One of my biggest fears when starting on this weight loss journey was giving up my favorite Buffalo food favorites, especially buffalo chicken. When referring to Buffalo chicken you might immediately think wings that are fried until crispy, slathered in Frank’s hot sauce and butter, then dipped in creamy rich blue cheese. OMG just the thought of it is making me gain weight. After the Buffalo chicken wing was created those flavors started to make their way into other chicken dishes such as subs, dips, and even salads. The problem… each one probably had just as much fat and calories as a couple chicken wings.
Enter healthy food bloggers.
Obviously bloggers, such as myself, know that people still want to enjoy the comforts of Buffalo chicken. How do we know that? Because we want to drown ourselves in chicken, hot sauce, and blue cheese too. Who doesn’t want to enjoy comfort food? But…the catch is…we want to enjoy all the comforts of buffalo chicken while continue to fit into our clothes. Just saying, we have standards.
Anyway, this explains the HUGE amount of delicious healthy low-fat Buffalo chicken recipes that are all over the internet. Bloggers have risen to the occasion and created tons of Buffalo chicken recipes that can fit into a healthy lifestyle. There is everything from the classic Buffalo chicken sub to super fun recipes like Buffalo chicken quinoa bake or Buffalo chicken lasagna rolls. Yuuuummmmm!
