White Queso Dip (Kaufmann Diet Friendly)
Written by Erin Porter
Fifteen years ago, instead of sharing this homemade white queso dip recipe with you, I would still be eating a very unhealthy version in a restaurant paired with some unhealthy corn chips. If I hadn’t gotten sick from toxic mold, surely my diet would have gotten me sick. I ate nothing but foods that tasted good to me, with no regard for nutrition or what my body actually needed to heal. Now I make all of my old favorites at home and share them with you. I hope you enjoy my healthy queso dip made with real ingredients. I give you some tricks below to make it a low calorie queso.
If you are following the Kaufmann diet, this recipe is would be considered a Kaufmann 2 recipe or Phase 2 recipe.
Watch as I make Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bites on NBC’s morning show! We also discuss comparing ourselves to others, heart and gut health and so much more.
