Is a soy-free low carb or keto vegan diet possible? In today’s episode, we explore that question, and take a look at some vegan protein sources that aren’t soy!
I recently received a question asking how it’s possible to get enough calcium on a vegan keto diet (or even a low carb vegan diet), without resorting to fortified foods or supplements. As a fan of whole foods nutrition, I totally appreciate the desire to […]

I’ve spoken before (on this podcast) about drinking on a diet, specifically on how to min-max your alcoholic beverage (and drunk eating) choices to keep you on track, and stave off any extra weight gain. However, this advice wasn’t reeeally keto-specific, and so the questions […]
