audio package, .mp3
ANCHOR LEAD: Our moms are dear to our hearts so we should look after theirs. One way to do so is by making her a heart-healthy Mother's Day meal… something that's tempting for her taste buds and smart for her heart. (:59) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. If you're planning breakfast in bed for your mom this Mother's Day, Ellie Krieger, host of the Cooking Channel's "Healthy Appetite" has created some amazing recipes that are not only delicious but nutritious as well. Ellie, tell us about the recipes. CUT: (Krieger) I have these six wonderful recipes that are basically classic brunch made over: smoked salmon eggs benedict, whole grain waffles with strawberry rhubarb topping. I have a breakfast strata primavera, whole-grain apple oven pancake, savory crepes with shrimp and banana bread with a delicious chocolate drizzle. SCRIPT: These recipes sound so rich and enticing, how did you make them healthy? CUT: (Krieger) One simple swap made all the difference. I used canola oil in all of them. And this makes them very low in saturated fat and very rich in monounsaturated and omega 3 fats.
