I'm not sure that this food qualifies as a diet food, but I did make it a bit healthier =) My favorite meal is breakfast, whether it's just cereal or stuffed french toast (especially from IHOP *drool*), I love it! That's where my down fall is too, because most breakfast foods are not low calories, and no breakfast smoothies are not breakfast food!!! I have been wanting to make crepes for awhile but was a bit hesitant because the last time I made them was in my high school cooking class and we used one of those fancy pans that are especially for crepes. I made them this morning, and I loved them! I think the kids did too but they didn't say anything and the next thing I knew, the plates were in the sink =)

If your favorite dip is ranch try this: Add 1 tbsp parsley, sprinkle of salt and pepper, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder. 1 cup Mayo and 1 cup buttermilk. You'll make ranch dressing. Adjust the mayo or sub sour cream for ranch to get something more like a chip dip! Same great taste (if not better) and no funny chemicals! You can use fat free mayo and 1% milk (just 2-3 tbsp vinegar to the milk make it it buttermilk), or use the fat free sour cream and that takes a lot of calories away and you can still enjoy chips and dip! Plus, I have a friend who used rice milk instead, and it was still pretty darn good.
