Super Nutritious Game-Day Spinach Dip

Super Nutritious Game-Day Spinach Dip

spinach dip

Buffalo chicken, cheese dip, and beer—these typical game day flavors can't compare to this healthy and tasty raw dip. The fresh spinach, creamy avocado, plus the unique taste of curry powder makes it a refreshing combination of flavors. And since many Super Bowl party appetizers often feel heavy, this lighter option will really stand out in a crowd and help you keep up your energy for cheering on your favorite team.

By combining iron-rich foods (such as spinach) with food rich in vitamin C (such as the lime), your body better absorbs the iron. Add in the avocado and you get some additional vitamin C, fiber, and potassium. And the curry powder is known to be a strong anti-inflammatory. Delicious and nutritious—what's not to love?

You'll score points with everyone when you serve this curried spinach dip on game day!
