10 paleo instagram foodies you need to follow

Need a little inspiration to spice up your Paleo meals? Just follow who I follow – these 10 rockstar Paleo Instagrammers. With a real food, paleo-inspired focus, their Instagram feeds will leave you drooling, hungry, amazed and of course, inspired!

Now, I’ll admit, I have a slight addiction to Instagram. As Facebook becomes inundated with advertisers I find myself cherishing the simplicity of photo. A photo that tells a story, motivates and makes me think…I can do that with cauliflower?!

Thankfully, many of these Instagrammers provide “behind-the-scenes” of how they did it. Because if you’re like me, you’ll want to know exactly how their food photos come out so darn spectacular. Oh yeah, lighting!

But there’s more…and these gals (and guy!) give the deets. Through their beautiful photos and narratives, you’ll also get to know their personalities and communities – which I’ve come to love.

As I say time and again, Paleo is about so much more than food, it’s a lifestyle. And these 10 Instagrammers, my personal foodie favs, will keep you walking (even skipping) along your own path to wellness.

1. GOEATYOURBEETS, by Trisha Hughes

First, you’ll be swooning over Trisha’s impressive photography. This girl’s got skills! But immediately after, you’ll be captivated by her wit, approachability and girlfriend bestie narrative. Trisha’s all about community, helping you simultaneously cook and photograph amazing food.

2. STUPIDEASYPALEO, by Steph Gaudreau

Steph dazzles and educates through her Instagram photos. She even wrote the book on it (true!). As a certified nutritionist and health nerd (yes, former science teacher), she keeps Paleo eating real and well, easy. She can also impressively lift very heavy things.

3. LEXISCLEANKITCHEN, by Alexis Kornblum

Lexi is a recipe (and social media) superstar whose got you covered whether you’re gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, sugar-free, egg-free or of course, Paleo. Her feed of tantalizing food is only eclipsed by the smattering of adorable, “aww”-worthy puppy shots.

7. PALEOFOODIES, by Alison Sims

Alison created Paleo Foodies as a way to showcase the creme de la creme of Paleo recipes and dining. But this Aussie gal is a kindred spirit – one who believes that healthy eating shouldn’t limit you to your Paleo-fied kitchen. She proves it is possible to eat healthy, eating out.
