In his book—also titled Now Eat This!—DiSpirito breaks down his thought-process behind the healthy buffalo chicken recipe he makes on the show. In it, he writes, "Buffalo wings are, hands down, one of the greatest dishes ever created. The combo of hot sauce and butter on a crispy chicken wing is sublime. Here's the donwside of these tasty things: Wing sauce is high in fat, chicken wings are high in fat, and the accompnaying blue-cheese dressing is high in fat. It all adds up to an astonishing 1,188 calories per serving. Here, the wings have been replaced with low-fat chicken tenders, the buffalo sauce with a great low-fat store-bought product, and regular blue cheese dressing with reduced-fat blue cheese dressing."
