Yesterday morning, I woke up feeling groggy. The idea of making a Healthy (Paleo) Meatloaf Sante Fe popped into my head. Unsure of the ingredients, I found it intriguing. I must have stumbled upon it while browsing YouTube or Google for recipes, although I can’t recall exactly when.

After looking up several recipes online, I selected the best ones and considered Paleo-friendly substitutions. My Meatloaf Sante Fe turned out great. Shawn enjoyed it and asked for more. The salsa added moisture to the meat, and the flavors were vibrant and fresh. I absolutely love this recipe!

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF HEALTHY (PALEO) MEATLOAF SANTE FE? 

Canned tomatoes are an excellent source of the antioxidant lycopene, shown to help lower the risk of heart disease, prostate cancer, and macular degeneration (poor eyesight as you get older). Always look for a brand with no added sugar. While you don’t calculate your carbohydrates on the Paleo diet it is always preferable to keep added sugar down as much as possible.

WHAT ARE THE PREDOMINANT TASTE SENSATIONS OF HEALTHY (PALEO) MEATLOAF SANTE FE?

The predominant taste sensation in Healthy (Paleo) Meatloaf Sante Fe is fattiness, due to the ground beef. The other taste sensation that comes through is tanginess from the salsa. This dish explodes with flavors, as well.

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH HEALTHY (PALEO) MEATLOAF SANTE FE?

With fattiness being the predominant taste sensation in  Healthy (Paleo) Meatloaf Sante Fe as the main ingredient, choose a red wine to match. The tanginess in the meatloaf from the Sante Fe flavors will also work nicely with the wine’s natural acidity. Think Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir is a light, fruity rd.  It possesses enough weight to stand up to the beef but offers delicious tanginess from the salsa acidity.  If you add additional cheese to the meatloaf, go with a bigger red like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel, Shiraz, Grenache.

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. 

Know the sugar content before purchasing.

  • To make salsa, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender.  Pulse until combined.  Transfer to a sterilized glass jar and refrigerate until needed.
  • Preheat oven to 350 F.  To make meatloaf, in a saute pan add non-stick cooking spray.  Add onion, red pepper, yellow pepper, garlic, chipotle sauce, chili powder, and cumin.  Simmer on low until onions and peppers are soft.   Set aside.

Notes

  • The recipe baking temperature and time is an estimate.  Follow your own oven’s temperature and cooking time. It takes a gas oven 10-15 minutes to reach the desired temperature. Electric ovens can take 10 minutes longer than that.  The age of your oven will also determine the temperature, time for roasting or baking, and where you want to place your dish in the oven.  The bottom of your oven may be hotter than the top, depending on its condition.  This also includes where to set your dish under the broiler.  So use your own best judgment based on the type, condition, and age of your oven.  Prep times will also vary depending on how slow or quickly you like to work.
