Tips: Make a savoury dip for veggie sticks: Mix ½ cup low-fat cottage cheese with ¼ cup plain low-fat yoghurt and season with lemon juice and black pepper. If you'd like, add some chopped fresh herbs. Use any seasonal fruit to dunk into the dip. This is also a great lunch box filler for kids. Add a pinch of cinnamon or a drop of vanilla essence to the dip for a different flavour. Make sure you use good-quality peanut butter that's lower in salt and sugar.
