It seems someone, somewhere decided that there simply aren’t enough diets to pick from. And since variety is the spice of life, we welcome yet another diet into our vocabulary (but not necessarily onto our plates): the Pegan diet, the love child of the vegan and Paleo diets. Here is the Pegan diet explained.
What You CAN Eat
The good news: you do get to eat.
First, you can have unlimited fruits and veggies, so stock up on that summer produce.
Finally, Paleo gets its say with a modest amount of meat and eggs.
So far, Pegan doesn’t look so bad.
What You CANNOT Eat
Just because you’re combining two diets doesn’t mean you get to neglect all of the rules.
Overall, the Pegan diet is all about compromise, and it seems like a decent balance between its rather restrictive parents. Still, Pegan is no rebel child. The whole no sugar thing is a real downer, and with summer starting, good luck convincing me to give up ice cream. So welcome to the world, Pegan, but I think I’ll stick with the no-diet plan.
