Quick Dips

Stash a protein-packed dip like Greek yogurt or peanut butter in the office fridge or your desk drawer for those days when you just don’t have time for breakfast. The combination of fiber-filled veggies and satiating dips will help you stay away from the break room pastry platter. Here are three quick-dipping ideas:

1. Pack peanut butter in a small container then dip with a mix of celery sticks, cucumbers, and apple slices.

2. Mix plain Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey as a dip with carrots and whole-grain pretzel sticks.

3. Hummus can be a wonderful dip for sliced fruit and veggies anytime of the day.

4. Try your hand at making your own dip, like this savory recipe. View Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
