HEALTHY CREAMY SALSA DIP RECIPE

I’m seriously kicking myself for not thinking of this guilt-free, delicious snack sooner. At only 5 ingredients and all of 3 minutes to prep, it’s something everyone can make!

So, I love the football/fall season we are in but not because of the sport or cooler weather haha. I enjoy the atmosphere it creates in the home on Sunday.

I’s relaxed. There’s chili cooking on the stove. I’m cuddled under a blanket surrounded by my family. Football is on the television. I’m not watching but likely perusing Instagram or filling my online shopping cart with items I’ll probably never purchase haha. And, there are delicious snack sprawled across the table.

I’m all about eating treats on occasion and enjoying that healthy balance. BUT, I’ve also found there are a lot of ways I can enjoy snacks that are still healthy. This is one of them! Seriously, I think I’m making this for every party I host. I hope you and all your guests enjoy it as much as my friends and family have!

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup salsa

1 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp ground cumin

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients

2. Refrigerate for 1 hour so the flavors blend. Serve with tortilla chips or vegetables.

HEALTHY YOGURT TOAST RECIPE

If you haven’t had yogurt toast before, you’re in for a real treat with this one! PB Toast has been one of my breakfast staples for as long as I can remember… I’ve been eating it for so long that I can recall my mom making it for me day after day before I headed off to school as a youngster lol. Anyways, I’ve always been a toast in the AM type of gal.

 I’m also sure to include protein with my toast. To share another something about my mom… she was huge on us having protein for “brain power” before school haha. I guess that stuck with me. I’ll do a protein shake, eggs or greek yogurt with my toast, which is what made me think to top my toast with… yogurt!

It then evolved into adding chopped fruit, shredded coconut and chocolate because why the heck not haha.

This is just a personal little goal of mine… I’ve also been trying to add in extra beneficial foods like flax to my smoothies or in this recipe, I added acai powder. If you want to stretch yourself to try it too, go ahead! But, this recipe is still great without it!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup blueberry or flavored Greek yogurt

2 tsp acai powder

2 slices Ezekiel bread (or bread of choice)

1/2 cup chopped strawberries

2 tbsp dark chocolate chips

1 tbsp shredded, unsweetened coconut

INSTRUCTIONS

 

In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and acai powder

Toast bread lightly. Spread yogurt mixture between slices.

Top with strawberries, chocolate and coconut.
