Forks and knives can be overrated sometimes even when you want healthy dining. To satisfy my craving for finger foods and stay with a healthy diet, I played around with the traditional beef sloppy joe recipe and used ground turkey meat as the substitute. Inside the whole wheat pita bread, I also added pitted olives, plain non-fat yogurt as the dressing, chopped scallions, and hot sauce to kick up a notch, as Emeril would say on his show. On the side, I boiled some asparagus and placed a handful of alfalfa sprouts to have some crispy taste ( you may go ahead and jam that handful of alfalfa sprouts into the pita bread as to make the food sloppier if it is not already). What a great way to munch on a childhood favorite while staying healthy without adding the extra saturated fats and LDL (bad) cholesterol from red meat.
So Sloppy and Healthy
