I've been a vegetarian for 2 years. I won't go back to eating meat. So don't try to convince me otherwise ;) :P I'm wondering if there's anyone else out there that does this effectively as well as your thoughts on the pros and cons. I do eat eggs and cheese, both local and organic. I do not drink milk but I love both almond and coconut milks.

Cheese wouldn't work in the Paleo diet, which would leave you with lots of eggs to get your b12, etc. Are you averse to eating fish?

I would think it depends on your interpretation of Paleo. My personal interpretation is: Very simply, eat what our ancestors ate before the agricultural revolution.Basically,, Eat nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables. And on occasion meat.

But as a vegetarian of course the meat is out,,so consider adding legumes (if tolerated)

Can it be done long term?? As long as you watch your protein ,B12 and D levels ,, why not. :)

My body doesn't tolerate meat very well at all, and I really don't like it-never have. I've considered putting in a serving of fish a week, but haven't made the jump yet. I know the cheese doesn't work on an actual Paleo diet, but because I can't eat a dozen eggs per day, greek yogurt and 1 serving of cheese per day are an added protein that I need. I eat nuts daily, lower carb fruits like berries, lots of veggies and almost nothing processed. I'm working on getting most of the grains out of my diet other than perhaps quinoa. It's still a work in progress ;) So, I guess I won't give it a name, because from what I've read on other blogs and forums, Paleo's take their diet waaaaaay serious. I don't wish to offend B)

I think you should do a vegetarian paleo with whatever you want and call it the Rachelle-Paleo diet. If you are careful, it should work from a nutrition and health standpoint. It will just take more work than a regular paleo diet.

Personally, I don't think grains are quite the villain people make them out to be, we just eat WAAAAY too much. If you were in a society pre-cereal cultivation, you would still eat things like wild rices from time to time, because it's in your environment and safe to eat. Would you eat it all the time? Probably not - probably only when food sources are getting a little slim.

Now, I do think dairy is taking the place of a lot of food people *should* be eating. You don't need anything that dairy can provide you - certainly not the calcium. I like to use pages that cite their sources, but I think this sums up dairy pretty well, and everything on here is easily verifiable.
