Answer: Bean Dip

Most bean dips are made with cheese, which brings extra calories and saturated fat. Guacamole’s main ingredient is avocado, which is full of monounsaturated, heart-healthy fat. But beware of store-bought guacamole, which can be made mostly with sour cream. “The real problem with dips is what you’re eating it with,” says Herrington. “I’d say stay away from the dip altogether because you’re going to eat it with tortilla chips.” Chips add an extra 140 calories and 7 grams of fat per 1-ounce serving (that’s only seven chips!). If you must indulge in a little dip, use cut-up veggies to scoop your guacamole and you score a few points with the nutrition experts. Just don’t go overboard with the dipping.
