I’ve been loving my slow cooker this season – the idea of throwing ingredients in and having a delicious, low labor meal at the end of the day always amazes me. I could have a nourishing soup every day if I could, but I thought it would be fun to share something a little different with it for you guys to enjoy. This simple Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe is one of my absolute favorites! There is so much you can do with the end product and it will surely please your pickiest of eaters. Bring it to your Super Bowl party this year and I bet you no one knows that its dairy free! It surely feels like the Super Bowl year round in my house when this dip is on the menu.
All you need is three ingredients, a slow cooker, and some time and you’re all set! I use Butcher Box chicken breasts and love how they are so high quality and humanely raised. Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce has always been a favorite of mine, and not to mention its Whole 30 approved! The Kite Hill almond milk cream cheese adds the perfect touch and flavor; I love incorporating it into a variety of my meals in some way.
Let me know if you decide to make it and I would absolutely love to hear what you think! If you remake on Instagram, remember to tag me at @matcha_and_margs so I can send the love and support right back. Enjoy!
A few months ago I discovered Yellowbird Sauces line of hot sauces and completely fell in love! I love adding spice to almost all of my foods and was excited to find a way to do so with a healthier sauce that reminded me of Sriracha. All of their flavors are amazing, but my two favorites are probably the Habanero and the Blue Agave Sriracha! They’re sweetened with a touch of cane sugar and do not have any weird fillers or ingredients. And you know I love when you are able to find products on Thrive Market! (Click here to see my full blog post of my Thrive Market recommendations, Yellowbird included!).
Although I have been pouring these sauces on a lot of my meals, I thought it would be fun to create a recipe with them. Salmon and tuna cakes are one of my favorite things to make in a pinch when I do not have any food prepped and chances are I have a can of wild caught fish on hand. For this recipe, I used Natural Sea salmon. Their salmon is my favorite canned variety I have tried so far. It tastes so flaky and fresh! This is the perfect recipe to whip up for a quick and easy meal – I find that these can be incorporated into any meal of the day. For example, you can have them for breakfast with eggs on top. Hope you enjoy!
My favorite kind of snacks are those that are easy to bring with me wherever I go! With a busy work schedule, healthy hacks like these are vital in order to having successful days. These roasted cashews are one of my favorites to prepare – they have the perfect roasted flavor. Don’t like the taste of turmeric? The sesame oil and seeds are really the star of the show here, all while getting the anti-inflammatory benefits of the turmeric behind the scenes. I love to keep a bag of these with me on the go for an emergency bite. Happy snacking!
