How To Make A Healthier Sloppy Joe: 5 Recipes

My Salt Lake City Avenues neighbor Sue is a great cook, artist, gardener, bicyclist, and all around wonderful friend. Sue and Bob grow a lot of their own food, help everyone who needs it, and are just good people. Sue brought me the Guinness Cake recipe after I tasted a sample, and the mushroom soup you can do in a slow cooker. Her latest is a brownie made with three kinds of chocolate, and as someone who is not crazy about chocolate, I can say these brought me into the fold.Texas residents like their sausages topped with chilli con carne vegetarian. There are hundreds of recipes for chili, so there are hundreds of different hot dogs. Some sprinkle shredded cheese and chopped onions on top of the chili. The result is a giant, and very filling, meal.A small bowl of Wendy's chili has a rather modest 200 calories - not bad. It also has a fairly reasonable fat chilli con carne of six grams - two of which are saturated. The real problem is the sodium. A single, small serving of Wendy's chili has an eye-popping 875 milligrams of sodium. Eat three bowls of it and you've already gone over the amount that's recommended for the entire day. It is an excellent source of protein with seventeen grams in a single serving and, because of the beans, it's a good source of soluble fiber. Other than being a source of vitamin A and iron, it's rather weak in the nutritional department.What are the secret ingredients? It all begins with making a homemade beef broth. I make this by using a slow cooker and a roast beef. I use the leftover water and roast beef in my stew. I then cut up some carrots, celery, and potatoes. Add some thyme, basil, salt, and pepper. Cook for awhile and thicken with cornstarch and water. The combination of those ingredients makes a perfect homemade beef stew recipe.Make sure to add twice as much water to the amount of dry ingredients. You must keep the pot only half full while you allow it to boil to ensure that it will not boil over.Whole Wheat Bread: It used to be believed that bread of any type was bad for you, but whole wheat bread disproves that. Whole wheat has a nice amount of nutrients and good carbs that you need to keep your energy levels stable. Try making a meal out of lean hamburger meat mixed with whole wheat pasta on a chilli con carne slow cooker whole wheat bun.
