Keto 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 PROTEIN WAFFLES?

It’s hard to believe that these light and crunchy Keto 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. Hunger hit within the hour.  For this reason 2 tablespoons of coconut oil added to the recipe works.  This makes the waffles moister and fulfilling for a longer time.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO PROTEIN WAFFLES?

Protein Powder

The predominant taste sensation of Keto Protein Waffles is almost neutral, unless you use vanilla, chocolate, or cookies and cream protein powder.  The waffle is light and crispy.  

WHAT NON-ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO PROTEIN WAFFLES?

The predominant taste sensation of Keto 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 non-alcoholic wine.  If adding sweetness to your waffles, choose a non alcoholic white wine.  Add a pinch of monk fruit sweetener to the wine to make it sweet without sugar or carbs.  Make sure the non alcoholic wine is sweeter than the sweet flavors on your waffles.

Zero Alcohol 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.
