So, you want to change your diet for insert-reason-here. You’re vegetarian friend got great results from cutting out meat, and your vegan friend’s skin has never looked better. But your paleo friend is now lean and looking like a super athlete, and you’re left thinking: I want all of that! How is one to choose?

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO (FEBRUARY 2, 2017, Primal Blueprint Publishing) is spearheading a new movement in the world of food. The foodie landscape in one where dietary groups have a cult-like following and affinity for their particular eating principles. But like life, diet isn’t always that cut and dry. We go through phases where sometimes, we crave meat and lots of it. Sometimes, we can’t stomach it. Sometimes, we just want to eat plants and lots of them.

How is one to choose? What if you like the concept of eating like our ancestors but don’t really have a taste for meat most of the time? What if you don’t want to go completely vegetarian, but you like the idea of eating fewer animal products?  Read how Lauren “accidentally,” wrote a cookbook to satisfy all those inbetweeners…

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO

Making her debut on the cookbook scene, Lauren Lobley, former pastry chef and head baker to Food Network star, Duff Goldman, gave up her pastries for healthy food almost ten years ago. For the first 25 years of her life, she was a carnivore. But things changed, and at times she has been a vegan, vegetarian, lacto-ovo, pescatarian, paleo, and/or some combination of all of them. After years of testing, she has found her sweet spot:  Vegetarian Paleo.

 

FACTS:

  • Eating for health and longevity: there were almost 8 million vegetarians in the US in 2008, with another almost 23 million Americans following a vegetarian “inclined” diet.” And according to an article in Shape Magazine last year, if anyone was going to try a new diet, it was going to be the Paleo one.
  • But for those who are skating the line between paleo and vegetarian – and even vegan – there is good news:  You can have it all. And here’s a bonus: most experts agree that the single best thing you can do to ensure you live a longer, healthier life is to eat a more plant-based diet. We already spend about $300 billion a year on pharmaceutical drugs to treat diseases that are mostly preventable through diet. Something has to give.

“You have a responsibility to try and be as healthy as possible. I decided to pick the diet (a plant-based diet) that I thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival. You have to make a conscious decision to change for your own well-being, and that of your family and your country.” – President Bill Clinton

In THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO, Lauren has compiled her favorite vegetarian paleo recipes into one user-friendly, something-for-everyone cookbook. Lauren takes a carnivore’s approach to plant-based eating. By being mindful of textures, layers of flavor, colors, and nutrition in every concoction, the recipes in this book are designed to satisfy every palate, whether they prefer their meals with or without meat.

The desserts are refined sugar free (and in most cases, naturally sweetened, like the almond butter banana cheesecake), the appetizers trick the palate with their clever use of nuts and plant-based milk to feign a creamy texture (like the warm spinach and artichoke dip – to die for), and the main meals carefully build upon an array of vegetables and sauces to leave everyone full and satiated (like the butternut squash lasagna).

THE ACCIDENTAL PALEO is culinary fun for the whole family, and a sure fire way to ensure the health and longevity of you and your loved ones. A feast for the eyes and the taste buds, get ready to fall in love with plant-based eating like you never imagined you would. And rejoice in the fabulous fact that when it comes to being vegetarian or paleo, you don’t to choose. You can have it both ways.

Lauren Lobley Bio:

Lauren Lobley is a Canadian born and raised former pastry chef turned healthy chef. Together with her husband, Ted, and 22-month-old daughter, Madison Grace, they run and operate a yoga studio in Malibu, California, where Lauren provides the freshly baked vegan gluten-free granola, and Ted teaches the best class on this side of Malibu.

After culinary school, she joined the ranks and worked her way up as head baker to celebrity chef and Food Network star, Duff Goldman, churning out thousands of cakes a week at his West Hollywood location. Realizing how terrible she felt by consuming so much gluten, dairy, and sugar, Lauren began recipe testing with one goal in mind: to make healthy food taste good. She blogged about her experience on her website, Delectable You, and began featuring her recipes both on that site and on her increasingly popular YouTube channel.
