Whether you're an avid CrossFitter, an occasional gym-goer, or someone just trying to reduce their pizza intake, you've likely heard of the Paleo diet. And for good reason. The Paleo plan is designed to help you clean up your diet by eliminating processed foods (the chips and cookies that aren’t on your grocery list but somehow get tossed into the cart) and putting the focus back on real, whole foods. We're talking about the kind of grub our early ancestors ate when hunting and gathering was their only option: meats and vegetables plus some fruits.

If you're ready to give yourself a little (or a long) break from refined sugar, refined carbs, legumes, and dairy, the Paleo diet is a good place to start. Intrigued? We're sharing tips to get you started, items to stock in your pantry, and the best Paleo recipes.
