These sloppy joe meal prep bowls are perfect for making over the weekend to have lunch for the week! This recipe is paleo, and can easily be made whole30 and AIP.



For the sloppy joe 

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup nomato sauce for AIP/tomato sauce for non AIP
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (omit for whole30)
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 2 tbsp green onion, sliced

For the meal prep bowls

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, diced
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 3 cups broccoli, steamed and lightly salted


For the sloppy joe

  1. Add the ground beef and diced onion to a large skillet. Using a wooden spoon to crumble the beef, cook until the beef is browned. Drain some of the excess fat.
  2. Stir together the tomato sauce, water, coconut aminos, coconut sugar, and seasonings (reserving the green onion) and add to the skillet. Stir well to coat and bring to a low simmer. Allow to simmer on low for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Top with green onion and divide between 4 meal prep bowls.

For the meal prep bowls

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the sweet potato, coat with avocado oil, and season. Toss to combine.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, flipping halfway through, or until the sweet potatoes are cooked to your liking.
  3. Divide the sweet potato and steamed broccoli among the meal prep bowls.
