I saw a meme in my instagram feed about a month ago that said, “When you realize summer is right around the corner…” and the picture is a Google search bar that says, “How to lose 30 pounds in 1 second.” Haha! That’s totally how I feel, but it’s okay. I’m all about moderation, or modifying recipes, and today’s recipe takes classic seven layer dip, and turns it into skinny seven layer dip with a few simple swaps.

This skinny seven layer dip starts with the usual – a bean layer (I did black beans instead of refried beans) and an avocado/guacamole layer. The next few layers are where the most modifications come in to make this seven layer dip better for you. I did non-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, shredded lettuce instead of shredded cheese, and then I piled on the veggies — tomatoes, cucumbers, and onion.

The results are a fresh, crunchy, flavorful, and satisfying party dip! Now you don’t want to ruin a wholesome dip like this with tortilla chips, so I served it with Harvest Stone® crackers because they are USDA organic, certified gluten-free and non-GMO. The Original Brown Rice, Sesame & Flax Crackers (pictured) are great, but there are lots of flavors to choose from that would be equally as delicious. They are crisp, with the right amount of saltiness, and I love that they are better for you.

So with the fourth of July and barbecue season upon us, don’t sacrifice your healthy lifestyle. Bring this dip and Harvest Stone® crackers to the party! Then you’re sure to have something nutritious to eat. I’m betting your friends will even like it too!
