I'm not a Mac user, but on my linux system I use gnumeric to export
spreadsheets to latex tables. I see that there is a macport for
gnumeric; others may have experience with how it runs (or doesn't) on a
mac. gnumeric reads/writes excel files, of course, so you can keep your
files as excel and use gnumeric for the latex export only if you wish.

In my experience, with some tweaking, the gnumeric exports are quite
good and make tables that pick up your document's fonts and such.
