Homemade dip


According to the American Institute for Cancer Research:

  • Dips from markets are usually high in fat, calories and sodium
  • Commercial dips are low in health-protective phytochemicals
  • Homemade dips can help in maintaining weight
  • Homemade dips can be nutritious and cancer protective

With easy homemade dip recipes, you can create fresh, low fat, vegetable-based dips that are rich in flavor and healthier too. In fact, if you are a lover of herbs, you can prepare tasty herb dips.


Tasty Dips temptations

Unlike chutneys, sauces and cheese that are typically applied or sprinkled onto food, a dip as a sauce literally means dipping food items into the dip sauce. Get ready to master the art of preparing lip smacking homemade dips. Use your imagination, as creating tasty dips hardly demands any sort of culinary expertise. All it needs is creative use of ingredients. Dips are easy to make, quick to prepare and usually a hot favorite with all. Dips can be prepared and stored in the refrigerator - ideal for whipping up a tasty snack for hungry kids and unexpected visitors at home.
