OK, so there are about a thousand fancy diets out there, and we can’t keep any of them straight. (Keto who? Whole what? Are we ever going to get to eat dessert again?) But at least the Pegan diet has a handy built-in acronym—it’s a combination of Paleo (that means low-carb, high-protein) and vegan (lean meats are actually OK, as long as they’re high-quality; but dairy is verboten). But in case you still can’t keep all that straight, we’ve outlined a full week of meals (that’s breakfast, lunch and dinner) for you. Go forth and diet!
How to Eat Pegan for Every Meal This Week
Monday Breakfast: Baked Eggs And Zoodles With Avocado
Green eggs, hold the ham.
Wednesday Breakfast: One-pan Eggs With Asparagus And Roasted Tomatoes
Because the last thing you need on a hump day morning is a sink full of dirty dishes.
Wednesday Dinner: Cauliflower Paleo Gnocchi
We don’t know how it’s possible to make something this delicious with only two ingredients, but we’re going with it.
Thursday Breakfast: Rainbow Coconut Smoothie Bowls
The best way to feel like you’re on a tropical vacation on a random Thursday morning.
Sunday Dinner: Kohlrabi Spaghetti With Kale-mushroom Bolognese
The Pegan diet allows for meat occasionally; we like to include it in recipes that also have plenty of fresh veggies, like this one from Coterie member Ali Maffucci.
