Filed under: Low-carb Recipes — @ December 13, 2005

What’s with all the spicy dishes? I like them! It puts that extra taste bud to work and gives you a really good feeling. Also, it burns calories! If something’s too spicy for you, you’ll begin to sweat or begin drinking a lot of water, both of these burn calories.
