Have you ever aimlessly wandered around a supermarket, trying to figure out what you need, only to be tempted by countless treats and unhealthy processed foods? And when you’re on a strict
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that shopping and cooking never were a strong point of mine. Half of my bags would be filled with stuff I didn’t need, and when I got home, I’d realize that there were loads of things that my diet didn’t allow.
Creating grocery lists did help, but with limited cooking skills, I really struggled to get all the right ingredients and produce for
Fortunately, someone introduced me to meal delivery services, and I have to say, they have made my life so much easier.
In this post, I want to show you some of the ones we have tested over the past year.
Our Top Paleo Meal Delivery Services (2020 Updated)
#1 Sun Basket
#2 Green Chef
#3 Cleaneats Meal Prep
#4 Paleo On The Go Real Food Delivered
#5 Eatology Paleo Zone
1. Sun Basket
The reason I have picked this for the top of the list is mainly down to the very large selection
What’s great about Sun Basket's meal delivery service is that they don’t just cover paleo meals. If you fancy a vegetarian or even vegan dish for a change, then there are plenty of options. When you're on a paleo diet or a
There is a lot of emphasis on fresh, local, and whole foods organic ingredients, which is one of the features that makes this company stand out from the rest.
Now, I have to say that this is an option for people who don’t mind preparing the food, as it isn’t a simple reheat service.
You receive a paleo meal delivery package with fresh ingredients and produce

2. Green Chef
This is a favorite with people who really want to
I don’t think they have the largest selection of paleo meals on this list, but I’ve never failed to find something that I really liked the sound and sight of.
If you try this paleo service, then I recommend eating the coconut crusted chicken with a side of sweet potato.
While Green Chef delivers all the ingredients pre-measured, you’ll still need to do a bit of cooking. But I have found that it rarely takes more than 20 to 30 minutes.

3. Clean Eats Meal Prep
As many reviewers online have commented, you will struggle to run out of new things to try out.
I tend to order my meals in bulk at least 3 weeks in advance, as it just makes it easier for me to plan, and of course, there are good discounts.
What a lot of people also love about the Clean Eats meal delivery service is that you can buy from a kids menu with smaller portions, which is great to help families. This makes meal prep at home easier while making sure that your family is eating
The only downside for some people is that the meals are delivered in temperature controlled packaging but not frozen. Ideally, if you plan to buy in bulk, you want to be there at the time of delivery to place the order straight in your freezer.
4. Paleo On The Go
This is another great paleo meal delivery service that I like to use when I run out of ready prepared paleo meals. Generally, I receive orders within 2 days, but you can also take advantage of the overnight shipping at an extra cost.
The paleo meals are constantly changing, and I found several comments from people who said that after 3 months of trying it, they hadn’t had the same meal twice.
Definitely worth a try and if you like the meals, then try to upgrade to a subscription plan for added convenience.
While all the animal products are sourced from farms where they were humanely raised without hormone and antibiotic treatments, I would still like to see some more organic options as well.
And if you're a strict vegan and don't eat animal products at all, then this one's not for you.
This company claims to have one of the most frequently changing menus, and you can definitely see that
It’s great if you really want to
Anyway, all the food from Etology Paleo Zone is prepared by trained chefs, and there is quite a large selection of different meals for the day.
The pricing system is very simple; a medium-size meal costs $10.50 and a large one $12.75
But you can save a good bit by choosing a meal delivery subscription or bulk order.
Personally, I’m a sucker for images when it comes to choosing my meals and their ingredients, but with Eatology, it’s all about presenting the ingredients along with nutrition info on the food. Still, it’s a good and reliable service if you're on a paleo diet or just want to eat simple, healthy meals.
6. Factor 75
Next up is a service I know quite a few people use on a regular basis where the main focus is on entrees and a few desserts you can eat while on a strict paleo diet or are on a weight loss journey.
If you’re very strict with your paleo diet, then you might find that the weekly menu options are a bit limited when compared to the other options above.
7. Kettle Bell Kitchen
This is one of the meal delivery services
All the meals are prepared by trained chefs, and there are quite a few paleo diet options to choose from.
There is a really good focus on getting the nutritional balance right, and many online reviews, even from performance athletes said they were very happy with the macro balance.
Several users report how the menu has helped with with their weight loss journey.
While it’s great that you can pick your preferred meals for your physical training goals, you don’t have a huge amount of say about what you get delivered. There was one week where two of my deliveries had butternut squash, which for some reason I just don’t like.
Ready-Made vs Ready To Cook
What you’ve seen on the above list is two types of meal delivery services.
Firstly, there is a ready-made service, where
Within 5 minutes, your food will be ready for eating.
Secondly, there is a ready to cook service, where you receive all the ingredients pre-measured, including all the herbs, spice, and produce,
You still have to do some prep work and cooking, but
There’s obviously a price difference to consider, but which option works best for you will depend on whether you have the time to cook.
Are Paleo Frozen Meals Healthy?
Yes, paleo frozen meals are healthy, but I generally stay away from them (1).
The freezing process can break down a lot of the flavors and texture, which ultimately makes for not such a nice experience.
However, when you bulk order from these delivery services and then freeze
Are meal subscription services worth it?
Are meal kits cheaper than buying groceries?
Which Service Should You Try Out?
I always recommend Sun Basket to my family, friends, and clients. It’s also one of the paleo meal delivery services I use the most because it’s got so many different delicious meals to choose from.
I’ve never been disappointed because I have so much input in what I want for different meals, whether you're strictly on a paleo diet, keto or anything else you might fancy.
