Happy National Chip and Dip Day! Have you ever munched on chips during your favorite sporting event and not realized how much you just ate? Chips are one of many foods that we can eat because it is good. Because we are distracted by the television we are sometimes not aware on how much we eat.

TIP:

Don’t forget to use multigrain or baked corn chips.  And cut calories by using your favorite crunchy raw vegetables with the Dip.

In recognition of March being National Nutrition Month, we will be posting a  healthy recipe every Thursday in March with the help of our nutritionists.
