Veggie tips for Paleo dieters

If you're not a big veg person but want to go Paleo, here are some tips:

If you're doing Lacto-Paleo (not giving up milk), like me, then dips are wonderful.  You can usually find the store brand spinach, ranch, and onion dip seasoning packets (I plan to experiment with the italian dressing seasoning, too) for a low price.  I grab the store brand neufchatel cheese (same carbs, fewer calories), soften and mix.  Very inexpensive, easy-to-make, low cal and low carb!

I thin my dips down (you can use water, milk, or sour cream for a tangy taste) even more to save calories.  Dip doesn't have to be thick like brick morter, despite what the big-name dip people tell you!  They make them so thick so that you'll get enormous globs on each tablespoon-sized chip and thus run through the dip faster whilst adding more flab to your backside!

Anyway, once thinned, you have a creamy dip for raw cucumbers, broccoli, celery, and zucchini.  Yum!

I even thin this same 'recipe' down until it's easily spoonable, and substitute it for dressing over spinach or iceberg lettuce salads.
