Buffalo Chicken Dip {recipe}

It's Superbowl Sunday this weekend! I need to share this super duper easy buffalo chicken dip with you. It's a little healthier than other ones with ranch seasoning or mayo!  I packed my leftover dip with celery, oranges  and a lactation cookie (oatmeal cookie fortified with brewers yeast and flax seeds) Buffalo Chicken Dip (primal or lacto-paleo or "paleo con queso") 2 cups of shredded cooked chicken 8 oz cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (or crumbled blue cheese-I'm not a fan though) 1/4-1/2 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot) 1/2-1 cup cheddar cheese (optional) Combine cream cheese, yogurt, 1/2 cheddar cheese, and hot sauce in a medium bowl. Add shredded chicken. Pour into a 1-quart baking dish and top with additional cheese. Bake at 350 ° F for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with chips, crackers, or vegetables. packed in an  EasyLunchBox note: This post may conta

Chicken Tacos (paleo ish)

We had leftover chicken tacos (super easy recipe below.) Even daddy had to get into the lunch action... It's a family affair! With the exception of the baby... who still is on mama's milk. Although... come to think of it I did store breastmilk in an Easylunchbox when I forgot to bring milk bottles to pump into at work 2 months ago... ha ha ha... squirrel ! Mommy's Lunch Chicken taco salad, with pico de gallo & salsa {paleo} Pecans and applesauce Daddy's lunch: Chicken taco salad with sour cream, pico, salsa and shredded cheese Daddy did not pack his in an Easylunchbox because he said it didn't fit his (falling apart) cooler. So 2 days later (thanks, Amazon Prime !) this arrived at the front door: a black EasyLunchBox cooler just for Daddy! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chicken Salsa Tacos (slow cooker/Crock Pot recipe) 3-4 boneless chicken breasts 1 jar (16-24oz) pre
