When Henry Ford adopted the assembly line as a process for making automobiles, little did he know he was contributing to the growth of your waistline. Cars replaced horse-drawn buggies, and pizza chains and other restaurants now use vehicles to deliver food to your front door. Unfortunately, most delivery food is less than healthy. Much of it certainly doesn’t qualify as paleo-friendly. Lately though, in the United States and other countries, paleo meal delivery services have become commonplace.
This is a simple way to have a virtual paleo chef cooking for you. You go online, place your order, either one-time orders or weekly and monthly deliveries, and you simplify the paleo eating process. Here are a few of the major paleo delivery services in the United States, and a summary of the services they offer.
This moderately priced paleo meal delivery service can be found in all 50 US states, Canada and Puerto Rico. They specialize in organic vegetables, locally sourced food and grass-fed beef. This company was started by chef and author Richard Bradford, who wrote the New York Times bestseller The Whole30. Expect strict adherence to paleo guidelines. All vegetables are 100% organic.

Delivering to all the 50 states in the US, Trifecta Nutrition provides paleo-friendly foods that are non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, organic and wonderfully tasty. Their products are moderately priced and guaranteed 100% organic. Dr. Loren Cordain, founder of The Paleo Diet, has teamed up with Trifecta Nutrition, so you know what you are getting is 100% paleo-friendly. A couple of the reasons Trifecta Nutrition is so popular in the paleo community is because they always offer free nationwide delivery with every meal plan, and you can also order in bulk quantities.
Paleo on The Go
These meal plans are moderately priced and available to all of 50 US states as well as Puerto Rico. Certified Paleo-Friendly and Certified Paleo, Paleo On The Go has a kitchen that is 100% gluten-free. They provide AIP (autoimmune protocol) meals, grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, legume-free, grass-fed, pasture-raised and organic options.
While all of these options are paleo friendly, it is important to note that you still have to do your diligence to ensure that what you are ordering is truly paleo friendly. For example, some of the above sites offer quinoa, oatmeal, and brown rice. While these things are considered whole and healthy they are not paleo.
