Sometimes you just need a Sloppy Joe and the original version we all grew up with is definitely not in the low carb, keto family of eating and so I present to you: keto Sloppy Joes. 🙂
A traditional Sloppy Joe has a big white bun as well as ketchup and sugar in the sauce, all working against your low carb goals. I replace all of that here with some lower carb / keto options. You will use tomato paste instead of ketchup, a keto sweetener, and a touch of molasses to give the sauce some of its distinct musky flavor.
For the bread, I do recommend the keto 90 second bread (here), a single-serving microwave bread that does not completely replace the fluffy white bread bun of the Sloppy Joe of our childhood, but it gets us in the Sloppy Joe game.
For those times when you need a Sloppy Joe and you're keto.
In terms of keto eating, if you’ve missed the point that I am one of those “half of themselves” weight loss stories, you may want to poke around more and check out what I did. I combined the keto diet with intermittent fasting for some massive success. Do not miss the before and after photos!
