How to Enjoy Wings on a Diet December 26, 2018

How to Enjoy Wings on a Diet, Queens, New York

Wings are a classic American food, whether you’re watching a game or just hanging out with friends. For those on a diet, giving them up can be challenging. Fortunately, there are ways to enjoy this staple without packing on the calories. Here are a few tips for staying healthy while still enjoying a tasty snack. 

How to Enjoy Wings Without Hurting Your Health

Drink Water 

Beer and sugary soft drinks are the traditional accompaniment to this meal, but if you’re trying to cut back, consider ordering water instead. If you choose to indulge in a drink, limit yourself to one, and have plenty of water along with it.

Choose Vegetables for Your Side

wingsPart of the reason why a night of feasting can harm diets isn’t the wings themselves — it’s the sides. Instead of ordering a side of salty fries, opt for a healthy alternative. Carrots or celery sticks provide a satisfying crunch with plenty of nutrients and fewer calories.

Avoid Creamy Sauces

Many of those dipping sauces are where the real calories hide. Creamy ones tend to have high sugar counts, which is detrimental to those on a diet. When choosing a sauce, skip the ranch and blue cheese and opt for something tomato-based. This will still add flavor to your dish, but in a much healthier way. You can also consider having extra seasoning put on your order as a way to spice up the taste.

 

You don’t have to give up your favorite food just because you’re on a diet. Next time it’s game night or you just have a craving for wings, stop by Buffalo Wild Wings. Since 1982, they’ve spread from their original location in Columbus, OH, to feed almost every state’s hunger for burgers and other classic American food.
