Weight loss isn’t about giving up delicious foods. You can still enjoy a snack with a dip while watching TV in the evening without feeling guilty.
Here, we’ll share seven easy dip recipes that won’t hurt your weight loss regime.
French Onion Dip
Traditional French onion dip is high in calories, but you can always replace a few ingredients to make a healthier version of your favorite foods. Mix Greek yogurt, whipped cream cheese, dried onion flakes, garlic powder, and some Worcestershire sauce until smooth.
Layer black beans, Greek yogurt, ground turkey, mashed avocado, salsa, and black olives in a glass for a healthy yet delicious party dip for tortilla chips.
Avocado hummus is high in fiber and fatty acids that keep you full and help with weight loss. This healthy snack from chickpeas and avocado is ideal for a tortilla chip evening snack or as an addition to an omelet for breakfast.
You’ll need tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapeno, and some lemon or lime juice. Roast the vegetables, mix them in a food processor, and add the juice. Pulse the mix until smooth and serve with tortilla chips.
This hot and spicy dip is ideal for a healthy taco dinner or as a snack with corn chips. Mix garlic, avocados, onion, jalapeno peppers, lemon juice, chopped cilantro, and add some salt to taste. Mash until smooth.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dip
Even sweet dips can be weight loss friendly. Mix low-fat Greek yogurt, a bit of honey and peanut butter, vanilla extract, and, of course, chocolate chips – preferably dark chocolate. Eat with pretzels or mini cookies for a cheat day or with a spoon without add-ons for a healthy snack.
Spinach Artichoke Dip
Spinach and artichokes are low in calories and high in vitamins, thus perfect for weight loss. Add moderate amounts of olive oil, butter, and cream cheese for a delicious and healthy dip. Serve with crisp bread instead of nachos that are high in sodium and fat.
