I never buy storebought dips/creams/sauces, except for maybe salsa. I always assumed that things like tzaziki, artichoke or spinach dip, and the like were super high in calories. I even started making my own hummus instead of buying it.
A little while ago I was browsing recipes and saw one for tzaziki - and had instant enlightenment when I saw that its main ingredient is plain greek yogurt!
I made a batch last night, and it was absolutely fantastic. And, it also solved a problem that I've been having with eating too much fibre and not enough protein. Since it's greek yogurt, it's higher in protein, and now I can dip my veggies in it, filling up on the tzaziki, and eating less vegetables (therefore a little less fibre).
And, on top of it being my new best friend, it takes less than ten minutes to make.
