Lightly mist radish slices with cooking spray and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. (if using other seasonings, now is the time to add them).

That bacon veggie dip sounds great. Thanks for sharing! I'll have to try this with the recent veggies I bought.

I LOVE kale chips, and they are super easy to make. Cut the leaves from the stems, place on a cookie sheet, spritz the leaves with olive or coconut oil, sprinkle a little sea salt (and/or garlic salt) on them and bake for about 8-10 minutes at 400 until crispy. You will not know you are eating kale!

Bacon Ranch Dip
Plan ahead...needs to chill

I used reduced-fat items to lighten up this Parmesan and bacon dip. Not only is it a snap to mix up the night before a party, but the proportions can easily be adjusted for smaller or larger groups. I get requests for the recipe whenever I serve it.
-Pam G., Lakeville, Minnesota

1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/2 cup reduced-fat ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon
Assorted fresh vegetables

In a bowl, combine the first five ingredients; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Serve with vegetables. Yield: 1-1/2 cups.

Sounds like you got a nice little tray of snacks for the day !!

Hummus is great and filling. It is weird to eat it with veggies but I have on occasion but I like it better with crackers.

Nabisco makes fat free Saltines and also you can get reduced fat Wheat Thins.

Thanks! That's a good one :)
I went to the grocery store on my lunch break to see if I could find little veggi snack tray (just for today really. Not practical for the everyday) and they had a "Taylor Farms Five a Day" set! It has a 1/2 cup of apple slices, 1/2 cup of grapes, 1/3 cup raisins, 1/2 cup baby carrots, 1/2 cup celery, 4 tbsp peanut butter (way too much!! lol) and 4 tbsp of garlic hummus. What a great little kit! I don't care for the hummus on veggis. On crackers it's ok...but maybe I just don't like this Anyway...great little set for munching :)

For anyone curious, I got it at Safeway.

Hi all!
I work in an office at my desk and see clients as a social worker. During the work day I'm often hungry and I'm trying to get in lots of little small grazing through out the day as I feel the least hungry this way.
It used to be one chip here, one chip there, a peice of on and so forth but obviously I've kicked those habits to the curb! Grapes are an easy replacement but high in sugar so I don't want to rely on those all day everday.
I love fruit and it's so easy to take bananas, apples and oranges to work with me and munch them between seeing clients but I'd like to include more veggis.
I don't have the option to warm anything up because I'm limited on breaks, so I need raw choices and maybe some healthy dips?
I've got a great idea for super light ranch. You take equal parts light ranch and light buttermilk, mix it up and ta-da! But I'd like some options. What do you like?
