Subs are probably the most straightforward food in this article to make healthy. Therefore, I will not give too much detail on the healthy alternatives. 

The best alternative of a sub to buy at a sandwich shop is getting a flatbread option. It is a great option, especially when you need to cut back on your bread intake. If you do not like the flatbread sandwich option, then create a sub that consists of lean meat, fresh vegetables, and minimum condiments. This is also an excellent option to consider, as well.

Cauliflower Wings

Wings are another delicious American food. And that is many can seem to stay away. Some may have heard of this wing alternative before and found it be a significant, and others may have found it to be an unfavorable option. And that is why you need to try out cauliflower wings for yourself so that you can discover if you like or not. 

Yes, cauliflower wings are definitely an uncommon food, and many people question the tastiness of this entree. I completely understand why. When someone creates a combination of food that does not seem likely, then we automatically question it. However, the best way to find the answers you are looking for is by trying them out yourself. 

Cauliflower does not have much of a taste, and that why the taste of these wings is all determined by the breading, seasoning, and sauce! That is why it is so important to cook them correctly and create the taste you desire overall. 

Find the recipe to cauliflower wings online or in a cookbook that consists of vegetarian or vegan options. Try this recipe out yourself the next time you crave wings!
