Spinach Artichoke Dip
We all know spinach is good for us, but artichokes deserve some of the glory, too. Aside from great taste, artichokes are a fabulous source of fiber, providing about 10 grams per cup. They’re also a good source of folate, which helps your cells regenerate and protects your ticker.
Try Joy’s guilt-free Spinach Artichoke Dip with a batch of crunchy, colorful veggies for dunking.
Pumpkin pie has a pretty significant health attribute—pumpkin. The delicious dessert provides beta-carotene for vibrant skin and healthy joints, as well as digestion-friendly fiber and heart-smart potassium. Plus, it tends to be lower in calories, fat and sugar than its apple and pecan rivals.
