I can do the veggies and yogurt dip but I don't want to feel left out as people much out on chips and salsa and hot wings. I seem to remember Frank's hot sauce has no calories ( I might be wrong about that). We could grill the wings. Any other suggestions? ???

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 18:15:55 EST fish fillet question http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=62&imparent=36120155 I am having haddock tonight, and all I do to it is dust it with flour and pan fry. (no egg, no milk, nothing but flour/salt/pepper. I put it in the recipe calculator, but it seemed to add up to a lot...6 carbs for one fillet. As the fish has no carbs, the oil has no carbs, how much would you add for the dusting of one fillet of fish. I can always use the six, but on days where carbs are high I would like to be more accurate. <BR> <BR> Thanks Fri, 17 Apr 2015 12:33:01 EST fast metabolism diet http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=62&imparent=36086371 Hi.
