Clean eating at a party? Is that possible? I love to indulge at New Year’s Eve parties. But I also enjoy eating things that make my body feel good. Luckily, those two things are not mutually exclusive.

There are loads of recipes out there for vegan party food, ranging from dips like spinach & artichoke to more involved creations like raw vegan mini-cheesecakes. The point is, whether your tastes run to simple snacks or elaborate spreads, there are definitely healthful options that will ensure you start the New Year feeling great, inside and out.
