What I Eat in a Day: Vegan Keto Carb Refeed

What I Eat in a Day: Vegan Keto Carb Refeed

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately asking if it’s possible to do a vegan keto diet as an athlete and how to adapt your diet accordingly for the increased exercise. So, I thought I’d share how I eat on days when I’m extra […]

Low Carb Vegan Mustard Dill Zucchini Cakes (gluten-free, coconut-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Low Carb Vegan Mustard Dill Zucchini Cakes (gluten-free, coconut-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of zucchini in my farm share (side note – I highly recommend a farm share if there’s a program available near you… you get so many vegetables for so much less expensive than you pay in store). So, I’ve […]

Vegan Keto Chocolate Waffles (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto Chocolate Waffles (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Well, not breakfast per se, but breakfast foods for sure. Pancakes and waffles are basically my go-to treats on any given occasion. Because I’m basically just constantly thinking about breakfast foods, I really wanted to eat chocolate waffles this weekend. Now, I’ve never seen gluten-free vegan chocolate waffles in stores, never mind a vegan keto waffle, so I grabbed the kitchen scale and got to work. (more…)

Vegan Keto Cookie Caramel Cookie Bars (gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free)

Vegan Keto Cookie Caramel Cookie Bars (gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, egg-free)

A while ago when I made my coconut dulce de leche, I did so not only with nice cream in mind, but also with the idea of using it for things like keto candy bars and keto cookies. This recipe is kind of a hybrid […]

Vegan Keto Carbonara (gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free)

Vegan Keto Carbonara (gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free)

Every once in a while you just want something comforting and warm to eat on a cold day. Even though it’s mid-may, it’s cloudy and chilly and rainy today and I just wanted something rich and delicious. I watch a lot of recipe videos on […]

Vegan Keto Snacks: Crispy Lupini Beans

Vegan Keto Snacks: Crispy Lupini Beans

I’ve been eating a low carb plant-based diet for six years now, and while I’m pretty over sugary cravings on a day-to-day basis, the one thing I continually find myself wanting is some form of chip. Yes, there are flax crackers and other “crispy” vegan keto snacks, but they don’t really hit the spot in the same way. What did always satisfy that craving for something sweet was crispy chickpeas and fava beans. They’re pretty prevalent in grocery stores now, so you’ve likely seen them – those little bags of crunchy flavored beans that are salty and delicious and really satisfy that need for something like a chip. Of course, chickpeas and fava beans are a little higher in carbs than I would like, so they don’t really make a great vegan keto snack. (more…)

Vegan Keto Peanut Butter Doughnuts (gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free)

Vegan Keto Peanut Butter Doughnuts (gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free)

Doughnuts are one of those foods that are almost impossible to find in a gluten-free vegan variety. I’ve actually never found a commercial gluten-free vegan doughnut, but I’m saying “almost impossible” to be optimistic. Adding “low-carb” or “keto” to the list of doughnut qualifiers makes […]

Keto Fermented Foods: Vegan Keto Yogurt Recipe

Keto Fermented Foods: Vegan Keto Yogurt Recipe

Recently, I posted a few pictures of a homemade vegan keto yogurt to my Instagram account, and you guys seemed intrigued! I got a few comments, emails and DMs asking for a recipe, so I thought I should type one up, so I could explain […]

Low Carb Vegan Rice and Beans

Low Carb Vegan Rice and Beans

Rice and beans is one of those staple foods that vegans tend to make over and over. I used to basically make one giant slow-cooker batch of beans and rice every week, and then just add a cup to every meal. With that in mind, I set out to create something similar that I could make a large batch of at the beginning of the week, and just eat throughout. Recently, I was thinking that I really missed having my old standby, and set out to find a way to make a low carb vegan keto rice and beans recipe.  (more…)

Low Carb Vegan Smokey Maple Tempeh

Low Carb Vegan Smokey Maple Tempeh

Remember the other day when I was obsessing over the sugar-free maple-flavored syrup I found? Well, I’m still completely enamored. Right off the bat, I feel like I should say that not only are they not sponsoring me, but I doubt they even know I […]
