With the growing popularity of vegan keto and other low carb vegetarian ways of eating, there seem to be new and different styles popping up everywhere. One way of eating that I’ve been getting a lot of questions about lately is eco-keto and eco-Atkins diets. […]
When you think of the foods you can eat on keto, beans likely don’t come to mind. In fact, many keto blogs recommend avoiding legumes entirely. This is not one of those blogs. I went vegetarian almost two decades ago, and went vegan back around […]
