There’s nothing like settling into a plate of spicy, tangy wings while watching the big game. But let’s be honest — the sauce is usually better than the chicken!
In Dr. Gundry’s new Plant Paradox–approved version, you can still enjoy the addictive flavor and crunch of your favorite game day treat — without the halftime stomach-ache.
How? Just replace the chicken with cauliflower.
Researchers believe cauliflower has therapeutic abilities. You see, there are enzymes in cauliflower that give rise to the production of genes that help control the vegetable’s antioxidant response element (ARE). This grows its antioxidant power, which can help the cells in your body better withstand oxidative stress.1
Furthermore, cauliflower could be related to the reduction of the risk of chronic diseases, heart health issues, and serious illness. For starters, cauliflower is nutritive, providing several health-promoting phytochemicals, like —
And like broccoli and cabbage, cauliflower belongs to the cruciferous family of vegetables. These veggies contain vitamin A, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin C, calcium, iron, phosphorus, and good fat to help fight illness.3
So, now you know these treats aren’t just tasty, they’re also incredibly good for you. You can munch throughout the game without guilt — they taste sweet and tangy, but they’re healthy, too.
