Notes

Most vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories.
Eat them with protein-rich dips and get all the benefits and great taste.
If you are always in a rush, to save time you can cut the veggies in advance.
Julienne the carrot, cucumber, and celery sticks.
Put them in a glass container, pour water over them, and close the lid.
Refrigerate them and change the water every 2 days.
I know what you are thinking 🙂 that they will lose the benefits! 
You will still get most of the benefits from the veggies other than vitamin C or E.
You will get lots of fiber and many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fiber, and folate (folic acid).
️ You can enjoy them with sour cream ( recipe in sauce and dips section)or with creamy avocado dip.
