Vegetarian Paleo...

6 posts in this topic

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.

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
