Dips made from veggies may not seem tasty, but they actually are. My favorite is a sweet butternut squash dip, though I also like dips made from pureed avocados, tomatoes, zucchini and carrots. I usually eat these dips with celery sticks and whole grain bread. You can use spices and herbs to jazz up the flavor and enjoy something new every day. Fruit dips are also great, but I recommend mixing fresh fruits with a bit of yogurt because fruit dips are difficult to get smoother in texture. My favorite fruit dip is made of half banana, half pumpkin and a bit of vanilla. This makes a fabulous topping for yogurt, oatmeal, or muffins.
