I think you would be hard pressed to find someone these days who is not busy. We’re ALL busy. The problem that arises, however, is that when we’re busy our choices for food become based on what is most expeditious and not necessarily what is healthiest. It does not have to be so, however.
Here is a recipe for a dip that takes literally 5 minutes to make. 5 minutes. We all have 5 minutes, right? If you are on a journey to eat more real foods then a simple veggie dip is a great way to start. Here’s a list of ingredients from a popular veggie dip brand.
