This is life and we must live it right? Well, when you have tough goals to reduce body fat and fit into those smaller dress sizes then it’s a must that you stick to very strict nutritional guidelines and an exercise routine.

However from time to time we do have guests over for dinner, or we have to take a dish to a dinner party and although you’re the health nut like me that would probably show up with carrot sticks and broccoli, you can still surprise a few people from time to time with a healthier version of a very unhealthy treat. I’ve been at odds with the “Bangkok Fat Ass” and his fat foodie clan for a while now in a struggle for twitter dominance. Today they have met their match as this recipe puts a slightly healthier spin on a common high calorie, high fat loss goal killer. This is not a recommendation, but simply an alternative…a lesser of two evils. But what the heck…Enjoy
