|Yogging and happy apple- together at last.|
I got to thinking about spreads and dips. They are usually so fattening or unhealthy. But are there healthy dips/spreads out there? In reading my daily does of Glamour.com, I came upon an article about Herb Spread.
Anyone that knows me well knows that, that when I get an idea about something, I run with it. Right. Away. I got excited about low-cal spreads. I perused the World-Wide Web for about an hour, and came up with this little listy of yummy-looking, healthy spreads:
- Low Calorie Fruit Spread (this is SUCH a boring name...)
- Fluffy Vanilla Pumpkin Dip
- Roasted Eggplant Spread
- Poor Man's Caviar
- Tuscan White Bean Spread
- Classic Hummus
- Smokey White Bean Spread with Roasted Garlic and Basil
- Roasted Garlic, Feta, and Walnut Dip
- Fire-Roasted Corn Dip
Cream cheese is probably the most common base for a dip. Who wants to consume all those cals? Not me. You can always substitute it with plain yogurt (get Greek for a thicker consistency) or blended cottage cheese. Hurray! I am excited. I want to eat all of these dips and spreads. Right now. You should to. Go. Do it.
