Try keeping cut up celery and carrot sticks, green pepper strips, broccoli “trees” and cherry tomatoes in the fridge for a healthy snack with dip.
Safety Tip: Be careful when opening cans so you do not cut your fingers. Wipe off lids before opening. Too often we forget to wash the can opener; and dirty can openers can spread germs.
