SHARING EASY KETO RECIPES WITH YOU. YOU HAVE EVERYTHING TO LOSE
Hi, I’m Shari MAC
Hello, I’m Shari MAC, a Status Metis Indigenous person. I’m on a heartfelt mission to inspire and empower you to become the best version of yourself-physically, emotionally, and mentally- through the transformative power of the Keto Diet and Low-Carb lifestyle.
With over three decades in the vibrant world of gourmet food and wine, I’ve personally embraced the keto journey after facing a 70-pound weight gain. Now, as a devoted food writer, recipe enthusiast, and photographer, I’ve crafted this blog brimming with Keto and Low-Carb recipes, thoughtfully categorized for your ease and convenience.
Every recipe comes with a dedicated wine note, drawing from my extensive 30-year experience as a food and wine writer, columnist, and cookbook author. I understand the joy of pairing a glass of wine with your culinary creation(s). My wine notes are crafted from my expertise in sensory science, aligning each wine with the tastes, flavors, and textures of the dish.
It’s crucial, however, to opt for non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low to zero sugar.
Choose quality non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low to zero sugar. Why? Because alcohol does not support a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Your liver processes 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. This can cause us to eat more.
Alcohol metabolizes mainly in the liver, forming acetaldehyde, a harmful compound damaging cells and tissues. This process can lead to liver damage, inflammation, and increased cancer risk, especially with heavy drinking. Besides, alcohol metabolism can spike blood sugar, dehydrate the body, and disrupt normal functions. Overall, excessive alcohol intake poses significant health risks, including liver diseases and cancer.
Non-alcoholic wines provide the same positive, psychological benefits as the legacy ones. Non-alcoholic wines possess the same ideas of the farmer’s relationship and struggle with mother nature, of culture and family, agriculture and science. Without the negative effects of alcohol, non-alcoholic wines provide us with the same ideas of romance and entertaining family and friends. You can still enjoy the ritual of nosing the wine, swirling the glass, sipping and chewing! Non-alcoholic wines are healthy, containing antioxidants and polyphenols derived from the grapes, which have anti-inflammatory properties and support heart health.
Know the sugar content before purchasing and don’t forget to include your wine carb macros as part of your meal. Cheers to savoring wine responsibly on your health-conscious journey.
My commitment goes beyond the kitchen. I want you to love your heart! This dedication is deeply personal, driven by the loss of my father, brother, and mother to heart disease within a brief 1.3 years.
Sharing my mother’s heartbreaking experience, I recognize the critical need to advocate for heart health, especially in women, whose varied expressions of heart disease often lead to delayed treatments. While I regret my past lack of awareness, it fuels my present duty to prioritize and educate women about maintaining strong and healthy hearts.
Join me in this empowering journey; let’s spread the word and encourage every woman in our lives to embrace heart health. Despite my genetic predisposition, the Keto diet and low-carb lifestyle has made me the healthiest in my family, emphasizing the crucial role of dietary choices.
Dive into the blog’s “Keto Heart Healthy” section, where each recipe is a celebration of whole, low-carb foods, healthy fats, and a commitment to avoiding excessive saturated fats and processed ingredients. Non-alcoholic wine is also heart healthy! My hope is that these recipes not only tantalize your taste buds but also contribute to a healthier heart.
I invite you to connect with me-share your thoughts through comments, find me on Facebook and Instagram, or drop me an email. Let’s embark on this empowering journey together, championing heart health and relishing delectable, health-conscious recipes.
