Chips, Dips, ‘n Snacks

Summer parties and gatherings are a problem for a diet as just about every chip, cracker and snack is a diet disaster. Raw vegetables make a great substitute for chips and crackers – a vehicle for the dip with a lot of crunch but few calories. Dips are more of a problem since this is […]

Cabbage Soup And Romaine Fajitas
