I’ve got a delicious post for you today! Let’s jump right into it. After all, itz What I Ate Wednesday over at Peas & Crayons, so make sure you pop over there.
Healthy blend of fats, protein, and carbs! Itz mighty tasty, too!
Lunch: Peppers & celery with cheesy buffalo bean dip & roasted red pepper hummus
Lots of snacks were eaten before and after, which is why lunch was on the smaller side. But it sure is pretty, isn’t it? Colorful meals are the best! (And the healthiest!)
Cheesy Buffalo Bean Dip Recipe is below!
Snack: Fiber Love Bars for Wellness Wednesday at school
Wellness Wednesday at school is back which means I find different sponsors to provide healthy on-the-go snacks for our staff. We need to lead by example as we teach the kiddies, and properly fueling our bodies is definitely important. Fiber Love Bars are my favorite fiber bars ever. Not only do they provide 48% of your daily fiber needs, but they come in absolutely AWESOME flavors! Check it out: Peanut Chocolate Chip, Banana Walnut, Blondie Bar, Blueberry Cobbler, Chocolate Brownie, and Cinnamon Raisin.
Mmm, so good! Also, they’ve got a Fiber Love Club that you can sign up for free to receive 30% off regular priced bars and free shipping. Fiber Love bars are also kosher and Non-GMO Project verified. All Fiber Love bars – except Blondie, which contains whole milk powder – are also vegan.
Dinner: cheese tortellini with peas and Parmesan cheese
The tortellini came from Trader Joe’s and I feel like peas and parm compliment tortellini so well. There were about fifty-five bowls of this eaten last night. 😉
And now for that recipe….
The Superbowl may have passed, but our love for dips certainly has not! This cheesy buffalo bean dip recipe is sure to please – itz packed with protein, flavor, and spice!
Cheesy Buffalo Bean Dip Recipe
- 1/2 package (4 oz.) cream cheese
- 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 can (16 oz) refried beans
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup salsa
- 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese mix
- Combine all ingredients in small pot.
- Cover and cook on low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat, pour in serving dish, garnish with additional chili powder.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
Itz so easy to make! (Those are always the best recipes.) And it can be considered lightened up. I used light cream cheese and Mexican cheese. (I would not recommend nonfat cream cheese or Mexican cheese.) I used nonfat plain Chobani Greek yogurt, and I suppose low fat or full fat would work just fine, too. Use more or less chili powder and buffalo sauce depending on your preference of spice.
What would you dip in the cheesy buffalo bean dip? (Face or fingers don’t count!) 😉
