Savory Goat Cheese Veggie Dip

Hi! How’s the afternoon going?

It’s been a great day with my little sidekick. 🙂

Liv and Me Selfies

This morning involved playing birthday fairy, which involved a solo trip to the mall. It was luxurious to smell candles with both hands,

Tons of candles

and I loved picking up a couple of birthday surprises for the little lady. (PS all she asked for for her birthday was a Tiana princess dress, and turns out they’re very hard to find!) 

Breakfast: eggy oats

Eggy oats

(1/3 cup oats cooked in water with an egg + 4 egg whites cracked in; added frozen berries, cinnamon, almond milk, Stevia and a blob of almond butter)

and I introduced Liv to this glorious combo for a snack: popcorn with cinnamon and chocolate chips.

This afternoon with lunch, we also shared a veggie platter with the current favorite dipping sauce: this savory creamy goat cheese dip.

I had a block of goat cheese in the fridge, and instead of crumbling it for eggs and salads per the usual, I decided to switch it up a bit.

It went into the food processor along with some almond milk, spices, and a squeeze of lemon juice, and It also makes a delicious creamy salad dressing!

Here’s the recipe if you’d like to give it a whirl.

What’s your fave salad dressing or veggie dip? I love Goddess dressing -please let me know if you have a recipe to make it at home!- and have been making this Maple-Dijon vinaigrette quite a bit lately.

Time to get ready for training + Zumba!

    This dip looks great as does you oats recipe! Just wrote down how to re-create it. My go-to dressing is usually olive oil and balsamic or apple cider vingerar. I also add spices to make it more flavorful if I am in the mood for something different.

    Love the popcorn snack! My parents for a few years now have been putting goobers (chocolate covered peanuts) in their popcorn for movie nights and I’ve never known anyone to do anything close to it! Also love goat cheese, will be trying the dip!!!!!!!

    By the way – love the book!!!!!!!!!

    You ladies are so cute with your curly tongues! My fave dip is an Asian-inspired one that I make with chickpeas, lots of ginger, tamari, rice vinegar and chili flakes… sort of like Asian hummus I guess, but thinner!

    • Fitnessista on January 7, 2015 at 11:25 pm

      haha thanks!
      that sounds amazing!!

  7. Linda @ the Fitty on January 7, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    I don’t like goat cheese.
    I want to try this but I’m really weary of it.

  8. Eli Bush on January 7, 2015 at 7:11 pm

    Wow goat cheese sounds interesting! Happy birthday to your princess, she so pretty. 🙂

  9. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on January 7, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    I like to dip in hummus. I could dip pretty much anything in hummus! 🙂

    I make my eggy oats exactly like you! It’s one of my favorite breakfasts!

  11. Courtney Bentley on January 8, 2015 at 1:12 am

    Yum! I make my husband eggy oats every morning its the perfect carb/protein combo! Thanks for sharing xo C

  12. Jess on January 8, 2015 at 4:04 am

    Liv is so cute! 3 how exciting! One of my daughters loves Tiana too, hope you found the dress 🙂

  13. Ali on January 8, 2015 at 6:24 am

    Nom Nom!!!! I was ready planning to make your delicious “Nestle” protein bars, I guess I’ll be going back to the store later to make this dip too! I’m always looking for new ways to change up salad dressings, I tend to get in a rut! Thanks for such great recipes, you are my go to recipe gal!

  14. Annette on January 8, 2015 at 7:36 am

    DUMB question: I’ve never had/made eggy oats. I have celiac and will make mine with gluten free oats. But the egg part… do you add the eggs while the oats are cooking? or cook them separate? or add them raw (ewww, but i hear some peeps like raw)

  15. Meg on January 8, 2015 at 9:00 am

    Did you check on Amazon for the dress? Just did a quick search and they have plenty of options!

    And if you’re looking for REALLY good candles, check out Bath & Body Works. Yum!

  16. Mary on January 8, 2015 at 6:15 pm

    Also wondering how long to cook or microwave the oats so the eggs are done?
    Loving the book. I started to bookmark recipes I want to try and decided marking every page is ridiculous 🙂
    Instead I just marked where each meal starts. Now if the weather would improve so I could get to the store. Gotta love Iowa in the winter.

    • Fitnessista on January 8, 2015 at 6:25 pm

      it takes a couple of minutes, and make sure to stir continuously
      so so happy you’re enjoying the book! hope you can get out of the house soon!! have a great night <3

    This looks amazing! I don’t know why but I’ve been craving dips lately.
