That bacon veggie dip sounds great. Thanks for sharing! I'll have to try this with the recent veggies I bought.
Stromm I gotta say...you've interested me. I do not like kale as a general rule. But...I may just have to try that.

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!

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.

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 one...eh. Anyway...great little set for munching :)
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 candy...so 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?
