Inspired by my sister Stephanie aka The Loudmouth’s plan.

I’ve been wanting to go paleo and/or vegan for a while, but I find that my schedule and personal taste calls for something different. First of all, I haven’t eaten meat other than fish for over a year, and I just started eating fish again over the summer, so a normal Paleo diet is out the window. Secondly, dairy makes my body feel terrible in all sorts of ways, but eggs make me feel good, so I’m also not ready to go Vegan.
… So why not create my own? Yes, good idea. Let’s do it!
I bring you *drum roll please*… THE PALEO”ISH”-PESCATARIAN PLAN!
If you’re a vegetarian, pescatarian or just an homnivore looking to adopt a healthier eating plan, here it is. The Paleo”ish”-Pescatarian Plan, which is really just a clean eating plan with very minimal animal products. (Animal products consumed should be raised in a clean and ethical manner.)
This plan doesn’t include ANYTHING processed, artificial, or high in saturated fats. It is simple, healthy, and can be combined with endless organic herbs and spices to create the tastiest and most creative (or simple) meals.
This chart involves some of the things you should definitely eat on the plan, but what you SHOULDN’T eat is this: dairy, processed grains & gluten, mammals and poultry, or anything else processed or artificial, including flavors, dyes, and sweeteners.
Honey or maple syrup is fine on occasion, but this plan is really concentrated on a high-protein and fiber intake, and very low on sugar.
This plan will give you energy, and make for a healthy body and soul. I also recommend drinking at least 64 ounces of water a day, and laying off the alcohol. 1 - 2 cups of coffee a day is beneficial, but any more than that is actually harmful to your health. If you need a bit more spunk after your morning cup of joe, try taking a brisk walk or drink a cup of caffeinated tea, such as Earl Gray or Yerba Mate.
So here it is… the plan:
- 3 - 4 proteins (such as 2 eggs, 6 oz fish, 2 tbsp nuts/seeds)
- 2 - 3 fruits (small whole fruit or 1/2 cup is a sufficient serving)
- ENDLESS vegetable options (limit sweet potatoes to 1 serving/day)
- 1 - 2 servings healthy fat
- 1 - 2 optional snacks (such as 1 cup popcorn or 2 tbsp trail mix)
- At least 64 ounces water daily
- Supplements (Vegans, vegetarians, and vegetarians that sometimes eat fish are known to be low in B vitamins and Magnesium)
