You know, I never like to look at any nutritional plan in terms of what I can’t have…
“Oh, I can’t have ice cream. I’ll never be able to stick to this plan.”
Believe me, when our bodies are functioning optimally, they don’t want ice cream. But, I digress.
Instead, I like to focus on all of the great foods and drinks I can have.
And one of the surprising staples outlined in my new book, The Plant Paradox, is that you can have…
In fact, red wine has a magic ingredient that actually makes it good for you. It’s called resveratrol and it’s a polyphenol that acts like an antioxidant with great beneficial qualities.
For instance, recent studies show resveratrol –
- Has antioxidant properties that help fight against oxidative stress1
- Has anti-inflammatory properties2
- Can even help lower your systolic blood pressure3
So, the bottom line is the right amounts of red wine can actually help your health.
But, how do you know you’re drinking the right amount of red wine?
Well, the right amount is certainly not the whole bottle – in fact, you want to stick to no more than 6 oz per day. So, the question becomes…
How to know how much you’ve drank?
Well, my friend’s glasses are the perfect solution…It comes in black or white colored emojis:
And, Mr. Picky Custom Measuring Wine Glasses will design wine glasses to your specifications.
Turns out, Mr. Picky can create a discreet 6 oz mark on your wine glasses and you’ll always know when you’ve hit your daily limit. In fact, you can send them a logo with which to mark your glass, or they can even design a custom logo.
With a six ounce measuring mark on the glass, you’ll be able to pour for a party of four – with an ounce left over.
My favorite glass is the happy, emoji stemless wine glass!
The bottom of each adorable emoji measures either 4, 6, or 8 ounces. And the lead-free German crystal is of the highest quality. It’s extremely difficult to break and dishwasher safe.
Beyond helping you stick to your goals when following the The Plant Paradox, Mr. Picky wine glasses can also help control your wine costs.
I love these glasses so much, because the markings are discreet – so nobody needs to know you’re monitoring your intake but you!
So check them out at Mr. Picky Custom Measuring Wine Glasses and enjoy the proper amount of delicious red wine knowing you’re doing something good for your body.
It really is the best way to stay Gundry compliant! And thanks to my dear friends and Mr. Picky founders, Patti and David, for such an amazing shout out about my new book “The Plant Paradox” on their blog!
