Otherwise, I don't really use it unless something really needs it, like fries, which I don't eat very often anymore either, so the amount of ketchup is negligible.
I wish things like hummus and other dips had less calories per serving; 2 tablespoons is way too little of a serving for it to be considered dip-worthy, to me. My serving of whatever I eat it with is always exceeds the hummus/dip serving by a lot! For instance, a serving of carrots is 3oz compared to 1oz of hummus -- that's a pretty big difference! And if you only ate an ounce of carrots, well, to me, you might as well just not eat them. I know I can just use more dip, but then it makes the calories higher! Urgh!
