I went to Pinterest and searched for "low-carb vegan" and came up with many pins, and a couple boards with a bunch of pins for that topic. You might find something there that can work for you.

Some of those look pretty good.


I don't use cookbooks anymore. It's so easy to find recipes for what I want online. I especially like Pinterest for this.

@jawnn

I was searching the internet for "low carb vegan" to find a blog of someone doing this and found this interesting site:

https://www.healthfulpursuit.com/201...o-plant-based/

She has a free guide to download (I didn't do this because you have to register first so don't know what's on it.)

There's a video conversation with a vegan who is eating LCHF ketogenic. I didn't listen to all of it, but seemed interesting that there is someone doing this.

Let me know if this was any help. And if it's a good site for us to refer others to who are approaching a plant-based LCHF way of eating.

I don't buy peanut butter in a jar. oour food coop has a grinder. nothing bu tlarge peanuts and salt. Maybe I should find a count for just peanuts....

Most coconut oil scources are owned by the same mega corp that owns crisco. they are the ones that started the transfat revolution in the 60's that is now proven to be the prime scource of heart disease pandemic.

Eggs are fairly cheap and good nutrition as well as providing fat.

I just noticed last week at the grocery store that Crisco has an organic coconut oil that's 2/3 the price of the other brands, and twice the volume.

Does this eating only one large meal a day effect my problem with my blood sugar going up and up if
I don't eat breakfast? Well I do feel better when I go to the library for several hours, without eating breakfast. I should take boiled eggs for after I am finnished.

This morning I got a reading of 180bg (fasting over night). I was shocked so I did it again and got 116bg. So was it a bit of residue from the alchohal I used to clean my finger? It felt dry, but I don't know what else it could be. The meter is only a few months old. My last one was going to crazy, then I found out they did not make the test strips for it anymore. So when I got the new one, I could see that the old one was disfuntional.

I am building a tempeh incubator, and if that doesnot save me form junk food.

And now my word procceor stoped working.

When you eat food, your stomach shrinks to default size. Plus you'll appreciate food or whatever you consume even more.

The ingredients of the jar is just peanuts and salt. So I think you can use this for your ground peanuts.

Meter's don't usually go bad, but one can have an occasional bad strip. If a reading is higher (or much lower) than expected, do what you did and test again.

I don't use alcohol to clean my fingers before testing. Over time that can toughen the skin and dry it out. I just use warm water and a little soap, and dry well with a towel.

If you are in ketosis or VLC/HF and lets say a 2000 calorie diet, you have to eat 2000 calories in one meal and 1500 of those calories needs to come from fat. 400 calories from protein and 100 calories from carbs. I think for a few weeks this is something that is excellent and can help your body reset or focus on VLC/HF but im personally not sure that 2000 calories in one meal consistently will work (at least for me)

if done right with the right macros, I definitely see this as something that will work. Personally im not sure I could do this consistently every day

hopefully others will share their experiences as well
Thanks for your reply Hftmrock - Yeah I'm actually on about day 20th of this diet. I think I'll continue this till I get my fat percentage down but overall, I'm really enjoying it. I don't follow the Ketosis or any special way of dividing my protein etc. All I do is eat a nice meal at around 11 am (Brown Rice, Beans with some spicy sauce and a super greens powder drink powder / soy milk drink). Then it's just water or watermelons. I also run every other day in the morning and do some pushups, pull ups and light weight lifting. So far so good Weight loss is noticeable. Why so extreme tho? Well I have the most challenging body type - Skinny Fat. We look skinny but store some serious fat. I was at 25% maybe more and if you saw me with my t-shirt on, you'd think nothing is wrong with me. - I do have a cheat day once a week but I prefer to be on my Brown rice or just change the recipe a little bit.

this seems a bit high with carbs. depending on how much rice you eat, you might be 100 , 150, 200g of carbs in this meal. that seems alot

Brown rice is something most of us have given up or use in VERY small amounts and not sure how much watermelon but that too has carbs.

just food for thought

Hey Hftmrock - Wow and I though brown rice was decent as far as Carb intake went. What do you recommend? I do want to limit my carbs - thats for sure. By body is prone to store it almost immediately. Thx!

Hi Ericlobster, I'm guessing you have a BG meter. Test your BG before you eat that meal and then test an hour, two hours, and three hours after your first bite. That will tell you how decent it is for you. For me, it would be an instant failure. You might do some research on how to retrograde the starch in those beans and the rice and make it more user friendly.

As far as brown rice, it is not as healthy as they make it out to be. More nutrients than in white rice, probably, but also anti-nutrients that keeps us from absorbing those nutrients.
