Vegan Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

Oh my heavens I am in LOVE with these Vegan Sloppy Joe's.  They are my new favorite go to.  They are unbelievably tasty.  In fact, I made them and traditional sloppy joes for the meat eaters in my family, and my husband preferred the Vegan variety.  What I love is that they are NOT made with those processed fake meat alternatives....which I do not believe are healthy.   No, these are a perfect Builder food.

I eat them with my Almond Flour Crackers instead of bread or a bun and of course, pair the combo with Eliminators for Functional Balance. 

Best yet?  They contain NO ingredients in which you would need to worry about consistent refrigeration, so they make a perfect take to work lunch!
