It's A Wrap: A New Way To Enjoy The Goodness Of Grapes

(NAPSA) - It's no coincidence that the words "grape" and "great" sound alike. The grape offers great potential for flavorful and healthy eating.

Grape Chicken Caesar Wrap
Grapes are loaded with phytonutrients-biologically active substances that come from plants and have beneficial effects on health-such as resveratrol, quercetin, anthocyanin and catechin. Research studies have shown that resveratrol, found primarily in the skin of grapes, has antioxidant properties and may help increase HDL (good) cholesterol and reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol. Resveratrol is also believed to have other heart-health benefits that may help reduce disease risk, as well as anti-inflammatory properties.

Not only are grapes good for you but they're delicious, whether you eat them as a snack or use them in a recipe. That's one reason grapes were chosen as a Weight Watchers(r) Pick of the Season food. Being "Pick of the Season" means the weight-loss organization will feature tasty ways to enjoy grapes in its quarterly series of recipes.

The following recipe for Grape Chicken Caesar Wrap offers a mouthwatering way to savor the flavor of grapes.
