273: Paleo Meal Delivery Services – EB’s Review

I had been really resistant to try any kind of paleo meal delivery service for a couple of reasons: they seemed really expensive and difficult to customize. I felt like it wasn’t worth the price to buy a package of meals most of which included components I wouldn’t personally eat (potato, sweet potato, fruit, etc).

I changed my mind when I found Paleo Power Meals. Today I’m sharing my 2-3 week experiment with Paleo Power Meals – the pros, the cons, what I loved and what I didn’t and how I plan to make this work for me moving forward.

**I have not been compensated in any way for this review. I paid in full for my meals and only reached out to them after 3 weeks of orders to request a coupon code for my listeners, which they gave. If you want to try Paleo Power Meals, use the coupon code ebprimal20 to save 20%**

EB’s Review: Paleo Meal Delivery Services

First, let me tell you about my overall experience with Paleo Power Meals: it was exceptional. The food is fresh, delicious & fat loss friendly. The portions are generous.

It’s also expensive. In today’s episode I’ll talk about how I plan to make it more affordable for me moving forward by adjusting how I order.

The pros of Paleo Power Meals

  • You can pick and choose which meals you want and the quantities. There’s no bundling so you aren’t stuck with more than what you want or meals you won’t enjoy
  • The food is fresh, not frozen
  • The portions are generous
  • They have many options with little to no starch (this is a big deal for me personally, based on my carbohydrate intolerance)
  • It saves so much time & mental energy to not have to plan meals, grocery shop, buy snacks, prepare food, clean up, etc

The cons of Paleo Power Meals

  • It’s expensive, but I think when you cut out snacking, reduce eating out, eliminate impulse purchases and realize how much time and mental energy you save, it’s a lot more “worth it” than it might seem
  • The website is a little clunky – not super easy to order a bunch of meals at once
  • They don’t ship internationally

Here are some of my favorite meals. You can see more pics of the food over on my Instagram account!

I’m not sure if you can call it a meal delivery service (technically I think it fits and yes I know they aren’t paleo meal delivery), but I also tried Quest’s new Keto frozen meals. They are FAR cheaper than Paleo Power Meals, however:

  • shipping is outrageous – I paid more to ship the food than I paid for the food itself
  • the food is frozen and mine was all freezer-burned
  • the portions are small
  • it wasn’t very tasty – average, at best
  • it can’t possibly compete with the quality of Paleo Power Meals
