Super Bowl LII: Are You Ready For Some Keto-Friendly Snacking?

Confession: That Nice Boy I Married and I pay no attention to professional sports. We’ve been known to host a “Let’s Ignore the Super Bowl” party. Still, I thought I’d give a quick rundown of Super Bowl Sunday Snack Strategy.

Football’s great, but I’m only here for the snacks!

First of all, sit far away from the chips.

Secondly, make sure there are snacks that work for you. Your grocery store deli should be able to provide:

  • Chicken wings (watch out for breading and sugary sauces)
  • Cheese platter: cubes or slices
  • Cold cut platters
  • Relish tray
  • Shrimp platter! Take up a collection if you need to! You can make your own low-carb cocktail sauce by spiking sugar free ketchup with horseradish and lemon juice to taste.

Meat and cheese plates are almost always a safe bet!

If the gang orders pizza, make sure one of them has extra cheese and low-carb toppings – pepperoni and sausage are ideal. Peel off the toppings, eat them, and toss the crust.

Want to make something yourself? How about:

  • Wings – Roast ‘em crisp and toss them with a 50/50 combo of melted butter and Frank’s Hot Sauce, with a smidge of garlic thrown in, for classic Buffalo Wings. Or do try something a bit more complicated, like the Wicked Wings in The Low-Carb Diabetes Solution Cookbook. They’re Guaranteed to impress the crowd!
  • Stuffed mushrooms
  • Good ol’ deviled eggs
  • Grab the pork rinds, and make this simple and unusual recipe that I just love:

Herbert D. Focken’s Sweetened Jalapeño Bites, Updated

Herbert D. Focken sent in this idea for 500 More Low-Carb Recipes, and I’ve been in love with it ever since. But for 500 Ketogenic RecipesI thought it was time to create an updated version, using today’s more popular sweeteners. Whichever sweetener you use, check their website for the sweetness equivalence. You can just add it to taste, but be careful. It’s easy to add more, but impossible to remove too much. (click image to view recipe)

Don’t forget diet soda, sparkling water, iced tea, or other favorite sugar-free beverages of choice!

Have fun! And I hope your team wins. Whoever’s playing.
