The Pegan Diet is an inclusive approach to eating, taking the best parts of both vegan and Paleo and wrapping them up into one delicious package. It’s all about using nutritious real foods to create whole-body health, backed by science. Going Pegan has helped thousands regain their health and rediscover what it means to feel great—now it’s your turn. Since any dietary goal needs a good plan, I’ve partnered with Real Plans. They take care of the planning so you can take care of your health, one amazing meal at a time.

Food is medicine, plan to eat your way to better health OR Plan to feel great with Pegan meal plans
I’ve been through the struggle myself: After working long hours and crazy shifts during my rotations as a young doctor, convenience was king. My diet went downhill as I grabbed whatever I could between work responsibilities, being a father and husband, and trying to find time for myself. Unsurprisingly, my health went downhill, too.
But food impacts EVERYTHING, and when I began experiencing symptoms like memory loss, depression, and fatigue I knew I had to get my diet back on track. I had to start planning my meals ahead of time so I could set myself up for success and teach my kids the importance of food and its role in our well-being. This small shift had a huge impact on my health and the rest of my life, as I had more energy, a better mood, and the focus to take on the things that were important to me.
Healthy eating really isn’t hard or expensive, but it does take a little preparation. Now, that part is completely taken care of, thanks to Real Plans. Whether you’re dining solo or cooking for a family of six, they will create a weekly Pegan meal plan to simplify life and support your healthy eating goals—all for way less than your monthly coffee budget—so you can spend more time doing the things that elevate you while eliminating the stress of what to eat.
Not only does Real Plans plan your meals, it also learns your likes and dislikes, remembers your favorite recipes, creates easy-to-use shopping lists, and you can even have groceries delivered right to your doorstep. You can decide how many breakfasts, lunches, and dinners you want planned, so you can skip planning a dinner on your weekly date night out or that brunch you’re looking forward to next weekend.
Why wouldn’t we all take advantage of such an affordable, supportive tool when it comes to our health?
Why You Can’t Wait to Eat Pegan with Real Plans
If you’re wondering why the Pegan Diet is so special, it’s because it’s incredibly delicious AND good for you. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect to eat on your Pegan Real Plans meal plans.
A huge variety of colorful vegetables and fruits make up the foundation of Pegan, feeding your body an abundance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phyto-nutrients to thrive from the inside out. Then there are the satiating and delicious healthy fats that are part of every meal, helping to fight inflammation, supporting brain health, and so much more (think avocados, olive oil, coconut milk, walnuts, and wild-caught fish).
High-quality protein is another essential part of Pegan, which can be found in grass-fed and pasture-raised meats, poultry, and eggs along with the right amounts of low-starch legumes and whole grains. There are so many other tasty parts of Pegan, (like dark chocolate!), because this diet was designed to be inclusive, nourishing, and satisfying.
Pegan is more of a lifestyle than a diet, and once you feel the benefits in your body you’ll be a believer.
If any of these foods threw a red flag for you, because you either dislike them or have an allergy or sensitivity, Real Plans has got you covered. You’ll have the option to remove specific ingredients from your plan and include ones you love. This is totally customized meal planning at your fingertips. And if your schedule changes, not to worry—Real Plans works around your schedule and can make changes at the drop of a hat.
When you sit down to plan your meals for the week, Real Plans gives you an interactive daily timeline of what you’ll need to do in the kitchen. For example, if you need to marinate some meat or start something in the slow cooker, Real Plans tells you ahead of time. It makes everything super simple for even the newest cooks and Pegan eaters.
One of my favorite parts of Real Plans? You have the chance to try new kinds of foods and gain skills in the kitchen that you’ll use for the rest of your life, all while fueling your body with real food to promote a better brain, support a healthy metabolism, and live longer, stronger, and happier.
Save time planning with customized meal plans based on your diet, family size, and schedule. You can always adjust your plan more - the end result - a weekly plan of what to eat that is perfect for you.

Reals plans is the real deal—let them help you reach your goals
I can’t tell you how many patients I’ve seen struggle with eating well simply due to a lack of planning and preparation.
They want to eat well, they enjoy healthy foods, but their busy lives and schedules take over and they find themselves stuck in a cycle of poor food choices. Luckily, meal planning is one of those parts of your routine you can pass off to someone else.
But not all meal planning services are created equal. Some of them have a difficult user interface and take too much time to even get started with. Some are really expensive. Others take a one-sized-fits-all approach and you’re stuck with the ingredients they choose and left without guidance for other options. I’ve also seen many that claim to be health-focused and use things like canola oil, white flour, and lots of sweeteners.
That’s why Real Plans is the real deal.
It’s completely customizable meal planning at your fingertips for an affordable price, and they truly seem to think of everything.
When I saw how incredible their program is I knew it was something I wanted to provide to my community, which is why I shared all of my top Pegan recipes with them to use in your meal plans. A Pegan Diet subscription with Real Plans guarantees you’re eating all the right foods to elevate your health and avoiding those that will harm it.

Wishing you health and happiness,
