This classic culinary specialty of Nice, France is not only a winner in the movie, but it is also a winner if you are trying to watch you weight! Served traditionally as a side dish, one serving of this recipe is 100 calories. We recommend pairing it with pasta, rice or bread to be more filling if you’d like it as a main course.

Sloppy Joes is one of my favorite go-to meals when I’m not really sure what I want to make for dinner or I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Partner the dish with the correct seasonal sides and it becomes the perfect entrée year round. For fall, my go-to sides are sweet potato fries and roasted corn.
