It’s no secret we live, breathe, and think all kinds of food here at Atlanta Eats, but every now and then it’s good to hit reset and nourish your body with some good-for-you food. The paleo diet is a new diet that has become popular in recent years, filled with a menu of lean meats, veggies, nuts, seeds, fish, and fruits, or foods that may have been eaten during the Paleolithic era through hunting and gathering. Whether or not the science is sound is up for debate, but if it’s something you want to try, here are a few resources for you to do so in Atlanta.
