In the past I have always tried to eat as healthy as possible or “healthy” as I thought. My Aunty and Dad would always tell me not to be afraid to add oil to my diet and to stay away from low fat foods, but I didn’t listen. All the marketing hype low fat was the way to go. It is only in the last two years that I’ve realised my Dad and Aunty were right. I now use good oils and have stopped eating low fat foods – they are full of hidden sugars.
This dip would be something I avoided in the past because of the oil content and nuts. However, this dip contains good fats that your body needs and it also taste awesome. It’s even better when you make it yourself, as you know what is added to it, using good quality ingredients. I’m not saying to eat a bowl full but a tablespoon or two added to your dish will make it sweet as.
Dips don’t only have to be eaten with crackers or cheese, I like to add a dollop to a piece of chicken or a tablespoon mixed through my salad. There are endless ideas you can use this dip for, which will give an extra burst of flavour to your meals. Remember we all want our food to taste delicious and adding these extra flavour will leave your taste buds wanting more. The peri peri spice gives it a good kick.
