KETO LOW-CARB PROTEIN WAFFLES (HEART HEALTHY)
Keto Low-Carb Protein Waffles are an Integral part of my lifestyle.
Classic pancakes and waffles are comfort foods. Let’s face it, pancakes and waffles are made from wheat-based refined flour. Refined carbs cause rapid spikes in our blood sugar and insulin levels. That feeling of comfort is really short-lived. What follows is a drop in blood sugar, causing hunger and cravings. Add to this that pancakes and waffles are usually drenched in high sugar syrup. The whole meal promotes insulin resistance and increases the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and other major illnesses and diseases.
These Keto, high protein waffles are a treat. They allow you to experience the same satisfying tastes and flavors, all the while feeding goodness into your body. Keto waffles deliver protein to your body with no insulin spikes. A super healthy treat!
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO LOW-CARB PROTEIN WAFFLES?
It’s hard to believe that these light and crunchy Keto Low-Carb Protein Waffles are nutritious! The whey protein powder can be of benefit to your diet and health. If you are sedentary and do little physical exercise, the addition of whey protein in your diet may be unnecessary. However, if you are a weight lifter, athlete, or person who regularly lifts weights to keep strong, you may discover that the additional protein (in this form) actually helps you gain muscle and lose fat.
One scoop of whey protein (37 g) offers 0.5 fat, only 50 mg of sodium, zero sugars, 2 carbohydrates, and 25 grams of quality protein. This scoop has only 125 calories. I found that the waffles with sugar-free “maple syrup”, blueberries, and almonds did not sustain me for very long. I felt hungry within an hour. I have added 2 tablespoons of coconut oil to the recipe. This makes the waffles moister and fulfilling for a longer time.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO LOW-CARB PROTEIN WAFFLES?
The predominant taste sensation of Keto Low-Carb Protein Waffles is almost neutral, unless you use vanilla, chocolate, or cookies and cream protein powder. The waffle is light and crispy.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO LOW-CARB PROTEIN WAFFLES?
The predominant taste sensation of Keto Low-Carb Protein Waffles is almost neutral, unless you use vanilla, chocolate, or cookies and cream protein powder. You also need to include whatever ingredient flavors you are adding to your waffles when thinking wine. Are you adding sugar-free maple syrup? Or are you using the waffles as sandwich bread? So, consider all the ingredient flavors you choose to include when picking a matching wine.
*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.
