Hey Friends!! Friday again and another WW week in the books or on the scale I should say!! This week I lost 0 BUT I maintained my 10 pound total weight loss and that is fine by me! I have found a system that my body seems to like……..loose weight one week and then the following week maintain it. So next week I will hopefully loose 1-2 pounds after this past week of being able to stay at my current weight. I think we all have to figure out what works best for us.
NOW….I have some awesome recipes to share with you!! I have to remind myself that this is truly a lifestyle change and NOT a diet…so all these recipes constantly amaze me. I would make any of these wether they were WW or not! First up…..

So I am not a huge fan of “Buffalo” anything, not my favorite flavor BUT I am officially obsessed with this recipe! This is from my new favorite cooking blog Skinny Taste:
Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Servings: 6 • Size: 1/2 cup chicken + veggies • Old Points: 3 pts • Points+: 3 pt
Calories: 147.7 • Fat: 0.1 g • Carb: 5.2 g • Fiber: 1.6 g • Protein: 24.9 g • Sugar: 1.7 g
Sodium: 879 mg
For the chicken:
- 24 oz boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1 celery stalk
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic
- 16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
- 1/2 cup hot cayenne pepper sauce (I used Frank’s)
For the wraps:
- 6 large lettuce leaves, Bibb or Iceberg
- 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
- 2 large celery stalks, cut into 2 inch matchsticks
In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn’t enough). Cover and cook on high 4 hours.
Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest. Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the slow cooker with the 1/2 cup broth and the hot sauce and set to on high for an additional 30 minutes. Makes 3 cups chicken.
To prepare lettuce cups, place 1/2 cup buffalo chicken in each leaf, top with 1/4 cup shredded carrots, celery and dressing of your choice. Wrap up and start eating
