    I do love that so many bloggers are trying to hit the “pegan” mark, however so many of the pegan recipes I am seeing out there are not free of eggs, or fish so they are more pescatarian or another vegetarian off shoot rather than being actually vegan.

      Yes the pegan diet is more flexible than the vegan diet. The upside is that it is more nutritionally complete than a vegan diet… and also removes gluten/grains from the diet which may improve your energy levels, focus and decrease inflammation in the body.

    While these recipes are nutritious, healthy, and delicious looking, most are not even close to being vegan. They aren’t even vegetarian. Pescatarian , yes. So to say that these are Pegan and therefore Paleo AND Vegan is not only completely erroneous but also very misleading. For vegans looking for recipes that are actually Paleo AND Vegan ( or Pegan) this is really dissapointing and frustrating. And I’m saying this as someone who is not Vegan.

      I meant to add that I do love that these recipes are dairy free, gluten free, and meat/poultru free. And thanks for the links.
