Super Bowl LIV is on Sunday, and that can only mean one thing: healthy treats! Well, it is true that there are other possibilities, but there is a low-carb way to go, too. The BariatricPal Store has the low-carb fare that can keep you and your guests satisfied without going over the top on sugar, starch, and carbs. Here are a few smart snacks to consider.
Sauces and Dips
A Super Bowl party makes almost no sense without a range of dips and sauces for chips, crackers, and wings. However, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, and cheese, French onion, and other cream dips pack on the fat, sugar, and calories. Instead,Calorie-Free Dips and Sauces have no calories, no fat, no sugar, and no carbs. Dip and spread to your heart’s content!
You can also make or purchase low-carb dips with a load of nutrients. Guacamole is low-carb, high in heart-healthy fats, and high in antioxidants and fiber, and hummus is another nutritious dip and spread. Salsa is lower in calories and high in vitamins and fiber.
Protein Chips may be one of the world’s best inventions. They give you the opportunity to enjoy potato and tortilla chips, in flavors such as Ranch, Sour Cream and Onion, Barbecue, and Sea Salt, without the refined starches and trans fats in fried potato and tortilla chips. For more dippers, try fresh vegetables such as carrot sticks, celery sticks, bell pepper strips, and broccoli and cauliflower florets.
Nuts are easy, delicious, low-carb, and heart-healthy. With our line ofNut Snacks, nuts are never boring. Flavors include Cheddar Bacon, Tangy Ranch, Wasabi Soy, and Buffalo Blue Wing. They are natural sources of protein and heart-healthy fats, and are seasoned with real herbs and spices. Your guests will be clamoring for more without realizing that they are healthy! You can also serve them with low-carb, full-flavorCheese Snacks.
Pretzels are a perfect crunchy, salty snack for a party, andProtein Pretzels have the same taste and crunch without the carbs. They come in gluten-free, non-GMO varieties, in twists and sticks, and in flavors such as Salt, Honey Mustard, and Cinnamon Toast.
Even soft pretzels are a low-carb possibility when you shop at the BariatricPal Store. Just make them usingLow-Carb Baking Mix, and serve them with mustard or cheese.
