Top 5 Vegan, Low Carb Foods that Happen to be Gluten-Free

Top 5 Vegan, Low Carb Foods that Happen to be Gluten-Free

by Carrie Kane, MSHN - Heirloom Nourishment

In the struggle of quarantined weight gain, many vegans are looking for low carb foods that are packed with energy but easy on the waistline. With the popularity of paleo and keto diets, most of the low carb options are high in animal products. We’ve sought out some of the most innovative and delectable options and as an added bonus, they are all gluten-free.

#1     The Joey Bar

Many vegans are as passionate about philanthropy as they are about animals, so an added bonus of this delicious multi-layered snack bar is that they are handmade by adults living with autism; providing a sensory and low-anxiety work place in northern Washington state. But you don’t have to compromise taste for charity! The Joey Bar is unlike anything we’ve tried and each bite feels decadent and unique. They start with a nutty crust spread with caramel and topped with a coconut butter frosting, macadamia nuts, peanut butter, and naturally sweetened dark chocolate chips with no sweetener substitutes. Each bars contains a serving of both cordyceps and lion’s mane mushrooms and comes in at a low 9 net carbs! We were amazed at how full we felt from one bar making it a fabulous meal on the go. For a list of stores who carry the bars or to simply order online go to TheJoeyBar.com 

#2     Dang Bars

Dang Coconut Chips and Snack Bars - With a variety of tasty options ranging from Mint Chocolate to Lemon Matcha, Dang Keto Bars help pump the brain with healthy plant-based fats and only 5 net carbs per bar because they are sweetened with a hint of stevia. Thanks to pea protein, each bar contains 9 grams of protein. Another beloved Dang product are coconut chips (unsweetened variety) as they are a great way to combat the munchies. These light crispy chips can be enjoyed with naturally low carb guacamole or Pico de Gallo. Available in most health food stores or online at dangfoods.com 

#3     Brami Snacking Lupini Beans

How have we managed through life without being introduced to lupini beans? Brami features this Mediterranean stack with a variety of flavors, but our favorite is the Chili Lime! The incredible feat of 0 net carbs is made possible by a high fiber count with the addition of high protein. Brami also makes a hummus so you can dip your Dang Coconut Chips and bliss out in your low carb world! Brami can be found in many health food stores including Thrive Market, as well as online at bramifoods.com

#4     Uplift Gut Happy Cookies

The lupini bean makes another appearance this time in the form of a low carb flour that creates the crispy cream-filled Uplift Gut Happy Cookie. With only 7 net carbs per package and three flavors; Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate and Coconut, Sunflower Butter with Vanilla and Chia, and Salted Almond Butter with Vanilla and Hemp seeds, these bars have pulled together an impressive ingredient list including Tigernut flour, faba bean protein without added sugars and obtaining it’s sweetness from monk fruit. These bars also have prebiotics and probiotics that may benefit gut health! Just making their debut in stores now, but they now can be purchased at Thrive Market and directly at upliftfoods.com.

#5     SeaSnax

No vegan should be without the much needed iodine found in seaweed and SeaSnax packs an affordable tasty zero carb option for munching on the go. Made with 100% olive oil and sea salt, new enhanced flavors give us the fieriness of chipotle and the savoriness of toasted onion. Our favorite reason to indulge? You can’t beat the price and they pack nicely in any bag for snacks that the whole family craves.
