Whether you are new to a vegan keto diet or you have been living that lifestyle for a while, we have created this vegan keto guide for you. If you are a vegan using keto principles to control your weight or just improve your well-being, we can help you with vegan keto meal prep and planning.
Which is healthier? Vegan versus Keto?
The good news is that you don’t have to choose. Many vegans successfully navigate a keto diet through the use of high-fat meat and dairy substitutes such as nut butter and cheeses, almond or coconut milk and plant-based protein such as tempeh and tofu. Don’t forget low carb vegetables and fruit too. You can be a vegan and follow the keto diet with a bit of thought.
Where can you get vegan keto protein?
Vegan plant-based protein can come from a range of sources including tempeh and tofu, seeds such as flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds and vegetables such as mushrooms, kale and spinach. Vegan keto fat bombs are also useful additions to your diet. If you are still concerned about protein Planet Organic’s range of keto supplements includes additional sources of protein such as vegan keto protein powders and shakes.
What vegan keto results can you expect?
Any vegan keto diet is designed to help with weight control and management of your metabolism and appetite. It can take a few days to reach ketosis, the state where your body doesn't have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy and turns to fat instead. Once you’re in that state many vegan keto diet followers have reported weight loss within a week. Studies have shown this weight loss can be more long term than other forms of dieting too.
Keto vegan ideas to help your meal planning
A healthy ketogenic vegan diet should consist of about 75% fat, 10-30% protein and no more than 5% or 20 to 50 grams of carbohydrates per day. It is a good idea to focus on high-fat, low-carb foods like nut and seed dairy alternatives, oils and low-carb vegetables. Highly processed foods and the unhealthy fats associated with them are to be avoided. Things to have on your vegan keto shopping list also include olive oils, coconut and almond oils, fermented foods such as sauerkraut and kimchi, raspberries, blackberries and other low glycemic impact berries, protein from tempeh and tofu and mushrooms, kale, spinach, cauliflower and broccoli.
