TAKE A DIP.......
For most of us, the real fun of holiday parties is the nonstop snack-a-thon. But if you want to be leass naughty this year, Robin Miller, the host of Food Networks' Quick Fix Meals, offers three dips bursting with holiday flavor --- not fat.

Rx - The old wives tale is true. It can settle the stomach.
Smart Dip -
Ginger Spiked Roasted Pepper Dip.
In a food processor, combine 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger, two 12-once jars water-packed roasted red peppers (undrained), 2 chopped garlic cloves, and 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard. Blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper, then 1/4 cup minced fresh basil.
Serve with: Whole grain crackers or fresh vegetables.

Rx - Rich in antioxidants, which research suggests may help protect against disease and cancer.
Smart Dip -
Mango-Cranberry Chutney.
IN a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups diced mangoes, 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, 1/4 cup minced red onion, 2 tablesspoons water, 2 tablespoons cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon cummin. Simmer for 10 minures, stirring, until thick. Serve warm.
Serve with - Pita wedges or black bread sqaures.

Rx - Helps lower cholesterol and, in diabetics, reduce blood sugar levels.
