GARDEN GREEK YOGURT DIP
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Greek Yogurt makes this dip feel like a rich, creamy treat, while adding beneficial probiotics to your snack! Over 80% of our immune system is regulated by the gut, so incorporating probiotic food sources into your daily plan is a great way to ensure the bacteria in your body is working to protect and regulate vs. wreak havok. Studies have shown eating foods rich in probiotics can lead to an improved immune response by increasing the body’s white blood cell count. Greek Yogurt is also a protein powerhouse, with at least 15g in a 6oz serving! Pair this dip with a plethora of fresh, crunchy vegetables to get the most volume with the least amount of calories. This concept of volumetrics can help you feel satiated with an abundance of foods, while keeping your intake in check! A great idea for your next social gathering—your friends will thank you for it!
