Sloppy Joe made Clean

Love me some sloopy joes but unfortunately the kind you make from a can is loaded with some not so good stuff and most recipes that I found were well just about the same.  Then I came across this Sloppy Joe recipe and I did have to clean it up a bit but the result was well worth it.  My family loved it! 

Next time I make it I will be sure to take a picture, but this time I forgot. 

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound Ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, cook until browned and break up meat with a spoon ~ 3-5 minutes.  
2. Add onion and garlic to turkey and cook until onion is translucent.
3. Mix the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, and Worcestershire into the turkey mixture; season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, 3 to 5 minutes.  
4. Serve either on whole wheat rolls, buns, or flatbread.  

We had this for dinner tonight and I paired it with roasted root medley and zucchini sticks.  

If you try this recipe I would love to know your thoughts. Also if you have any kid friendly recipes to share please do so. I am always looking for my kiddos!! 

If you haven't guessed by now, it is very important to me what I put into my body and my family's bodies.  I do majority of the cooking around here.  Yes, not everyone was excited when I said I was making changes to the way we eat but I slowly incorporated the Clean Eating lifestyle.  Yes, the lifestyle - this is not some fad diet program that is here and gone tomorrow.  Clean eating is a term used for the way people use to eat a long time ago.  My body feels amazing now that I have adopted this lifestyle.  My husband has lost weight without working out.  Now do you believe me that eating the right foods are so very important for you especially if you are wanting to lose weight?
