January comes along, and with tons of other people, you decide to buckle down and make some New Year’s resolutions—like cutting out carbs for the health and weight-loss benefits. Or, maybe you’ve made it through both Thanksgiving and Christmas sticking to a keto diet! But then comes the first weekend in February, and what happens? Only the biggest football game of the year. And with it comes a whole load of pressure to make and eat all kinds of off-the-list, carb-filled foods.
But you worked hard to get your body into that precious fat-burning ketosis state, and you don’t want to ruin it with a Sunday afternoon of bingeing. But you also don’t want to sweat out the evening saying no to every offered plate, while watching family or friends load up on all the things you can’t have. You need to be able to indulge without sacrificing your goals.
That’s why we’ve put together this list of a dozen and a half absolutely satisfying Super Bowl snacks that—most importantly—are low enough in net carbs to keep you humming along in fat-burning bliss. What could be better than that? We have absolute must-have classics like Buffalo wings and chicken dip, as well as surprising faves like jalapeño poppers and bacon-wrapped shrimp, and even some keto-classics like chocolate fat bombs, all of which are snackably delicious, easy to make, and won’t break your carb allowances. So you can enjoy the game without regretting it the next day.
