Expert Tips

  • “Yoga has been very good for me; I’ve become stronger and more flexible from it. Best of all, it has a comforting effect on my mind and is a comfort to my soul. Another thing that’s important for me is to have a creative outlet, and preparing this easy recipe does it for me.” Sherry L.
  • Many dips made with sour cream or mayonnaise are high in fat. Using beans as a base for this dip keeps the fat low and gives you the added benefit of fiber. For more fiber and added nutrients, dunk carrot and celery sticks or green bell pepper slices into this dip. You can also use pita wedges or crackers for dipping; just check the label for the amount of fat and calories.
