Sloppy Joes are a family favorite at my house. My mom used to make the best Sloppy Joes on the street. Kids always wanted to eat at my house. When my mom started following McDougall and committing to a plant-based life, cooking healthy was much more difficult back then. Today, cooking healthy is easy, and fortunately we have a lot of great people who share their recipes and wisdom to inspire us to cook healthier, eat better, and teach our children how to eat healthy and responsibly.

In order to please the whole family and cook healthy, I try to make dishes my family loves. Making food with a variety of healthy foods while maintaining taste is easily attained. In order to enjoy what we eat, we don’t have to sacrifice the foods we love. Instead, we can adapt our favorite unhealthy food by transforming them into healthy choices.

I use my crock pot a lot when we are busy and I need to be able to walk away from the kitchen. Sloppy Joes in the crock pot is easy and requires little to no effort. You literally throw it together and walk away.

We eat our sloppy Joes open faced; that way you get more delicious filling, and its easier to eat with a fork. The kids prefer theirs hand-held and messy.
