My Favorite Vegan Keto Protein Bars in 2021

My Favorite Vegan Keto Protein Bars in 2021

Firstly, wow. We made it. It’s 2021 and we’re in the middle of Resolution season. Like many of you, I always ramp up my fitness routine pretty aggressively in January, and with increased workouts comes an increased need for protein. Can you eat sufficient protein…

Vegan Keto Spinach Curry Soup

Vegan Keto Spinach Curry Soup

Finally, fall is beginning to show signs of arriving, and I’ve decided that it is the official start of soup season. So, I’m kicking things off with this vegan keto spinach curry soup. If August is a little too warm for you to start making…

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.

Vegan Keto Blueberry Doughnuts (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, sweetener-free)

Hi, friends! Happy Friday (or whatever day you happen to be reading this on). Summer is in full swing, and I’ve really been craving blueberries lately. When I was younger, one of my favorite weekend treats was the blueberry cake doughnut from Honey Dew Doughnuts,…

Vegan Keto Carrot Cake Waffles (gluten-free, grain-free, coconut-free, soy-free, nut-free)

Vegan Keto Carrot Cake Waffles (gluten-free, grain-free, coconut-free, soy-free, nut-free)

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…

Flax-Free Vegan Keto Bagels (gluten-free-, soy-free, nut-free, coconut-free)

Flax-Free Vegan Keto Bagels (gluten-free-, soy-free, nut-free, coconut-free)

If there’s one thing I can guarantee when I post a recipe, it’s that people will ask about substitutions. I totally understand, as someone with a fair amount of restrictions, but no matter how many different substitutions I try to include in the notes, someone always wants something else. Years ago, I posted a recipe for vegan keto bagels that became immensely popular and the most common question I get from people is “can I substitute anything for the flax?” So, I’ve finally gotten around to this, and am excited to present my flax-free vegan keto bagels.

Low Carb Vegan Peanut Butter Red Curry Soup (gluten-free, instant pot recipe)

Low Carb Vegan Peanut Butter Red Curry Soup (gluten-free, instant pot recipe)

Even though this February is one of the warmest on record here in MA, it’s still chilly enough to warrant making a new batch of soup every week (at least!). The one I’ve been making non-stop this month is a peanut butter soup that relies…

Vegan Keto Braised Sauerkraut & “Sausage” (gluten-free, low carb, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Braised Sauerkraut & “Sausage” (gluten-free, low carb, soy-free)

Cold weather for me means lots of slow cooker recipes that are rich and filling and don’t require too much chewing. Why that last bit? I have no idea, but there’s something about softer foods that just feels more wintery to me. I just want…

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.

Vegan Keto Peppermint Bark Fat Bombs (nut-free, soy-free, paleo, low-lectin, low-FODMAP)

Vegan Keto Peppermint Bark Fat Bombs (nut-free, soy-free, paleo, low-lectin, low-FODMAP)

I really like mint and chocolate, and one of my favorite wintery treats used to be that peppermint bark that was basically a layer of mint-flavored dark chocolate, covered by a layer of white chocolate and then topped with crushed peppermint candies. Since absolutely no…
