Oh My Gosh, It's Low-Carb Honey BBQ Wings!

Whip up some hot and spicy low-carb honey BBQ wings

When you are livin' la vida low-carb, one of the foods you get to know quite intimately is chicken. I bet I've eaten chicken every which way but loose in recipes that make me cluck just thinking about them. Yes, I LOVE my chicken, but it's hard to surprise me with a recipe that makes chicken stupendous again!

Well, it's finally happened with a recipe from my friends at Low-Carb Connoisseur for a low-carb version of Honey BBQ Wings. But I thought you couldn't have honey on the low-carb lifestyle because of all the sugar? That's right, you can't!

But this recipe uses a delicious low-carb alternative for honey to create the most mouth-watering, spicy BBQ wings that have ever graced the presence of your tastebuds! This is a perfect party platter pleaser whether you are livin' la vida low-carb or not. Don't be surprised when people come back begging for more!

Mmmm, very yummy indeed, Jimmy. Personally I love the combination of chicken and Indian spices and herbs like curry. A nice, thick, spicy curry sauce made out of (real) butter and plenty spices plus egg yolks is "da bomb" :)

Or Malay chicken with soy sauce and satay sauce from peanuts...

Nice with a green leafy side salad plus a spicy cucumber salad with onions...

I think I will have chicken tonight :)

My newest study in my weight loss journey is the "Love of Food" hypothesese. Love of food like love of liquid is seen as perfectly inherent and natural.

My dog laddie would just inhale anything you gave him, usually meat. Give him a nice chunk of steak or roast and bam, he would down it in one swallow. I would think geeze Laddie, why don't you take time to savor and enjoy this great morsel. He would be all energy and spirit and all excited and going in circles wanting more and to get that meat and then be all eyes and movements and emotions and excitement and love looking for still more and then bam, he would down it in one again.

I'm thinking that with all that plain dog food he ate on a daily basis that this really good human food he would take time to appreciate a little more but nope, bam, down it in one every time.

My study says that he wanted it so badly not for it's taste or flavor, although he would lick his chops approvingly, his satisfaction came in getting it instantly into his belly where he could digest it and get it to feed his "bones".

I suppose this sounds off the wall but the connoisseuring of taste and sweeteners point rapidly to our initial weight gains in the first place.

Addictions feeding addictions rather than eating for life just like breathing for life. We like good fresh air but we simply breath it and enjoy it we don't swoon over it.

I won't mention constant swooning over females, another counterpart of an addictive personality.

Most species and tribes simply eat, drink and breath without fanfare. The same with there sex life.

That's not to say they don't enjoy all these things, they are all innate to every living creature, they simply have them or lack them.

The hunting and gathering of these things are also very enjoyable.

Then there is diverted sexuality and diverted desire but that's another story.

Food is good. Life is good. Existence is good.

Addictions are not good

If we were supposed to just eat food for life then why would God have created such a variety for us with so many different flavors. I believe we can have enjoyment without addiction. It's not black and white. God also created humans differently from the animals. We are not mere animals, thus we behave differently. Also, dogs will overeat even without taking time to taste the food. How can you explain that using your theory.

I don't think God created ships to sail the Seas gathering bounty and abundance and land for all the Kings and Queens.

Typically we humans ate what was available within about two to ten miles from our dwellings and village. It was good. We were satisfied.

A Dogs nature is to eat it before another dog gets it. It will come back out one end or the other if it's to much. Then he will eat it again if he is still hungry.
