Sometimes you deserve a little treat

When I first started on my journey to be a better and thinner me, I had visions of endless salad bowls running through my head. And it scared me. Not that I don't love salads, but there is only so much of one food that you can eat before you feel ill at the mere mention of the word. That was before I knew that there were healthier versions of the food that I love.

Take this Trader Joe's Mini Chocolate Bar. One serving is 3 bars for a total of 190 calories. I eat one, cut my calorie intake, and satisfy my raging sweet tooth ;)

Buffalo Wild Wings is one my favorite places to eat. I love boneless wings. Especially Honey BBQ. But, like most resturant foods of that nature, it is loaded with calories, fat, sodium, all the things I am trying to limit in my daily diet.

I was stoked with I found this recipe for Boneless Honey BBQ Wings, over on TrainerMomma. (Her blog is one of my favorites to turn to for yummy recipes)

Boneless chicken tenderloin. (one package was enough for my family)
1/2 cup BBQ sauce. Look for one that is low in sugars. Open Pit was the only brand that I found in my supermarket that was less then 9g sugar
2 Tbs Honey.
Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper

What To Do:
Combine BBQ sauce and honey in a bowl and set aside.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper and garlic powder on the chicken
Place in a single layer in a skillet (you may have to do this in batches)
Cook. (3-5 minutes on each side)
Put the cooked "wings" in a bowl, pour BBQ mix over them and toss to coat.

These bad boys are y-u-m-m-y!

I served mine with steamed green beans.
