KETO STUFFED PORK CHOPS (HEART HEALTHY)
I believe you’ll enjoy these Keto Stuffed Pork Chops. I follow a pretty committed Keto Low-Carb path, depending on my exercise regime. My husband Shawn participates because I do most of the cooking. However, we both focus on protein as the primary source of our meals because of our high-intensity workouts, weight lifting. For this reason, I’m always hunting for Keto Low-Carb ways to enjoy pork chops. They are tasty, loaded with protein, and inexpensive.
WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO STUFFED PORK CHOPS (HEART HEALTHY)?
A 6-ounce portion of the Keto Low-Carb Stuffed Pork Chops offers about 35.17 grams of protein. One chop offers more than enough protein per meal when the recommended amount is about 25 grams. The chop is one of the leaner cuts and is an excellent source of important vitamins and minerals, such as thiamin, selenium, protein, niacin, vitamin B-6 and phosphorus, zinc, riboflavin, and potassium. The stuffing incorporates fresh spinach, too. Fresh spinach is a highly nutritious leafy green vegetable that is low in calories but packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. A 100-gram serving of spinach provides only 23 calories, but it also contains 2.9 grams of protein, 3.6 grams of carbohydrates, and 2.2 grams of fiber. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamins A, C, K, and folate, as well as minerals such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. In addition, spinach is rich in plant compounds like flavonoids and carotenoids, which have been linked to various health benefits such as reducing inflammation and improving heart health. So, incorporating fresh spinach into your diet can be an easy and delicious way to boost your nutrient intake.
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO STUFFED PORK CHOPS?
The predominant taste sensation of the Keto Stuffed Pork Chops is umami that comes from the nutritional yeast in the stuffing, as well as from the cooked pork. In fact, pork happens to be exceptionally high in umami, which is roundness and depth of flavour.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO STUFFED PORK CHOPS?
With the predominant taste sensation of this recipe being umami from the pork and a creamy mouth feel in the stuffing , you can go with either a full-bodied white or a light, fruity red wine. You’ll want this added richness in the wine to match the creaminess of the ricotta stuffing. Think buttery Chardonnay or light, fruity Pinot Noir (red).
*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.

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.
