KETO LOW-CARB SALMON CANAPES
Before we get to our Keto Low-Carb Salmon Canapes, let’s talk fat.
In the 90s I was not following a KETO lifestyle. But I did meet this interesting Canadian author named Udo Erasmus who had written a book called “Fats that Heal and Fats That Kill.” During the ’90s no one really wanted to hear that eating fat could be good for us. The fat-free movement (fad) was in full swing and was considered to be a healthy way to live. Little did I know back then how important his message was and remains while I continue to follow this KETO path.
Our nutritional awareness has evolved since then. Udo was well ahead of his time. This is still one of the best books I’ve ever read on how we require healthy fat. His book has since sold more than 250,000 copies. Udo also produces a line of Udo’s Choice healthy fats for humans and animals and has sold over 25,000,000 bottles! He sells probiotics, fresh omega oils, digestive enzymes, super greens, prebiotic fiber, and pet supplements.
Udo shares that more physical health problems come from bad oils than from any other part of nutrition. He also says that more physical health benefits come from good (undamaged) oils than from any other part of nutrition.
He says, “Of all your foods, oils are the most neglected, complicated, misunderstood, sensitive, and misrepresented. Most people are confused about their value to health. Two opposite stories must be told about oils and health. When you know which fats/oils are beneficial and which ones hurt you, you can choose the ones for health. Until then, you won’t know which ones to buy, or how to use the fats/oils you buy.
Oils are the most sensitive and therefore most easily damaged of the essential nutrients. Light, oxygen in the air, and high temperature damage them, and then they damage your body. You don’t know how your oils are made, and you don’t know how your oils SHOULD be made to improve and maintain your health. Read on and find out.”
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB SALMON & AVOCADO MAYO CANAPES?
What is the nutational value of Keto Low-Carb Salmon Canapes? Avocado and canned salmon are 2 fabulous Keto Low-Carb ingredients to enjoy, especially when put together. They provide a power house of Omega-3. Canned Salmon is super healthy. Canned salmon can be a great source of nutrition, as it is packed with essential nutrients that your body needs. One of the most notable benefits of canned salmon is its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to reduce inflammation and improve heart health. Canned salmon is also a great source of protein, with a single serving containing around 22 grams of protein. Additionally, canned salmon is rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, vitamin B12, and selenium. Vitamin D is important for bone health, while vitamin B12 is essential for maintaining healthy nerves and red blood cells. Selenium is an important antioxidant that can help to protect against cellular damage. Overall, canned salmon can be a nutritious addition to any diet, providing a range of essential nutrients that can help to support your overall health and wellbeing. One ounce of canned salmon contains 0g total carbs, 0g net carbs, 1.8g fat, 5.8g protein, and 41 calories. It is also low in mercury compared to tuna. Look for wild salmon as it is considered to be safer than farmed when it comes to pesticides and both are less likely to contain possible carcinogens called PCBs.
WHAT IS THE RECIPE TASTE PROFILE FOR KETO LOW-CARB SALMON & AVOCADO MAYO CANAPES?
The predominant sensation in this Keto Low-Carb Salmon Canapes recipe is chemo-sensory, meaning texture. The main texture of this dish is fattiness from the salmon and homemade mayo. It’s super healthy and rich in flavour.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB SALMON & AVOCADO MAYO CANAPES?
What wine works with Keto Low-Carb Salmon Canapes? We have some richness here due to the fattiness of salmon and the homemade mayo with a nice bite to the dish. Choose a wine partner with enough weight to match the fattiness of the salmon and the fattiness of oil in the homemade mayo. A full-bodied white wine or light, fruity red wine would do the trick. Think in terms of buttery Chardonnay (white) or light, fruity red (Pinot Noir or Gamay).
*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.
WHAT CANNED SALMON SHOULD YOU BUY?
WHAT ARE THE HEALTHY AND UNHEALTHY FATS?
Healthy fats come from monounsaturated and polyunsaturated varieties.
Polyunsaturated fats are those found in oily fish like sardines, anchovies, trout, and salmon. One of the least expensive ways and “whole food” ways to get some or even all of your daily requirement of Omega-3 is to eat canned salmon. A can of wild Sockeye Salmon contains 0 grams of trans fats (the bad one), 44 grams of protein and 5 grams of Omega-3. Our daily requirement is between 250 and 500 mg. A can of salmon offers 1,080 milligrams.
Plant oils are polyunsaturated. They include safflower seeds and almond butter.
Monounsaturated fats are found in olive oil, some nuts (hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, almonds, pecans) and avocados. Research reveals that polyunsaturated fats (and, to a lesser extent, monounsaturated fats) have been shown to lower bad cholesterol levels, helping to keep your heart healthy.
Avocado Oil is 63% monounsaturated. Monounsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature but solidify in the refrigerator. They are believed to help reduce bad cholesterol levels in the blood and therefore lower the risk of heart disease and strokes. Monounsaturated fats also help to speed up your basal metabolic rate (BMR). This is the rate at which calories are burned when you’re in a state of rest. The calories are used to sustain basic functions such as cell repair, maintain body internal temperature and pump blood throughout the cells.
My husband and I try to get as much of our daily nutrition as possible through whole foods. For example, my husband eats an avocado every single day. He says that in addition to avocados cleaning the arteries, it helps the body produce glutathione, a compound that aids the liver in expelling toxins. Being a food addict, I tend to enjoy dishes made from avocado, such as guacamole.
Unlike other fruits, avocado is mostly made up of 85% healthy fat rather than carbohydrate. Some of its nutrients include Omega-3, vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, potassium, Vitamins B5 and B6 and vitamin E. The avocado has smaller amounts of magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc, phosphorous, vitamin A and B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin).
As a monounsaturated fatty acid, avocado has also been shown to:
- Ease arthritic pain, due to anti-inflammatory properties from its carotenoids and phytosterols and polyhydroxylated fatty alcohols (PFA’s)
- Lower blood pressure, due to its combination of Omega-3’s, oleic acid and Potassium
- Increase blood flow, due to its high vitamin K content, thus decreasing the risk of stroke which can lead to vascular dementia
- Help lower our risk of heart disease
- Prevent insulin resistance which can lead to type 2 diabetes and dementia
- Prevent the formation of brain tangles, due to its high Folate
- Support the digestive tract to increase absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, due to its Oleic acid
