Ginger and Carrot Soup:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled, grated
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 pounds carrots (10 to 12), sliced
6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
Juice of 1 lime, plus lime wedges for garnish, optional
1 cup plain yogurt (not nonfat)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Warm oil in a pot over medium heat. Add onion; sauté until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Add ginger and garlic; sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
2. Raise heat to medium-high; stir in carrots. Pour broth into pot, cover and bring to a simmer. Remove cover, reduce heat to medium to maintain a simmer and cook until carrots are very tender, about 25 minutes. Remove soup from heat and let cool slightly.
3. Working in batches, purée soup in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl, cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
4. Just before serving, stir in lime juice and yogurt. Season with salt and pepper. Serve chilled, garnished with lime wedges, if desired.

The Paleo focus on meat and animal products as the core of a healthy diet isn’t very vegetarian-friendly. But after learning about the great health benefits their friends are seeing from a Paleo diet, many vegetarians start getting interested in evolutionary nutrition and want to know more.
For people who avoid meat purely from health concerns, the science behind Paleo is often enough for them to start eating animal food again. But others are vegetarians for ethical reasons, so the nutrient content of the food itself is irrelevant. Even after reading the Paleo responses to vegetarian ethical and environmental arguments, some people are unconvinced – and also really sick of people trying to persuade them to eat meat. But faced with the scientific evidence supporting an evolutionary diet, they start to wonder: would it be possible to eat a meat-free Paleo diet?
It’s important to take this kind of question seriously. Vegans and carnivores can both agree that modern food systems are unsustainable, and to develop a way of feeding everyone on the planet that doesn’t destroy our natural resources, we’re going to have to work together, not alienate each other. No, it’s not really possible to eat a vegetarian Paleo diet, but it is possible to improve a vegetarian diet with Paleo principles and evolutionary science. And it’s also possible for Paleo dieters to learn something from the vegetarian movement that might improve their health as well.
