Plant-Based Paleo - Protein-Rich Vegan Recipes for Well-Being & Vitality
Sources say that before our ancestors learned to hunt, they ate a raw diet comprised of what they could gather in the wilderness. The plant-based diet gave us everything we needed then, and it does now! Plant proteins are easier for the body to absorb than animal proteins. A plant-based diet provides 10-15% of calories from protein, a safe intake for a healthy human.
When eating a raw diet, nuts, sprouts, seeds, sprouted grains and leafy greens are examples of foods that are especially protein-rich. Recommended calcium intake is more healthfully achieved by eating leafy green vegetables like kale, and other calcium rich non-dairy foods like broccoli, seaweed, sesame seeds, and sprouted quinoa. Plants absorb calcium from soil; animals eat these plants to satisfy their hunger and nutrient needs.
A plant-based diet goes straight to the source for healthy, easily absorbed calcium and much more. Jenna has created recipes to be enjoyed at any time of the day.
