Are there any football fans out there? With the Superbowl coming up this Sunday there is always a lot of talk around our house about what kind of delicious food we should make to eat during the game. We have a few favorites that we like to have that I have redone to make diabetic friendly. I was wondering if any of you have some good football food favorites that are diabetic friendly that you would like to share?

If you are looking for more ideas here is a great collection of low carb football snack recipes and ideas:

I love meat, cheese and crackers so what I do do it get some small tomatoes. I found some unique brown ones that are very tasty, and I sliced those to use as the "cracker" part and put the cheese and meat on top of that. YUMMY.

I also do wings naked so there is not breading on them. Toss them in some homemade hot or mild sauce and serve with the celery. If you don't pig out on the blue cheese dressing you do okay.

Hummus is great on veggies so you get the crunch without the carbs of pita chips or crackers.

The key for me is to not make too much. Let it get all eaten up by the family and friends. Nothing left over is always a good thing for me.

Make your own salsa! You can also make your own tortilla chips using low carb tortillas. Sprinkle with salt or cinnamon and sugar. You could make your own naked meatballs (no sauce). Almonds look like footballs…Yummy.
Think raw foods and protein. All that processed stuff will likely be higher in carbs.

Jeanette thanks for the idea, there are some great recipes in the slideshows, but I would have to omit the salt or substitute because I'm on a no sodium diet, but I love the recipes, thanks again

Slice a red bell pepper so it's in 'rings', mix up some egg whites, black pepper, garlic, onion, diced turkey or chicken breast, and shredded mozzerella. Drop the pepper ring in a fry pan with preheated olive oil, fill the center of the ring with egg mixture, cook for like a minute and flip it over for another minute. Eat it that way for no carb, or put it in top of a 1/2 of a whole grain English muffin for lo carb.
And maybe a Michelob Ultra…

Thanks for the idea. I love my eggs! but now I can try your recipe and have it feel more like a Holiday Breakfast instead of just Breakfast. With the added variety of meats, I'll make this for lunch or dinner, too!

I don't like peppers, but this still sounds really good. I suppose I could use a cookie cutter shape and put it in the pan and do the same thing. Yummy

I do that too for breakfast, either a cookie cutter or an open top of a mason jar lid works well.

I have snowmen, gingerbread men and snowflakes...a little seasonal, but the mason jar lids are a great fill in and I have a ton of those.
