Sauteed Kale & Butternut Squash with Toasted Pecans (vegan, keto-friendy, gluten-free)

Sauteed Kale & Butternut Squash with Toasted Pecans (vegan, keto-friendy, gluten-free)

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 […]

Vegan Keto Summer Balance Bowl

Vegan Keto Summer Balance Bowl

This is the first year I’ve really had a successful garden, and so I’ve been able to have fresh veggies all summer long. Even though my garden is really just a few containers and some scattered pots, this small amount of plants has actually produced […]

Vegan Keto Tempeh Satay With Peanut Sauce

Vegan Keto Tempeh Satay With Peanut Sauce

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.

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

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 […]

Vegan Keto Cereal Review: Catalina Crunch

Vegan Keto Cereal Review: Catalina Crunch

Hi, friends! As I recently shared on Instagram, I’ve been having some serious cereal cravings. Usually when this happens, I just make myself some vegan keto chocolate granola (from my cookbook!), this cinnamon granola, or some homemade granola bars… but every once in a while, […]

Low Carb Vegan Comfort Food: Tomato & Tofu Stir Fry (番茄豆腐)

Low Carb Vegan Comfort Food: Tomato & Tofu Stir Fry (番茄豆腐)

Even though summer is right around the corner here in New England, it’s actually been a little chilly here and there. Not actually cold, but just nice enough that I can get away with cuddling under a blanket with a nice big bowl of vegan keto comfort food. In the past week or so, I’ve made this recipe quite a few times, as it’s so easy to throw together and so filling. It’s also really nutritous and just hits the spot. While I realize it may not be what comes to mind immediately when you think of comfort food, this low carb vegan tomato and tofu stir fry really hits the spot. (more…)

Vegan Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Vegan Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

If you follow me on instagram and see the stories I post, you’ll notice I eat a lot of nut/seed butters. As a snack. From the jar. I’ve spent a long time browsing the internet looking for a delicious, vegan “notella” to keto-ify. But, every […]

Super Easy Low Carb Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust (nut-free, soy-free, coconut-free)

Super Easy Low Carb Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust (nut-free, soy-free, coconut-free)

Like most North American humans, I enjoy eating pizza. A lot. It’s definitely up there in the top five for favorite foods. Of course, trying to come up with a vegan keto pizza crust has been a bit of a challenge over the years. I’ve […]

Easy Keto Nut Butter

Easy Keto Nut Butter

I’m always looking for vegan, keto-friendly snacks to enjoy from the comfort of my couch while watching TV. I also really like to drizzle nut butters on top of nice cream and over berries with coconut cream (so, so good). So, after realizing that buying my own keto-friendly nut butters forever was going to add up over time, I decided to try and make my own version. It’s not a perfect match, but it definitely comes close. The macros of the commercial version are a bit better, and the taste is a bit richer, but this isn’t too bad for a bit of a budget version!

Low Carb Vegan Mushroom Burgers (gluten-free, soy-free, high-protein)

Low Carb Vegan Mushroom Burgers (gluten-free, soy-free, high-protein)

Low carb vegan mushroom burgers are something that’s been on my “to do” list for a long while. I really like the flavor and texture of a nice, grain-based mushroom burger, but not so much the carbs and their effects. So, I figured it was […]
