Happy Wednesday friends! Looking for something quick yet tasty for your next weekend get together? I’ve got you covered. This week, I’m spicing things up a bit with this 20 minute recipe for Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes.
But first, let’s take a peak at some of my favorite eats from last week!
Nothing is better on a chilly rainy morning than waffles topped with warm apples and maple syrup! These pumpkin quinoa waffles have been a breakfast staple for me ever since my coach and friend @amber_fitfoodjunkie posted the recipe on her Instagram sometime ago. I love using quinoa, as it truly makes such fluffy waffles.
These Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes are so easy to make!

If your a fan of anything cherry and chocolate, you will enjoy Chocolate Dipped Cherry Cake Bites from Optimum Nutrition. They sort of remind me of those Little Debbie Cherry Cordial cakes I ate as a kid. The flavor is spot on and they actually tasted like a whipped chocolate covered cherry. Each 3-piece serving contains 20 grams of protein, 25 grams of carbs and 7 fats.
We had dinner out for the hubby’s birthday at a really cool place that specializes in craft brews. My starter was a grilled romaine salad with crab and blue cheese that was truly amazing! The hubby selected a steak and I naturally went with the salmon. My fish was served over some pesto(way too much pesto) mashed potatoes and a side of veggies.
My local Vitamin Shoppe started to carry Halo Top ice creams. I’m a huge fan of anything Pistachio and went with this flavor. Much to my disappointment, there are no crunchy pistachio bits. The flavor is a bit lacking and the bright green color is almost too much. To add a bit more pizzazz to this dessert, I topped it with my 30 second G-Butter brownie and a drizzle of NuNaturals Cocoa Syrup!
That’s it for this week’s round up! See you back here on Friday!
