Actually, there are many many foods and recipes that are both paleo AND vegan (Kale chips anyone??!) . Start with a website, like www.elanaspantry..com, that categorizes recipes by dietary preference and you will be pleasantly surprised. For example, Both "diets" focus on whole foods without dairy
Wow, that's a tough one because paleo and veg are almost opposite in a way. My husband is not veg, but that's how I cook so that's how he eats at home. Once in a while I'll cook a piece of fish or bring home some cooked chicken from work for him, and I do buy him eggs and milk; but from what I've read the paleo diet features meat. I think I'd have to let my husband cook his own. Good luck, ~Pam
On a side note, I just read an article that says the caveman may have been more vegetarian than paleo's think. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2013/05 /31/187559098/grass-it-s-what-s-for-di nner-3-5-million-years-ago

It's tough. I cooked for an omnivore for years and I am a vegan. I'm not too familiar with the paleo diet, but what I did was make vegan meals and add a meat protein and or cheese and or eggs for my husband.

I've got friends who have gone vegan and swear that they feel so much better. I'm trying to go vegetarian. I'm married to a man who is currently on the paleo diet. I'd like to hear how others have fared with two different philosophies at meal time.
