A Deep Fried Snack
Deep Fried Foods are generally a "no-no" because they are coated in flour (which is a refined carb which stops fat burn and stores fat) and because of the extra fat content which is added to food due to the deep frying. However, there is a way you can have fried food and still lose weight! So if you are preacher, which is what I am, and you like fried chicken you can have it!!
First, you will need MCT oil. MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. According to one product description "MCT oil is more readily broken down and is absorbed differently than other types of fat. It requires fewer enzymes and bile acids for digestion, so it can provide or supplement dietary fat and calories in patients who might otherwise have compromised nutrition. One tablespoon of MCT oil provides 115 calories." MCT can be quickly accessed for fuel by your body.
Next, you will need an extreme fibre tortilla like Ole Extreme Fibre Tortilla (plain).
Cut the tortilla into triangles
Fourth, place tortillas on plate and spread a thin layer of peanut butter on them. NOTE: you need the peanut butter for protein. Without the protein, this is NOT a snack. It will have too many calories to qualify as an extra.
Fifth, pour Sugar Free Syrup on them.
