You know I love to take crowd-pleasing acidic dishes and turn them into alkaline, anti-inflammatory new favorites – especially when they contain lots of healthy fats and minerals.
This flavorful dip contains many of the foods that are best for your mental health, unlike the ingredients in traditional spinach artichoke dip. (Keep an eye out on Thursday for more of the best foods for your mental health and wellness!)
I’ve combined canned artichoke hearts because they’re so easy to use (choose organic) with raw spinach, white beans, cashews, lemons, and garlic for a zesty dip you’re going to want to make again and again.
Give it a try and let me know what you think over on Facebook.
