    I have not read the book, does the blue print address vegeterians, or have a vegeterian option??

    Not really~ if you regularly eat eggs and cheese, you might be able to squeak by, but there really isn't support here for non-meat eaters. Basically, the grains/legumes/soy that vegetarians depend on for their protein needs are not used for primal eating. Are you willing to convert, at least eat fish?

    I'm so sick of this vegetarian phobia. Even Ellen Ashwipe over on her paleo-raw-vegan blog says that she's walked away from shunning CAFO meat diapers because all the available research the Denise Minger has painstakingly scrimshawed onto the backs of her eyelids explains that yer all a bunch of doodoo lovin' surf muppets.

    Dang, it sure is a good thing that I can question all the CW around here.

    Yes, there are people who do it in a vegetarian way. It would not be possible to do it vegan, but vegetarian, yes.

    You will need eggs and dairy -- and if you feel comfortable eating fish (technically not vegetarian), then it will likely be even more successful because it gives you fish, a bone broth option, as well as caviar, etc.

    But yes, technically, it can be done.

    If you're doing it for health reasons, you need to some more reading.

    If you're doing it for ethical reasons, then I wish you the best of luck, but don't kid yourself as you are trading optimal health for your morals. That may be admirable depending on your position, but it is a sacrifice.

    You may find this a useful place to start...

    This.

    If you can eat eggs and dairy, you could probably do it. Including fish would be even better.

    Vegan? Yeah, that's not going to work. There are just some things that you can only get from animal sources.

    I respectfully disagree, as I have eaten a whole foods plant based diet for over 30 years.
    I am not trying to tell anyone what to eat (or not eat), but just thought it only fair to interject here with some first hand experience from the other side of the coin.

    Peace - jv
