Summertime surrounds us with delicious food that may not be good for us. Between the potato chips, blueberry pie and greasy burgers, there is definitely some room for lightened up tasty food at your next backyard BBQ. The trick to serving better for you food isn’t totally getting rid of the high calorie, high fat favorites, but to find ways to make them better for you! For example, take my family-favorite Spinach Dip recipe, that is traditionally made with mayonnaise. Instead, make it with Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt. You get all of the flavor, with much less fat and calories (plus an extra punch of protein too!).
1 cup Stonyfield Organic Greek Plain Yogurt
1 package of dried vegetable soup mix
1 box of frozen chopped spinach, drained
1 1/2 cups low fat sour cream
1. Thaw and drain the chopped spinach & squeeze out excess water in a cheesecloth.
2. Mix together all ingredients and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Serve with your favorite tortilla chips (we love Late July Sea Salt by the Seashore Multi-Grain Chips) or fresh veggie sticks.
