I have an exciting announcement to share with you! I’ve teamed up with Alyson of The Average Girl’s Guide and Vahni of Grit and Glamour to bring to you Feel Fit February. We’re here to encourage and motivate you to completely ditch your scale for 28 days, and instead focus on feeling strong, healthy and confident. I personally haven’t stepped on a scale in over 6 months, and I’ve never felt more liberated. Once I stopped focusing on the numbers, my life was changed forever. Now I understand my body in deeper ways that no scale can read. So are you up for it?
There will be a Feel Fit February post every Tuesday across all of our blogs, covering topics like our own personal stories on why we ditched our scales, why quality is key in making healthy food choices, what some of our favorite recipes are, and what our fitness routines are like. We have different backgrounds and stories, but we’ve come together with one common goal: to get you to THROW OUT your scale and start listening to your body! I can promise you’ll never miss that old thing.
So, what do you say? Will you ditch your scale this month? Are you ready to start living a healthier life, unbound by numbers?
Comment below if you’re up for it. We’re all in it together!
Oh hey! There’s an amazing paleo buffalo wing recipe after the break…
Healthy Superbowl food! Oxymoron? Not today, baby. I really don’t care for the football this year (my team is never in the Superbowl), so I’m mostly excited to see my friend Amy (hiiiii Amy!) cheer for the Raven’s in a cute purple, sparkly outfit on the sidelines. And then I’m excited to fill my plate with these wings. What? It’s protein….
You’re going to be amazed at how easy these are and how non-healthy they taste. You’re going to think these were fried and that they’re total fat food. They’re not. And they’re darn tasty, lemme tell ya.
1-3 lbs organic buffalo style chicken wings (Whole Foods has a great selection for great prices)
1/2 cup coconut oil or ghee (we also tried using pastured butter, but didn’t like it as much because it felt greasy)
4 tablespoons Frank’s Original hot sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced (or 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, but I preferred the real stuff)
1 small lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
salt & pepper to taste
green onions, for garnish (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat chicken dry and line on baking sheet. Sprinkle chicken with fresh cracked pepper and sea salt. Bake on middle rack for 30 minutes. Then bring the baking sheet to the top rack and bake for another 15-20 minutes, turning the wings once. OR you can leave the wings on the middle rack and turn the broiler on high, then bake on each side until dark and crispy.
While the chicken is cookin’, melt your coconut oil, ghee or butter and then add the hot sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, minced garlic and paprika. Whisk together until all ingredients are incorporated.
Remove baking sheet from oven when done, add wings to bowl with buffalo sauce and stir until each wing is thoroughly coated. Serve, garnish and enjoy!
BOOM. So easy, right?
