Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps Recipe
Today I want to share a real food Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps recipe with you. Now we have heard it said that 80% of your fitness success comes from the kitchen cooking your own real food meals. Meaning “You Are What You Eat”. And here at Simply Fit At Home, we believe that it is time to get back to eating real food and remember that organic is always best.
It wasn’t that long ago when this advice was the farthest thing that I was doing myself. In fact, I would say my main food groups were fast-food, processed food and sugar! So, I know what a challenge it can be to get back into the kitchen. You see my poor diet, 100 lbs overweight and all kinds of autoimmune issues, low to no energy were not giving me a quality of life I wanted.
Find Your Why To Enjoy Real Food!
The change came for me when I saw my mother lying on a hospital bed waiting 2 days for a hip replacement. I knew in that moment if I didn’t make some changes I was going to be her in a short period of time. This helped me to create a new vision for myself. And part of the process was taking the time to cook real food in my own kitchen most days of the week.
It was a learning process that I am totally grateful for. And it has been so worth it. I feel great today. The real food we eat cooked in our own kitchen is amazing. Truly! My health and well-being and fitness have improved ten fold. And it is because of this I know for sure learning how to eat real food from your own kitchen can do wonders for you and your health and fitness.
