When meal planning, I often have a theme for each night. Meat Monday, Taco Tuesday, Waffle Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, Fun Friday…

I like to prep and cook meat Sunday night, but if not Sunday, then for sure I prep something on Monday. I will be sure to cook a meat that will likely be leftover for another night of the week. Thursday’s are often leftover night (aka Throwback Thursday). So this is when the leftover meat shows up again in a different meal.

This week Sloppy Joes are on the menu. I will cook up a double batch of this recipe. We will eat half tonight as sandwiches. Then what is leftover will either be eaten on salads or in crunch wraps later in the week.

We rarely eat out, cooking in for most of our meals. However, I am just like the next busy gal. I don’t have hours to spend in the kitchen each and everyday. Some of these little steps of planning and preparation save me tons of time. I feel like many would be shocked at how little time I am actually cooking each week.

This recipe is a lower carb version of Sloppy Joes, but it is just as delicious! Sloppy Joes are a family favorite around here. When my husband started eating lower carb, I set out to recreate our favorite recipe to make it more macro-friendly to meet his nutritional goals.
