Running=healthy

Never stretching after your run and then wondering why your right hip is always sore=not healthy and also stupid.

Short shorts with thigh high boots=never healthy and also white trash (which we saw a lot of at the Muddy Frogwater Festival in Milton-Freewater. Lucky for you I didn’t take a picture.)

Fruit=healthy

Fruit dipped in “old school” fruit dip (cream cheese and marshmallow cream whipped together)=not healthy

Fruit dipped in “new school” fruit dip=not too shabby!

I was in charge of dessert for family dinner. I knew the menu included mashed potatoes, corn and rolls to name a few. We needed light. We needed summery. And maybe, a little protein?

My strawberry cheesecake fruit dip was just the ticket. It has the typical attributes that I love:

1. Fast

2. Kinda healthy

3. Easy. In a non-short shorts kinda way.

Now, take off those thigh high boots and put on some flip flops for goodness sake!
