Sloppy Joes

  • 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 1 lb grassfed ground beef
  • ½ red onion diced
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • cup compliant tomato or marinara sauce I like Rao's Homemade
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp dijon or yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper

Spaghetti Squash

  • 1 large spaghetti squash


  • 1 16 oz package broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt


Spaghetti Squash

  • Preheat oven to 400. Cut a large spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Place cut side down on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake at for 35 minutes. Use a fork to remove the spaghetti strands and serve with the Sloppy Joe mixture and broccoli.

Sloppy Joes

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in onion and garlic. Saute for 5-7 minutes until softened. Add in ground beef and stir until browned and cooked through, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in remaining Sloppy Joe ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until ready to serve.

Roasted Broccoli

  • Mix the florets, oil, and salt well with your hands. Spread out evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and add to the oven when the squash has about 13-14 minutes left. Serve with the Sloppy Joe mixture and squash! Enjoy!
