Sweet and Spicy Sloppy Joes

I have gotten alot of complaints that eating Paleo is expensive. Well, yes buying fresh fruit and vegis and quality meat is more expensive than loading up on the cheap eats like mac n cheese, twinkies, and ramen noodles. This is part of the reason for the obesity problem in America. Statistics show that obesity is more prevalent in lower income areas. So, I admit, I don't buy all my food at whole foods and the farmer markets. I hit Walmart and Food for Less and would shop at Sams and Costco if I had the membership cards. I think it just takes a little time and education to figure out where you can get the best bang for your buck. So today - Walmart products rule as I make Sweet and Spicy Sloppy Joes in the crockpot. What is your opinion on the quality vs. value controversy?

Sweet and Spicy Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground turkey (Purdue white meat on sale)
1 jar Calavo brand Salsa Lisa (sweet pineapple ginger salsa)
1 can tomato sauce
2 Tbspn apple cider vinegar
garam masala

Brown the meat over med high heat and season with salt and garam masala. Add to crockpot with jar of salsa, can of tomato sauce, and apple cider vinegar. Cook on low 4-6 hours. Serve over spaghetti squash, roasted portabella mushroom cap, or buns for the holdouts in the family.
