The Doctors are at it again, testing out some of the latest food trends you’re seeing all over social media. The first one up looks like your typical smoothie bowl but it is made using bone broth. Chiropractor Dr. Brian Abasolo aka “Dr. Abs” explains how this bowl packs a healthy punch!
There is a high concertation of key minerals like phosphorus, calcium and magnesium. It also contains collagen which is great for the skin and antiaging. Dr. Abs adds that it’s great for digestion, the elasticity of the skin, and as a weight-loss aid. The bone broth used in this bowl came in a protein powder form.
Psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow says he’s all about brain health and he has bone broth almost every morning. He adds that it’s fantastic and great for the skin as well. The question is, how does it taste?
Even picky-eater OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry gives it a buzz! “It’s not bad and I’m surprised!” Dr. Nita wants you to try it out at home and let them know what you think on social media!
Edible flowers are next on the docket. These flowers are popping up everywhere: on salads, cocktails, cakes… However, botanists are telling people to think before they eat them. Sometimes flowers are safe but other ones can be poisonous. It’s not worth the risk! For that reason, Dr. Nita gives this trend a bust!
Lastly, it’s hummus for dessert! This chocolatey treat is made from chickpeas but instead of using the savory ingredients in hummus, like garlic and olive oil, there are ingredients like cinnamon, cocoa powder and coconut oil. Fruit or pretzels both dip well with it.
Dr. Dow thinks it's delicious and likes how it can help manage blood sugar spikes. Sugar shrinks the brain but this has a lot of antioxidants. Dr. Abs adds that it’s a way to indulge in sweets but a healthier substitution. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon announces it’s a buzz!
