Skinny dips to help you maintain your swim suit (or birthday suit) body.

With summer quickly approaching, and spring in full swing, the sunny weather calls for lake trips, picnics, and as always, snacking. Weekend excursions to a lake house or sunny afternoons by the pool may end in regret after eating an entire bag of chips and seeing the empty queso bowl on the kitchen table. In order to prevent this post-snack food coma, try one (or all) of the recipes below for savory dips that will satisfy sweet, salty and spicy cravings.

Black bean dip and chips

You can buy black bean dip at the store, or make this easy recipe, but either way, this flavorful, salty and smooth creation will fill you up with protein and fiber. Pair it with sweet potato chips, light tortilla chips, or your favorite crackers.
