Low Carb Snacks for Game Day #gamechangingswitch #savalotinsiders | Nevermore Lane

The Big Game day is almost here. Are you excited? If you’re like most of us, you know that planning a game day spread can make you absolutely bonkers. For others, all the game day snacking causes havoc on our lifestyles.  Big game Sunday stresses me out. It’s a day full of fun and chaos, but trying to make sure I have goodies I can snack out without worrying about my health can often wear me out.

This year I hope to change that. While I help you with some healthy snack alternatives Sav-A-Lot is going to help you in the grocery budget department.

Low Carb Zucchini Pizza Bites

These little guys might be missing the dough bottom, but they still pack a whole lot of taste!

Cauliflower Buffalo Blue Cheese Bites

All the flavor of buffalo wings without the extra calories. While wings can be a good staple item on a low carb lifestyle, on days like game days, its easy to lose track and eat your weight in calories. To battle this, we’ve taken the hot flavor of wing sauce and paired it with the cream and bite of blue cheese for a much lower calorie option.

Fresh cauliflower, blue cheese crumbles and hot wing sauce. That’s it. Well, some celery if you need a bit of crunch to take away the heat pain 😉

Simple Celery and Salsa

When I get a craving for chips and salsa, I reach for the celery. I get the same great crunch and all the salsa goodness.

For those wanting chips for their salsa, Sav-A-Lot has a great dipping tortilla chip. I even found these awesome dry roasted peanuts; which make a great game day snack, too! When I checked the label I was pretty happy that they are fairly low in net carbs! Bonus!

Celery, Bacon and Cream Cheese

As a kid I loved eating celery with peanut butter and raisins. Who remembers ants on a log? Maybe we should call the low carb version bits on a log? Hmmm that just doesn’t sound right somehow.

This is another super easy snack. Put some cream cheese in the celery and sprinkle with bacon bits; all of which can be found at Sav-A-Lot.

Yes, it’s that simple!

Ham & Cream Cheese Roll Ups

When it comes time for me to make snacks for a room full of people, I try to make things which incorporate the same ingredients. That’s why I used celery with the buffalo bites, the salsa and the bits on a log. It helps to save money when you can use ingredients for more than one recipe. Same thing with the cream cheese. I used part of the block of cream cheese for the celery and the other part on these ham rolls up!

Low Carb Ham and Cream Cheese Roll Ups with Pickles | Nevermore Lane

Do you like pinwheels? I know I do, but my body doesn’t like the tortillas or wraps. To cut the bread, I use the ham as the roll up and don’t bother slicing them because I use midget dills.

TIPS: If you’re worried about the extra sodium, rinse the ham and pickles with water and blot dry. This will help with some of that extra sodium.
