Description:
This recipe is an example of how you can subsitute agave nectar or honey for corn syrup to make these a healthier choice. Agave makes a good substitute for sugar for a variety of reasons. Agave nectar is a real sugar, as opposed to an artificial or non-nutritive sweetener. It has properties similar to many sugars with one important exception: its glycemic index is significantly lower. This makes it a healthier alternative to many processed and natural sweeteners.

Ingredients:
1 1/4 CUPS SOFT BUTTER
1 CUP BROWN SUGAR, PACKED
2/3 CUP GRANULATED SUGAR
1/4 CUP CORN SYRUP (Subsitute agave nectar or honey for corn syrup to make these a healthier choice)

2 TSP VANILLA
3 CUPS FLOUR
1 1/2 TSP SALT
1 1/2 TSP BAKING SODA
1 PKG MILK CHOCOLATE CHIPS
1 CUP PECANS, COARSELY CHOPPED
1/3 PKG SKOR BITS



Directions:
Cream butter and sugars together, mix cream, syrup and vanilla in a seperate bowl. In another bowl mix together dry ingredients. Alternate adding cream and flour mixture to butter and sugar.
DROP FROM LARGE TBSP ONTO PARCHMENT LINED COOKIE SHEET. BAKE 350°F FOR 10-13 MINUTES.


ENJOY! :-)

Wellness Tip
Scheduling Exercise into Your Day
Getting enough exercise isn't always easy. It can be difficult to budget enough time into busy schedules. Some people make time by rising earlier in the morning, but that doesn't work for everyone. Others fit in a walk during a scheduled break in the day, for example, during a portion of the lunch hour. Stopping at a club, park or mall on the way home is another option that works for some people. Keep searching until you find one or more that work for you.

Roast Turkey with Apple, Sausage, and Herb Stuffing
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: Traditional roast turkey is still the dish of choice for most holidays and evokes images of celebrations with family and friends. This is the season for enjoying turkey.
Health Benefits of Turkey is that is a lean meat and is a very good source of protein. A four ounce serving provides 65% of the daily value for protein, along with 11% of the daily value for saturated fat, about half the amount of saturated fat found in red meat. The structure of the human body is built on protein. We use animal and plant sources of protein for our amino acids and rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require. Turkey is a very good source of selenium, B vitamin and niacin.
