Keto Sloppy Joes
My kids love this sweet and tangy meaty dinner. They seem to love the messiness that also comes along with this meal. Perhaps they feel like it gives them permission to be messy—almost like you need to act messy—to eat this meal properly. Perhaps it’s a bit liberating in a way.
In any meat sauce and especially sloppy joes, I used to LOVE hiding veggies. Nowadays my kids know all my tricks and have grown accustomed to eating a wide variety of veggies so the need to hide veggies is no longer a requirement. But I remember the earlier years of training these maturing pallets. I am of the philosophy that a child’s immune system and metabolic strength develops early and negotiating veggies over carbs is NOT an option in our household. We talk about what things on their plates are most important, “non-negotiables” that they must eat. I know it sounds drill sergeant-ish, but I believe they will be better from it in the future.
If you are at the stage of hiding veggies, then hide away mama! Below is how I still make it. My kids know what’s in it now, but back then I’d just tell them it was ground beef. They ate it and I was happy.
