Happy National Chip and Dip Day!

 Posted by Jennifer (The RD)

Who doesn’t like America’s most classic party food, chips and dip?  Chips and dip can be very addicting and often very calorie, fat, and salt laden.  Remember those time(s) when you went to the Mexican restaurant and could barely dig into your entrée because your stomach was so full from the chips and salsa?  I think we’ve all been there.  Here are some tips for not getting ourselves into so much trouble today.   🙂

  1. Try to limit the amount that you are eating.  Instead of eating ½ of the bag of chips, try to stop after only a handful.
  2. Substitute high fat bases like sour cream for lower fat options such as fat free sour cream, fat free yogurt, or even blended silken tofu.
  3. Use salt free or lower salt herb blends to flavor your dip as opposed to the super high salt dip mix packages.  I love penzeys:  www.penzeys.com
