Recently, one of our incredible member’s provided us with a recipe that is not only delicious, but nutritious. He mentioned he was having trouble with getting his younger son to eat his vegetables. However, after coming up with his healthy sloppy joe recipe, fulfilling that micronutrient need was a breeze.

In honor of our Sunday food prep rituals, we wanted to share this recipe as a good source for Sunday meal prep and even a source for freezer meals.  We are certain this is a recipe your family will love, and can even help carry you through the week thanks to the extra portions.
