Sometimes you need to just get your dip on!!

Of course, you need to make sure you aren't shoveling a bunch of unhealthy things into your mouth with the dip on them — that's counter productive to having a healthy dip! So, make wise choices!!

Here's the healthy Greek yogurt loaded with nutrients, though:

Ingredients: 2 bunches fresh spinach, ½ cup water, 3 tbs. canola oil, ½ cup onion chopped, 2 cups Greek yogurt, 1 tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. black pepper and ¼ tsp. garlic powder.

Preparation: Wash spinach, drain and chop into coarse pieces. Cook in sauce pan with water for 5 min. Drain, then chill. In a small pan, simmer onions in oil, then add spinach. After onions are cooked, add yogurt, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir and chill. Serve with pita bread, carrot sticks or whole grain crackers.

Benefits of Spinach are: loaded with iron, vitamin K, vitamin C and potassium

Reasons Greek yogurt is good for you are: excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium

Magnesium is important for building and maintaining healthy bones and for keeping our blood circulating. It is also helpful for relaxing our nerves and our muscles. Be sure that you are getting enough magnesium in your diet by eating plenty of organic leafy green vegetables like Swiss chard, kale, collard greens, and spinach.

Eat Food That Keeps Your Bones Strong!

What good is a healthy body without strong bones? It's no good, that's what! If you'd like to eat more food that will strengthen your bones, Margaux J. Rathbun has some ideas:

Sticks and stones will break my bones….you know how the rest of it goes! Keep your bones healthy and strong by eating a diet full of authentically healthy foods. Bok choy and broccoli are good sources of calcium, a nutrient needed to keep our bones, teeth, and joints healthy. Avocados are a good source of vitamin K, a vitamin that is important in proper blood and bone function. The vitamin C in spinach helps keep our skin and mucous membranes healthy. Do you like organic tofu? Tofu is a good source of manganese, copper, and phosphorus, all of which are important minerals in promoting bone health.
