Healthy Choice Low Fat Franks



Its time for those great cook outs with all the trimmings as we approach the Fourth of July holiday. It can be really tough to make good food choices while everyone else is chomping down on beef ribs, cheeseburgers and brisket. Everyone knows that chicken is a healthy meat especially when grilled, but what do you do when you want a good ole hot dog?

Healthy Choice has a solution for you. Look in your grocers refrigerated case next to all of the other juicy fat hot dogs for these lower fat and calorie hot dogs. Each frank, wiener, hot dog or what ever you like to call them has 70 calories and 2.5 grams of fat. Each frank is only two points on Weight Watchers.

Now I am not going to lie to you and tell you that they are fabulous but I will tell you they are an adequate replacement for the real thing. When cooking mine on the grill I baste them with a little barbeque sauce. If I feel like chili dogs then you can cook them in some turkey chili to help with your fat and calorie intake. There are many fat free condiments you can add to give them some additional flavor. If you are lucky you can even find some one point hot dog buns. If you feel like beans and franks then these are for you.

I would prefer to have an all beef hot dog or even a local favorite, Earl Campbell Hot Links but you know I am trying to lose some weight here. Have a great holiday no matter where you live.

70 calories for a hot dog is pretty good.

The chili idea is great. There are healthy chilis on the market, I am sure, and they probably make the meal of eating a dog healthier.
