Super Sloppy Joe's
By Kim Galeaz
Comfort food can be good for you. You'll never miss the salt with all these extra spices and seasonings. Tomato sauce provides a boost of antioxidants vitamin A and vitamin C. For extra nutrients and fiber, serve Super Sloppy Joe's on whole-wheat or whole-grain buns instead of white refined buns.
