What I Ate Today | Vegan Keto | Fall Comfort Food

What I Ate Today | Vegan Keto | Fall Comfort Food

All I kept thinking was, “I do not care that it is blazing hot outside. I want Comfort Food & Pumpkin Spice!”

It IS September!

So basically, I kind of mixed the two together.

I created a dish full of savory warm goodness… WITH gravy, a Pumpkin Pie Spice Protein Fat Bomb <-how keto does that sound?? AND a chilled PB&J Chia Protein Pudding.

Now.

While, I generally try to have more whole foods in terms of my vegan keto protein, this day was created on a whim. I double checked my micronutrients & they were on point(except for iodine–add in a package of gimMe roasted seaweed to cover your iodine for 0net carbs & 25calories).

Honestly, this kind of day is great for someone who only has time to cook one meal.


Let’s Get To It

I started with what I prepped first to eat later in the day. The cooked meal will be last.
Please be aware that my macro breakdown could be different than yours due to products you use being different; however, this can give you New Recipes to try & Meal Ideas.


Meal #1

PB&J Chia Protein Pudding

  • Vega Essentials Vanilla, 1/2scoop
  • Unsweetened Soy Milk, 1/2c
  • Unsweetened Almond Vanilla Milk, 1/2c
  • Frozen Mixed Berries, 1/2c
  • Manitoba Shelled Hemp Seeds, 3tbsp
  • Chia Seeds, 1tbsp
  • Roasted & Salted Peanuts, 1/4c

In a blender, blend everything except for the Chia Seeds & Peanuts. Pour in to a glass or jar. Mix in Chia Seeds. Refrigerate for at least an hour. I like it best after at least 4 hours. Can be made the night before. Before serving, top with Peanuts. Best served chilled.

Meal #2
Pumpkin Pie Spice Fat Bomb
Pumpkin Pie Spice Protein Fat Bomb (serves 2)

  • Walnuts, 2tbsp
    • If using raw, toast in a pan for a couple minutes before
  • Vegan Butter, 1/2tbsp melted ->I used Earth Balance
  • Pumpkin, 1/2c (canned & NOT pie filling)
  • Coconut Oil, 2tbsp melted
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice, 1tsp
  • Sea Salt, 1/2tsp
  • Vega Essentials Vegan Protein Powder, 1/2scoop
  • Maple Extract, 1/4tsp

Crush toasted walnuts however you like. I chose to put them in a plastic baggy & bulldoze them with a rolling pin. In a small bowl, add crushed walnuts & melted butter. Mix well. Split in two. In a cupcake wrapper, I use If You Care liners, pat down in the bottom.

In a medium size bowl, add ALL the rest of the ingredients & mix well. Split in two. Top the walnuts with this mixture. Pat down then refrigerate for at least an hour. To have the MOST Pumpkin Spice flavor come through, refrigerate overnight. A serving is 1 protein fat bomb.

Meal #3

Sausage Sauerkraut & Gravy

  • Earth Balance Butter, 1tbsp divided
  • Beyond Meat Brat
  • Xanthan Gum, 1/2tsp
  • Bragg Nutritional Yeast, 1/2tbsp
  • Sea Salt, 1/2tsp

  • Unsweetened Soy Milk, 1/2c
  • White Miso, 1/2tsp
  • Kale, 3c chopped
  • Riced Cauliflower, 3/4c
  • Bubbies Sauerkraut, 1/4c

Use 1 sauce pan to lessen the mess. Melt 1/2tbsp butter over medium heat. Crumble Beyond Brat with your fingers in to the pan. Cook until browned. Scoop out on to a plate. Melt the other 1/2tbsp butter. Add xanthan gum, nutritional yeast, salt & pepper. Whisk well for 1 minute. Sloowly whisk in vegetable broth and white miso. Whisk for 4-5 minutes until it starts to thicken. Whisk in soy milk then do the same. Continue to whisk until it has a thicker gravy consistency. Add chopped kale & cauliflower rice. Let cook until kale has wilted & is soft.

On to a plate, pour the kale & gravy mixture. Top with sauerkraut & beyond meat crumbles. OR, you can stir in to the gravy the Beyond Brat crumbles then top with sauerkraut when plating. Serve warm.

In Between Snacks:

TOTAL MACROS:

Calories 1457 | Fat 92.3G | Net Carbs 24.9G | Protein 92.2G

…the Brami Lipini Beans were a 9pm snack that were completely unnecessary. I felt too full after that AND made my protein go much higher than it needed to be. Otherwise, it was a great day!
