Will hot sauce burn calories?
Eggs are just one favorite foods for individuals who are attempting to lose weight. In addition to the lower caloric foods, there are many myths that people continue to try that really aren't worth their salt.
One of these involves hot sauce, peppers and other foods that hold a lot of heat.
Fact is, hot sauce as well as other foods with heat are more likely to burn your mouth than burn calories.
The theory behind the hot sauce myth is that the heat of the peppers melts off pounds. However, our bodies are much smarter than that and will only burn off the calories contained in the food. For hot sauce, that's about 10 calories per teaspoon.
A favorite at our house during the year is sweet beets. Because sugar is a concern we've tickled ours with Splenda. We recommend the tiny baby beets - about 1 inch in diameter. As a note, beets are ultra easy to grow. In most areas, plant just before autumn makes an appearance to ensure a crop before the holidays arrive.
1 can of beets in their natural juice OR cooked garden beets either tiny rounds OR sliced
1/2 to 1 cup of Splenda - depending upon how sweet you like your beets
1/4 to 1/2 cup of vinegar - as with the sweetness agent, adjust the sour agent to suit your personal taste
Simply mix the vinegar into the beets, then stir in the Splenda. Heat on the stove until hot, then cool and pour into a pretty glass jar. Seal to lock out odors and store in refrigerator. Although mixture keeps well, we do not recommend keeping Tickled Beets longer than a few days in the fridge. Generally, they are all eaten on the first day because they are just too good.
