Keto Coconut Dulce de Leche (sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan)

Keto Coconut Dulce de Leche (sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan)

So “keto dulce de leche” might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re looking for a tasty recipe to make, but for some reason I had a pretty serious hankering for some low carb caramel-type treat the other day. I was […]

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 “Mozzarella” Sticks (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

Vegan Keto “Mozzarella” Sticks (gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free)

A while ago, I saw vegan mozzarella sticks on a menu and got super excited. Back in my dairy days, I would have eaten mozzarella sticks as an actual meal, either at a restaurant or at home. Fried mozzarella sticks are a food that I actually really miss – especially as a vegan mozzarella stick isn’t exactly common in grocery stores. A low carb or keto vegan mozzarella stick is even less common, given that breading on these bad boys tends to be, well, flour. So, after learning at this restaurant that the vegan mozzarella sticks were neither low-carb nor gluten-free, I set out to make my own vegan keto mozzarella sticks recipe.

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 […]

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, […]

Vegan Keto Maple Granola Bars (nut-free, gluten-free, high-protein)

Vegan Keto Maple Granola Bars (nut-free, gluten-free, high-protein)

This year I’ve finally managed to kick my dependence on store-bought protein bars. It’s not that I have anything against them, so much as I found myself really relying on them and eating 1-2 per day. This adds up fast. One of my new year’s resolutions was to eliminate protein bars from my grocery shops altogether and figure out a way to make some tasty ones at home. These vegan keto maple granola bars are one example of the ways I’ve been getting some extra protein into my day, without breaking the bank. (more…)

Vegan Keto Maple Cinnamon Noatmeal (high protein, nut free, soy free)

Vegan Keto Maple Cinnamon Noatmeal (high protein, nut free, soy free)

My whole life, I’ve lived in either New England or Quebec, two places known for their maple syrup (and hockey rivalry). While I don’t really miss sugary breakfasts all that much, one thing I really do crave from time to time is a nice warm […]

No-Bake Vegan Keto Fudgey Brownie Bites (nut free, gluten free, soy free)

No-Bake Vegan Keto Fudgey Brownie Bites (nut free, gluten free, soy free)

There’s something about the weekend that makes me want to bake things. And then there’s something about the thought of waiting for the finished product that makes me want to not bake things. It’s not that I’m impatient, it’s that sometimes I’m hungry now, and […]

Vegan Mojito Fat Bombs (nut free, soy free, paleo)

Vegan Mojito Fat Bombs (nut free, soy free, paleo)

It’s been a while since I’ve really made any new fat bombs. Usually, I’m content with the same old thing (usually the Magic Mushroom ones – no, not that kind of mushroom…). But recently, I’ve been exploring some different flavor combinations. I saw a mojito smoothie recipe the other day (chock full of sugar – it looked so good, though), and took that as inspiration for these vegan mojito fat bombs. (more…)

Low Carb Vegan Nachos Con Queso

Low Carb Vegan Nachos Con Queso

I’ve been kicking around the idea of making some vegan keto nachos for a while, but for some reason kept putting it off. Well, I finally got myself in gear this afternoon and made myself some nachos. I’ve really been wanting nachos for a while, […]
