Ever realize that it is Saturday night and that you have a party to go to in an hour, still need to get ready, and you’re supposed to bring a snack/appetizer/edible something-or-other, but you didn’t plan ahead and you have no idea what to make? You’re strongly considering stopping by the grocery on the way to the party, but it’s a little out of the way and with holiday traffic, you’ll probably be like 30 minutes late. “Fashionably late,” you tell yourself, but you know you’re just making excuses. Now you’re wondering if you should even bother going at all. Of course, then you start thinking about your friends who are throwing the party and you know they’ll be disappointed if you don’t show up, so of course you have to rally.Continue Reading
How can I even begin to describe the deliciousness that is this dip?! Let’s see…to start: it tastes like cheese. Blue cheese. It is super healthy and made with only 3 ingredients. It also compliments pretty much everything. Skinny Buffalo Chicken Wings? Put some dip on them. Veggies? Put some dip on them. Salad? Put some (dip) dressing on it. Ice cream? Put some…ok. That may be taking things a little too far. But really, this is great stuff!Continue Reading
The holiday season is full of so many parties and festivities to attend. I love seeing so much of my friends and family, but it can be difficult at times to feel like I am making good choices in terms of my health with such a spread of different appetizers and snacks at each event. This spinach artichoke dip is a choice that will give you confidence.
FOOTBALL FEVER! The season is starting and so are the tailgates! I love a good tailgate just as much as the next person, but I’ve always been hard pressed to find healthy recipes to go with all that fun. This 8-layer dip is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Why 8 layers? Well, because that’s my favorite number, of course! Feel free to add, subtract, or substitute layers based on your crowd’s (or just your) specific tastes, but keep in mind that will change the nutrition facts! Whatever you do, though, definitely use the 0% fat Greek yogurt. It is packed with protein and has none of the fat of sour cream. What a great substitution! I did a blind taste test on some friends and they had NO IDEA they were eating Greek yogurt!
