Slow Cooker Sloppy Joe Bowl. Easy and low carb! Perfect after weight loss surgery

Growing up I did not like sloppy joes. When someone in the family mentioned the word “Manwhich” I’d cringe. While I still cringe at that word, my mind has opened up to the possibilities of a good sloppy joe recipe.

However, we traditionally put this meat mixture on a bun right?? I served mine with green beans instead and next time would even put it as a sauce over steamed veggies. It’s really more of a sloppy joe bowl than a traditional sloppy joe.

If you’ve had weight loss surgery, remember to keep your mixture nice and thick. A soupy mixture would leave your stomach quickly and you’re like to feel hungry or shaky sooner. Instead, use a slotted spoon to remove the mixture from your slow cooker (yes, that is the same thing as a Crockpot®)

  1. @Cora great question. Serving sizes are always “traditional” because bariatric sizes differ greatly. This will make 3 ounce servings, four total servings.

  2. Hi Lisa!
    This particular recipe has an estimated 208 calories per serving. My style of coaching for bariatric weight loss is not calorie based so I share the protein, carbs and fat but not calorie count. I recommend journaling in Baritastic and then looking at the ratio of protein:carbs:fat. I have a post that talks a little more about calories (https://www.bariatricfoodcoach.com/i-quit-counting-calories-and-finally-lost-weight/) and another one that talks more about macros (https://www.bariatricfoodcoach.com/most-asked-weight-loss-surgery-questions/). For patients that are more calorie based you can add them to Baritastic or MyFitnessPal has an easy way to copy and paste a URL into their recipe tracker for full nutrition panels.
    Sorry for the longer answer but wanted to explain!

    Steph
