Sloppy Goodness .... Healthy Sloppy Joe Mac (FMD Recipe)

On my way back to the healthy me I went back to trying the Fast Metabolism Diet.  Trying to make it easy on me for dinners I found recipes the boys would like to (well fingers crossed they would).  This one was a little spicy but 3 out of 4 of us enjoyed it.

This recipe was a for Healthy Chili Mac / Sloppy Joe so I just called it a Sloppy Joe Mac.  It was pretty easy to make and tasty.


Phases 1 and 3
Serves 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 cups tomato sauce (sugar-free and organic — or homemade)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons tamari
1 1/4 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
3/8 teaspoon powdered stevia
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
For Sloppy Joes:
2 sprouted grain buns, split
For Chili Mac:
Cooked quinoa-kamut macaroni (4 cups for Phase 1 or 2 cups for Phase 3).  You could also use brown-rice pasta for Phase 1.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the beef, onions, and green peppers together, stirring until the beef is crumbled and browned. Stir in the remaining ingredients, and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
For Sloppy Joes:
Divide the beef mixture among the bun halves and serve open-faced. Top with pickles, raw onions, and/or lettuce
For Chili Mac:
Stir the cooked macaroni into the beef mixture and serve.
ALEXIS NOTES: I used ground Turkey instead of beef and Quinoa Noodles (found in the organic/gluten free section at most supermarkets).
