The Pegan Diet: Do or don't ?
Pegan is the new trend ! Instagram feeds are drowning under posts containing #pegan.
Where did it come from?
This new new diet is the result of a combination between the paleo diet and the vegan.
A quick reminder :
Be aware that although it is called a 'diet', this is not about losing weight but about changing dietary habits.
It would offer several health benefits (by reducing the risk of diabetes, cholesterol or cardiovascular disease).
The pegan diet : how does it works ?
The Pegan diet is based on the paleo diet paired with some vegan precepts.
It contains 75% of plants and 25% of animal protein. It bans every dairy products and transformed products.
It also insists on the use of high quality products ; preferably organic or from sustainable and seasonal agriculture !
Foods to avoid...
We like the Pegan diet : it is not very different from the flexitarian diet (it is a flexible vegetarian diet, i.e. it is possible to eat meat or fish occasionally).
And above all, it is environmentally friendly and healthy!
