Hey Everybody! I came across a recipe for a light Sloppy Joe! If you were anything like me, growing up we always made Sloppy Joy from a can–get some ground meat and add sauce right?? This right here is “taste good“. It is packed with flavor and on top of that, are getting more nutrients. The variety of vegetables offers more color to your plate! Sometimes making changes with your kids can take time, but my husband and I loved these. Remember, Small Steps Equals BIG Change!! Take small steps to add more veggies to your favorite dishes and be a great way to start!!

The first thing you want to do is brown your meat, it can be chicken or turkey. I chose ground chicken. Guess what?? If you want to go meatless, omit the meat and just do a veggie Sloppy Joe. I did season meat with lite salt and garlic powder.

 

Next, add shredded carrot, chopped spinach(I did end up chopping after taking this picture. Stir together.
