Healthy Dip

Last weekend we had some company over (I am still kicking myself for not taking pics of the all the wonderful food that we prepared). But I did snag some pics of my newest creation. I made a huge plate of chopped up veggies, including broccoli, carrots and peppers and wanted a healthy dip for my guests. I bought one of these dip packets. Unprepared, I believe the packet contained 5 calories per serving. But making the dip according to the instructions (with sour cream), packed in tons of unhealthy calories.
So I figured, why not mix it with this instead?
I used 2 containers of 2% Greek yogurt and 1 tablespoonful of sour cream. It turned out amazing! I used 2% because I had guests and I was afraid the 0% would turn out too runny. Tasting it alone, it definatley didn't taste as great as the full-fat version. Nevertheless, when eaten with the veggies, you could barely tell the difference. It was a big hit.
I will definatley try out the 0% on my own. You can mix a whole container for yourself and a plate filled with veggies and have a healthy, well-balanced meal.
Right now I am cleaning the house top to bottom. It has been a little neglected lately. The laundry, kitchen, floors, counters, rugs, furniture dust and closets will all be tackled today.
Have a wonderful Monday!
