Healthy Super Bowl Recipes: 6 Clean Sauces For Your Party

This Super Bowl weekend, don't hide in the corner nibbling celery sticks. Bring these healthy sauces to the party and dip your snacks without feeling guilty.

It's Super Bowl time! This game of all games may be hugely exciting for sports fans, but it can also be a time of anxiety for people trying to stick to a clean diet. What can healthy eaters and fitness buffs do? Continue to skip out on the chips and dip and nibble on carrots and rice cakes? That might seem like the only option. You can, however, opt to "get creative."

If you're playing host or have been instructed to bring food to a pot-luck party, figuring out ways to keep guests happy and your calorie count within reasonable limits is challenging. But with mission "get creative," there's hope. By using smart substitutions like low-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, swapping butter for virgin coconut oil, or using honey instead of sugar, you can continue to dip your treats without sacrificing your six-pack.
