Yes fam, I did. My Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers recipe is Whole30 approved, paleo friendly, and keto baby. I bet I just blew your mind, because when I was coming up with this flavor monster… mind. blown.

Here is the other thing. Some of you maybe cooking for a family and are worried, how the heck am I going to feed my children a sloppy joe from a pepper vessel?! Well I got you. Reserve some of your sloppy mix and slap it on a bun. Manwich honestly has nothing on a homemade touch to an old classic. But you be the judge, don’t just take my word for it.

Another reason to hop on the healthy sloppy joe train (yes I just made that a thing) is make one for dinner and bada boom put that other puppy in a tupperware and hello tomorrow’s lunch. Would you believe that the flavors just get better with overnight?!
