Which Does Your Family Prefer, Catalina Or Western Dressing?

Top 5 As Healthy As You Can Get, New 2017 Minnesota State Fair Foods

The anticipation of eating several yummy foods at the Minnesota State Fair is a huge draw for me, but I struggle to "eat healthy".  Usually what happens is I walk around and around while everyone I'm with is stopping to get what they want (usually several different kinds of food) and I end of with a bucket of chocolate chip cookies on the way out.  LAME!  This year I've done my research and found the closest I could get to "healthy" foods and this would be my top 5 picks.
