Lighter Spinach Artichoke Dip and Whole-Grain Pita Chips

Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 45 minutes

We’ve made this typically rich appetizer lighter by upping the vegetables and using protein-rich Greek yogurt and reduced-fat Neufchatel cheese. Making homemade whole-grain pita chips is as easy as slicing bread; try this method once — and you’ll never buy the high-sodium, bagged chips again.

    A side by side nutritional value comparison with 7 Tablespoons of Trader Joe’s Spinach & Artichoke Dip. Trader Joe’s Dip: 158 calories, 10.5 g Total fat (7 g Saturated Fat), 35 mg cholesterol, 595 mg sodium, 7 g Total Carbs, 1.8 g Sugar, 7 g Protein. So, in summary, Trader Joe’s dip actually has less calories but more sodium. Essentially, both dips have similar nutritional profiles, so not sure how this recipe is considered “lighter.” Keep it real. If you’re going to eat bad food, don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s good for you by calling it “lighter” when it really isn’t. Just eat less of it and less frequently and keep moving.
