'Plant-based Paleo certainly delivers on its promise ... its recipes are interesting, healthy and tasty and will bring some variation to your meal time repertoire.' Handmade magazineSources 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 1015% 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.
