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 […]

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 […]

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 completely aware that finding a sugar-free, dairy-free caramel that actually tastes good is probably not going to happen and that I would have to make my own if I wanted to make any keto caramel treats. So, after some internet recipe research and six actual attempts with different amounts of ingredients, this keto coconut dulce de leche was born.

This is happening – A Vegan Keto Cookbook!

This is happening – A Vegan Keto Cookbook!

Guys, I’m shaking as I type this because I’m so excited. You guys are always asking me if I have a print cookbook out, which is so lovely, but I’ve had to say “no” thus far every time. Well, no longer!

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 […]

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 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 […]

Low Carb Gluten Free Vegan Corned Tempeh & Cabbage

Low Carb Gluten Free Vegan Corned Tempeh & Cabbage

Growing up near Boston with an Irish Catholic mother meant that every St. Patrick’s Day, we ate corned beef and cabbage. Yes, I know this isn’t a traditional Irish dish, but it’s certainly become an Irish-American classic, and it’s what many of us here stateside […]

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 exist. This obsession is of my own volition and is being fueled by the fact that sugaring season is upon us here in New England, and all I can think about is maple. Yeah, this isn’t going to be the last maple-flavored recipe. Sorry to those of you who aren’t super into it. Anyway, I was thinking this morning that what would really hit the spot is a nice piece of vegan keto smoked maple tempeh, and now that I have the maple syrup that is more than within reach. (more…)

Basic Vegan Fat Bob-omb

Basic Vegan Fat Bob-omb

One of the pillars of many a ketogenic diet is fat bombs, and plant-based keto is no exception. There are going to be days where you look at your macros and realize that you’ve only got 1g of carbs left, but still somehow need 200 […]
