    I'd try this with cream cheese even, and instead of bread, spread it on celery or cucumber slices! - 10/12/13

    Very good! I added a little finely shredded italian blend cheese to kick it up a notch. Also might consider heating it. - 10/19/13

    This is a good start. To be the most healthy you need to ramp up the fiber and protein. I would use spinach, kale, and a protein powder made from plants.
    Whip it up and see what you have. Be creative. Just remember to get the protein and fiber count higher. - 10/12/13

  • This had a weird, overly sweet flavor. I doctored it up by adding the juice of half a lemon and some garlic powder, plus some low-fat cream cheese. It was better, but I won't be making this again. - 11/3/13
