I have replaced just about all mayo and sour cream in recipes with fat-free greek yogurt. Makes just about any recipe guilt-free. I recently make spinach/artichoke dip with the greek yogurt and a bit of reduced fat cream cheese and used fresh veg as dippers. Crunchy, filling and pretty darn healthy. But any dip packet (ranch, onion, veggie) can be made with the greek yogurt instead, and it's almost indistinguishable. Even if you replace half the chips with fresh veggies, you have a very healthy snack! Cheers!

One large container of Non Fat Greek Yogurt
One envelope of Onion Soup Mix
That will make a nice french onion dip

Then I buy bags of carrot chips and dip away - I find that it is the dip I crave more than the chips

I still eat chips and dip, I just make sure I keep the servings small- Often just a single serve bag of chips and a single serve dip.

I like the roasted garlic Triscuits with cheese (babybels), veggies and hummus, or veggies and a low fat dressing or vinegar and oil. Pretzels are good, too, with any of the above. I have started to really love celery and red bell peppers with roasted garlic hummus. The combination just rocks.

Good luck!

Maybe not what you're looking for, but I like raw veggies dipped in hummus or baba ganouj. Crunchy and yummy!

I've never had a real sweet tooth (I mean, we all have a little, but it has never been a major issue for me) but I LOVE chips and dip. Plain chips I can avoid but the combo is deadly. Anyone have a good idea for an alternative?

Side Note-I have tried Kale chips and I was not a fan. They were way to flimsy for me.
