Food Friday: Spinach Artichoke Blender Dip

Another new weekly installation from TAT.  For someone like me that strive to follow a Bulletproof-esk diet all week and eat plenty and eat well I still get those cravings to go ahead and cheat a little bit.  What we hope to do with this installment is give you some fantastic ideas for food over the weekend that allows you to do something different without blowing your hard earned results out of the water.  Enjoy the recipes and if you have ideas or want to see something specific please contact us at

Artichoke and Spinach Blender Dip
Serves 2-3
-1/2 yellow onion
-3 gloves garlic, chopped
-1/2 Tbsp olive oil
-1/2 bag baby spinach
-1 can artichoke hearts or 4 fresh artichoke hearts, cooked and quartered
-1/2 container Boursin cheese (French herb cheese) or herbed cream cheese
-1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-Pita chips or baked tortilla chips

Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and olive oil, and cook until light brown. Add spinach and stir until wilted. Add artichoke hearts, Boursin and mozzarella; stir lightly until cheeses melt. Pour mixture into a blender and pulse until well chopped, adding a splash of water if it doesn’t blend right away. Serve immediately with pita chips or backed tortilla chips

*After doing the Bulletproof Diet for about 5 weeks (usually 4 days good, 3 days with some "cheating") I'm down 11+ pounds of pure fat (muscle mass stayed the same).  Been a pretty good ride so far and feeling much better.  Any questions please contact us and we can fill you in on the Bulletproof Diet as well.
