Trying to lose weight around the holidays? Or maintain a healthy weight? Think you have to deprive yourself of delicious food? Bah, humbug!
Here, 10 guilt-free, crowd-pleasing (they are all vegan and gluten-free!), holiday dips to enjoy this holiday season.
This Creamy Cashew Chive Dip is thick and creamy, rich and luscious, wonderfully flavorful, and goes well with anything.
Hummus is a healthy, gluten-free, vegan dip that is amazingly versatile and wonderfully delicious, but most hummus has a lot of oil in it. This version is just as tasty without the unhealthy oil.
We think this is the best guacamole. Give it a try and see if you agree.
Even low-fat sour cream gets more than 50% of its calories from fat, and much of that fat is saturated fat, which has been shown to be a contributor to heart disease, dementia, diabetes, and obesity. And some brands of low-fat sour cream include ingredients like gums, modified starch, and Propylene Glycol Monoester in it.
Vegan versions are not much better.
Broccoli-Avocado-Hummus Dip offers a delightful twist on ordinary hummus. It’s guacamole meets hummus. And it’s a great way to sneak some veggies in your day.
This nutrient-dense, healthier basil pesto saves you an average of 60 calories and 5 grams of fat (per 1/4 cup serving). And it is cholesterol-free!
A high in fiber, healthy dip – perfect for weight loss. In fact, it’s probably one of the healthiest dips you can eat.
Technically a dressing, but if you add just a little less water when you make it, you’ve got a luscious vegan Dill Dip (or Creamy Italian Dip) that’s healthy and slimming!
