Wellness Tip
Healthy Bagel Spread
Are you a bagel lover? Modest portions of whole grain bagels can be a healthy breakfast option. Traditional cream cheese spreads, however, deliver a big hit of saturated fat and calories. Consider this alternative - a blend of silken tofu, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and minced dried fruit. This spread provides dietary fiber, protein, several vitamins and minerals, contains only healthy fat, and has no cholesterol. If you really, really love your cream cheese use it but less, or consider trying a lower fat version such as Neufchatel cheese. Your heart will thank you!

Recipe
Crispy Baked Asian Chicken Wings
Category: Main Meals
Description: There are few occasions when I’d argue that “baked” rules over “deep-fried.” But believe it or not, a piping hot oven—and not a vat of bubbling oil—is the secret to the crispiest, crackliest chicken wings. And with just five ingredients and 50 minutes, you’ll be licking your fingers clean for every last taste of these Crispy Baked Asian Chicken Wings. Sound too good to be true?
I consider myself a bit of a wing connoisseur. Buffalo, chipotle, teriyaki, barbecue—you name it, I’ve winged it. While it’s hard to beat basic butter and hot sauce, I’ve turned to my favorite hoisin and blackberry jam glaze (of mini-meatball fame) to add a sweet and tangy twist to each crunchy bite. I guarantee these wings will fly off the plate. (You had to know that was coming…)
