So this past weekend, I tried to make some better choices come to find out they weren’t much better, LOL.
I really wanted taco dip, but figured that the store bought one would be too many calories, plus it didn’t say on it so I couldn’t be sure. Then I tried making my own taco dip and thought it would a “healthier” version, which I’m sure it was, however I was in shock after we ate it and then I tracked it in myfitnesspal.com account. The sodium was out of this world. I made one batch, but it ended up being way more than I thought so I split it into two pans that we would all be sharing. Well it was 900 calories, however here’s the kicker, the sodium was over 5,000 mg. Yikes, talk about water weight city.
I made it with Fat-free cream cheese, Fat-free sour cream, low-fat cheese, fresh tomatoes, shredded lettuce and one packet of taco seasoning. It was delicious, but I just couldn’t imagine that it had that much sodium in it. Plus I didn’t even factor in the chips I used to eat it with.
