How I Try To “Fix” My Endometriosis Symptoms

How I Try To “Fix” My Endometriosis Symptoms

Oh hey, friends. If you didn’t know, I have endometriosis (among other things) and it’s a real pain every month. Over the years I’ve tried pretty much everything I’ve come across to help alleviate some of the symptoms, to varying degrees of success. Every once […]

Can you drink kombucha on a vegan keto diet?

Can you drink kombucha on a vegan keto diet?

Hi, friends! Long time no podcast, eh? Well, I’m back from my cookbook-induced hiatus, and am excited to start recording podcasts again! I’ve decided to get back into the swing of things slowly with a shorter podcast as part of a new “Friday FAQ” series, […]

Happy Spring: Updates and Current Projects

Hi, guys! This post is going to deviate a bit from the typical format, because I want to give an update on what projects I’m currently working on. Because I’m a one-woman show and do everything involved with running MeatFreeKeto.com (and this site), from website maintenance to customer service to social media and actually creating recipes/writing posts/taking photos (plus, making more meal plans and recipe books on occasion), it can sometimes take a while for a project to come into fruition. So, I thought it might be nice to let you all in on what’s been going on behind the scenes.

Meat Free Keto Videos?

A few of you have been asking if I could start making recipe and “what I eat in a day” videos. This is something that’s been on my radar for a while, but will probably be a summer project. I’ve never made videos, so it’ll take a bit of time and practice to actually put something together! I promise this is something I’m working on, though!

Healthy Gamer Girl Podcast

I haven’t given up on this! I’ve been working on a new format – interviewing fellow vegan ketoers or vegan gamers just to get a glimpse of their daily lives and healthy eating/living routines. :)

Vegan Keto Meal Plans

It’s been six months since I’ve introduced a new meal plan, but I promise there are some new ones on the way! I listened to your requests and have a few coming up down the pipeline with totally new recipes and for some different dietary needs. So, look forward to some more meal plan variety in the near future!

It takes a while to make a meal plan, because not only do I have to come up with the recipes from scratch (I want to give value by having totally different recipes than what are in the other plans/my book/the site), but then I have to put them together in a way that meets macro and micronutrient needs, while also being reasonable and not overly expensive. Then, there’s testing the plan to make sure it’s actually do-able in a real-world setting (thank you, testers!) and then finally, I format everything and publish it.

Vegan Keto Recipe Books

I don’t have another print book in the works yet (it’s been less than six months!), but I do have an ebook I’ve been working on with a bunch of new recipes. I’m really excited about it and can’t wait to share it with everyone! These recipes are separate from the ones going into the meal plans. So, even more recipes to choose from!

Blog Posts & Recipes

As usual, I’m working on new recipes with the goal to post at least one per week. I’m also going through old recipes and re-taking some pictures (there are some doozies) while also clarifying instructions and adding weights to the ingredients lists. So, it’s been busy, and I’ve been eating a lot…

Yoga & Books

Silly, but I made some New Year’s resolutions and have actually been keeping up with them. One was to do yoga every day, even if it’s just a short, restorative practice and another was to read at least one book a week (on average). Both were in response to my life last year, where I basically didn’t read anything and didn’t really work out the entire time I was writing my book. Whoops. So, I’m kind of excited that I’ve gotten back to these activities, because I really enjoy them!

What is an eco-ketogenic diet? Eco keto and Atkins explained!

What is an eco-ketogenic diet? Eco keto and Atkins explained!

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. […]

Can You Eat Beans on a Vegan Keto Diet?

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 […]

Vegan Keto Frequently Asked Questions

In the past 6+ years that I’ve been blogging about vegan keto, I’ve gotten a lot of questions. For the better part of five years, I’ve mostly been asked, “is a vegan ketogenic diet possible?” But now, as more and more of you are diving into a plant-based low-carb way of eating, the questions have become a bit more diverse.

I’ve been answering these questions individually on social media and by email for a while now, and it occurred to me that having them all in one place would probably be helpful to you guys (and to me, as well!). So, here we go – my vegan keto FAQ. (more…)

Am I Always In Ketosis?

Over the years, I’ve gotten loads of questions about veganism or plant-based eating and keto, and I thought I’d start writing responses down here instead of typing out the same long answer each time. :) One question that pops up a lot is “are you […]

Staying Vegan Keto While Traveling

When I work with clients, the question that always seems to arise is, “but how do I stick to a vegan keto diet while traveling?” It can become easy to maintain the same routine in the bubble of your home when you’re able to go grocery […]

Why Do People Gain All the Weight Back After Stopping Keto?

Recently, I received a really good question via a blog comment that I thought deserved its own post. A reader commented that she was interested in starting a vegan keto diet, but had noticed that everyone who she knew who had done keto had actually gained back all the weight they lost. Some had even gained back more! She was understandably concerned and wanted to know if there was a reason why people gain back all the weight they’ve lost when they stop a ketogenic diet, and how to prevent this. I think it’s a great topic to dive into, so here we go!

Episode 33: Sugarless Crystals – Keto For Health

Hey everyone! It’s been a hot minute since we’ve posted a new podcast, but I’m finally getting it together with a new series of interviews with other ketoers. I’ve always been fascinated with the many ways we can all do keto and wanted to explore […]
