Is it possible to be both paleo and vegan? Are there any similarities between paleo and vegan that allow you to do both at the same time?
One of the numerous thoughts I have about diet and lifestyle is sometimes wondering did cavemen live vegan? In this episode of The Mental Minute, I tried to find out what are the similarities between paleo and vegan, ultimately answering the question if you can you live both paleo and vegan.

Eat Like A Bear Diet Plan
I'll just go ahead and ask the question, "why should you be an omnivore"? This really stems from the thought that we should let our environment determine our diet.
The commonality we all share, is that we want to get the most nutrition from the foods that we eat. It doesn't matter if you're vegan, or vegetarian, or paleo, pescatarian, the way that you get the most vitamins and minerals from the foods that you ingest, is through good gut health and digestion.
Going forward, I want you to try to model your nutrition plan around the bear. Bears are omnivores, but, they're mostly vegetarian. They're also adaptable creatures, based on their surroundings. Polar bears eat seals. Panda bears eat mostly bamboo. North American Nordic bears eat pretty much just anything ... berries, fruits, nuts, mushrooms. But, they also eat meat, as well. Again, based on their surroundings.
Healthy Diet Lifestyle Change
Why is it that when people live a certain lifestyle, a general assumption that everyone should be that way follows? Now the title of this podcast speaks to vegans, but in today's episode, I actually breakdown why it's not really important what you eat, but what your body thinks is important to you.
In true digestive fashion, the body doesn't really care what label you put on the foods you I'm sure you've had a conversation with someone before about what's the best diet or meal plan. If you have, this episode is definitely a must. Click the link to listen or download.
