Dips are an all-time snack favourite but all dips aren’t created equal when it comes to weight loss plans.
Many prepacked dips and dips available at restaurants as entrees contain high amounts of calories due to the cream, sour cream and oils used to make them, making them poor choices when you’re trying to lose pregnancy weight.
These six dips are super simply to make, and are packed with nutritious, low-calorie ingredients like vegetables, lemon juice, fresh herbs and reduced-fat cheese.
Whip these easy dips up as a treat for the family or when entertaining friends. They are a much more nutritious alternative than store bought, high calorie dips!
