4 Healthy Dishes to Enjoy With Wine

Eating healthy in the new year doesn’t mean depriving yourself of all things. For us, this especially means wine.

There are even some health benefits to drinking our favorite bottles: wine has antioxidants, which can boost your immune system and can lower cholesterol, just to name a few.

The whole experience of wine is only amplified with a great meal. So, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite recipes to pair with Twelfth Night wines.

Slow cooked Bolognese with Sweet Potato Spaghetti

This classic meal is made paleo- friendly by substituting pasta with currently popular sweet potato noodles. Almost any type of vegetable can be substituted if you wanted a truly low-carb option (we love zucchini noodles). This easy meal can be enjoyed with most red wines, like our Twelfth Night Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir can help to raise good cholesterol while lowering bad cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.

 

Turkey Meatballs with Slaw Dressing

Healthy Meals

This salad is chock full of great nutrients with a mix of fruits, veggies, cheeses, and also good fats. This is what they mean when nutrition experts tell us to “eat the rainbow.” It will leave you feeling full, satisfied, and excited to cook the recipe over and over again.  Pair with a zesty white wine like our Twelfth Night Sauvignon Blanc, which contains antioxidants and won’t leave you feeling awful the next day.

 

Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup

Perfect for chilly weather, this chicken tortilla soup is free of gluten and dairy, and is still extremely satisfying. The best part about it is its simplicity.  Put it all in a pot and let it sit for 2 hours worry free and pair with our Twelfth Night Riesling. This will complement the spiciness and bring out distinct lime flavors and fruity accents. White wines like Riesling can act as an anti-inflammatory to possibly reduce the pains of arthritis and osteoporosis.

Eggplant Pizza

These mini pizzas are fun to make and fun to eat. Top them with a low-fat cheese or vegan cheese, and in-season vegetables for a filling dinner. This low-carb dish tastes even better with a drizzle of balsamic and a glass of our Twelfth Night Pinot Noir Rosé.  Rosé is not just for summer either. You can enjoy it all year round!
