Let’s be real – the hardest meal of the day to put together is breakfast. Not only have you likely not had coffee yet, but you’ve also got some time constraints. I’m not a big fan of complex breakfasts most days, and I know a […]

Every time I see someone post their amazing “elevated toast” on Instagram, I get pretty jealous. While I certainly love how I feel when eating low carb, I also really do miss eating bread products – I am only human after all. So, in order […]
Clearly, there’s something seriously wrong with me, because it’s 10 degrees (Fahrenheit!) outside right now, and yet here I am, making ice cream. But this isn’t just any ice cream – it’s a low carb vegan ice cream! Most recipes I see for vegan ice cream involve a banana, and a lot of suspended disbelief. I think there’s a time and a place for that sort of thing, but it’s not here. So, when an ice cream craving hit, I did a little experimenting, and came up with this recipe! (more…)
I don’t know why, but I’ve really be craving cashew yogurt. I bought some to try a while back at Whole Foods that was absolutely delicious, but it was pretty pricey, and super sugary. So, I decided to do some experimenting to create a low carb vegan yogurt that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Now, there is an initial investment here with buying the glucomannan powder (which has an incredible array of health and weight loss benefits), but one bottle of this stuff can make between 36-57 batches of cashew yogurt (depending on the consistency you like). So, this whole recipe costs $2.50 per batch and $0.42 per serving, as opposed to buying the store brand at $1.99 per serving. Plus, this homemade version is low carb, sugar free and super easy to make!
Well, guys, I made more pies. This time around, I decided to fill the standard pie crust with a low carb peanut butter pumpkin filling that more or less, rocked my socks off. Why peanut butter and pumpkin? Because it’s an amazing flavor combination! I thought about adding a layer of chocolate underneath the filling…and this will probably happen next time I’m feeling adventurous. These mini low carb peanut butter pumpkin pies are certainly going to be on my Thanksgiving menu.
I’m sure you’re wondering how I plan on having a million and fifty pies at this mythic low carb Thanksgiving I’ve built up in my head… Well, I’m going to make one batch of low carb pie dough, and then split it evenly between apple and pumpkin pies. Boom. Problem solved. Or, I’ll make two batches of dough and then make even more ridiculous treats. I’m not worried either way – I’m not working the Wednesday before, so I’ll have plenty of time for baking!
Regular keto Thanksgiving recipes are actually really easy to find (I mean – Turkey…), but what can you eat for vegan keto Thanksgiving? What low carb options are there for those of us who just want to eat some traditional flavors, without animal products? Well, […]
