Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip

Big on taste, but low in calories, this skinny buffalo chicken dip is sure to be a game day pleaser this fall!

Since I’ve been on this weight loss journey, and by the way I’ve lost 130 pounds and am now maintainingwhoop! whoop!, I have totally changed how I think about food and my relationship with it.  BUT….that doesn’t mean I still don’t appreciate, and like to have, a great party dip, especially during football season!

Seriously, it isn’t quite football season and game day without some Buffalo Wings, but for me those are off the menu.  Instead, I love to make this Skinny Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip! It’s become a family favorite and a perfect “skinner” option for your friends and family that are watching their waistline.

    Heather, I have only recently started following your blog. Congratulations on the weight loss. May I asked if you followed a program or was it diet and exercise? I’ve just started (again) trying to lose weight (85 lbs). Thank you for the encouragement.
