Guide to the Vegan Keto Diet

People tend to think the keto diet is all meat and dairy. And while it’s true that meat and dairy are great sources of healthy fats and protein, there are lots of vegan-friendly ways to get your macros for the day. If you think creatively, a vegan keto diet is not only possible, but incredibly easy. Here’s what to do:

Limiting Carbs on a Vegan Keto Diet:

As with any keto diet, carbs should only make up a small amount of the vegan keto diet (about 5%). Here are some high-carb foods to avoid:

While carbs should be minimized, healthy fats make up the bulk of a vegan keto diet (about 75%). Here are some low-carb foods you can enjoy:

Vegan Alternatives to Keto Staples

There are tons of great resources for keto meals and recipes, but it can be harder to find vegan keto recipes. Instead of scouring the Internet for options, try these vegan keto alternatives to typical keto staples:

Eating Enough Fat

Fat makes up most of the keto diet, and the vegan keto diet is no different. But without relying on meat or dairy, it can be difficult for vegan keto dieters to eat enough fat. Here are some high-fat foods to help you meet your daily fat macros:

Oils

Oils are an awesome way to ensure you’re getting enough fat in your diet. Coconut, macadamia, avocado, MCT, and olive oils are high in healthy fats with no carbs at all. If you’re looking to take oils on the go, check out FBOMB Premium Oils.

Avocados

If you’ve been around KetoLogic for any amount of time, you probably know our love of avocados is unmatched. A typical avocado has 29g of fat and only 4g of net carbs [2]. Best of all, there are a ton of ways to use avocados to spice up just about any recipe.

Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds are a great way to add fat into your diet. Macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans, and cashews are all great options, as well as coconut meat and pumpkin, chia, sunflower, and sesame seeds. And if you’re looking for a convenient way to take keto-friendly nuts anywhere you go, check out FBOMB Nut Butters for a portable shot of energy wherever you go.

Conclusion

At first glance, it may seem like the keto and vegan diets are incompatible. However, with a little creativity and the right know-how, the vegan keto diet is delicious, nutritious, and easy to do.
