One way to stay on plan is to bring something you can eat. (Just make sure you get through the line early enough to get something for yourself! Ha!) This bacon and jalapeƱo ball would be the perfect choice!

Most people enjoy a good cheese ball, and most people enjoy bacon – put the two together and you have a winner! Not only is it an easy recipe, but it's fully customizable! If you like the heat better, add a little extra jalapeƱo (and be sure to leave a few seeds to heat). If spice isn't your thing, tone it down a bit. You can also add a little grated cheddar cheese for some variety.
