Whether you are going to watch the game, hang out with friends, or watch the commercials, one thing stays the same…the food! Don’t let one day derail you from your diet plan. I’ve been following the Keto diet for a little over a year now and I plan on enjoying this weekend and all the food, but still stay well within my plan. You can too! Below you will find yummy Keto game day recipes that won’t make you feel like you are missing out on anything!

Keto Game Day Recipes

Keto game day

With any diet, planning is key. Like I said, I’ve been on the Keto diet for an entire year. In that time, I have lost over 80 lbs. I wouldn’t have lost that weight if I didn’t plan. I also never had a “cheat day” because with the Keto diet, you don’t need a cheat day! I’ve put together a round-up of recipes that you will love (and so will your non-Keto friends) that are perfect for your Game Day party!

Most Super Bowl watching parties that I’ve been to over the years have had chili. On any low carb diet, Keto included, chili is not exactly on plan. But that’s OK! This Chorizo Chicken Soup recipe will knock the socks off all your guests and no one will miss the chili!

10 Amazing Keto Recipes

Early on in 2016, I made one heck of a lifestyle change. I decided to drastically change the way I was eating. Going from eating WAY too many carbs and sugar to eating very low carb and zero sugar was difficult at first. Obviously any drastic change in a person’s diet would be difficult, but once I got over the hump, following the Keto diet was the best decision I ever made. Over the course of the past year, I have come across a lot of really great Keto recipes. Below are the top 10 Keto recipes!

10 Amazing Keto Recipes

If you aren’t familiar with what the Keto diet is, it’s a way of eating that is high fat, moderate protein and very low carbs. For instance, I only eat 20 total carbs a day. Like any new lifestyle change, it’s a little stressful in the beginning trying to figure out to eat. Well stress no more! I put together the following list must try keto recipes!

Kit Kat Cookies Recipe

My kids love when I make “fun” cookies. They define fun cookies as cookies that are not like your traditional sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookies. Instead I like to make Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. They loved those. I’ve been asked to make them several times. The funny thing about that recipe is, I bought pre-made cookie dough! It was so easy! I think the hardest part was unwrapping all those Rolo’s! I really can’t wait to introduce them to these fabulous Kit Kat cookies! I am sure they will go crazy for them. Especially Bella…she loves Kit Kat’s!
