Mediterranean Mash: Step away from the traditional loaded mashed potatoes full of cream and other nutritional inhibitors. Purée 12oz of warm white cannellini beans (I used dry beans, soaked and cooked myself with salt), 1/4 cup EVOO, 2 heaping tablespoons of low-fat greek yogurt, and 1 1/2 tbsp raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. In the order of ingredients listed above you’ll be contributing this to your body: proteins, healthy fats, calcium and vitamin D digestion enhancers , potassium infused ailment fighters.

Bonus Recipe! Use the ingredients listed above (minus the garnishes), add artichoke hearts and crumbled goat cheese. Serve with pita chips and feel way less guilty than you would consuming a cream cheese based artichoke dip.
