Every February, hundreds of millions of Americans gather around their TVs to watch the Super Bowl on Super Bowl Sunday. This year, Super Bowl Sunday falls on February 3, and this day is considered an unofficial holiday in the US. As is always the case with holidays, food will be front and center.
If you're planning to host this season's bash, then you're probably eager to find some Super Bowl snacks that will fit your keto diet plan. We've gathered 7 delicious and easy recipes we think you'll appreciate. But before you head on to the recipes, let's have a short rundown of Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl is an annually held championship game of the National Football League (NFL). And while the Super Bowl is US-based, it happens to be the most-watched single-day sporting event in the world.
It all began in the 1960s, when NFL and American Football League (AFL), which were rivals, negotiated an agreement to merge by 1970. The first Super Bowl was originally called “AFL-NFL World Championship Game” and was held in 1966. Later on, AFL Kansas City Chief’s owner proposed to call the game “Super Bowl.”
The NFL then split into the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC). The champions of each now play in the Super Bowl.
One important and interesting fact about Super Bowl is that it is the second-largest food consumption day, right after Thanksgiving.
The Big Game is a great occasion to indulge in delicious recipes like these 3 one-pot meals. But snacks seem to be everyone’s game day favorite; they’re easy to make, affordable, and delicious. Make them the day before the Big Game and share them with your keto loving guests.
What better way to open a Super Bowl Ceremony than with a toast?

Instead of regular cheesecake, make these lovely mini cheesecakes to fit the occasion. They're easy to eat in one bite and can feed a crowd of nine. The ingredients used you probably already have in your kitchen, which means less time spent shopping before the Big Game.
