My kids LOVE sloppy joes, and with summer here, who wants to spend hours in the kitchen? This recipe is a great make-ahead meal, that will allow you to "heat and eat" in 15 minutes or less!

Life has been going well this week, I've gotten clearance from my doctor to resume workouts (THANK GOD!), and I'm clearing out my kitchen of all the junk foods that infiltrated my home.
My son started football this week, and my daughter is full into gymnastics/tumbling, and they are both on the same page with me in regards to getting clean, healthy foods into our home. At 13 and 9, they have a wisdom and knowledge of health and wellness that I didn't acquire until a few years ago. I'm beyond proud of them, and of myself for setting a good example for them to follow!
