    I do get my fats in other areas of my diet, as well as roast, steam, etc vegetables for meals. The reason for the raw vegies...I am a "snacker"...I will snack on any and every junk food but more specifically crunchy junk foods (chips, mega butter popcorn, fatty crackers, etc). To keep me from snacking on junk, I keep a container of raw vegetables on hand at all times. When I feel like snacking I much on them. It has helped me get my junk food cravings under control but they are getting boring! I LOVE all of the suggestions and I will be adding them to my food list. Thank you so much!

    Try different vinegars like apple cider, balsamic, and champagne. You can also use lemon or lime juice and chili powder or sauce. I love some sliced cucumbers and jicama with tapatio, lemon juice, and salt.

    I love making greek yogurt dip for my veggies. You can even get the fat free kind to cut calories even further.

    I avoid using dressing by adding a mix of sweet and salty ingredients to my salad like corn, beetroot, olives and feta.
    Alternatively I make a simple dressing with natural Greek yogurt, lemon juice and mustard mixed together.

    Kernel Seasonings makes a variety of popcorn toppers from ranch to buffalo wing that could be tasty on a variety of veggies. I use the white cheddar on steamed broccoli, I see no reason it wouldn't be tasty on raw veggies.

    If you're from England there are Sainsbury's and Tesco's own salad dressing and various other sauces to make vegetables more interesting without smothering them with fat.

    Also 'Lighter than Light' mayonnaise is a god send.

    If you have time to make your own then you can obviously control what goes into it.
