Hi, everyone! Today’s post is something a little different from my friend Maggie at Cancerv.me. When she reached out with a post idea to share her inspiring and motivating story (as well as a super tasty raw vegan keto broccoli salad recipe), I was honored […]
Have you ever wondered why MCT oil is “better” for keto than coconut oil? Or how to start incorporating intermittent fasting into your routine? I know you have, because I get questions like this every day in my inbox. While I love talking to everyone […]
This past winter, I had the absolute honor (and pleasure!!) of working with the prepared foods team at Whole Foods Market to have vegan keto dishes featured on their hot bars. The dishes were released in 14 states (!!!) and were well-received by vegans and non-vegans alike. It was seriously one of the coolest experiences I’ve had, and going into my local WFM and being able to buy my own food on the hot bar was surreal. Since not everyone was able to find these dishes at their local store, and since they’ve made their way off of the food bars, I’ve decided to start posting them here. First up: Sauteed Kale & Butternut Squash with Toasted Pecans.
Breakfast can be one of the hardest meals to replace when going vegan keto, especially if you’re used to eating convenience foods. While I do enjoy a nice, hearty bowl of noatmeal or chia pudding, some days you just want something a little more substantial […]
I really love peanut butter and all things associated with this delicious food. It’s a solid source of lysine, an essential amino acid found primarily in beans (for plant sources, at least). It can be difficult to obtain on a vegan keto diet, so I’m using that as justification for eating peanut butter all the time. In addition to using it for protein bars, and a straight-from-the-jar treat, I also love making peanut sauces and putting them on everything, like this super easy vegan keto tempeh satay with peanut sauce.
Hiking is pretty much my favorite outdoor activity. Every summer/fall, my sister-in-law and I drive up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire to go hike up a few of NH’s 4000-footers. We like to treat these trips as little de-stressing vacations as well, so usually we find a reasonable hotel and plan 2-3 days worth of hikes in the surrounding area. We also tend to grab a salad somewhere for dinner, so we really only need to pack food for the actual hiking portion of the trip.
I always crave fresh berries in the summertime. I don’t know whether it’s the heat or the fact that I’m more active in warmer months, but either way, I tend to listen to my body and eat the darn things. Berries are pretty much my […]
