Hawaiian BBQ Chicken

This Hawaiian BBQ Chicken makes for a delicious, healthy dinner! This meal is hearty, fresh, and macro friendly! It's a win win! The BBQ chicken is served over a bed of coconut rice, with a side of fresh pineapple. This meal is low calorie, high protein. and totally flavorful. The secret for keeping the calories down in this meal is in the BBQ sauce. Make it with me!

This meal is quickly becoming a staple in the dinner rotation! Everyone loves it! I use my Instant Pot's to cook the chicken and the coconut rice. If you don't have two Instant Pots, don't worry. I have included directions for cooking the rice in the instant pot, rice cooker, and on the stove top.

The secret to making this dinner so delicious is in the BBQ sauce! I have found a new healthy, delicious BBQ sauce. It's low in calories but it doesn't lack in flavor. It's Stubb's BBQ Sauce! It has a blend of tangy tomatoes, vinegar, and black pepper. It's also Gluten Free and All Natural Ingredients. It's made with real sugar - no high fructose corn syrup.

You can look for it at your local grocery store, or order some on Amazon through this link

Photos Are Always Funnier When You Add a Caption (31 pics)

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
