Vegan Keto Maple Walnut Milk

Vegan Keto Maple Walnut Milk

The other day, I wandered around Trader Joe’s with a friend of mine and we ended up finding their maple oat milk. Of course, it was pretty high in carbs and definitely not keto-friendly, but it got me thinking, and inspired me to try to…

I promised myself that I would wait a little longer before going crazy with pumpkin spice recipes, and yet here we are… At the same time, the air where I am is cool and crisp and it just feels right to follow my heart (and…

Low Carb Vegan Basic Poke

Low Carb Vegan Basic Poke

If you’ve been following me here at Meat Free Keto for a while, you know that I enjoy drawing inspiration from various cuisines for my recipes. I think it’s really fun to explore other cultures through food, ingredients and rituals around eating. Fun fact: I actually wanted to get a Masters Degree in Gastronomy with a focus on Food & Culture, but I couldn’t justify the expense, just for the fun of it. Anywho, my husband and I wanted to plan a trip to Hawaii for this winter, because I’ve never been anywhere tropical, but we’e realizing this is not in the cards for us this year. So, I decided to create a little mini vacation for us via food. The first recipe on this culinary tour is a low carb vegan basic poke that can be eaten alone as a side salad, or within a poke bowl.

Ahoy, friends! Spring is in full blast here in New England, and since I’ve been hanging around my house a lot lately (as I imagine most of you have as well), I’ve been doing a lot of springtime cooking and baking. If you’ve been reading…

Vegan Keto Red Velvet Waffles (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Red Velvet Waffles (gluten-free, coconut-free, soy-free)

We’re on the eve of Valentine’s Day and I was craving something sweet that I could also use as an excuse to bust out my heart-shaped silicon mold to use for heart-shaped pats of buttery spread. So, I channeled my inner Leslie Knope and decided…

Vegan Keto Buttery Noodles & Cabbage (gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Buttery Noodles & Cabbage (gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free)

If you follow me on instagram at all, you probably know that I LOVE cabbage. I eat it almost every day in some form or another, but I usually end up just sauteing it or making my favorite crack slaw. Sometimes, though, I want something that feels a little more substantive, something noodle-y. A dish I really liked back when I ate real pasta was a really simple dish made by sauteing cabbage and noodles in butter. This is my gluten-free, vegan, paleo and keto take on that very meal.

Low Carb Vegan Kołaczki (gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free)

Oh, look, I’m finally posting Christmas things just a few days before Christmas. I’m the worst. Because my dad’s family is Polish, I grew up eating a lot of Polish foods, especially at Christmas time. These cookies are  a staple from my childhood. They’re called…

Vegan Keto Zucchini Noatmeal Breakfast Bars (gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, low-FODMAP, paleo)

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…

My Favorite Vegan Keto Crunchy Snacks

My Favorite Vegan Keto Crunchy Snacks

One of the hardest things for me to replace on a vegan keto diet was crunchy snacks. I used to be a huge junk food eater, and pretty much inhaled anything crunchy, whether it was sweet or salty. Since going keto all those years ago, I’ve found quite a few different snack options to munch on when a craving strikes, and since you guys are always asking me what my favorite crunchy snacks are, I thought I’d post them here!

Low Carb Vegan Peanut Ginger Cold Noodle Salad (gluten-free, grain-free, keto-friendly)

It’s getting hotter out where I live, and some days, having to turn on the stove just doesn’t seem like a good idea. So, I’ve been making a lot of meals lately that require zero cooking. I really, really like peanut butter and peanut butter-adjacent…
