The first two months of the year are prime time for resolutions, which for many folks means doing Whole30—the popular elimination diet that bans all grains, dairy, added sugars, and most processed foods. Unfortunately, it is also prime time for the Super Bowl, which—with its nachos, sour cream and onion dip, chili, and cheese puffs—is perhaps the least healthy of all the great American celebrations. But, good news: it's totally possible to keep your Whole30 promises and pig out in style, too. Try a few of these easy and delicious tweaks on classic Super Bowl snacks—like potato skins, chips and dip, and deviled eggs—and who knows, you just might never go back to your old ways.
