Golden, crispy, sweet and tangy?? It’s no wonder this is one of my favorite level 1 recipes, probably of all time. The wings have a PERFECT crunch. It’s very difficult to share these even for the most generous of heart, trust me. If you’re eating with people who are skeptical of your new “lifestyle”, make them these wings and the Stuffed Cabbage with Chili without telling them they are on level 1. It is very fun to see their reactions.

Health Coach Tip: Look for mustards that are colored with turmeric. I found a dijon mustard that’s colored with it. Whole Food’s 365 organic mustard is colored with turmeric. It’s a root similar to ginger with outstanding health benefits. One particularly is it’s anti-inflammatory benefits.
In simple terms, when your body is inflamed, it doesn’t use calories effectively. When you add anti-inflammatory powerhouses into your foods at any opportunity, it will help your body to use the nutrients coming in- (instead of storing them as fat).
