When I was a kid, my dad once asked my mom to buy some more snacks because football season was coming up. She replied that he didn’t even like football, and he says “I don’t care. If it involves food, I like it”. Ditto. I’ve never really been into sports much, but I’m a big snack fan. Every Superbowl, I root for team snacks.

These 40+ recipes are perfect for game day, or really any party! They’re paleo, AIP, and many are Whole30, but they’re so delicious that all of your guests will love them!
