Here's a satisfying and slimming snack that can be a dip or a spread: Beans and avocado are loaded with filling fiber—and the oleic acid in olive oil may trigger tummy hormones that increase the feeling of fullness between meals.

How to Make It

Rinse and drain kidney beans and place in the bowl of a food processor. Add yogurt, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, pepper, and cumin; process until smooth. Transfer to a serving dish or bowl, and top with sliced scallions. Top with avocado, and drizzle with additional olive oil, if desired. Serve with baked whole-grain tortilla chips.
