    As the summer months roll in, we are more inclined to take our meals on the road. The key to maintaining a healthful diet on long road trips or during family vacations is quick, portable snacks that can come along for the ride. This dip can easily be packed for a snack while on the road, at a game, or at the beach.

    Try this bean dip paired with whole grain tortilla chips, warmed whole wheat pita triangles, or raw vegetables at your next party or BBQ as a healthful alternative to mayonnaise-based dips and spreads.
