On this week’s episode, we welcome Lauren Lobley of Delectable You, author of The Accidental Paleo. Lauren is here to tell us all about her vegetarian and mostly plant-based approach to the Paleo diet and unpack some of the contents of her book and dietary philosophy. In our discussion, we look back on Lauren’s history with food and how she decided on the title The Accidental Paleo. We then go on to talk about the intersection of vegetarianism and the Paleo diet and how dietary choices are so individual that it is really up to a person to find the right balance for themselves through research and experimentation. Lauren also tells us about her love for desserts and how she approaches this in the book and in her life. The book is not so much instructive and normative as an offering of supplementary and complementary ideas for a more rounded Paleo lifestyle. For all this and more, be sure to tune in!
