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)
1/4 CUP CREAM
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
Climbing
According to our fitness experts, a 150-pound person walking on a flat surface at 4 miles per hour burns roughly 4.7 calories/minute. Stair climbing burns more, from 8-12 calories per minute. Next time, try an experiment; take the stairs instead of the elevator! Every stair counts - only 5 stairs to the calorie. Not interested? Continue to walk; it's good for you too!

The Wisdom of a Spirituality-Based Science
During the last years of the Cold War, I had a front row seat as a senior systems designer in the defense industry to one of the most frightening times in the history of the world, and the thinking that led to it. During the last years of the most potentially lethal, yet undeclared, war in human history, the superpowers of the United States and the former Soviet Union did something that seems unthinkable to any rationally minded person today. They spent the time, energy, and human resources to develop and stockpile somewhere in the neighborhood of 65,000nuclear weapons — a combined arsenal with the power to microwave the Earth, and everything on it, many times over.

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.
