I am thinking you might really like this Healthy (Paleo) Zucchini Bread.  Zucchini is anti-inflammatory.   In 2016 my shoulder was severely injured in a car accident.  I was caregiving at the time and so could not take off the time to recuperate after surgery.  So, I endured shoulder pain for over 4 years.   This was one of the reasons why I investigated and took on the Paleo lifestyle, to reduce and even eliminate the pain associated with the inflammation.

After removing grain and refined sugar from my body and undertaking the right rehabilitation the pain began to lessen and actually disappeared.  Now if I indulge in eating real ice cream or some sweet dessert (with refined sugar), my body starts to ache with pain, not only in my shoulder but everywhere.

I’ve now moved to a Keto Low-Carb lifestyle. This bread is not Keto compliant. It is Paleo compliant and fabulous if you are still incorporating fruit like pineapple in your lifestyle.

Back to zucchini…

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF HEALTHY (PALEO) ZUCCHINI BREAD?

Is this Healthy (Paleo) Zucchini Bread nutritional? Zucchini is high in antioxidants (lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene), helps your bowls (high in water and soluble fiber), improves heart health, strengthens your vision (vitamin A), reduces inflammation, and helps with weight loss and may help reduce blood sugar (low-carb).

This bread also contains fresh pineapple, which is like a super food.  This fruit is high in vitamin C, A, and beta-carotene, thus protecting your body from free radicals and boosting your immune system. Its vitamins B1 and B6 help to break down sugar and starches in the digestive system.  Pineapple’s copper content helps red blood cells synthesize.  And with potassium, this fruit controls your heart rate and blood pressure.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF HEALTHY (PALEO) ZUCCHINI BREAD?

Due to the apple sauce and pineapple in this Healthy (Paleo) Zucchini Bread, light sweetness is the predominant taste sensation. 

WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH HEALTHY (PALEO) ZUCCHINI BREAD?

With the predominant taste sensation of this Healthy (Paleo) Zucchini Bread being sweetness, choose an off-dry white wine as a match.  One with just a little sweetness, such as medium-dry Riesling or Gewürztraminer or off-dry rose. Remember, you don’t want that added sugar.

*Wine Tips: To support your Paleo or Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, 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.

Ingredients

Units Scale

1.5 cups almond flour (170 g)

1.5 cups tapioca flour (228 grams)

1 teaspoon sea salt (6 grams)

1 teaspoon Guar Gum (2 grams)

2 eggs

1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder

1 cup unsweetened apple sauce

2 cups shredded zucchini

1 cup cubed fresh pineapple (fresh or unsweetened canned)

1 cup walnut pieces


Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F (170 c).  In a food mixer or processor add all dry ingredients, egg, and apple sauce.  Mix until well blended.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer.  Fold in to mix the zucchini, pineapple cubes, and walnuts.  Transfer mix to a 4 cup (4″ X 8″) loaf pan sprayed with avocado non-stick cooking spray.  Bake loaf for 20 to 25 minutes until golden.  Cover with tinfoil and bake another 15 to 20 minutes to ensure the center of the loaf is done.  (Pineapple and apple sauce make the dough wet.) Remove from the oven.  Let the loaf cool.  When cooled, loosen sides and flip over onto a plate.  Serve at room temperature or toast in a toaster or panini press.

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.
