PCOS-Friendly Snack: Rosemary White Bean Dip
by Amy Medling, founder of PCOS Diva
I love this Italian inspired dip. This appetizer is a favorite at my girlfriend gatherings and family celebrations.
Like hummus, white bean dip packs a nutritional punch with tons of protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber in a tasty package! The olive oil adds the healthy fat your body needs.
