I found that canned cannellini beans beans make a great creamy dip base when you drain and then grind them up with other fresh ingredients in the food processor. Adding a little reduced-fat feta cheese gives just that little extra zing, especially with a little oregano, S&P. Lemon juice, parsley, garlic is a good combo... Roasted red pepper, garlic, cilantro is a good combo... The possibilities are endless.

Great article, but you missed a PERFECT chip substitute!! I often eat some salsa with CELERY STICKS instead of chips. Still has lots of crunch power, and I still get to eat salsa! HEhee.

Sounds like a good alternative, but once I get started, it's hard to stop. So I think I'll ust skip the chips 7 dip altogether.

Whole Wheat chips are a great suggestion. . . provided you aren't allergic to wheat!

Snacking is a challenge for many of us, and I am no exception!

Being given some concrete examples of "good stuff" to munch on during the big game(or any other time) was really helpful; it gives me the chance to do some planning, instead of eating without thinking. There were plenty of goodies that even folks who don't need to watch their weight are going to love.
