I meal prep this chili almost every week because it’s easy and inexpensive to make. When I used to eat strictly vegan this is one of the first things I started making, I recommend it anyone who’s just starting out or looking to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet. You can make this in a pot over low heat or a slow cooker, and the ingredients are of course interchangeable to whatever you like better. I usually switch up the veggies and spices, it always comes out different!

Avocado Sauce on Zoodles

As a nutrition student, it’s really fun for me to experiment with new foods and recipes and learn alongside about the nutrition and health aspects of what I’m making. I’ve been looking into trying Keto but want to keep it mostly plant based if I can. This is my first take at a keto-plantbased meal.

I found this article really interesting:
Just because something is β€œlow-carb” and β€œhigh-fat” or β€œketo” doesn’t mean you should be eating it. The conventional keto diet often focuses too heavily on dairy, meat, and artificial sweeteners, all in the name of being low-carb and high-fat. This can sometimes work for people to lose weight and gain energy in the short term but has potential long-term health impacts that concern me. Our gut microbiome needs a variety of plant foods for rich bacterial diversity to thrive. With conventional keto, people may focus too much on saturated fats, and I often see inflammation levels spike on labs for people with gut problemsΒ and gene mutations (such as the APOE4 allele). Plus, some people have difficulty digesting a lot of dairy and meat.
A ketogenic diet puts your metabolism in nutritional ketosis, a fat-burning state that eschews the volatility of swinging between high and low blood sugar and has the effect of curbing most cravings. There is so much exciting research emerging on ketosis and the main ketone your liver produces, beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB). When you get your body to produce ketonesβ€”which is what follows naturally when your body burns through all available carbsβ€”they can also pass through the blood-brain barrier, providing your brain with clean, efficient energy.

This is a great snack, chopped veggies with feta and balsamic!
πŸ₯—
If I’m meal prepping something like this for work, I leave the tomatoes whole and bring dressing on the side!

If you want to make vegan feta, I have used this great recipe in the past from @simpleveganblog
This is copied from simpleveganblog.com and is not my ownπŸ™‚
