Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground turkey ( are you starting to notice a trend? NO BEEF)
1 can Tomato Sauce ( READ THE LABEL does it have more than just tomatoes and herbs in it? if so put it back)
1-2 tsp Garlic Powder
1-2 Chili Powder
1/4c Chopped Onion
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
Opt( diced peppers, jalepenos)
Brown ground turkey in a skillet on medium heat. Add onions cook a minute or so until softened(not mushed) add tomato sauce and other ingredients. Turn heat down and cover for 5 minutes.
Serve on 100% Whole Wheat Buns( READ THE LABEL: Do they contain high fructose corn syrup? if so put them back!)

Califlower Faux Mashed Potatoes
1 head of steamed califlower
salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. If you want, you can add milk and a little bit of butter, but I thought it tasted ok with out. Don't get carried away with it! This is a healthy food. You will be surprised by the taste it is yummy!

Just by making the sloppy joes on my own with out the canned manwich sauce it saves a whole lot of sodium, sugar, and high fructose corn syrup! That crap is in everything.
