Creamy Citrus Fruit Dip | creamy fruit dip with a touch of three different citrus fruits to give it the yummiest flavor – everyone will love this fruit dip!Being a food blogger is hard sometimes. I love food and I love eating. So naturally, when I make new treats and things, I want to eat all of them!
I recently bought this darling red bikini online. I was super excited about it because I haven’t bought a swimsuit in two or three years. I usually wear an old one or something and they’re all getting worn out. I’m heading to MIAMI next month for the BlogHer Food Conference and want a super cute swim suit to lay out with!
So anyway, I got this bikini in the mail yesterday. My husband, who’s off work on vacation this week, was anxious to see it on me (haha!). So I tried it on and the top fit perfectly. The bottoms however, not as comfy. Nothing like a good muffin top to ruin your day!
So I’m in a dilemma. Do I return/exchange the small size for one size up or do I keep them and diet my little pants off to fit into them?
I’m choosing the latter.
I work out most days of the week so the only thing to really change up, is my eating. I despise dieting. I used to be really super thin before I had my last two boys and looking back, I remember being unhappy because there was no choice or freedom with it.
It was 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, measured out with 6 raw almonds for a snack. 3 egg whites for breakfast…etc. Blah. Boring. You know what I mean? Everything methodically counted and measured. I need variety and sustenance! And I do eat pretty darn healthy usually so I think I’m just going to start with eating more fruits and vegetables.
While I like plain ‘ol raw fruit, sometimes it helps me to eat a little something sweet with it for a treat. At nighttime when I want a bowl of ice cream, instead I’ll cut up an apple and eat that with a little bit of this dip and it takes care of that sweet craving with a whole lot less calories.
This fruit dip is probably my favorite dip next to my mom’s yogurt dip I make a lot. It’s light, creamy and has this amazing citrus flavor that screams summertime. And it really does help me eat more fruit.
I used light cream cheese, fat free Cool Whip and low fat yogurt to make it a bit healthier. It’s absolutely delicious!
