I have a confession to make: Summer foods are starting to get the best of me. It was like coming into the season, like so many others, I was so focused on eating well, working out, and soaking in the rays. Now that we're midsummer, though, I'm just ... surrounded. Everywhere I turn there is some sort of delicious treat that I just have to have. Everywhere.
What kinda treats we talkin' about here? Well trust me, you know. There's grease. There's salt. And I bet you've even tangoed with a few of 'em too.
Do I have a solution? Well, maybe. Check out these 5 high-calorie summer treats that are deliciously bad for you, and 5 lower-calorie alternatives, here:
Oh corn dogs, how I love you. Seriously, though. Is there anything better than a corn dog in a park on a hot summer day? Doubtful. The problem? These beauties rank in at at least 310 calories a pop with a whopping 22 grams of fat per dog! Wowza.
The alternative: Get your corn dog fix with these corn dog muffins at home. With only 130 calories and a quarter of the fat as their larger cousins, they're a great way to get that same flavor.
