You are going to love the flavours of this Keto Lazy Wild Mushroom Pate!  Our Keto path allow us to enjoy nuts. I love to incorporate nuts into my cooking because they add flavour, texture, and substance to almost every course within a meal, from appetizers to desserts. They are also a super healthy source of fat, a high source of protein, and calcium!

Pate is super easy to make and yet it has this gourmet appeal. As a food and wine writer, I ate a lot of different pates made by professional chefs. While we can enjoy meat-based pate on the Keto and Paleo paths, nut-based versions are extremely healthy, easy to make, and super filling.

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO WILD MUSHROOM?

Nuts for Keto Wild Mushroom Pate

What is the nutritional valu of this Keto Wild Mushroom Pate? I used to be under the impression that nuts are high in fat and hard to digest, so should be avoided. But nuts have too much goodness to ignore.

Cashews: Cashews are my favorite. A native of eastern Brazil, cashews are the seeds of the cashew apple that grows on the cashew tree. Contrary to popular belief, cashews have less fat than other nuts. About 75% of the fat within this seed is an unsaturated fatty acid called ‘oleic acid.’ Oleic acid is the same monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. And we know the benefits of olive oil!

Science now reveals that oleic acid is good for the heart. Research tells us that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels. Elevated triglycerides are related to heart disease.

Pistachios should be considered a super food. Full of fiber and protein, they are low in calories and fat and contain a good source of 30 different vitamins, minerals, and phyto-nutrients, including copper, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and B6. And like red wine, pistachios also possess phenolic compounds, an antioxidant. Have you heard of plant sterols or phytosterol? Well, pistachios possess this benefit, too. Plant sterols contain cholesterol-lowering properties.

I’ve always incorporated walnuts into my pesto, as their pleasant bitterness complements red wine. Like other nuts, walnuts are high in fiber, vitamins B and E, magnesium, antioxidants, plant sterols, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Of all the varieties, walnuts contain higher amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.

Wild Mushrooms: Wild mushrooms offer a plethora of health benefits, starting with their rich nutrient profile. Packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, they contribute to overall well-being and immune system support. The unique compounds found in wild mushrooms, such as beta-glucans, have been linked to potential anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Additionally, wild mushrooms can be a valuable source of vitamin D when exposed to sunlight, aiding in bone health and immune function. Incorporating these nutrient-dense fungi into your diet may contribute to a diverse and healthful nutritional intake.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO WILD MUSHROOM PATE?

What wine harmonizes with Keto Lazy Wild Mushroom Pate? Cashews and walnuts demand a huge white or a big red. This pate is heavy with the olive oil and nuts.  Go for a big barrel fermented and/or aged Chardonnay.  Or opt for a full-bodied, rich earthy red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot.  

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.
