SO interesting to read the WIDE range of opinions regarding weight-loss surgery. As I learn more and get time to visit with more patients who are electing to undergo lap banding, I will share with you what I learn. I think it is a controversial topic with a lot of valid arguments for and against. Thanks for sharing your $0.02 with us!
My hubby is SO good about trying new things, so when he requests something from the Prevention RD kitchen, I oblige. Usually…
Last night, nitrate-free turkey bacon BLT’s with sweet potato chips…
Ezekiel 4:9 toasted with Sabra hummus, avocado slices and the traditional (turkey) bacon, tomatoes, and lettuce (arugula)…yum!!!
Tonight was a bit of a gluttonous, against-my-better-judgement splurge: Buffalo Chicken Dip. Our college basketball team is playing, so I caved for game time munchies!
Buffalo Wing Dip
1 package (8 oz) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened
1/2 cup fat-free ranch dressing
1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 cup shredded reduced-fat Colby Jack cheese blend or reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped green onions (2 medium)
Whole grain crackers or celery sticks, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in dressing, buffalo wing sauce and water until blended. Stir in chicken and cheese. Spread in ungreased 1-quart baking dish or 9-inch pie plate; cover with foil.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Stir and top with onions. Serve hot with crackers or celery sticks.
Serves 12 or more

I served the dip with Dr. Krackers, celery, and whole grain tortilla chips. Yum! Happy hubby tonight! 😀
Is this “healthy”? It’s sure a step up from Buffalo Wild Wings! Is this an every day splurge? No, but it may be a good one for Super Bowl Sunday! 😉
It’s a husband-pleaser and a crowd-pleaser, anyways!
