Hope you’re going to like this Keto Cajun Spice Mix!  Shawn and I enjoy turkey thighs on a regular basis.  So, I’m always hunting for new ways to enjoy this poultry.  I decided to use my Cajun spice mix on the thighs.  The mix is both salt-free and sugar-free.  We watch our sodium regularly so we are always aware of our real weight.

You can use this Cajun spice mix in so many ways.  Use the seasoning on fish (blackened salmon) and seafood, chicken, beef, turkey, pork, and vegetables.  It tastes fabulous in soups and stews, in breakfast eggs, in casseroles, on tacos, and more.  Use this seasoning in your Keto Low-Carb ketchup to glaze meatloaf or as a BBQ sauce for chicken and ribs.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO CAJUN SPICE MIX?

This Keto Cajun Seasoning is salt-free and sugar-free.  Yes, it is important to include sodium in your Keto diet and when you’re aiming for or remaining in Ketosis.  However, if you’re enjoying a low-Carb lifestyle, try to keep your sodium in check.  The daily recommended amount is between 1500 and 2300 mg per day.   If your sodium intake is too low you may increase your risk of insulin resistance, heart failure, increase the risk of raising LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides, and a higher risk of hyponatremia (low blood levels of sodium).   That said, most people have far too much sodium in their diet.  It’s vital to maintain the ideal amount.  Moving to the side of lower (not absent) sodium has benefits.

A low sodium lifestyle offers a plethora of health benefits, such as helping to:
  • Diminish the risk of a heart attack
  • Lowers LDL cholesterol
  • Prevents congestive heart failure
  • Reduces the risk of kidney damage
  • May reduce the risk of a stroke
  • Decreases the risk of a brain aneurysm
  • Preserves vision
  • Mitigates the risk of diabetes
  • Enhances memory
  • Might lower the risk of dementia
  • Minimizes the hardening and thickening of arteries
  • Likely to reduce bloating and swelling
  • Mitigates salt cravings
  • Lessens headaches
  • Strengthens bones
  • Helps to diminish kidney stones
  • Enables the heart to pump effectively
  • Decreases the risk of stomach cancer

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO CAJUN SPICE MIX?

KETO LOW-CARB CAJUN SPICE MIX

KETO LOW-CARB CAJUN SPICE MIX

This  Keto Low-Carb Cajun Spice Mix has predominant heat and spice from the cayenne and chili flakes, along with the flavour from the spices.  Some herbal tones from the oregano and thyme, along with a depth of flavour from the garlic and onion powders.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO CAJUN SPICE MIX?

The predominant flavour sensation of this spice mix is heat and spiciness due to the cayenne and chili flakes.  For this reason, you need a wine with plenty of sweetness to match.  The more heat and spice, the greater the sweetness is required in the wine.  In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to waste our carbs on the wine!  We have a couple of options here.  You may just enjoy drinking your favorite wine, whether it complements the food or not.  Drink whatever you like.  Or, he next option is to cut back on the heat in the spice mix completely, leaving only the spiciness.  Make the recipe without the cayenne. This way you can enjoy a crisp, fruity white like Riesling or light, fruity red like Pinot Noir with your dish.  Or for the non-traditionalists, add a pinch of stevia or monk fruit to your glass of dry wine to make it sweet.  The wine’s sweeetness will nicely offset the heat and spice.  The choice is yours.

WINE TIPS:
ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.
