Paleo Diet Resources

Looking to dive deep into the paleo diet? We’ve been waiting for you! Here we’ve compiled some of the best resources, products, blogs, websites, and recipes that the paleo diet has to offer.

What Is The Paleo Diet?

The paleo diet is a framework for dieting and eating based on the food sources and eating habits of our paleolithic ancestors who evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to eat meats, eggs, vegetables, fruits, and nuts, and less of the processed, sugary foods we find on most modern Standard American Diets (or, as we like to call them, SADs).

Foods you can eat on the paleo diet:

Meats, eggs, vegetables, fruits, and nuts.

Foods you can’t eat on the paleo diet:

Everything else. Mostly grains, dairy,  processed foods, unnatural sugars, and legumes.

We have a complete set of paleo diet food list and resources available here.

Are Legumes Paleo?

First of all, what the hell are legumes? No one seems to know. I mean, even a quick search of Google will tell you this (and we quote):


  1. A leguminous plant.
  2. A seed, pod, or other edible part of a leguminous plant used as food.

Thanks for the help, Google! Yeah, right. That’s like saying the paleo diet is simply a diet of food that’s paleo. While technically true, it’s not helpful at all.

What Are Legumes?

Here’s what legumes really are. Legumes are the dried seeds found within pods that hang from plants.

You might not be able to think of a ton of plants that fall into that category off the top of your head, so here’s an almost complete list of legumes:

  • Alfalfa
  • Clover
  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Lupins
  • Soy
  • Carob
  • Mesquite
  • Beans
  • Peanuts (a legume whose pod does not split open)
Legumes are commonly referred to as “pods” as well because of the type of food they are found in. But while many legumes may be considered pods, not all pods are legumes, so be careful not to confuse the two terms.

CrossFit Paleo Information

Be careful with CrossFit. It’s relatively easy to get “certified” and some coaches are more interested in making you hurt than actually pushing your body to its limits in a healthy way. Be smart, know your body, and if you push past pain into discomfort, slow down – there’s no need to hurt yourself.
