Woo hoo! You made it to the second week of your January Whole30! If you’ve been cooking along with my daily Whole30 blog posts, I’m guessing that you’re getting the hang of this cooking thing—but you’re also wondering how you can resist the temptation to swan-dive into a plate of gooey, cheesy nachos. Well, one answer is to make Whole30 veggie dips that you can keep in the fridge!
Yes, you can still enjoy incredibly delicious dips and spreads without reaching for a bag of chips or a greasy bowl of mozzarella sticks. Just wash and cut up a bunch of vegetables, people—it’s fast and easy.
I try to always keep a bunch of colorful, ready-to-eat crudités (a.k.a., raw, cut-up vegetables) in the fridge in clear glass containers; that way, I’ll actually see them whenever I peek in. Then, when if I feel a snack attack coming on, I can just dunk ’em in one of my classic flavor boosters for a perfectly healthy Whole30- and Paleo-friendly nibble. Bonus: They make for excellent (and super-easy) appetizers, too!
If you’re struggling to eat more vegetables, having these tasty veggie dips and spreads at the ready will exponentially increase your consumption of edible plant matter. So do what your mom always told you to do, and EAT YOUR VEGETABLES—starting with:
Keep ready-made nomtastic dips and spreads on hand to pair with fresh veggies, and you’ll always have something tasty to tide you over until your next meal!
Stay tuned tomorrow for my next January Whole30 post—especially if you’re freaking out about what to eat for breakfast while on a Whole30!
