Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Snap Kitchen

Snap Kitchen

Snap Kitchen

Snap Kitchen serves most of the U.S., offering fully prepared breakfast, lunches, and dinners that have been curated by registered dietitians and chefs. Meal plans can be designed based on diet—paleo, keto, and vegetarian—or based on goals—building muscle, weight loss, and increasing energy. Snap Kitchen provides health tips on its ordering pages. Plus, the company is transparent about calories as well—the dishes in its paleo plan range from 320 to 560 calories.

Offering breakfast items like banana pancakes and dinners like chicken thighs with harvest vegetables and apples, consumers can reap the benefits of a paleo diet, including decreased inflammation, clearer skin, and weight loss, without missing food favorites. For those looking for quality food items, Snap Kitchen opts for organic ingredients when possible and is transparent in how they source their animal proteins. Customers can choose between a 12-meal or six-meal box. Larger boxes come out to $9.58 per meal, a steal for nutrient-packed, high-quality foods. 

Best Budget: Fresh n Lean

Fresh n Lean

Fresh n Lean

Fresh n Lean makes eating paleo easy, accessible, and affordable. Meals are prepared and delivered fresh—never frozen—and last for up to 10 days in the refrigerator. Customers can choose from one, two or three meals per day and can subscribe weekly or pick food a la carte. Every meal is gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free, and animal products are all antibiotic and hormone-free. For those with food allergies, up to three ingredients can be excluded from meals without a change in portion size. Plus, every ingredient used is free of GMOs.

While Fresh n Lean’s chefs plan menus based on seasonality, some sample dishes include roasted eggplant with cage-free chicken breast, maple-glazed sustainable salmon with spinach, cage-free turkey bolognese with carrot, and more. Paleo pescatarians will be especially pleased with the multiple fish options each week, a welcomed change from other delivery companies that only offer one or two fish choices. The paleo plan comes out to $12.33 per meal and includes shipping—a steal for locally-grown, organic, whole-food, nutrient-dense ingredients.

Best Variety: Pete's Paleo

Pete's Paleo

Pete's Paleo

What makes Pete’s Paleo special is that it's one of the few paleo-only meal delivery services. Founded by Le Cordon Bleu graduate Peter Servold, Pete’s Paleo offers already prepared meals featuring seasonal, organic produce and sustainably raised animal products. According to the company's website, each week there are over 20 kinds of vegetables prepared, meaning consumers will not only enjoy a range of flavors, but nutritional variety as well. Most meals on the menu contain five ounces of protein and seven ounces of veggies.

Aside from paleo lunches and dinners, consumers can order breakfast options if purchased in the “new you” bundle. Other program offerings include a 21-day sugar detox and a Pete’s Paleo Lite plan, featuring meals packed in smaller portions. Customers can choose between five, 10, and 14 meals per week or opt for a family plan offering five meals/four servings each. A 14-meal bundle ends up being priced at $14 per meal. 

Best for Couples: Sun Basket

Sun Basket

Sun Basket

For couples or families who love to cook, Sun Basket makes preparing fresh, organic meals incredibly easy by providing tasty recipes and pre-portioned ingredients. Consumers can choose boxes for one-, two- or four-person households.

Sun Basket is also a one-stop-shop when it comes to an entire day's worth of meals. Customers can order breakfast, lunch and snack items alongside their dinners, and the products curated by Sun Basket are top of the line. Companies featured on Sun Baskets site include Hu Kitchen, Pukka Teas, and Nana Joes Paleo Granola.

Unlike paleo-only services, Sun Basket lets customers mix and match their boxes so that a paleo eater and a vegan can dine in harmony. All meals use organic ingredients and wild-caught seafood recommended as Best Choice or Good Alternative by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® Program, and sample menu options include seared steaks with brussels sprouts and chipotle mustard vinaigrette, spiced pork chops with braised apple, cabbage, and cranberries, tomato Thai basil soup, and more. A bonus for anyone looking for green services: Sun Basket breaks down all elements of its packaging on its website, informing customers of how they can reuse or recycle packaging materials.

Most Eco Friendly: Green Chef

Green Chef

Green Chef

If variety and sustainability is important to you, Green Chef is a great option. The meal delivery service keeps things fresh by offering six new meal options every week, and with its Paleo plan, you can rest assured that every meal fits the paleo criteria.

Choose from meals like chicken with herb tahini sauce, a steak banh mi bowl, honey-mustard salmon, and more. Each recipe can be cooked in 30 minutes and makes two servings, perfect for couples or roommates. For two people, the Paleo plan starts at $12.99 per meal and one box contains three dinners—breakfast, lunch, dinner—with six meals/servings total.

Green Chef is a certified organic company that believes in the sustainability and traceability of the food sourced. In line with food sustainability, Green Chef is also conscious of its carbon footprint. Consumers can head to their website where all elements of their packaging are methodically broken down, informing customers of how they can reuse or recycle packaging materials—a bonus to anyone looking for green services.

Best for New Yorkers: Provenance Meals

Provenance Meals

Provenance Meals

For New Yorkers, Provenance Meals makes paleo living delicious, easy, and super nutritious. Founded by a certified holistic health coach, mother, and busy New Yorker, Provenance combats the idea that it's difficult to maintain a clean and nutritious diet every day.

Inspired by the founder’s mother and her Korean heritage, Provenance’s meals channel the simple, wholesome ingredients that are the foundation of the Korean diet: a variety of vegetables, minimal red meat, fish, long-simmered broths, and foods that are rich in gut-friendly probiotic bacteria. Meals feature organic and sustainably sourced ingredients, pasture-raised meats, eggs, and wild seafood, no GMOs, no pesticides, and no industrial oils.

There are a few targeted programs offered on the website such as cleanses and detoxes, but the Daily Essentials Program is the most comprehensive. At $68 a day, you'll receive three meals that you get to choose from a menu. Meals are delivered fully prepared, which is good news for those who prefer not to cook. There is no subscription required, and you can choose how many days worth of meals you want. 

Best for Meat Lovers: Paleo On The Go

Paleo On The Go

Paleo On The Go

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Paleo On The Go is experiencing minor delays. This may mean that some orders or subscriptions, particularly those placed on weekends, placed through Paleo On The Go may be shipped 24-48 hours later than expected. 

Paleo On The Go prides itself on using top-notch animal proteins. Consumers can head to their website and see where each animal has been sourced—something that isn't always the case with other delivery platforms. At Paleo On The Go, lamb and beef are 100% grass-fed. The company prides itself on this statistic because many products will say “grass-fed” but the animals may have been grain-finished. When this happens, it unfortunately eliminates all of the nutritional benefits of grass-fed animals such as higher iron and essential fatty acid content.

When it comes to produce, Paleo On The Go follows the Environmental Working Group’s Clean Fifteen/Dirty Dozen list. This means it sources produce from the “Dirty Dozen” organic list and conventional items from the “Clean Fifteen” list only when necessary. Customers can choose between individual meals or meal bundles, and payment can be set as “a la cart” or subscription.

Sample menu items include beef short ribs with mushroom gravy and cauliflower "polenta," apple cinnamon paleo tarts, a smoked salmon breakfast bowl, and more. Individual meals are on the pricier side, ranging from $17 to $25, however, customers can save by purchasing a meal bundle. 

Important:

Verywell Fit does not provide medical advice, so before signing up for any of our paleo meal delivery recommendations, it's best to consult with a healthcare professional to make sure it's a service that fits your dietary wants and/or requirements.
