KETO LOW-CARB BAKED FETA (HEART HEALTHY)
On this Keto Low-Carb journey, I absolutely love experimenting with the world of vegan cheese. I think you’ll like this Keto Low-Carb Baked Feta. I’m a big cheese fan as it stands. So, I’m pretty picky about dishes tasting as good as possible when it comes to vegan cheese. I absolutely love this feta! It can be served as a dip or in chunks within a salad. You can make the feta using raw almonds, but it’s more and messier work. Just use almond flour. I like this recipe because it’s fast and simple.
It’s the yogurt and lemon juice that gives this feta tang. I add the lemon zest, so there is a hint of bitterness on the finish just like dairy feta. And you may want to experiment with the amount of salt used. Greek feta is very salty. So, this recipe can take more salt if you desire.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB BAKED FETA?

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB BAKED FETA?
With the predominant taste sensations of this Keto Low-Carb Baked Feta being tangy and salty, choose a white wine with lots of clean acidity to match. A crisp, dry white wine is just right. The wine’s acidity will nicely offset the saltiness while harmonizing with the tangy flavour from the fresh lemon. Wines to consider include: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Grigio, dry Riesling, will work nicely.
*Wine Tips: To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, choose low-carb, low-sugar, and low-alcohol wines that are free of additives and artificial coloring. Include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Remember, your liver will process alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Your body will also metabolize alcohol as fuel before using food. This can slow fat burning and may cause your body to store carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Alcohol consumption also stimulates the appetite. So, drink low-sugar, low-carb, and low alcohol wines in moderation.

WHAT IS SHARI MAC’S PRODUCT RECOMMENDATION FOR YOUR KETO LOW-CARB DIET?
I’m a huge fan of the Ninja products. In the past, I’ve gone through a counter-top convection oven every couple of years. This Ninja 1800-watt oven is a work horse! It is a must for me to support my Keto diet. Since buying this Ninja I have not turned on my oven in months! Amazing in the summer! No heat in the kitchen from the traditional oven. I use the air-fryer for all our proteins every day. All my air-fried favorites have less bad saturated fat and therefore fewer calories. I cut chicken breasts in half, horizontally, and air-fry them for 20 minutes. You can set the temperature and timer for all sorts of foods and walk away from the kitchen. The machine will shut off automatically at the right time. My proteins are crispy on the outside and super juicy
