I remember my mom making sloppy joes as a kid. I loved it. I knew I could make a mess at the dinner table and I wasn’t going to get in trouble. I mean, the name of dinner said “sloppy” how much better could it get for a kid??

This version of sloppy joes is more paleo based and it has the benefit of pure essential oils for added bonus!

I feel you’ll scarf this down just as much as you did a regular sloppy joe, without your body feeling sloppy. Your kids will love it too!

Ingredients:

  1. 4 sweet potatoes (pre-bake these in the oven)
  2. 1/2 yellow onion, chopped small
  3. 1 clove of garlic, minced
  4. 3 celery stalks, chopped
  5. 2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef (or feel free to substitute with ground turkey or chicken)
  6. 1 Tablespoon chili powder
  7. 1-2 drops of doTERRA Cumin essential oil
  8. 1 red pepper, chopped
  9. 1 green pepper, chopped
  10. 1 can of diced tomatoes (14-20 oz), do not drain
  11. 1 can of tomato paste (6 oz)
