With the holidays approaching, I wanted to put together a few recipes and dips that are tasty and will not distract from healthy eating initiatives. Gatherings with friends and family are notorious for binge eating. I am VERY guilty of this. As a foodie, I look forward to these types of gatherings largely because of the food.
This recipe looks very decadent, but I have included a few ingredients to lighten it up some. I use reduced-fat cream cheese and plain, non-fat Greek yogurt, which is also great for a protein boost. This recipe is very low-carb and keto friendly.
If it is unrealistic for you to plan to only consume healthy foods during these times, I encourage you to seek out these type of recipes. The recipes provide the perfect balance.
