A Pomegranate

Once you manage to get the tasty seeds out of the pomegranate, you can enjoy them sprinkled on yogurt or salads. Half a cup of pomegranate seeds have about 80 calories. Eating the entire seed — rather than just the juice — can provide you with five grams of fiber and various antioxidants. They also provide a lot of vitamin C to help ward off illness.

A Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Enjoying a serving of PB&J with two slices of white bread, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and strawberry jelly will add up to about 510 calories. This isn't the healthiest sandwich even if it has the monosaturated fat from the peanuts. The good news is that by using whole wheat bread and a sparing amount of jelly you can increase the fiber and decrease the added sugar in the childhood staple.

Fresh Cherries

A bowl of fresh cherries is hard to resist. How can you have just one? One cherry has 5 calories, so enjoying a cup of cherries adds up to a moderate 90 calories with 3 grams of fiber. Cherries are also a great source of vitamin C and can help prevent inflammation.

A Pint of Beer

Sometimes a cold beer is the perfect drink for a hot day. Since an average pint of beer is around 205 calories, it's definitely a treat. Be careful though, more than two and you'll be drinking half a day's worth of calories. A serving of beer actually has magnesium, selenium and even folate.

A Gin and Tonic

A Gin and Tonic is a charming nightcap, but it does add up to 171 calories. By drinking from a smaller glass, you'll easily cut back on the calories.

A Long Island Iced Tea

Sometimes you're in the mood for a sweet cocktail. However, the Long Island Ice Tea is especially sweet, containing about 520 calories! You could have a whole meal instead of a Long Island Ice Tea and it's heavy on the carbs for a beverage. Save this drink for a very special occasion.

A Margarita

Brace yourselves. One 10-ounce margarita clocks in at about 740 calories! The basis of a margarita is tequila, which can be high in calories. Enjoying a margarita should be reserved for very decadent evenings. Stick to wine or light beer the rest of the time.

10 Chicken Wings

Sure, chicken has a good amount of protein, but just 10 chickens wings equals about 1,590 calories and 107 grams of fat! Do your best to indulge in just a few wings, or try lightening them up by preparing them at home.
