Clean Eating Christmas Chip Dip – A very healthy and filling party dish!
It’s Christmas time which means lots of parties, reunions and get togethers. While there’s nothing wrong with healthy treats (such as Poppy Seed Bread, Secret Ingredient Hot Cacao and Last Minute Christmas Bark) it is also nice to bring something a little more filling from time to time. That’s one reason we love this Christmas Chip Dip! It’s very healthy, very filling and has pretty green and red colors. How can you beat that?!
Among many other benefits pomegranates help prevent heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and cell damage. They also bring the gorgeous red to this dish! Avocados are well known as a healthy fat and are the green in this glorious dish. We also found some green olives that are NOT marinated. They taste just like the black olives! If you can’t find any though you can of course use all black. The beans and rice are really what make it filling and bring good fiber. Put this with some organic corn chips or organic crackers and you have the perfect healthy snack.
