Recipes For the Modern Ketotarian

I used to be vegan until I wasn’t anymore. And, even thought it’s been YEARS since I labeled myself as being vegan, I still very much associate myself as being more plant-based than most other humans.

When keto was newly on the scene, a lot of people assumed that it was all meat + animal fat. But, there’s a lot more to keto than meats the eye (haha see what I did there?).

You may thrive on more of a plant-based approach to your eating style, and even though some keto “experts” would advise against it, I think you’re the best judge of how your body thrives, not a stranger on the internet. If you decide to be a keto vegan, a keto vegetarian, or keto pescatarian, it’s completely doable.

Especially when you have the right plant-based keto recipes in your arsenal!

And, if it’s support you need, know that you’re not alone in your interest in eating plants, and being keto. People do this, doctors do this, you’ve got this!

You Can Like Plants and Not Be Ketotarian

Just cause this is a plant-based recipe doesn’t mean you have to BE plant-based in order to enjoy it.

If you liked hummus before you went keto, and you’re in need of a keto spread that goes fabulously with veggies, look no further than this keto hummus!

It can be made with either skinned almonds or macadamia nuts, is the perfect consistency, and uses ingredients that are pretty darn easy to access, no matter where you are in the world.

Let’s get to eating!
