I have replaced almost all traditional bread, crackers and chips for dipping with vegetables. This has been a HUGE benefit because i'm fitting in more vegetables, especially RAW organic vegetables into my daily diet. I don't mean "Grab your celery People" I mean PEPPERS!! and NOT Green. Red, yellow and orange ~ YUMMY!!! 267
My my ultimate switch is Peppers. Those little orange, yellow and red sweet peppers. I use them all the time in place of bread, crackers and pitas. I scoop, hummous, tuna fish and CHILI!!! Delicious!! These peppers are perfect for snacking and meals, very filling and satisfying.
If you are going to be eating out or going to a party, try eating
a serving of vegetables before you go if you can. Many restaurants serve large portions of the entrees but don't always include vegetables other than potatoes or a side salad. Parties and cookouts may not have a lot of healthy food available. By eating a veggie serving before going, you won't be so hungry when you arrive and can avoid bread baskets & less healthy options, and get a daily serving of veggies. You can take part of your entree home for lunch the next day if you want.
