Move over sour cream…the Greeks are here and they’re healthy and delicious! “These days, I am consciously eating a higher protein diet and one of my go-to foods is nonfat, plain Greek yogurt,” says Chef Lea. “It has a thick, smooth texture like sour cream but it is high in protein, low in carbohydrates and zero fat!” Chef Lea’s new party dips using nonfat Greek yogurt are the alpha and the omega…give them a try and say bye, bye to unwanted calories without sacrificing any of the yum.
