sauces

Some people have the misconception that eating clean automatically means giving up any sauces you enjoy putting on your favorite foods. It’s true that typical sauces are full of added sugars, salts, and can really add calories to your meal if you’re not careful. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t find healthy alternatives to your favorite dips or sauces to use occasionally.

With summer picnics and BBQs in full swing (not to mention a big holiday weekend coming up) impress your party guests with these 21 Day Fix Approved sauces & dips perfect for your next summer get together.

I shared the BBQ sauce recipe in last week’s post about healthy lunch ideas. But in case you missed it, here it is again:
