Every. Single. Year.
It’s not like I don’t know February is coming. But somehow I always find myself panicking before that first Sunday. Because when the Ultimate Game Day is just around the corner, only one serious question remains.
What will we eat?
Priorities, people. Priorities. When there are pigskin fans in your home, there’s only one thing that makes or breaks the game.
Food. And beer. And a working TV. And those comic relief commercial breaks.
Ok, ok. But back to food.
This Sunday the football food will be flowing at my house. You can be sure there will be lots of yelling, high-fiving, and screaming at the TV. All me. (yes, and husband too, of course)
If it’s crunch time and you need some ideas to munch on, check out these good Game Day options for those Low Fodmap, Gluten and Dairy Free fans.
1. Shredded Chicken Lettuce Wraps (LF, GF, DF)
Skinnytaste has an awesome recipe for easy crock pot shredded chicken.
Low Fodmap adjustments: Use green onion, omit garlic. Use Progresso chicken broth or water to cover chicken. Add your favorite Low Fodmap BBQ or Buffalo sauce and wrap it up in lettuce!
2. Hearty No-Bean Chili (LF, GF, DF)
Dairy Free: Omit the cheese and sour cream if you’re going for a dairy free option.
3. Chicken Salad (LF, GF, DF)
4. Loaded Nachos (LF, GF, DF)
Check out Pioneer Woman’s recipe here for a great Super Bowl food!
Low Fodmap adjustments: Use green onion. Chili powder has garlic but you could substitute with a little Chipotle Chili pepper instead. Omit beans unless you can tolerate them, use corn tortilla chips. Top with lactose-free sour cream and ⅛ of an avocado!
Dairy Free: omit the cheese
5. Pico de Gallo or Salsa with Tortilla Chips (LF, GF, DF)
Pioneer woman has THE BEST pico de gallo recipe. Or blend it up and make it a salsa!

Use Hellman’s Regular Mayo which is garlic free!
