    My favorite dip is bean dip of any kind. I make beans in the crockpot every couple of days so I always am ready to whirl them in the blender for a quick dip. A couple of tbsp. with celery is filling and easy on the waistline.

    I make dip with light sour cream, I don't do yogurt. My favorites are ranch dip, blue cheese dip, and avocado ranch dip. I like Kettle Brand baked chips. It's seem to be all to rage right now to make chips out of all kinds of vegetables, but if you check the labels, they are not any better for you, even the commercially made pita chips are terrible. Baked potato chips are much better.

    I make "chips" by thinly slicing turnip or jicama.
  • I don't care for dip.
  • Kale chips! Yum!
  • When making dips, use plain yogurt. Using plain yogurt and stevia sweetner is a wonderful dip for fresh fruits. Place the stevia leaves in and around the fruit for decoration.
  • I like to make my own pita chips from the whole wheat pita bread one can purchase at Trader Joe's. They're 100% whole wheat with no additives, preservatives or sugar. It's easy and tasty! Here's how:

    Cut the pita bread rounds in half. Separate top from bottom. Cut each half into 3 slices (Pie shaped). Arrange the pieces on a baking sheet, smooth side down. Brush the rough side lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkle lightly with seasalt. Bake 4 minutes at 400 degrees. Flip them over and bake another 4 minutes. Crunchy and everyone loves them!

    Better than all of these suggestions...watch at least half the game from your treadmill or exercise bike, then indulge a little!!!
  • A great low fat onion dip.. Low fat cream cheese, 1/4 cup finely chopped onion.. warm cream cheese to room temperature add onion, slowly add warm water and mix, add warm water till you get it the thickness you desire, Our family uses it with veggies, pretzels, baked chips, flatbread crackers..
