Let it be zucchini this time. Why not zucchini? A favorite among low-carb dieters and anyone who wants to lose weight fast, zucchini is high in essential nutrients like potassium, manganese, and vitamin C & A. Any doubts that zucchini is a nutrient booster?

Garlic contains powerful detoxing agents to help rid the body of toxins. It can be used to help treat the common cold, reduce inflammation, and more. Some research shows that garlic even contains anti-cancer properties (1, 2, 3, 4).

Thyme is packed with numerous health benefits, including phytonutrients, minerals and vitamins. It contains a good amount of antioxidants, which can be used to help fight inflammation and ward off chronic disease. Not to mention, adding spices like thyme to your dish is a great way to flavor food while adding nutrition (5, 6)!

Don’t think of cream cheese as just a dairy product. It is a combination of fat, protein, sodium, vitamins A, B-9 and B-12. Plus, cream cheese is a great addition to any low-carb dish. It instantly adds creaminess and thickness.

This spread would be a great dip to bring to your next get together or serve at the next family gathering. You don’t even have to tell your guests that it’s low carb! You can serve it as is or with your favorite low-carb veggies to dip in. It would also make a great topper for your favorite burger or piece of fish.
