We’re at the BIG DAY, you guys Big Game Sunday. One of the biggest eating days of the year. I mean, one of the biggest football games of the year. Or both. Now, lots of these foods are amazing and delicious and possibly even a treat you indulge in but once a year. You know the foods I mean. The buffalo chicken dips, the gooey, cheesy chilies, nachos topped with lots of guacamole…cater to your inner child for a whole lot of yum!! Except… except…you’re working on the keto thing, and low carb eating is your current jam. So you want to enjoy the flavors with not all of the CARBS, right?
