Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

It is no secret that I can’t get enough buffalo sauce in my life. I put it on things that I probably shouldn’t. I even had my family send me Anchorbar buffalo sauce because I can’t buy it in Brooklyn. In order to indulge in my buffalo love in a healthier way I decided to concoct some buffalo chicken lettuce wraps to keep it healthier than classic wings.

This dinner is BY FAR one of the best things I have made in months. It was the combinations of fresh veggies, juicy chicken and a little bit of spice that set my taste buds a flurry. My boyfriend and I devoured everything that I made, to my dismay because once I started eating I was hoping I would be able to enjoy in some leftovers. Good thing ground chicken was on sale and I bought two packs — it won’t be long before I am making these again!

Veggie Veggie Chili Recipe

It is not secret that I love a good crock pot recipe, so this past weekend I decide do experiment with a veggie chili. I am a big meat fan — my go-to chili normally includes ground beef AND Italian sausage, but my boyfriend tends to stray away from red meat whenever possible. I am not opposed to a meatless meal, so I went ahead with making a meatless chili, and it ended up working out.

The biggest change I made compared to other veggie chilis I have seen was using sweet mini peppers instead of bell peppers. I’m not a huge bell pepper fan, but for some reason I can’t get enough of the sweet mini peppers. They definitely added a new dimension of sweetness and flavor to the chili.

My Go-To Smoothie Recipe

Smoothies are the bomb. If I had the money to buy the ingredients, I would probably have a different one each day. However, as a college student I have to make do with what I have, which is one pretty damn good smoothie, which I started my morning with today.

The best part of this smoothie is in never tastes the same way each time I make it. Depending on the fruit or the yogurt there is always a slightly different taste. I also normally estimate on the measurements for each ingredient, which contributes to the flavor.

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen fruit
  • 3 tbsp low-fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • handful of spinach
  • desired amount of orange juice depending on how drinkable you want it
