Healthy snacking can be habit forming if you plan ahead.  I’ll typically make my healthy soups, salads and snacks on Sundays to last me well into the following week.  I’m not a big fan of coming home after a long day at work and rattling a bunch of pots and pans around to get something going for dinner.  I like to effortlessly pull out a soup, stew or salad that I made ahead of time and reheat if necessary.  And I’m usually famished when I walk through the door and looking for something to snack on while I get dinner going.  If I’ve been good and planned and prepared ahead of time, then I’ll have something healthy to snack on.  Chips used to be my weakness…I just don’t buy them anymore.  I can’t be trusted!   But if I have veggies prepared, then it’s veggies that I’ll eat.  And everyone loves a good dip, including me, so if I have a good healthy dip on hand, then the more veggies I’ll consume.

Some of my favorite veggies to serve with this low fat ranch dip are cucumbers (super hydrating), carrots (loaded with antioxidants), celery (a natural diuretic), broccoli (has cancer fighting properties), and cauliflower (immune boosting and anti-inflammatory benefits).
