Delicious Dips

I am the worst for eating healthily. The worst! I snack constantly; I eat out too much; I have a sweet tooth; I don't eat enough fruits and vegetables ... the list goes on and on. I know I need to watch what I eat a lot more than I do, especially since my family has a history of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

I'm actually getting a little better at snacking on things like nuts and raisins at work versus cookies and other sweet things. Recently, I made a fantastic discovery at the Sainsbury's near my office: their beetroot and sesame dip. I bet this is super unhealthy as well, but dunking a Ryvita multi-seed flatbread thin into this divine dip is the tastiest mid-morning snack. For me, the fact that it's a savory versus sweet snack is already a huge improvement.

Do you get the munchies throughout the day? What do you snack on at work?


  1. I'm trying to get away from sweets, too. It's a tough business... I'm currently on a chipotle hummus kick, though. Hooray for chickpeas!!! :D

    1. I'm intrigued by the chipotle hummus - it sounds amazing! Where can one acquire this said hummus??

    2. In London, I unfortunately have no idea. I'm still in the States. But I'll be moving to England in September! If I discover a chipotle hummus utopia when I get there, I'll leave its coordinates in a comment here :)

    3. How exciting (about your move, I mean, rather than the hummus - though the hummus is also very exciting)! Good luck with the move!
