Vegetarianism & Veganism

While some choose to go vegan or vegetarian for religious or ethical reasons, the truth is that veganism just isn’t the healthiest option for humans. Even when taking supplements, you’ll likely become deficient in many important vitamins and nutrients, like iron, omega-3s, B-vitamins, calcium, and more, that your body needs and receives from meat, eggs, and fish. While The Paleo Diet® allows for as many fruits and veggies as your body desires, we still recommend eating enough animal protein to meet your body’s important nutritional needs.
