Paleo / Vegan Diet

Are you a “Pegan”?

You’ve probably heard of the paleo and plant-based diets.

Maybe you’ve tried one or the other (or both!), or maybe you’re just tired of hearing your friends on Facebook brag about their healthy meals.

If you’ve been caught between Paleo and plant-based…

...There is now a trend that unites these two diets in holy matrimony. It’s known as Pegan, or Paleo-Vegan (plant based). This bond produces many benefits that might interest you.

Paleo / Vegan Diet

This diet has a low glycemic load. You get most of your energy from the healthy fats, veggies, and protein that you eat. Your body’s blood sugar levels won’t fluctuate because of it.

Eating this way also reduces the load of pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, GMOs, chemicals, additives, preservatives, dyes, MSGs, and artificial sweeteners and leaves you with a colorful plate full of nutrients.

Because of the focus on healthy fats, you will get plenty of Omega 3s through oils, nuts, and seeds. High, healthy fat diets helps with heart and neurology diseases..

So what do you eat on this diet?

Just like the paleo and plant-based diets, you stay away from dairy and gluten, but you’re allowed to have goat or sheep’s milk sparingly and about half a cup of healthy grains a day.

The majority of your food intake will consist of veggies and fruits, with the amount of vegetables you eat being double your fruit consumption..

Paleo / Vegan Diet

Keep eating that meat, but make it more of a condiment in your diet. Make sure it comes from good sources and is antibiotic free with no added hormones. Grass fed and free range are important components too.

You will also want to stay away from sugar, soy, and legumes, because they are going to tax your blood sugar levels.

This “Pegan” diet uses the best parts of the Paleo and Plant-Based diets. 

If it interests you, do some research and see if it would benefit you.
