Seeing amazing Paleo-inspired meals on my IG feed has sparked my interest in every way. The trendy diet cuts out refined sugar, processed foods and dairy but leaves plenty of earthy options to choose from. Check out these seven Instagram accounts for some serious #foodspiration. Whether you’re considering going Paleo or this is the first you’ve heard of it, these accounts will have you cooking up some great food and enjoying treats as good as Patti’s pies (but healthier for you).

  1. Vanessa Barajas

    Author of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind, Vanessa Barajas, was a major inspiration in my decision to go Paleo. Her Instagram basically gives me life. The recipes remind me that there is, indeed, life beyond brownies and bread.

  2. NomNomPaleo

    An award-winning blog and app, you can’t go wrong using Michelle Tam’s IG for some Paleo meal inspiration.

  3. Cait’s Plate

    Cait’s Plate is not a Paleo account but Cait posts beautiful photos of very healthy meals, that are sure to entice! I wish I could make a smoothie bowl that looks half as good as hers.

  4. Lumadeline

    Madeline Lu is the best at making healthy look outrageously beautiful. See for yourself, you won’t regret it.

    Hello! It's @meljoulwan with recipe to help answer the timeless question: tacos or nachos?! This recipe combines the best of tacos and nachos while ditching the soy, sugar, and grains hidden in most commercial taco seasonings. It’s impossible to argue and stuff plantains into your mouth at the same time, so let’s just declare a peace treaty between tacos and nachos. PLANTAIN NACHOS FROM WELL FED 2 Serves 2-4 | Prep 20 minutes | Cook 30 minutes PLANTAINS: 2 green plantains (they MUST be GREEN) 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted TACO MEAT: 2 teaspoons coconut oil 1/2 medium onion, minced (about 1/2 cup) 3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon) 2 tablespoons chili powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 pound ground beef 2 tablespoons tomato paste 1/2 cup Whole30 compliant chicken broth (or water) 2 teaspoons cider vinegar GARNISH: minced scallions, jalapeño slices, diced avocado, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, fresh lime juice DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350F. Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Peel the plantains and use a mandoline slicer on its thinnest setting to make plantain coins. Toss the slices and the coconut oil in a large bowl. Use four coins to make each "tortilla:” Lay them flat on baking sheet with edges slightly overlapping; sprinkle with salt. Bake 25-30 minutes until crisp & starting to brown. Meanwhile… Heat coconut oil in a non-stick skillet over medium, 2 minutes. Add onion and cook until soft, 7-10 minutes. Mix the garlic, chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, cayenne, and salt, then add to onions. Crumble the ground beef into pan and cook, breaking up clumps, about 5 minutes. Push meat to the side & drop in tomato paste; fry 3 minutes. Add broth and vinegar; stir. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and cook, uncovered, 10 minutes. Pile meat on top of plantain chips & top with garnishes. #whole30 #whole30recipes #wellfed #wellfed2 For more Whole30 recipes, find me on Instagram/Twitter at @meljoulwan &… or my Whole30 approved cookbooks Well Fed & Well Fed 2 (

    The Whole30 program is a diet that asks you to cut sugar, grains, dairy and legumes and other “gut-disrupting” foods from your life for 30 days. Because this program is so similar to the Paleo diet, this is a great place to go for recipes and tips.

  6. Whole Foods

    I love Whole Foods. I know they’re overpriced, but I love it anyway. According to their IG bio, they hope to “inspire excitement around eating healthy,” and I confidently can say their photos do just that!

    story is an amazing one. She grew up eating processed foods but found out in adulthood that two of her top allergens were gluten and dairy. She had to change everything she knew about cooking. Check out her IG posts and her blog.
