Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Slow Cooker Vegetarian Sloppy Joes.  Where are my veggies?

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups (300 ml) uncooked green lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 1 white onion, finely diced
  • 1 red pepper, finely diced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (22.5 ml) chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 ml) cayenne pepper
  • 1 15-ounce (435 grams) can tomato sauce
  • 1 15-ounce (435 grams) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) water, plus more if necessary
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) organic ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 spaghetti squash, washed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

In a large slow cooker, combine  all ingredients except spaghetti squash. Stir.

Cut the washed spaghetti squash in half around the middle and scoop out the seeds. Place the squash halves cut-side down in the slow cooker right on top of the lentils. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until squash is tender and lentils are cooked completely. If the lentils seem dry, stir in additional water until it reaches a nice, thick consistency.

Remove spaghetti squash and shred inside with a fork. Divide among bowls and add lentil sloppy joe topping. Sprinkle with cheese, if desired.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
