How to of the Day
How to Hang Christmas Cards
As the holiday season gets closer, you may start getting Christmas cards in the mail from your family and friends. Although these thoughtful pieces of mail are a great reminder of your loved ones, they can start to clutter up your living space if you try to display them all standing up. You can put together some simple crafts using supplies from your own home to quickly hang up all of your Christmas cards in a single afternoon.
How to Cook Turkey Wings
If you like chicken wings, you'll love delicious and savory turkey wings! They’re relatively easy to cook, but because they take longer to cook than chicken wings, your best bet is to use your oven to bake or braise them. Once they’re cooked, you can coat them in pretty much any sauce you like as well. With a little prep work and some patience, you’ll be munching on delicious turkey wings before you know it.
How to Celebrate Thanksgiving Alone
Although Thanksgiving is typically thought of as a holiday enjoyed with family and friends, many people celebrate it alone, whether by choice, necessity, or circumstance, like what we are currently experiencing, the COVID-19 Pandemic. No matter the reason, you can still have a wonderful, fun, and relaxing Thanksgiving when you’re by yourself.

How to Do Wide Pushups
If you’re looking for a straightforward exercise that requires no equipment and works a range of muscle groups, try the humble pushup! A slight variation, the wide pushup, engages your chest and shoulders a bit more and is no more complicated to do. Just make sure to maintain your form, go slowly, and listen to your body so you don’t hurt your shoulders.

Low-Cholesterol Recipes: Homemade Pickled Ginger (Gari)

4.76 / 5 Stars | 21 Reviews

by Phoena

"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends."

Raw Food Diet: Avocado Mango Salsa

4.8 / 5 Stars | 145 Reviews

by Six Pack To Go

"Yowzers! Sweet and hot salsa with tangy mangoes and habaneros. Great with pork, chicken or fish or just with chips. You can omit the habaneros and add red bell peppers for a non-spicy version, but then again, why would you want to? Remember, ALWAYS wear gloves when working with habaneros!"
