R E C I P E S
B U F F A L O C H I C K E N W R A P S
1 C pancake mix (we love Kodiak Cakes brand)
1 C milk (almond, oat, coconut, etc)
1/2 C mini chocolate chips
**Optional toppings include: avocado, cherry tomatoes, green onions, drizzle of ranch, etc.**
Slice the chicken breasts into 1/4" strips. In a small bowl, add chipotle powder, garlic powder, & onion powder and mix until combined.
Next, season the chicken with salt & pepper, followed by the buffalo seasoning mix you just made, until the seasoning is spread evenly on the chicken.
In a skillet, over medium heat, add oil. Once heated slightly, add in the sliced chicken & cook for 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is white all the way through.
Serve in lettuce cups & top with your favorite toppings (also try my homemade ranch recipe down below!) That's it! Time to enjoy! YUM!!

Cook quinoa according to package instructions, then cool in a storage container in the fridge for a few hours (or 1-2 days ahead of time). Add chilled quinoa to a large bowl, along with all the rest of the salad ingredients. Mix well until combined. Next, prepare the dressing by combining all of the dressing ingredients. Then pour over the quinoa salad & stir to combine. Super easy right?! The only thing left to do is ENJOY your delicious & filling salad! This stays good in the fridge for 5+ days and tastes amazing no matter when you enjoy it! Serve chilled. YUM!

B L U E B E R R Y G R U N T
4 C blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 C flour (I use Nameste gluten free blend)
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter (dairy free if needed)
1 C milk (almond, oat, coconut, etc)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a pot, on medium heat, add in all the blueberry filling ingredients & cook until it begins to lightly boil. Then, reduce heat to low & simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the blueberry filling cooks, make the biscuit topping by adding all ingredients into a small mixing bowl. Stir until combined (note that this will be a wet dough). Once the blueberries have been cooking for 10 minutes, add into a small baking dish. Then begin dropping spoonfuls of the biscuit dough on top, not covering the blueberries fully. Pop the baking dish into the oven for 20 minutes, or until the topping is fully cooked & golden. Let cool for a few minutes & serve warm! ENJOY!!
