3 easy vegan keto snacks

Vegan keto diet is one of the most stringent, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have delicious recipes.

The main rules of the keto diet are:

1. Limit total carbohydrate intake to 35 grams or less per day.

2. Exclude all meat, fish, dairy products, eggs and other animal products from your diet.

3. Eat lots of low-carbohydrate vegetables.

4. Get at least 70% of calories from vegetable fats.

5. Consume about 25% of your calories from plant proteins.

6. Add nutrients you may not supplement with a vegetarian diet enough (e.g. vitamins D3, B12 and B6, DHA and EPA, iron, zinc and taurine).
