7 Keto Friendly Superbowl Foods

Here we are Super Bowl party time has arrived. In two weeks we get to see who will be named the 2019 NFL victors.

Basically, the Super Bowl is a national holiday in America. No seriously, some cities have tried to pass laws so that the day after the Super Bowl would be a non working holiday. I mean screaming at the television, slinging back chicken wings and beer is exhausting who can work after that kind of night. I’m tired just thinking about it.

I used to hate football but my husband has slowly turned me into a major fan. The Super Bowl is different though the half time show, the commercials, and gathering with friends that make it such an event. Which brings me to the food….

I have incorporated a low carb/Keto diet into my lifestyle since 2012. After two babies and multiple failed “diets” I can say it has always yielded the best results for me not just in weight loss but over all health. I don’t feel as fatigued, my skin is better, I’m more active, etc. I will being sharing more about this in the future.

I have created a “Keto-friendly/low carb menu” to feast on during the game that will satisfy my savory and sweet tastes while keeping me in check with my lifestyle. Naturally I wanted to share this with you all.
