Whether it be for a sport event, a night out or just a night of netflix and chill, chicken wings are a popular food choice. They are an ultimate deep fried go-to junk food. If you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle for wellness or for weightloss, you have to put chicken wings on the naughty list. However, it doesn't have to be this way!
Chicken wings can wreak havoc on the waistline, especially if its is a weekly tradition. I remember going to an all-you-can-eat Wings Wednesday years ago and going to town! If you steer clear of the skin, breading and deep frying, this is a great meal or snack! The other factor you want to consider are the ingredients they are using to create the wings. You should avoid oils such as Canola, corn and other industrial oils like the plague! They are extremely processed and high in trans fat which are related to worse memory function and increased risk of early mortality.
Fat from olives is attained simply by crushing olives and has been produced by humans for thousands of years. I use extra-virgin olive oil in my cooking every day! Ghee butter is also an alternative choice of fats including numerous health benefits. Ghee is free of lactose and casein and is high in compounds like CLA and butyrate. It also contains several fat-soluble vitamins, including A, E and K. It improves digestion, reduces inflammation, promotes weight loss and strengthens bones.
So why Garlic Parmesan? Garlic is a powerhouse of health benefits, from boosting immunity to reducing your risk of certain cancers. Parmesan is a low-lactose food, so some people who are senstive may be able to eat it. Its also has more calcium than any other cheese, and also packed with protein. You can also use a dairy-free alternative such as Daiya.
