Healthy Spinach Dip #GayLeaMom

You may have noticed my trend of healthier living lately.  Between increasing my water intake, and drastically increasing my activity level, I’ve been making better lifestyle choices all around.   So when I had the chance to come up with a recipe using Nordica Cottage Cheese, I was very excited. I love spinach dips whenever I go to a party, but I know that they aren’t very healthy. So I decided to try to make a healthy spinach dip. 

It turns out that making a dip with cottage cheese is so easy, not to mention healthy! Nordica Cottage Cheese is low in fat and has calcium, Vitamin D and protein. It’s also gluten- and nut-free, certified Kosher, and available in Fat Free, 1%, 2%, 4% and Lactose Free.

1 tub (500 g) Nordica Cottage Cheese (I used 1 %)

2 Tbsp Mayonnaise

1 c. frozen spinach, thawed

1/2 a small onion, very finely diced

1/4 tsp each salt and pepper

1. Puree the cottage cheese in a food processor. It will become a thick, creamy consistency.

2. Pour all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir until combined.

I live in Bowmanville, and am a mom to four young boys - it can get a little loud in my house. I am a Christian, a part-time French teacher, a piano teacher and former homeschooler. I love finding the best deals, which will come in handy when our boys become hungry teenagers! We just moved to a house with more outdoor space, and I'm still getting used to life in the country (a walk around the block is a lot longer here!).
