Top 5 Must-Follow Keto Vegans on Social Media
Veganism gets a bad rap in the keto world due to it's high carb consumption (typically). There are a few different types of vegan diets, but conventionally you consume whole plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. Foods to avoid include meat, fish, dairy, eggs, and bee products. This can be problematic to keto dieters, as meat, fish, dairy, eggs, and vegetables make up the majority of their meals.
So we tend to butt heads.
There are many benefits to following a vegan lifestyle though. You eliminate foods that tend to be more inflammatory, such as dairy, you eat more vegetables, and you avoid supporting feed lots, which can have poor living conditions for animals.
If you plan on giving the Keto-Vegan Diet a try, we recommend checking out this article by ruled.me, A Comprehensive Guide to the Vegan Ketogenic Diet.
And give these Vegans and Keto-Vegans listed below a follow for tips and tricks on making the transition as smooth as possible!
It can be done.

Asian market finds: Galangal. Have you cooked with galangal before? Galangal may resemble ginger in some ways but make no mistake as it contributes a fragrant lemony pungency in cooking unlike that of ginger. I use it often to make spice paste for Malaysian curries. It is tough and extremely fibrous (often sending the food processor into a rattle when making the paste), and care should be taken when handling it from peeling to cutting. 💚 . . #galangal #healthyingredients #asianmarket #asianspices #malaysianfood #asianfoodie
