Jenna Zoe sets out to mix the best of vegan and paleo to create great recipes for you

With so many diets out there, it’s near impossible for any of us to decide how to eat. When you consider that proponents of every eating style claim their way is the best, the key to vitality and a lean physique, it’s easy for us to try our hand at several of them, only to discover that they don’t work for us. This often leaves us frustrated rather than empowered and confident in our own ability to make the best choices for ourselves.

What is Vegan Paleo?

I became vegan almost overnight on June 1st, 2009. Whilst I felt almost immediately better for it, it wasn’t always upwards from there. There are infinite ways a vegan diet can look, and every time I read someone else’s opinion on how to do it ‘right’, I tried it their way. I tried a macrobiotic diet and ate more grains and beans, I attempted a high-protein diet with the help of faux meats and soy cheeses, I believed the claims that you could eat whatever you wanted as long as it was vegan and still feel fantastic. None of these left me feeling my best.

At the same time, I was studying to become a nutritionist and reading a lot about the paleo diet, which proposes eating only foods the cavemen ate for ultimate health. It recommends devising a dietary regime that includes whole, unprocessed foods, lean meats and low-carb foods that are high in fibre, potassium and healthy fats; and excludes grains, legumes, potatoes, dairy products, refined sugars and oils, and salt. Yet, it is still very possible on this plan to feast on bacon and dip your spoon into the almond butter jar with abandon, and wonder why your digestion isn’t at its best, or that you aren’t losing weight.
