The Pegan Diet
How do you start?
Focus on the glycemic load of your diet.Â High quality protein, pasture raised chicken, wild fish, frass-fed meats, non-GMO tofu and fats from avocados (a family favorite), nuts (excluding peanuts), seeds (flax, chia, hemp, seame and pumpkin and for a tropical flare add unsweetened coconut.
Eat the RIGHT fats for the human body, not industrially created oils/fats (canola, sunflower, corn and soybean oil). Focus on omega-3 fats like this cultured oil https://www.zeroacre.com or oils from nuts, olives, avocados, and include naturally created saturated fats from grass-fed sustainably sourced animals!
Eat the Right plants.Â Fruits and vegetables to include (actually to make up 75% of your plate) should be non starchy and low glycemic like organic leafy greens or organic, local in season berries.
Avoid (at all cost) conventional dairy. Milk is for baby cows, not for humans. Try goat or sheep products, as a treat, and always buy organic.
Avoid Gluten (again at all cost).Â Period.
Reframe sweets with added sugars.Â This of sugar as an occasionally treat, use it sparingly.Â
