative with these Whole30 Sloppy Joe Bowls serve them like I did here with some spaghetti squash and roasted broccoli or you can omit the squash or add zoodles for Keto. You can also serve this over regular or gluten free pasta but obviously it will no longer be Whole30 friendly. Basically what I’m saying is that you can choose your own adventure.

This is my tried and true method for making spaghetti squash in the oven it always turned out perfect without being overcooked or mushy you can use an Instant Pot or another method if you want totally up to you.

I cut the squash in half horizontally not long ways as it’s traditionally cut and scoop out the seeds. Place cut side down on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 400 for 35 minutes.

HOW DO I MAKE THE BROCCOLI?

For the broccoli, I tossed 16 oz of florets with 1 tbsp olive oil + some sea salt and pepper: Use your fingertips to rub the oil into the florets: Spread out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and roast at 415 for 12 minutes. 

WHERE SHOULD I GET MY MEAT?

Lastly if you are looking for the best quality grass fed beef I love getting mine from Butcher Box it’s a meat delivery service where you can choose a combination of wild caught salmon, grass fed beef, heritage breed pork and organic chicken to be delivered to your doorstep makes life much easier for this busy mama.

It’s so important to look for quality beef and meat in general we are what we eat we don’t want to be eating meat from cows that have been pumped with hormones and fed an unhealthy diet.
