Print Friendly 

Description:
Here is a surprisingly light and delicious cake that is sugar free. It is gluten free as well. Make the Honey Meringue to top it off and you have a wonderful dessert to serve your guests.
The 3 key health benefits of honey are related to the fact that:
1. Honey is nature's energy booster
2. Honey is a great immunity system builder
3. Honey is a natural remedy for many ailments
The health benefits of honey go beyond its great taste. A great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, honey is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue of athletes. Its natural sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar.

In a very small sauce pan simmer honey until it reaches soft-ball stage 245°.
Meanwhile beat the egg whites to soft peaks. While still beating, slowly add the hot honey. Continue beating until lukewarm and egg whites are firmer.
This frosting will not keep as it separates after sitting for a while. It is best used the first day. Great for those who cannot have dairy.

Wellness Tip
Fads Don't Fight Fat
Most health experts agree that people who lose weight with fad diets are rarely able to keep it off. You may also put yourself at risk for not getting enough nutrients. To help achieve a healthy weight loss, eat a well-balanced diet and participate in regular exercise. Limit your loss to between 1/2 and 2 pounds per week.

Recipe
Baked Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries
Category: Side Dishes
Description: This red and green side dish is the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas dinner.
Brussels sprouts are available year round; however, they are at their best from autumn through early spring when they are at the peak of their growing season. Cooking methods include boiling, steaming and roasting. To ensure even cooking throughout, buds of a similar size are usually chosen. Some cooks will cut a cross in center of the stem to aid the penetration. Whatever cooking method is employed, overcooking is avoided.
Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer.
