Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole 

Print Friendly 

Description:
It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.

Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.


Ingredients:
16 cherry tomatoes, halved and seeded
(can use a mixture of red and yellow tomatoes)
½ Tsp. salt
Guacamole (see below)

Guacamole (for filled cherry tomato halves)
(Makes approximately 1 1/2 Cups)

The Doom Bias
What has been the predominant prophecy on the planet? History shows us that it’s the scenario of Armageddon, where humanity destroys itself. That was supposed to happen at the turn of the millennium, or the year 2000. Remember the big scary prediction of 2012? The prediction was that we wouldn’t make it to 2013, since it was “the end of time.” Obviously neither of these predictions happened, as we are now several years past those dates! However, it appears that our appointment with doom is still alive, and just keeps being delayed. Why does our doomsday clock keep changing? Have we actually entered a new reality? If so, why is everybody still waiting for the end? Why do we have this “doom bias?” Interested? Then read on (smile).

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…)
