If you are new to the paleo diet, or just want to try something new, it can be a little hard to find foods that you can eat that aren’t simply fresh fruit and veggies. And what about when you are cooking? Or have a craving for something sweet? Sometimes it can feel like you are in a rut, eating the same few foods over and over again.
Thankfully, there are quite a few websites out there that cater to paleo foods as well as snacks and spices. If you want your meals all ready to go besides quick heating, there are pre-made meal options for you. However, if you want to do more traditional shopping, with snacks, and ingredients to make your meals, there are options for that as well.
Keep reading to find out which stores and meal services work best for you, and what each one provides.
Sometimes, having meals already made and ready for you to just throw them into a microwave or oven is the best way to go. Life is busy and finding time to go shopping and make your meals can be almost impossible. When you want life a little easier and want a little less to worry about, some websites deliver pre-made, paleo meals to your door, ready to heat up and eat.
Pre-Made Paleo does not only offer paleo foods, but also Whole30 approved meals. You can order individual meals if you would just like a few for emergencies or really busy days, but you can also set up meal plans. They have some pretty unique menus that include items like wild-caught sea bass or boar sausage.
For an additional bonus, they offer snacks, spices, and sauces, so you can get more than just meals delivered.
Another great benefit is that you can choose between fresh and frozen, in case you want to make your meal soon, or just want to stock up.
These meals, as the name suggests, are paleo, and come delivered frozen to your doorstep. Not only do they offer Paleo, but also foods for autoimmune issues (AIP). Unlike some other plans, you don’t need to make a subscription, or purchase a plan, though you do save money from doing that. Instead, you can buy anything from an individual meal to meal bundles, depending on your needs.
They are based in Florida, and work closely with farms and vendors in the area, but deliver across the United States. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals and they change pretty often due to their partnership with Paleo food creators, so you won’t always be stuck with the same food.
If you are looking for a service where you can order or pick up food like a grocery store and make meals at home, we have two options for that as well. It can be hard to find foods that fit your lifestyle, and it can be frustrating sometimes to bring something home and realize it wasn’t paleo-friendly at all.
Thrive Market is a great online grocery store that focuses on being up-front and open with their customers. They offer you the choice to pick foods based on your diet, lifestyle, and values. On top of food, they also have a large selection of household items, beauty products, and even items for babies.
One of their options to sort food is Paleo. Simply select the option and it will give you all the paleo-friendly options you could want. If you desire, you can even pick a company you enjoy. They sell meats, snacks, and shelf-stable products. Unfortunately, fresh produce is not yet available, so for any produce, you would have to use another service or go to a store.
There is a membership fee that comes with using Thrive Market, but they also present a lot of sales, coupons, and discounts, allowing you to easily make the monthly or yearly fees back.
Amazon is one of the largest online stores available. If you are a prime member, they offer a lot of food options under Amazon Fresh, including some that are paleo-friendly. You can simply search for paleo in the search bar and it will take you to foods that you can use. If you have specific brands you want to use as well, you can search for them. Amazon even has a physical store, Whole Foods, which also has paleo options. However, they do not always organize it to make it easy to find paleo products, so you will have to search. It is a great option to find fresh produce or a couple of items you need until your next big shopping trip.
