Everyone is familiar with the usual buffet of heavy and often unhealthy snacks at holiday gatherings… cheeses, dips, candy, cookies, chips and crackers- the list is never-ending. Why not try some healthy holiday snacks ( 10 great ideas here) at your next occasion? This past week, Dr. Kitzmiller’s team decided to try some healthier choices during an in-house training session. The reviews were great!
Kristy brought in corn and black bean dip that the team used both as a healthy dip as well as a topper for a light salad. Delicious!
