Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is our featured Wine of the Week. The gold standard for New Zealand sauvignon blancs, Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc is the iconic wine that really put New Zealand on the map for this varietal. Wine Spectator gave this wine 92 points and wrote, “Tangerine, mango and citrus flavors are pure and focused, smooth, round and wonderfully refreshing, with peach, key lime pie, mineral and floral elements that really take off on the finish.” This is your chance to taste this stellar wine at a great price. $19.99, save $10
Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling
Another classic Easter wine is the Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. This is a perfect wine for a big holiday meal — so versatile with so many foods, including Easter ham. In fact, there is a little sweetness in this wine that goes nicely with the glaze on many hams. $5.99, save $4
Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages
For a light versatile red wine, we have the Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages. This is from the Gamay grape and is like a light Pinot Noir, another good pairing with ham or almost any meat. $8.99, save $6
A Good Egg
At the top on my list of perfect foods, eggs come loaded with an array of key nutrients. In a mere 70 calories per large egg, you get 6 grams of one of the best proteins available, heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, a host of vitamins and minerals (over 30 percent of your vitamin K needs — crucial in bone health), and specialty nutrients, including brain-boosting choline and eye-saving leutin. And don’t even think about not eating the yolk, because 40 percent of the protein, along with most of the vitamins and good-for-you nutrients, are in this golden globe.
As for cholesterol, sure, eggs are loaded, but don’t worry. While each egg contains about two-thirds of the recommended cholesterol budget for your day, studies show that eating eggs daily won’t kick up circulating levels of cholesterol. As scientists dissect the origins of heart disease, they now know it’s the amount of saturated and trans fats in your diet that impacts your risk, rather than how much cholesterol you get from food. You can also boost heart health by using omega-3 enhanced eggs, especially if you rarely eat fish as a source of these essential fats.
But do watch out for who your eggs keep company with on your breakfast plate! Opt for fresh fruit rather than bacon or sausage. You can also use eggs whisked into soups, or scrambled and wrapped into a burrito. Or try hard boiled eggs mixed with diced celery and fresh herbs for a nutritious sandwich spread.
