To kick off the New Year on the right foot, there are a couple of party staples any host needs: a countdown, cocktails, and good company. But if you really want to get the new year started off on the right foot, you’ll not only provide great-tasting foods, you’ll provide dishes that are healthy, too. There are plenty of simple dips that you can make for your party that are tasty and healthy. Just try any of these easy recipes:
Although guacamole has quite the calorie count, it is composed of healthy fats from the avocado. The great thing about guacamole is how easy it is to make it your own — with various flavor combinations including fresh diced fruit or diced jalapenos, the possibilities are endless.
Choose a bean, mash it up, add some spices and diced vegetables, and you’re good to go. Drizzle some olive oil into it to smooth out the texture and surround your dip with pita chips and diced vegetables. It’s an instant party favorite under 100 calories per serving, and packed with protein and antioxidants.
