Fat Blasting Vegetable Dip

Updated on August 11, 2013

The Problem:

You know that you need to eat more raw vegetables to be healthy, you've been told this a million and one times; however, you can't choke down that carrot or tomato without slathering it in salad dressing or veggie dip.

Here's a guilt-free veggie dip recipe that will make you come back for more!

The Dip:

The Recipe:

Ingredients:

- Low-Sodium Yellow Mustard

- Apple Cider Vinegar ( the darker the better! )

- Cayenne Pepper Seasoning

- Cajun Seasoning

- Black Pepper

The base for this is a yellow mustard and apple cider vinegar mix. When you first begin to use this recipe, I suggest using equal parts mustard and apple cider vinegar. As you become more accustomed to the taste of apple cider vinegar, slowly add more apple cider vinegar to reduce the level of sodium you'll be consuming.

Stir the apple cider vinegar and mustard slowly until it becomes a consistent yellow. It will look clumpy at first, but with continued stirring you'll get a nice consistent color and texture.

Add in Cayenne Pepper, Black Pepper, and Cajun Seasoning to taste. As you become accustomed to these spices, add more.

Serve in a condiment dish and enjoy your favorite raw vegetables guilt free!

How It Works:

Let's begin with the base of mustard and apple cider vinegar. Mustard is a great substitute for most condiments as it is zero calories and has fat-blasting bonuses in and of itself, however the high level of sodium will make you want to reduce it's presence in this dip as you continue to use it.

Apple Cider Vinegar detoxes the body and is considered a metabolism booster. There are also some claims that it aids the immune system. It adds acid to your digestive system to allow you to digest foods more efficiently. The acid allows your body to make the most of the protein that you eat and flushes the fat!


Spicy seasonings are also metabolism boosters. The spicier, the bigger the boost! The cayenne pepper increases the body temperature which allows you to burn calories more effectively. In addition, spicy foods are more difficult to eat and so you'll eat them slower, fill up faster, and feel fuller longer.
