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 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!
