I like No Name flavoured Rice Crackers & Salsa :)
You can even add a Tbs of light Cheese Whiz to the salsa and warm it in the microwave for that creamier texture. Or a Tbs Fat Free Sour Cream. ;)

Have you tried the baked and light potato chips? What about the Popchips?

I was really hoping to find something here besides veggie & dip ideas....they are good, but not a substute for chips....I really don`t need the dip, just chip substitutes! I eat the Special K chips, but I`m tired of them....I want "yellow bag" potato chips !!!!! I don`t even buy them anymore, but boy do I want to!
OK , so the kale chips, sounds good, but how do you make them?

Pita chips and hummus

Carrots/Cucumber and hummus

Kale chips (seriously, these are really good and crunch like chips w/o the fat!)

Mix together 1/4 cup plain yogurt, a splash of vanilla extract, a dash of cinnamon, 1/2 Tablespoon nut butter, and 1/2 Tablespoon Chocolate Chips.(Adjust vanilla extract and cinnamon to your taste)

Use to dip apple slices. Less than 200 calories and just as satisfying as chips and dip.

I use low fat sour cream/onion soup or blue cheese and pretzels. Sometimes I bake corn tortillas (thin ones) and use to dip in salsa or beans. Be sure to track!

Ah, the dreaded chips and dip...oh how they call my name too !!
Not sure why they are so addictive. The need to crunch ? The need of something salty and creamy in the dip ? I don't know.

Make your own dip with fat free sour cream and a envelope of veggie soup mix or an envelope of onion soup mix. You can also mix fat free sour cream with a jar of salsa for creamy salsa dip !

Use celery, carrot sticks, green pepper strips with a few chips until eventually your plate with have more veggies than chips.

I buy cucumber as a good alternative for chippies, but they slowly wither in the fridge, while I munch chippies.
I buy the lowest cal dips I can, but I eat huge scoops.
Honestly, I would rather have chippies and dips, and skip the meal afterwards!

Why are these foods so addictive when I first walk in the door?
Can a craving have a nutritional need behind it?
I live 3 minutes away from work, so the wrench leaving deadline tasks because it's time to cook a meal, is always still fresh in my mind.

I would feel so elegant, if I could serve really low cal nibbles and dips without diving in immediately to gobble them...that has to be another goal for me!

All suggestions welcome, please.

Happy New Year!
