3 weeks into my second round of Whole30! It’s going really well, a lot easier this time. My first round, a lot of time and energy was spent playing the “Can I eat this?” game. It was a lot of work meal planning, looking at labels, and googling. The second time around, I have a better understanding already of what I’m eating and what I’m avoiding so it’s been a lot less time consuming.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t even thought about sloppy joes since elementary school, which is probably the last time my mom made them for dinner. It’s just not something that’s ever been in my rotation of regular meals. It’s not exactly a glamorous meal, or very pretty. And, what’s the point of dinner if it isn’t pretty enough to take a picture of?
My good friend Bethany has an awesome food diary on her instagram to showcase her meals while losing weight. She always has something super tasty and lots of really great healthy inspiration on there. And, a couple months ago she was having sloppy joes with her boys. Sloppy joes have been on my mind every since. Something about it being so cold out, I’ve been craving comfort food so I decided to try my hand at making sloppy joes into a Whole30 recipe.
Note: I used russet potatoes because that’s what I had on hand, while they are Whole30 compliant, it only makes them paleo-ish, but using sweet potatoes or yams would take care of that problem and be phenomenal!
What’s your favorite comfort food?
