"It's NOT just about the food....it's personal!"

Spinach Artichoke Dip

When it comes to appetizers, one of the most loved is a hot spinach artichoke dip!  The problem is that every recipe out there calls for cream cheese and other not so healthy ingredients!  That all ends here and now!

This delish recipe is created using neufchatel cheese instead of cream cheese, which lowers the fat content right off the bat!  Served hot with my amazing gluten-free crackers this dip is sure to be a huge hit at your next party!

This amazing recipe can be found on page 15 of my Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie cookbook.   It’s just one of 52 deliciously healthy recipes that are diabetic friendly, heart healthy, lots of them are even gluten-free and vegan!  There’s something for everyone!  After all, EVERY day is a holiday!  Pick up your copy HERE.
