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!

Week 3: Day 2

Feb. 3, 2015

Winters in Ithaca, NY are cold. Too cold for me, which I think has put me in a perpetually grumpy mood. It also made it that much more difficult to get out of bed this morning.

Breakfast

I think this is the lamest breakfast I have had since starting this. I had a Luna bar, a good Luna bar, but a Luna bar. I had the mint chocolate chip protein one, which I would definitely recommend, but probably not for breakfast. I felt like I was eating a candy bar. It did fill me up though.

Lunch

Day 4 of the sausage lentil soup. I am looking forward to the day it is gone.

Dinner

lettuce wrap

I actually cooked something today! I made PF Changs inspired lettuce wraps from this recipe. I feel like this is the general theme with everything I make, but very tasty and very easy. I used baby romaine instead of butter lettuce and they help up perfectly. I love asian food, so this was a nice way to feel like I was eating out without actually doing it. Also, super flavorful, which is a great plus when trying to eat healthy.
