Spinach Dip

It's almost the New Year everyone. I can't believe it. My 2012 year has been quite eventful. Just to think, in a few days, it will be 2013. I guess the world didn't end on 12/21/12. That's a good thing.

Anyway, I know that many of you are probably going to attend some sort of New Year party or celebrate the New Year in some way. So, why  not make something that is delicious AND healthy to celebrate?

I know for a fact that chips is a staple at parties. They're almost always there. So, why not dip it in something like Spinach dip? It would go great with pita chips. It's also good with any other type of chips and bread as well. It's great for parties. My sister says that this Spinach dip I made is good, which is saying something. She doesn't say anything about the food I make unless it's either terrible or if it's good, as in, really good. I received this recipe from my uncle but I modified it a bit. Here's the recipe.

  • 1/2 cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt (my uncle used sour cream but greek yogurt is a lot healthier)
  • 1/2 mayo (I used Smart Balance Light)
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked spinach, cooled
  • 1/2 of a 1.4 oz packet of vegetable recipe mix

  1. In a bowl, mix together the greek yogurt and mayo. 
  2. Mix in the vegetable recipe mix and the spinach. 
  3. Serve with chips, bread or with whatever you want. Enjoy. =)
I hope you guys enjoy this dip! It's delicious. 

So, as your probably know, I wrote a recent post in Spanish. What I basically said in that post is that from now on, I will have something called "Workout Wednesday" where I'll either talk about my workouts or share some fitness information I've learned. Also, I will write a post in Spanish every Saturday, since my friend said that I don't have any posts in Spanish (which is not true. I have some recipes that are totally in Spanish, like my alfajores and pan de muerto). 

Also, I've decided to to make meal plans for now on. It'll be hard but I know that it's easier to know what I will be eating and portion everything. It'll help with my weight loss goal too (it'll help with saving money too). I plan on losing 5 to 10 lbs. It's one of my New Year's resolution. I'll make a post about my New Year's Resolution later on.

I also went food shopping today with the family. Here's some things I got. 

Boca veggie burgers (around $9), craisins (I think around $9), hummus ($2.50), nonfat Greek yogurt ($4.99), Clif Bars (almost $19 for 24 bars, but limited flavors) and some other things that aren't listed. I also bought my regular multigrain rounds (4.99)  to make sandwiches with. I also plan on buying baby carrots to eat with the hummus and I plan on trying to make homemade almond butter with cocoa (a version of nutella).  I also have quinoa, oats and bought some sweet potatoes at the Asian store. I also found this at the Asian store: 


I can't believe I found shirataki at the Asian store! They are zero calorie noodles. I've cooked and eaten them before but it's been such a long time. They are a bit expensive though. It's like $1.70. 

Anyway, what are your plans for the New Year?
Do you make meal plans?
What's your most favorite food?


  1. Mmm <3 I love spinach in creamy sauces... Such a dip just must be delicious :)

    Well, I wish you luck in the New Year! I hope you'll achieve your goals :)

    My plans? Be happy. Smile. Be creative (also in the kitchen). Write more, paint more.

    Meals plans... Well, just eat healthy and as I wrote earlier, be more creative in the kitchen. I don't want to lose weight because I'm quite much underweight. :P
