When I work with clients, the question that always seems to arise is, “but how do I stick to a vegan keto diet while traveling?” It can become easy to maintain the same routine in the bubble of your home when you’re able to go grocery…

Why Do People Gain All the Weight Back After Stopping Keto?

Recently, I received a really good question via a blog comment that I thought deserved its own post. A reader commented that she was interested in starting a vegan keto diet, but had noticed that everyone who she knew who had done keto had actually gained back all the weight they lost.

Low-FODMAP Vegan Chickpea Scramble

Low-FODMAP Vegan Chickpea Scramble

AIP Vegan Cranberry Banana Cookies (Gluten Free, Nut Free, Paleo)

While I’m a huge fan of elimination diets like the Auotimmune Protocol (AIP, also known as Autoimmune Paleo), they can definitely be difficult to stick to.
