What's in it for you?

Adding low-fat salad dressings is an easy way to spice up sandwiches and dips. Check the label to find dressings you like that don't contain hydrogenated fats. Hydrogenated fats can clog up your circulatory system.

Try veggie spears for your daily crunch instead of fried, greasy junk food. You'll lose the extra fat and salt and boost your vitamin intake. Your body will thank you for it.

Chef's tip:

Sliced vegetables will stay crisp in the refrigerator for several days if you store them in cold water. Slicing them up ahead of time will get you set for snacking on the go.
