Black Bean Dip and Falafel Chips
I am loving have the air conditioner back!  I don't feel all flustered and lost about my workouts.  I got up today and started it off with a bang.  Well, some Kick Punch and Crunch anyway (thank you for the reminder, Heather!).  It felt so good! I then followed that with Core Exhale Fusion.  I have one on the DVR called the pretzel.  I thought it sounded odd the first time I did it, but I figured why and fitness, I am sold.  This one really works your booty!  I love how it uses muscles you don't use everyday.  Both were a nice mix of high and low intensity.  Perfect for hump day!  Take that Wednesday!!!
(I can't keep this guy from eating these!)

Now eats...have you ever met a food that knocks your socks off, it's that good?  Well, this one has totally done that for me!  I got some Falafel Chips the other day after HEAB mentioned them.  I am a HUGE fan of Mediterranean flavors so I was excited to give these a try.  They come in 2 varieties...

Spicy and...


I love it when labels give you this much information!  You should check out all of the great things in these chips!  They are gluten free and dairy free, but definitely NOT taste free!  Perfect for my family!  They are not greasy either like other chips.  They seem more like crackers to me.  
When we first opened the package, I was so impressed with how the chips were whole and not all broken up.
They are double bagged and it is a nice full bag of chips!
You can actually see all of the spices and herbs on the chips.  I loved both the spicy and the original flavors.  Immediately, when we tasted them, we knew exactly what kind of dip to put with them!
Black bean of course!
This dip is really simple and a perfect dip for these sturdy Falafel Chips!

Black Bean Dip

3 cups black beans
1/3 cup salsa
1 tsp Kosher salt (I make my own beans so adjust this to your taste if using canned)
2 tsp cumin
3 cloves of garlic (I LOVE garlic, so adjust this to your taste too)

Mix everything in the food processor until it is the consistency you like.  I left mine chunky.

This would be so good as a hot dip too or in a tortilla.
We eat bean dips with veggies and some sort of flat bread or cracker/chip for dinner a lot of nights.  I try to make food a little more interactive and fun for the boys.  Besides, it is a great way to get the kids to eat there veggies!

Do you eat dips for dinner or does it have to be a more formal sit down dinner?

You can order Falafel Chips on line, but make sure you check out their site to see where you can get them in your area.  If you don't have them locally, print out the sheet to take to your store manager.  You definitely want to have these!
