|Spinach Scallion Dip|
Today's Tidbit: So of course on Superbowl Sunday I was craving a yummy dip; who can watch the Superbowl without dip?! Recently while flipping through the Jan/ Feb 2013 issue of Food Network magazine I happened upon their "Creamy Veggie Dip Recipe", on page 142. It sounded perfect, but I didn't have all the ingredients in the kitchen, didn't feel like going to the store and of course I was hoping to make a healthier, but still yummy, version of my own. The Spinach Scallion Dip pictured above was the result. Though I was sad we didn't have any Low Fat Cream Cheese or Neufchatel on hand to throw in, it actually was great without it; very zippy and creamy enough from the Yogurt. We loved it with Tortilla chips and I enjoyed it again the next day on a super yummy Whole Wheat Wrap with Roasted Chicken Breast and Roasted Red Peppers (pictured below); I actually ate this exact same sandwich two days in a row because it was so good. Check out the recipes below!

Nine Months ago I created this blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds and to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices look like that have helped me achieve and maintain my current weight, in hopes to help or motivate other normal people, like me, out there. I never skip meals and I have at least one snack every single day. After a lot of trial and error I figured out the healthy way to eat all day long, never be hungry and lose weight! I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too. It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!) into my day. I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through the above "Today's Tidbit". Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!
