As great as it would be to chow down on some hot wings post-workout, it's unlikely that your body will thank you for it.
Here's the solution: grab some heart-healthy shrimp, veggies, and rice, and toss in some hot sauce. You'll get the same flavor, plus a heart-healthy serving of snap peas, carrots, and cherry tomatoes.

Cook rice according to package instructions.
Heat large non-stick stir-fry pan or wok over medium-high heat until hot. Spray pan, then add peas and carrots. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Cook until peas are bright green and warmed. Push to edges of pan.
Re-spray center of pan, and add shrimp in single layer. Cook until bright pink, about 1-2 minutes per side. Add tomatoes. Push peas and carrots back to center, mixing them with shrimp and tomatoes.
Spoon 2 Tbsp. hot sauce over the shrimp and veggies, and toss. Spread cooked rice evenly over bottom of salad bowl or over dinner plate.
Carefully mound the stir-fry on top. Drizzle remaining Tbsp. of hot sauce over top. Serve immediately.
