My dinner! As a fan of buffalo wings AND optimal health, I've engineered the perfect buffalo chicken wing recipe, which lends the wings the exact crunch and crispiness that good buffalo wings are known for, but without any of the health and performance-zapping garbage ingredients. In fact, these wings are rich in various key nutrients including choline, niacin, and vitamin B12 from chicken, and collagen! Chicken skin is full of collagen, as are the cartilage-rich joints of the chicken wing. Collagen consists of important amino acids glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which have become relatively rare in the modern diet. Supplementing with them has been shown to enhance sleep, boost mood, improve skin texture, and even promote longevity (in animals). For buffalo wing sauce I combine grass-fed butter with regular hot sauce. The butter provides a small amount of butyrate as well as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which might help protect against cancer and assist in fat burning. The hot sauce provides red pepper, which kicks up your metabolism, makes you feel good (by upregulating endogenous painkillers like endorphins), and contains capsaicin which was shown to positively shift gut microbiota composition to one that produced more beneficial short-chain fatty acids (like butyrate) and reduced bacteria that produce highly-inflammatory lipopolysaccharide. Oh, and these wings are gluten-free, grain free, and contain zero carbohydrates (keto-friendly). Full recipe in link in profile bio! .
