New Recipe from the Keto Cure Me Kitchen
Hi everyone, welcome to another blog post from Keto Cure Me.
Today I was in the Keto Cure Me kitchen, making an effort to create new recipes for my family which follow the Ketogenic diet guidelines to the letter!
I have been slowly converting all of my family favourites over to fit in with my Ketogenic diet. I will be adding more to the resources page as I go, so you will be able to add them to your Keto recipes books.
Today I wanted to use Mackerel as my key cooking ingredient as it is a great fish with lots of good qualities that can aid in the prevention of many chronic health conditions affecting large numbers of Australians and millions of others around the world.
As fish go, Mackerel is one of the best.
Mackerel is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. It also has vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E and K and minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron.
Mackerel contains a powerful antioxident, coenzyme Q10.
Some studies say that Co-Q10 may slow down the development of a fatty liver. This condition can affect both slim and obese people.
Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease is commonly associated with people who carry more weight around thier waist and its this fattening around the waist that hightens the risk factors for insulin resistance, Diabetes, heart disease and cancers.
As we get older its important to eat more oily fish and organ meats such liver as our body slows down its own production of CoQ10. We can become deficient in CoQ10 if we have developed metabolic disorders.
What is, and what does Co- Enzyme Q 10 do?
- Is an antioxident that fights free radicals in our bodies that damage our cells and DNA.
- It improves cellular health – as an antioxident it reduces the risk of some cancers such as prostate, breast, colon and renal cancers.
As fish such as Mackerel and Sardines contain such high levels of Coenzyme Q10 its important to include these fish in your Ketogenic Diet, or any diet for that matter. Beef also has CoQ10 in decent amount as well if your not so keen on oily fish.
The omega 3 fatty acids in Mackerel are excellent at reducing inflammation and helps to support organs that are weakened by disease.
If you or someone you care for is unwell, its a great idea to feed them oily fish (and my other favourite is bone broth). Mackerel improves blood flow and can assist in lowering your blood pressure. Oily fish help your immunity.
For all of the great benefits that Mackerel has, it isnt recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers as some fish is sourced from polluted waters and could impact negatively on the developing nervouse system of the baby. That said, there are companies that sell canned fish that is sourced from unpolluted waters and are fished in a sustainable manner.
So this brings me back to my new Keto Cure Me Mackerel and Cauliflower Bake!
