This version of our plant-based meal plan is like a veg-friendly version of Paleo, if you will since it is catered to those that don’t eat grains. Except our diet includes NO animal products and instead we include high-protein beans and legumes whereas Paleo doesn’t. This plan isn’t about dieting, but insted for those with digestive struggles or severe grain intolerance issues. People with compromised digestion, blood sugar problems, or even celiac disease may find it helpful to eliminate grains from the diet at first, due to how they can affect digestion and raise the glycemic index.
Don’t get us wrong; whole grrains are incredibly healthy for most of us, but they contain starches that can be harder for the body to break down. They also contain a natural nutrient known as phytic acid, which can hinder digestion and absorption.Whatever you believe, experimenting with a whole foods, plant-based grain-free diet can help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. Foods to emphasize are nuts, beans, legumes, seeds, vegetables, fruits, and leafy greens. Foods like avocados, almond butter, tahini, kale, spinach, sweet potatoes, hemp seeds, and any fresh piece of produce are commonly enjoyed. Sounds pretty good, right?
