What is Vegan Keto?

The vegan ketogenic diet is a vegan variation of the low-carb, high-fat, keto diet. It's more restrictive than veganism in general because it restricts even natural sweeteners like maple syrup and honey (which are vegan), and has stricter fat and protein restrictions. By restricting carbs even further, this diet forces the body to rely primarily on vegan keto fats for energy. As a result, vegan ketogenic diets can be some of the most nutrient-dense diets you'll find as long as care is taken to plan vegan keto meals that are both vegan and high fat.

Here are five delicious vegan keto recipes to try at home:
