Do you have favorite dip recipe but know it’s packed full of naughty ingredients?
Jay’s mom makes this killer dip that Jay loves and it’s vegetarian. When we got home he wanted me to make it again and texted me the recipe. Sour cream and mayo – no wonder it was so good. He made me promise not to make it healthy but I couldn’t help myself.
I knew he’d eat most of the dip while watching Sunday football so I played around making it a bit healthier.
Halftime hit and I handed him a big tray of veggies and his mom’s famous dip. Of course I didn’t tell him I changed the recipe….waited for a reaction….and he couldn’t tell. Success!
This version swaps Greek Yogurt for sour cream which adds protein and cuts the mayo.
A word on bacon bits. A big part of the the Embrace Wellbeing lifestyle is moderation and not being too restrictive. Bacon bits are vegan but are made with some suspect ingredients and are highly processed. They would not be something I’d recommend eating regularly. You can always keep them out and add paprika and bread crumbs to mimic the texture and taste or cut up organic bacon instead.
