KETO LOW-CARB GRANOLA (HEART HEALTHY)
Love this Keto Low-Carb Granola! In following a Keto Low-Carb diet and consuming fewer carbs, my husband Shawn and I focus on making sure we get enough fiber. When consuming high protein and low carbs (less than 20 grams per day), it can be challenging to get enough fiber to keep bowel movements healthy and regular.
In fact, North Americans on average, fall short of their daily fiber requirement when eating a regular diet. The average man and woman eat about 15 to 18 grams of fiber. The daily requirement for men is 38 grams and 25 grams for women.
Getting enough fiber daily is vital to our gut and overall health. The scrub-brush effect of fiber cleans out bacteria and waste and helps buildup move smoothly through our intestines. This reduces the risk of developing colon cancer. Fiber also helps keep our bowel movements regular.
I made this grain-free granola packed with seeds and nuts that my husband and I eat daily. I incorporate the granola into desserts.
The granola is super high in protein, and healthy fats and is made up of both soluble fiber and insoluble fiber. It’s also packed with super nutritional vitamins and minerals. In fact, a couple of spoonfuls of this granola each day will not only keep your bowels operating effectively, but help to lower your risk of developing diabetes, help lower inflammation and keep your muscles, bones, and heart-healthy.
Our bowel requires both soluble and insoluble fiber to function. Soluble fiber helps to improve digestion and lower blood sugar, while insoluble fiber softens the stool, making it easier to pass through the intestines. Scientific evidence now shows that eating our daily fiber requirement will improve insulin resistance and lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB GRANOLA?
You can make recipes using this Keto Low-Carb Granola or enjoy a bowl with some almond milk. The granola is nutty and crunchy and heavy in weight, so you don’t need much. Choose a white wine with some buttery character and weight, such as Chardonnay. If you add berries to the granola you’ll need to choose a wine with sweetness to match. In following a Keto diet or in living a low-carb lifestyle, we don’t want to use up your carbs on a glass of wine. Why add the extra carbs to your meal when you can find zero carb wines! You have a couple of options:
- Drink whatever wine you like (as long as it’s bone dry) and don’t worry about pairing the wine to dish. Enjoy your wine the way you like it.
- If you like to create harmony between the wine and the food, you’ll need some sweetness in the wine to match the granola and berries sweetness. Add a pinch of stevia or monk fruit sweetener to your glass of wine. Choose a white like Riesling or Gewurztraminer or a pink rose. These varieties taste great when bone dry or sweet. So they taste great with the added sweetener. The wine’s sweetness will harmonize with the sweetness from the berries.
*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?
OMG, the Ninja NC301 CREAMi Ice Cream Maker is the BEST appliance I’ve bought for myself to support my Keto diet. I stand behind this product 100%. I eat healthy high protein, sugar-free ice cream every night. I experiment with different ingredient combinations all the time. I purchased 5 additional containers so that I can make a week’s worth of ice cream at one time. I’ve made ice cream with cottage cheese and almond milk with protein powder; tofu with almond milk and protein powder; fat-free plain yogurt with almond milk and sugar-free jello and more! The machine shaves frozen pints perfectly with its one-touch programs.. You can prepare ice cream, sorbet, gelato, milkshake, smoothie bowl, lite ice cream and more. Prep your base, freeze overnight, process, and enjoy!
Sometimes it takes more than one spin to get your desired texture. Select the re-spin function if, after processing, you want your processed treat softer and creamier. This unit is ONLY compatible with the Ninja CREAMi NC299 and NC300 pint accessories. It will NOT fit the NC100, NC200 or NC500 Series pints.
With the Ninja Creami you can enjoy healthy treats that taste just as good as regular ice cream loaded in bad saturated fat, sugar, and preservatives.Print
