It’s the end of January.  If you started working on a healthy lifestyle change on the first of the month, chances are that the shiny newness has worn off and it’s beginning to be a bit more difficult.  This weekend on Super Bowl Sunday, party tables everywhere will hold all sorts of snack foods, most of the unhealthy variety.  Some of the most popular (and most irresistible, in my opinion) are dips.  Usually creamy, melty, cheesy dips.  And yeah, they can be soooo good.  However, they are also one of the easiest ways to consume a lot of fat and calories at a pretty rapid rate.

Rather than toss aside all your efforts so far, consider this kale pesto white bean dip as an alternative.  A snack you can feel good about.  It’s creamy and fresh, chock full of vitamins and low in fat.  Serve with pita chips or fresh veggies and you may just find this nearly as addictive as all those other dips, but with a lot less guilt afterward.  Our whole family loves this and it’s sure to make many appearances at our kitchen table.
