Warshaw’s April Washington Post Nutrition Q&A column focused on the whether following a paleo vegetarian eating plan is within the realm of possibility. Conclusion? Not easily. These diets have extremely different foci – one excluding meat and other animal-based protein foods. The other? Plenty of animal based protein sources with the exclusion of grains and legumes. The food groups in sync – fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. This eating plan on a long term basis could set someone up for nutritional deficiencies…that is if they could follow it long term.
