Craft & Tour Right now, CrossFit studios seem to proliferate faster than smoked meat and whiskey bars in Seattle. And hewing to a paleo diet is a central tenet of CrossFit culture—along with gut-wrenching workouts and speaking in abbreviations like WOD. 

But here’s the problem—eating paleo is hard. Not difficult as in the food isn’t good, but preparing food sans any grains, sugar, dairy, or processed food takes some serious planning. In other words, CrossFit folk will be pretty damn excited to hear that paleo food truck Outside the Box is officially open for business. 

Caterers and CrossFit devotees Charles Aguiling and Marizel Yuen hit the streets in July, and are busy building a regular schedule, which right now consists mainly of CrossFit studios. They’re also looking to branch out to other fitnesscentric facilities and maybe a few farmers markets, but the current schedule is up on the Outside the Box website. 

So far, says Aguiling, some of the most popular dishes are the pork carnitas on lettuce wraps and the sliders (well, large slider or modest-size burger) of grass-fed beef topped with bacon and served in an almond bun. A blackened bacon-wrapped prawn dish from opening week was also a big hit and is likely to appear again, says Yuen. 

Outside the Box had to halt its popular paleo meal delivery program for a few weeks to focus on the truck launch, but look for its return next week.
