Add 2 tablespoons of chicken bone broth with sliced zucchini. Saute until desired consistency. For best results, keep the zucchini more on the crunchy side. Add cooked chicken back to the pan with rest of broth. Continue to saute for about 2 minutes. Turn off heat, add the baby spinach. The heat will wilt the spinach.

Basic Sloppy Joes Ingredients (for all the proteins) 
Prepare the proteins first before adding all the ingredients
2 tablespoons of olive oil, coconut oil, or vegetable broth
1 additional cup of water or vegetable broth
1/2 or 1 chopped large onion (depending on the protein used, ground beef – large onion, other proteins – 1/2 onion and it depends on how much onion-y flavor you want)
1 medium carrot
4 minced garlic cloves or 2 tsp garlic powder(For picky eaters, put carrot, garlic, and onion in food processor and mince, these things can be hidden well)Salt/Pepper (optional)
2 cups of organic ketchup
1/8 cup dark molasses (if not have, use brown sugar)
2 to 3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar (can use what you have in house)
2 or 3 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce 

Pick your protein
1 lb of protein (grass fed ground beef, vegetarian crumbles, or 1 cup of green lentils)

  • For ground beef or vegetarian crumbles add – 1 can of pink beans, drained. If you want, put beans in with vegetables in processor. If your family likes beans, no need to process the beans. Brown the ground beef with onions in oil or broth until cooked. Add the vegetables with or without the beans and cook until translucent about 7 to 10 minutes.
  • For lentils, cook the lentils with oil or the broth, vegetables with or without the beans, cook until translucent about 7 to 10 minutes.  You will need to add broth or water to soften the lentils with the other ingredients. You may need more liquid because lentils absorb liquids quickly.
  • For the vegetarian crumbles, cook with oil or the broth, vegetables with or without the beans and cook until translucent about 7 to 10 minutes. Broth or water may need to be added to prevent sticking.

Add all the rest of the ingredients with the water or broth, mix well. Adjust the flavors, as needed. Simmer for 20 minutes until all the flavors are combined and cooked. For the lentils, cooking time can be up to 30/40 mins.

Honey Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Every year on Thanksgiving, I see my beloved Sweet Potatoes / Yams traditionally swimming in fattening things like butter, marshmallows, and brown sugar. Sorry, for the bluntness but I always think to myself, what a terrible way to ruin a perfect healthy food. This recipe I found on the Food Network with Chef Tyler Florence so I cannot take credit for this one. I was thrilled to see this recipe because it is Gluten Free and Vegan. It could be Paleo friendly too, if honey is on the Paleo list. I am still learning the Paleo way so this recipe may not be Paleo friendly. The sweet potatoes sweetened with just right amount of honey and the cinnamon really makes it wonderful. I love this recipe and it is definitely worth keeping.
