Creamy Dip

Steer clear of the mayonnaise and cheese-laden dips at the party and go for a healthier option. Creamy dips are often filled with hidden fat and calories, and the chips and crackers used to scoop them up can provide even more sodium, saturated fat, and calories.

Makeover Tip: Make your own creamy dips by pureeing white beans with onion, garlic, and Parmesan cheese and black beans with green chiles and cumin. The calories and fat are significantly slashed, plus you get a fiber boost with each serving. Use fresh veggies as dippers for a nutrient-rich way to scoop up your favorite dips.
