Easy Vegan Keto Recipes

HAPPY SUPERBOWL SUNDAY EVERYONE! GO PATRIOTS! Here is another “lazy” or easy kinda of post. If you have been with me for a while now I did a series called the best/worst of something. I’ve been working to put all the best and worst posts into its own separate post so you can reference when you need it. Before the new year, I wanted to start a new series. I didn’t know what to call It in the beginning and I called it lazy keto vs. strict keto. I didn’t like the word lazy because that Implies that I am calling you lazy and I AM NOT calling anyone lazy. So I changed the name to “easy”  which is still not the final name. 

The Idea behind this series is that I give you the easy way out but still with max benefits. Let’s be honest there is really no “easy” way out but I’m giving you quick meal recipes, quick exercises that take less than 30 minutes a day and I give you exercises that you can do throughout the day that you might be doing already but didn’t know.

If you have any ideas that you want to see in this series you can comment on this post or you can reach me at any of the links plus my email that Is all linked at the bottom of every post.


From restaurant menus to new products on store shelves, ketogenic foods are all the rage right now. The keto diet focuses on high-fat, low-carb foods that are low in sugar with a moderate amount of protein. And if you’re interested in giving this diet a try, you may be wondering what plant-based foods are keto-friendly and if it’s possible to be vegan on a keto diet.

While there are certainly vegan items that should be avoided or limited—like starchy root vegetables, beans, and berries—there are tons of healthful, satisfying vegan foods, from leafy greens and cauliflower to almond butter and tofu, that you can eat when trying a keto diet!

We’ve scoured the web and some of our favorite food bloggers to find you the very best keto-friendly vegan recipes. 


Crispy Tofu & Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry

Opt for almond butter! Recipe here.


Seitan Negimaki

Tofu in Purgatory

This vegan take on shakshuka is sure to impress.

Green Curry Kale & Crispy Coconut Tempeh

 Cauliflower Fried Rice

YUM!! Recipe here.


 8-Ingredient Zucchini Lasagna

This recipe is the perfect low-carb dinner!


Remember, plant-based diets are clinically proven to be one of the best ways to lose weight and safeguard against obesity. While the keto diet may be fine to try for a short period of time, it’s not recommended long term.

Additionally, scientific evidence that a nutritious plant-based diet is beneficial for your health continues to mount; countless studies show that vegans have lower rates of heart disease and diabetes and may even live longer!

Vegan Comfort Food

As you can tell by the title today I bring you a vegan comfort foodstyle post. I made some of these recipes and let me tell you they are delicious. I do have to be honest that I can’t say that the pickiest eater will enjoy these recipes because that is not always the case. What I can tell you is that you can alter these recipes pretty much for your dietary needs. You need gluten- free you can make it gluten-free. For all of my, Keto peeps sadly these recipes are not for you. If you want me to do a keto/vegan? keto/vegetarian style recipe post let me know and I will be more than happy to do it.

Also, you would want to stay tuned because I have a lot of exciting things coming in the coming weeks. Don’t forget that all of my links are posted in the “Where You Can Follow Me” section towards the end of the post.


Comfort-food staples like waffles and chicken pot pie probably don’t hold much of a spot in your weight-loss plan. Enter: Vegan cooking.

By slashing the calories and cholesterol of meat and dairy, you can make rich, savory, comforting classics that’ll slim you down. Whether you’re a meat lover, hardcore vegan, or just looking for #MeatlessMonday inspiration, these simple plant-based recipes show how you can healthify mac and cheese, burgers, pancakes and more.

ORANGE SWEET POTATO WHOLE GRAIN PANCAKES

There’s no shame in devouring a stack of these pancakes made with whole-wheat flour, sweet potatoes, applesauce, orange juice, and other wholesome ingredients. Top them with fat-fighting fruit for a breakfast worth waking up for.

Per serving (2 pancakes): 249 calories, 2.5 g fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 388 mg sodium, 50.6 g carbs, 3.6 g fiber, 7.7. g sugars, 6.4 g protein

Get the recipe here on Holy Cow!

3-INGREDIENT POTATO-LESS MASHED POTATOES

Creamy, buttery mashed potatoes may be a “yes, please” for your mouth, but a “heck no” for your waistline. But you can get a fix by using zucchini and olive oil in place of spuds and butter. (Yes, really.) Zukes blend to a velvety texture and they’re loaded with vitamins, minerals, and freshness.

Per serving: 511 calories, 56.4 g fat, 8.1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 20 mg sodium, 6.6 g carbs, 2.2 g fiber, 3.4 g sugars, 2.4 g protein

Get the recipe here on Vegan When Sober.

EASY MACARONI AND “CHEEZE”

What’s more comforting than a heaping helping of mac ‘n’ cheese? Not much — until the guilt sets in. In this slimming alternative, swap dairy cheese for “cheezy” nutritional yeast, creamy tahini and spices. (If you choose a “nooch (nutritional) yeast” that is fortified with B12, you’ll also get 100% of your RDA for the essential vitamin.) Low-fat and low-sodium, the resulting dish will be your new classic.

Per serving: 254 calories, 4.3 g fat, 0.6 g saturated fat, 41 mg cholesterol, 321 mg sodium, 42.1 g carbs, 4.3 g fiber, 14.1 g protein

Get the recipe here from Fat Free Vegan Kitchen.

COCONUT YOGURT CHERRY PARFAIT WITH PUMPKIN SEEDS

Sometimes only an ice-cream sundae will suffice. Until you try this yogurt parfait with cherries, granola, crunchy pumpkin seeds and a hint of cinnamon, that is. It works for breakfast just as well as dessert. Quercetin-rich cherries (which fight inflammation) complement chewy unsweetened coconut flakes perfectly. You can also add trendy chia seeds for a fiber boost.

Per serving: 335 calories, 18 g fat, 5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 15 mg sodium, 41 g carbs, 5 g fiber, 15 g sugars, 7 g protein

Get the recipe here from The Healthy Apple.

VEGAN POT PIE

Who would’ve thought that a comfort food staple that relies on meat and dairy can be transformed into a vegan winner? Here, sweet potatoes and tofu (along with the traditional trio of onion, carrots and green peas) snuggle in a flaky, golden-brown crust. You won’t miss the meat and cream (or the attendant calories). For extra flavor, sprinkle in dried herbs like tarragon, oregano, and rosemary.

Per serving: 359 calories, 15 g fat, 5 g saturated fat, 0 g cholesterol, 200 mg sodium, 43 g carbs, 4 g sugars, 11 g protein

Get the recipe here from Holy Cow!.

WHITE BEAN-DILL SPREAD

Some things in life just go together. Peanut butter and jelly. Fall and football. Ranch dip and just about anything. Unfortunately, it’s often loaded with sodium, calories and fat. This healthy alternative made from just a handful of ingredients. Cannellini beans (which are ideal in meals for weight loss) mingle with olive oil, lemon juice, fresh dill, and black pepper. It pairs wonderfully with veggies and crackers, and even as a topping for toast.

Per serving: 160 calories, 7 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 409 mg sodium, 21 g carbs, 7 g fiber, 8 g protein

Get the recipe here on The Healthy Apple.

CACAO CORNBREAD

Healthy chocolate cornbread? S-O-L-D. This gluten-free vegan stunner includes raw cacao nibs, which packs magnesium, iron, and antioxidants. Chili powder and cinnamon provide a spicy kick—along with a metabolism boost.

Per serving: 312 calories, 13 g fat, 6 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 439 mg sodium, 43 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 9 g sugars, 7 g protein

Get the recipe here from The Healthy Apple.

CHICKPEA BURGERS WITH TAHINI SAUCE

You’re likely to abandon carnivore tendencies after your sinking your teeth into this hearty chickpea burger spiked with coriander, cumin, and cayenne, and dressed in rich tahini with cucumbers. The flavors in this dish are so bold, you won’t even miss that this falafel-inspired sandwhich isn’t deep fried.

Per serving: 281 calories, 6 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 268 mg sodium, 45 g carbs, 11 g fiber, 7 g sugars, 13 g protein

Get the recipe at Fat Free Vegan.

 

HEALTHY CHIA WAFFLES

The brunch staple gets a healthy vegan makeover with whole wheat flour, chia seeds, and almond milk, in what is bound to become your weekend regular. There’s also an added nutrient boost from flaxseed meal, which is rich in heart-protective, fat-burning omega-3 fatty acids.

Per serving: 283 calories, 18 g fat, 13 saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 165 mg sodium, 28 g carbs, 6 g fiber, 2 g sugars, 7 g protein

Get the recipe here on Holy Cow!

 

QUINOA PASTA WITH FRESH TOMATOES, GARLIC, AND BASIL

Spaghetti and meatballs. Fettucine alfredo. Bolognese. Pasta, we can’t count the ways in which we love you. Turns out, you can eat your pasta and keep it plant-based too. There are countless stellar vegan pasta recipes, but we love this garden-fresh version with quinoa linguini. No basil? Wilted spinach works great as well.

Per serving: 170 calories, 6 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 361 mg sodium, 28 g carbs, 3 g fiber, 4 g protein

Amazing Holiday Desserts

I decided that I would start blogmas early by giving you a holiday dessert blog. I make these all year round and you can always change Ingredients according to your dietary needs or to the season.

Twas the night before Christmas when it dawned on you that you forgot to get Great Aunt Maggie a gift. And whoops! Looks like you forgot about old Saint Nick, too.

With less than 12 hours to pull something together, this may seem like the definition of like holiday hell, but don’t panic—just head to the kitchen and create the most epic dessert of all time! Toss your creation in a tin with a bow and no one will ever be the wiser. To help you turn trauma into triumph, we’ve scoured the web for the most festive last-minute recipes. All of them are made with things you’re apt to already have in the house and they all require less than 20 minutes of prep time (many take just 5!). As an added bonus, i’ve also selected recipes that are kid-friendly in case you need an extra elf in the kitchen to help you churn out cookies and treats.

Peppermint Bark Popcorn

Holy Pumpkin Spice! Are Pumpkin Spice Lattes Really bad For You?

It’s that time of the year again. Starbucks just released (Aug 25th) their pumpkin spice lattes for the fall season. I’m all for most things pumpkin but when it’s 100 degrees out it’s hard for me to drink liquid pumpkin crack. Today I am going to be talking about as you guess from the title I will be talking about Pumpkin Spice Lattes or PSL to some.

Ebook Survey Link: In yesterday’s post, I gave a link to a survey. That survey is about an Ebook that I am currently working on and in that survey, I ask what you would like to see from me in the Ebook and I ask if you wanted to be apart of the process for the Ebook. The Ebook Is obviously going to be health, fitness, and nutrition related. If you would be so kind and take less than 30 seconds to fill out the survey so I know exactly how to proceed with the Ebook I would be forever grateful you can Click Here to fill it out… Thank You!

 

 

starbucks pumpkin spice latte

 

Seasonal drinks can contain a lot of calories and sugar, but some tricks can help you enjoy the same flavors in a healthier way. Coffee drinkers who want to avoid gaining weight this fall would be wise to avoid pumpkin spice lattes, or at least to indulge only on occasion or modify the concoctions, according to dietitians.

Now that it’s almost September, the seasonal dessertlike drink has already returned to Starbucks as well as Dunkin’ Donuts, McDonald’s, and independent coffee shops. Of course, pumpkin by itself is VERY HEALTHY and serves a lot of nutrition health benefits and with cinnamon, you are good to go nutmeg is fine. But when you are taking something that is healthy and turn it into a PSL you are asking for bloating, constipation, and all the sugar you are supposed to consume in a week you’re drinking in one PSL. Just because the PSL is made with now with real pumpkin doesn’t mean it’s healthy. And let us think about this. ” If the PSL’s are now made with real pumpkin what was it made with before?”

Fact: A Grande (16 oz) PSL that is made with 2% milk and whipped cream already has 380 calories and it contains 50 grams of sugar! Like I said earlier you are drinking a week’s worth of sugar in one grande PSL. Women should consume no more than 25 grams or (100 calories) of sugar per day and men should consume no more than 37 grams or (150 calories) per day. 


Empty Calories

A drink filled with sugar isn’t going to fill you up as long or if at all like eating a healthy breakfast that is full of good for you nutrients. I understand that some people don’t register the calories that you may be drinking. There is no benefit you can get out of sugar in your diet. If you feel good, it’s only temporary. Once it goes away, you’re kind of looking for more. It’s a vicious cycle.” 

That said, there are ways to enjoy pumpkin spice lattes. If you have ONE every season, it’s not going to kill you. It starts to become problematic when you have one every morning on your way to work. That goes for everyone. If they have diabetes and they’re dying to drink it, one Is fine for the week maybe two. There is no food you can’t have with diabetes unless you eat or drink junk!


Cut Out The Sugar But Keep The Flavor

You can have your PSL’s just cut out the sugar and keep the pumpkin flavoring. If you want to save money or you want to learn how to make your own healthier PSL you can Click Here And if you want some extra pumpkin flavor try making this homemade pumpkin creamer It’s Paleo, Gluten Free, and Vegan Click Here

Instead of consuming the sugary flavorings in the typical pumpkin spice latte, you can top coffee with pure whipped cream and spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice. Using almond milk or cashew milk is a good option that isn’t necessarily healthier but can bring down the calories, as can skim or nonfat milk and you could trade the calories for the whipped cream.

Another option is frothing milk and topping your coffee with it along with spices.I’ve made whipped cream with a little bit of canned pumpkin in it as well. If you want to try your hand at making your own homemade vegan whipped cream you can Click Here And if you are the kinda person that thinks bigger is better you can always get the smaller size and that will save you calories and some sugar.


Final Thoughts

With anything that is sweet and not healthy for you just remember moderation is key. Like always if you have any questions please don’t hesitate in reaching out and I will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

What you are looking for are chunks of avocado but not too chunky.

This hummus is anything but traditional. First, there aren’t any chickpeas in this recipe I know can you believe it and second, there is absolutely no oil either. This recipe is made with cannellini beans (white beans) and this recipe uses peanut butter in place of the oil. 

Ingredients: 1- 15 0z. can of cannellini beans (white beans)~ 1/4 cup of warm water~ 3 tbsp of reduced fat peanut butter (smooth not chunky)~2 tbsps of fresh lemon juice~ 1 tbsp of chopped garlic (you can always add more garlic if you like the garlic taste)~ 1 to 2 tbsps of cumin. 

Recipe: In a food processor combine 1 15-0z can of cannellini beans, 1/4 cup of warm water,3 tablespoons of reduced fat peanut butter, 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice 1 tbsp of chopped garlic and 1-2 tsp of cumin. You want to pulse until nice and smooth.

Desserts & Sugar Alternatives

Desserts can be hard to come by when you are following a low carb or keto lifestyle. Most desserts that “Claim” to be low carb taste like dried out gym socks and other ones have hidden carbs. If you are following a low carb lifestyle than most likely you are trying or avoid all together Sugar and Flour. You probably thought If you are avoiding sugar the dessert or baked goods might not taste good. The answer to that Is yes and no. It all depends what type of “sugar” alternative that company uses. There are many “sugar” alternatives out there that can make “almost” anything taste good. The one thing I found that works for my low carb baking Are Sugar-Free Syrups. I love to use them In place of sugar and even sugar alternatives. 

Replacing Traditional Flours

Flours aren’t part of a low-carb lifestyle. Coconut Flour Is okay to use and almond flour but what If you are allergic to almonds or coconuts and you want to bake something? You are probably thinking how to replace the flour. I remember back when I use to be Vegan that I used flaxseed meal A LOT! The best thing about flaxseed meal Is that If you ran out of flour or If you are low carb you can use flaxseed meal as a flour alternative. For example, in baked goods, coconut and almond flours, or almond or flaxseed meal, can be used in place of traditional all-purpose flour, and sugar-free or dark chocolate chips in place of milk chocolate (which contains more sugar). 

Why you should make your own homemade whip cream

Unfortunately, the store bought whip cream you are used to doesn’t jive with a low carb or keto lifestyle. If that doesn’t get you Into making your own homemade version of this frozen topping then maybe all the “other added” sugars and suspicious Ingredients that you can’t pronounce. There Is sugar-free cool whip. That does fit within a low carb or keto lifestyle the problem with It Is that It contains Hydrogenated oils and that Isn’t very healthy If you are trying to lose weight because of the cholesterol. Luckily there Is always a homemade version of your favorite treat you just have to look for the recipe and adjust It according to your dietary needs. You can make this “junk” free, easy and delicious homemade whip cream.

Here Is how to make this delicious homemade whip cream In about 10 minutes and 2 Ingredients!

Ingredients

1/2 cup of heavy cream (Ultra Pasteurized)

2-4 light drops of sugar-free pumpkin syrup (you can use any sugar-free syrup you like)

Here Is what I used. You want a high-fat content so the cream will turn Into whip cream the lower the fat content the lower chance It will work. I tried this recipe many times and this Is what has worked for me and hasn’t let me down.

                              Pictures Of What I Used

                                            Heavy Cream & Sugar-Free Syrup

Directions:

First Add your mixing bowl In the freezer about 15 minutes before you make this recipe.You can use a Hand mixer or a Hand whisk but the hand whisk will take longer.  I didn’t do that (I forgot) and It took a bit longer for the Heavy Cream to whip up. Start off on a low-speed setting. Add your sweetener of choice. Only add a drop or two of the sweetener so you don’t add too much. You can always add more sweetener you can’t take It away. As the cream thickens slowly Increase the speed. After about 4 minutes start checking If the cream starts having soft peeks, which Is what you are looking for. As you see the cream slowly starting to have soft peaks start lowering the speed. You DO NOT WANT TO OVERBEAT IT! When you over beat the cream will start to lose volume and break up like butter. Pay attention because you don’t want that to happen and It can happen VERY QUICKLY! If for some reason you forgot to adjust the sweetness you can do It at this point. And BOOM! There you have It homemade whip cream that won’t break your carb budget. 

1/2 cup of Heavy cream got me just little over 1 cup. So you can always double the recipe If you are looking to have a big batch on hand. When my whip was done I put It In the freezer like regular whip cream. If you opt for the fridge you can enjoy homemade whip cream for about 2 days. 

You can put It on pancakes Is what I did. You can eat It out of the bowl, use It for Ice Cream toppings or even frost a cake or cupcakes.

Picture of what mine looked like when It was done

20180430_131809As you can see from the picture It Is nice and fluffy. It’s sweet but not too sweet. Of course, If you are used to the frozen whip cream than this might be an adjustment for you. But If you are like me and you like to make homemade things as often as possible then I highly recommend this recipe. Another great thing about this recipe Is that you can make It Into homemade whipped frosting.

1 Week Keto Update

A little over a week ago 9 days ago I finished the Pruvit Keto Reboot. (Link to that post will be at the end of this post). In today’s post, I will give you a rundown on how I feel and If after 1 week am I still doing Keto and If I plan on doing Keto long Term or just until I reach my fitness and health goals. Since this will be a lengthy post I’m going to label each section for you. So If you are Interested In reading a certain section you can scroll down and find that section. Everything I mention If possible I will add links to recipes that I mention some have links some don’t. I will mention pancakes that don’t have a link to the recipe will be at the end of this post.

Keto Reboot Update

9 days ago I finished the Pruvit Keto Reboot. I went 60 hours without food and survived on just liquids. I can’t say for sure If I lost any weight because I don’t own a scale. I will say this my clothes are a bit looser on me and my stomach Is flatter. I’ll Insert a 1-week picture update now. Scroll down for the continued update.

1 Week Post Reboot

20180425_120913 (1)This picture Is 100% real. I didn’t do any fancy posing I didn’t suck It In. This Is what my stomach looks like after 9 days post reboot and first thing In the morning with no food or water yet. Believe me when I drank water after I took this picture my stomach looked like I was 5 months pregnant.

Keto Update Continued

During the 3 days, I ate pretty light and I did eat keto per the Reboot after Instructions. I broke my fast around the 62-hour mark. I made a BIG cup of coffee and 2 eggs. It was the most delicious meal I ever had! My stomach was a bit queasy after. I think It was due to the fact that I broke my fast with coffee? (Yes I did drink water when I woke up). After I ate I made what Is called a fat-burning salad dressing. I will post the link to the original recipe below ( I did modify It to my personal needs I made It vegan).

https://ketodietapp.com/Blog/post/2015/07/08/fat-burning-salad-dressing

I made a salad for lunch and pancakes for dinner. I will post the link to what I ate after the reboot. Day 2 post reboot I did keep It keto and simple keto simple recipes. The recipes were super simple and super easy to make but did require some Ingredients that I didn’t have on hand. (In a future blog I will post some of my favorite recipes from the past 9 days).  I have kept It Keto and haven’t gone back to my “old ways”.

Breaking Bad Habits

Since finishing the reboot I really, for the most part, haven’t gone back to my old habits. I have made some changes and If I didn’t do the Reboot this post wouldn’t even exist. When you are doing the reboot you aren’t allowed soda or caffeine or soda or anything. The reboot Is a liquid diet. During the reboot, my body detoxed from all the sugar and caffeine I filled my body with before and even the day of the reboot.

The main thing I noticed when coming off the reboot Is that I didn’t crave soda or sugary candy or junk food. It Is true what they say. This reboot does reset your body to a healthier lifestyle whether you are going keto or just want a fresh start for a healthier you. I did go back to soda (not often) when I do drink soda I drink coke zero and I will only have a small glass now back In the day before the reboot I could have a whole 2 liter In one day. I also didn’t go back to candy. I use to eat a whole bag full of sour patch kids In one day and In one sitting. I haven’t had sour patch kids In actually 2 weeks. I stopped eating candy 2 weeks before the reboot so my body wouldn’t go Into total shock. And as for junk food. I only eat either keto friendly junk food or Benitos chips. They aren’t that keto friendly In terms of carbs. But When the craving hits I just eat a few to satisfy that craving.

Am I Still Doing Keto/ Intermittent Fasting

I am still doing keto but It’s more of a trial basis. As currently I am recipe testing keto recipes and trying to either make It vegan It or make It vegetarian. I have been eating a lot more salads because It Is the easiest way for me to hit my macros and still have some room for when the junk food craving hit. I have started Intermittent fasting again and honestly, I didn’t do It on purpose I started drinking bulletproof coffee and I stopped eating when I wasn’t hungry anymore and with those things combined, I unintentionally started Intermittent fasting. I can’t say I mind It. The thing Is some days I can go almost 20 hours without eating because I’m just not that hungry. Also on those days, I eat maybe 1 meal and 1 snack for that day and that IS NOT HEALTHY!

So now I try and break my fast around 5 and eat until 10 or 11 pm. For some they don’t like going to bed full I, however, don’t mind going to bed feeling full. Also, I am up until 3 am so It does give my body some time to digest before I lay down.

Keto Long Term

As of right now, I can’t say If I will do It long term. I can say I do see myself continuing the Keto lifestyle for a long time but how long of a time Is to be determined. I can’t deny the results I maintained and saw from eating Keto for 9 days. The main thing I learned In these 9 days Is that keto Is mind over matter. If you are coming off of what Is called “The Standard American Diet” and you want to start the Keto Lifestyle than you might have to mentally prepare yourself. Keto Is a lifestyle, not just a diet. Diet Is something you do Short term to reach your ideal weight.

Disclaimer: I want to put a Disclaimer out there. If you have ever suffered from some type of eating disorder or your relationship with food Is bad. THAN KETO IS NOT FOR YOU! In the beginning when you switch your diet from low fat to high fat, low carb diet It can suppress your appetite. I should know. I think the reason for mine Is because of the Bulletproof coffee. Keto Is not designed for you to Intake little to no calories. Listen to me when I say the loss of appetite will go away and your body will go back to normal. Mine took about the 9 days to start being normal again and because your appetite Is suppressed you may also experience constipation. Before I went Keto I was “regular” and when I switched from an unhealthy vegetarian diet to a Keto/Vegetarian diet my body was backed up for about 3 days and then It took about 5 days to get back to full regular schedule. 

Fitness & Health Goals

I am VERY thankful to be a healthy woman. I don’t have any serious health “Issues” and for that I am thankful. I don’t have a certain weight I would like to see on the scale. I just go with the flow and If I had to put a number than I would say I would like to lose 30 pounds to start and then go from there. I stand at 5’5. So yes you can say I am overweight for my height. And as for Fitness goals. I do yoga 3-4 times a week to stretch and loosen my body back up. And when the gym opens up by my house I’ll join and start going to the gym. I also walk my dogs 2 times daily and to get some “extra” steps I walk the separate so that means I walk 4 times a day.

Chia Seed Pudding

The one thing about being on Keto Is that we aren’t deprived. Honestly, since starting Keto I thought what about desserts? I have a sweet tooth and I like knowing I have a sweet treat on hand when the craving strikes. I am a seasoned baker In all different diet areas. I know how to bake for Paleo, Vegan.Gluten Free, Vegetarian, and Atkins. Now I am learning how to bake Keto friendly desserts. For those of you who are new to my blog, I have food allergies and sensitivities. So baking sweet treats that are Keto friendly and safe for me to consume have been trial and error.

 Chia Seed Pudding Is so easy and only requires a few Ingredients most of them you probably already have. When I was Vegan I use to use melt Vegan Milk Chocolate and make Chia Seed Pudding that way. The old way I use to make It would take a bit longer. Now I can make Chia Pudding In 15 minutes and 99% of the time Is spend you mixing It. For this Keto recipe, I used Hershey’s Dark Chocolate If you don’t like Dark Chocolate you can use whatever you like.

Here Is the Chocolate Powder I used

20180422_213454

4 Ingredient Keto Chia Pudding

You can change the Ingredients according to your preference and taste.

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup of Plant Milk (I used So Delicious Almond Milk again you can use whatever you like)

4 Tablespoons of Stevia (or any sweetener of your choice)

1 cup of Chia Seeds ( I like chia seeds hence the cup but you can always use 1/2 cup)

1/4 Cup of Hershey’s Cocoa Special Dark ( Use what you like)

Directions:

  1. Pour all the Ingredients Into a big bowl.
  2.  Mix for 15 minutes

20180422_131101 Pictured Is about 10 minutes worth of whisking. Don’t worry If It seems liquidy It will turn to pudding.

20180422_213526 This Is 15 minutes of whisking and as you can see It did turn Into a pudding!

3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

TIP: You can add some low carb whip cream on top or you can add some fresh berries.

I hope you enjoy making this recipe. If you change anything or If you made It as It please let me know how It turned out.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Keep an eye out because I will be posting more Keto, Allergy Friendly, and Gluten Free recipes. I’m In the test kitchen phase now and as each recipe turns successful I will share It you my lovely subscribers.

Keto Pizza Sauce

This Is an easy no-cook (just a few minutes to heat through) pizza sauce. This sauce has no sugar, no dairy and It’s Gluten Free. If you want to make this Into a “pasta” sauce all you have to do Is change the seasonings and add some type of “milk” to make It thicker If you like your sauce on the thicker side. I like my sauce thin so I add NO liquid at all.

I decided I would post this recipe because It’s for anyone who Is low carb and Keto and this sauce Is just too good not to share with all of you. The one thing I set out to do with being Keto Is that I want to show all of you (my lovely subscribers) that spending hours In the kitchen making homemade Sunday sauce Is the thing of the past.

You probably remember that any sauce you buy Is loaded with garlic, onions, and herbs and the taste still didn’t seem right. The recipe I came up with Is a combo of two different recipes to make this very tasty pizza sauce. This recipe can get but Into a high powered blender! I honestly never made sauce before going, Keto. Did I mention that this recipe Is also vegan and allergy friendly? Sorry If you have any allergies to the Ingredients In the picture. I made this sauce according to my food allergies and dietry needs.

                      The Stuff I Used For The Recipe

The seasonings you see are the ones I chose to use for this recipe. You can always change the seasonings according to your taste or preference. 

Ingredients

1 28 oz. can of Whole Peeled Plum Tomatoes ( Or just peeled tomatoes)

1 Dash of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

2 Tbsp of Italian Seasoning ( Or to taste)

2 Tbsp of Garlic Powder ( Or to taste)

2 Tbsp of Seasoning Salt (Or to taste)

2 Tbsp of Garlic Seasoning (Or to taste)

1 Medium red onion (roughly chopped) (Optional)

With the Ingredients above EVERYTHING can be made to your specific taste. I personally like Garlic so I don’t mind the Garlic taste.

                             Directions

In your food processor blend the red onions until slightly mushy. Now In your blender add EVERYTHING! Blend until all the Ingredients are well combined. (OPTIONAL) If you want you can heat the pizza sauce over medium-low heat until bubbly. 

And that Is It. You now have yourself the perfect pizza sauce. I paired this recipe with a homemade pizza dip (I’ll post the recipe soon!) 

   What It Should Look Like When It’s Done

It should look like this If you decided to heat It up
