Continue the Healthy Basket
Instead of chips and dip... pack baked tortilla chips and serve with salsa, which is low-calorie and full of healthy fiber and vitamins. "Or treat friends and family to seasoned air-popped popcorn," says Steinback.
Instead of cookies and brownies... satisfy your dessert cravings with sugar-fr*ee Jell-O, low-calorie pudding or fresh fruit. For an extra treat, add a dollop of low-fat whipped cream.
And don't forget Steinback's rule for food safety: If the temperature is 85 degrees or higher, throw away any picnic food that's been left out longer than 1 hour.
