KETO LOW-CARB CAJUN SPICE MIX (HEART HEALTHY)
Hope you’re going to like this Keto Low-Carb 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 LOW-CARB CAJUN SPICE MIX?
This Keto Low-Carb 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:
· lower blood pressure
· reduce the risk of a heart attack
· lower LDL cholesterol
· prevent congestive heart failure
· decrease the risk of kidney damage
· prevent the risk of a stroke
· lessen the risk of a brain aneurysm
· protect vision
· reduce the risk of diabetes
· improve memory
· lower the risk of dementia
· reduce the hardening and thickening of arteries
· reduce bloating and swelling
· reduce salt cravings
· decrease headaches
· build stronger bones
· reduce kidney stones
· allow the heart to pump effectively
· lower the risk of stomach cancer
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF 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 LOW-CARB 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! Better to sip dry wines with zero carbs. We have a couple of options here. You may just enjoy drinking your favorite wine, whether it complements the food or not. The next option is to cut back on the heat in the spice mix completely, leaving only the spiciness. This way you can enjoy a crisp, fruity white like Riesling or light, fruity red like Pinot Noir. 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: To maintain 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.
