Welcome to 2018, folks! I'm coming up on my one-year keto anniversary and I wanted to share with you, my beloved keto community 5 essential vegan keto products Amazon has RIGHT NOW for your New Year health journey.
You know you are an adult when your Christmas present to yourself is a new low carb snack. Lupini beans have been making a delicious splash in the keto community because they are low carb, high fiber, and a great source of plant based protein. When they arrived I started thinking about all the ways I could use them, and then after a discussion about falafels in Vegan Keto Made Simple, I had an idea: KETO FALAFELS! I threw together the Sea Salt and Garlic & Herb packs in my food processor with the foundation of a basic falafel recipe and BOOM:
Have you ever seen anything so beautiful in your low carb life?! They were DELICIOUS!
You have seen me mention this protein powder in multiple blog posts, most recently Vegan Keto: What I Eat In A Day, which has become quite popular! This is a pea protein isolate based powder that is ZERO NET CARBS, and when you pair it with Ripple Milk (unsweetened original) you can work a zero net carb meal into your day. Need something else for your shake? Well that brings me to my next keto product..
Notes from Meg: It was brought to my attention today that the nutritional label shown on Amazon for this product says that it's 2g net carbs. When I hopped on over to Vega's website it tells me it's 1g net carbs. Weird, right? Well I grabbed my new tub of Vega Essentials Vanilla and it confirmed that I wasn't crazy with 0g net carb right there on the nutritional label. I spoke with my fellow admin, Madi from Vegan Keto Madi and we suspect that what is showing on Amazon is a label for the version available in Canada, which does in fact have different macors. I emailed Vega to get a straight answer and will update this post as soon as I hear from them!
Until then, ONE OR TWO NET CARBS IS STILL AMAZING FOR THIS PRODUCT! But I want you to have accurate information before you purchase a product I'm telling you is amazing. Love you!
How can a protein shake meet your macros and carry a caloric punch? MCT oil, my friend. Start with a small amount in your shake (1 tsp) and work your way up to 1-2 Tablespoons. This oil is very versitile and can be used in salad dressings too!
Speaking of salads, hemp hearts are my favorite topper that is a nutritional powerhouse! With ZERO NET CARBS, high protein and heart healthy fats, hemp hearts are another versitile keto staple that can be used in just about anything. Remember those falafels I raved about above? I threw some in the mix to add texture and protein. That protein shake I talked about? I was feeling fancy and sprinkled some on top.
Need a brownie? How about a brownie covered in almond butter with those Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts sprinkled on top?? That's what you get with the Pegan Thin Chocolate Lava bar. I feel almost unworthy in its presence! So rich and delicious, how is this even my keto life rn, guys?! This bar has saved me when I've been on the run, full time workin', single mom livin', homefront runnin', and I have no time to stop and eat. I'm not even kidding I have this bar in my purse right now and I always have this bar in my purse! This past summer I was enlisted to help my Grammie move to her new retirement community and half way through the madness I was STARVING. Out from my purse *praise emoji hands* was my Pegan bar. It's delicious macros saved my life, and I always keep a box in the house!
