Avocado Dip Recipe

Many patients who go through weight loss surgery decide to change their lifestyle and start making wiser decisions about their eating habits.

The food you eat can affect your health and your risk for certain diseases. To eat healthier food, you may need to change some of your daily routine.

You don’t need to make huge changes to eat healthier. And you don’t have to change your habits all at the same time. It’s best to set small goals and change your habits a little bit at a time. Over time, small changes can make a big difference in your health.  The journey through weight loss surgery can be very rewarding and fun while learning new recipes.

Here is one healthy recipe that could help you reduce calories and fats:

I call this avocado dip “light and easy” because it so easily complements just about any light summer dish that I’d be silly not to share the recipe with you.
