“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Won’t you be, won’t you be, please won’t you please be… my neighbor?” -Fred Rogers
Hello neighbors. Today I want to share a recipe for low carb Sloppy Joes, but first I want to talk about some local Pittsburgh excitement.
A Mister Rogers biopic just started shooting in Pittsburgh and I could not be more excited about it.
The first image was just released of Tom Hanks in costume as Mister Rogers. I cannot think of a better actor to play the mild mannered kid’s television star. It’s a match made in heaven.
Kind of like the recipe that I am about to share.
I’ve paired Sloppy Joe meat with low carb Psyllium Husk buns and the result is a match made in low carb heaven. It’s just as messy and meaty as the original, but this low carb version has only 6g net carb per sandwich. It’s really good.
Ok neighbor, time for me to put on my sweater, change into my sneakers and high tail it out of here.
