Default Romaine Lettuce the new chip

I just have to tell you that instead of chips or crackers I've been using Romain lettuce to eat hummus or salsa. I love it! I've been doing it for a couple of months. I serve it at parties and its quickly becoming a huge hit. I thought I would share it with everyone!

6 leaves of romaine is only 15 cals compared to chips which are not.

That's excellent.
Not only is it fewer calories but it's higher in minerals and fiber!

luvja - can you eat cabbage or kale? You could try subbing those for lettuce if you wanted to dry the dip thing.

I like to use romaine lettuce leaves instead of tortillas for wraps. cuts about 150 cals out of the picture!

Besides romaine lettuce you can use celery and carrots to eat hummas too.

Hmmm...can you think of a good substitute for tortilla chips that goes with green salsa (like, 99% jalapeno salsa)? If so, you will be my hero!

I do that too! It saves so many calories.
Also, endive leaves are good for dipping into salsas and hummus type dips because they're firm and shaped with a dip and high sides.
