Nom Nom Paleo

If the Appstore is any indication, Paleo is a hugely popular diet trend right now. I counted 35 iPad apps on the subject, not including magazines. Dedicated to eating as our ancestors did during the Paleolithic era, this eating plan focuses on hunter/gatherer-style foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, free-range meat and poultry, fish and seafood plus seeds, nuts and oils.

Paleo goes by a host of other names, including the caveman, primal and ancestral diets. The goal is the same for all: cut out inflammatory foods created by the agricultural revolution, like dairy, legumes, cereal grains, processed foods and refined sugars. The payoff? Consistent energy levels, a healthier body and reducing the risk of chronic health problems like heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

The Appstore may have a ton of apps to choose from, but if you’re interested in going Paleo you’re going to need solid advice from experts and delicious recipes to keep you going. Keep reading for the best apps to help you go primal.
