4 Savory High-Fat, Low-Carb Vegan Recipes You’ll Want To Keep Coming Back To

I don’t have a joke for my friends here about vegetables — so if you do, lettuce know. (ha, ha. I know. I can be funny sometimes).

Let’s talk about veggies!

It’s not easy eating the Vegan way. Sure, there are a lot more options nowadays — but are they actually good for you? Sometimes these veggie based meals are packed with carbohydrates and lack proper nutrients.

So, we’re here today to go over some HFLC Vegan meals that are tasty too! Remember — don’t be afraid of certain types of fats. Our bodies appreciate proper sources of good fats to function, as well as lots of protein.

Now let’s get to the good stuff!

Broccoli Tofu Stir Fry

You can’t have any dessert until you eat your broccoli! I’m sure every kid has heard this at some point or another. Funny thing is — now I can’t wait to eat my broccoli.

I think it’s pretty obvious that broccoli is one of the best vegetables to add to your diet as far as vitamins go. But did you know that broccoli is rich in fiber and even has some protein? Even better — tofu is another great source of protein and boasts good fats.
