Why Pete's Paleo?
Pete’s Paleo offers ready-to-eat meals, but what sets us apart from the rest of the pack is that our meals are made with the highest quality, real food ingredients. In fact, the farm fresh vegetables we use are literally picked out of the ground just a few days before you get them in your meals! We don't make compromises on quality. That's not our style. Our meals don't sit in a freezer for weeks or months at a time before you get them. Instead, we cook our meals the SAME WEEK that you get them and they are delivered fresh, not frozen. How cool is that?
Our Customers Include:
- People who want to eat healthier but don’t know how to get started
- Busy folks who don’t have time to prepare Paleo meals

Pete’s Paleo is like your personal Paleo delivery chef.
✓ Plan ✓ Shop ✓ Cook ✓ Deliver
What to Expect:
Your meals will arrive in a box (delivery) or a big brown paper bag (drop-off). Inside the box/bag are silver pouches. Each pouch contains one meal (and one pouch contains your snacks, if you ordered snacks).
Take the silver pouches out of the box/bag and place them in the fridge right away. Next, take out the menu and hang it on your fridge proudly! When you’re ready to eat your first meal, take one of the silver pouches out of the fridge. Each pouch contains 1 meal: 1 serving of protein and 2 servings of sides, individually packaged in vacuum-sealed bags.
Vacuum-sealed bags keep the food fresh for a week in the fridge and for up to 2 months in the freezer!
(Note: Orders with "Hero Protein" consist of 2 servings of protein and orders with "Hero Sides" consist of 3 servings of sides) We already cooked the meals for you so all you have to do is reheat them!
There are 2 Ways to Reheat Your Meals:
- MICROWAVE: Cut open the bags and place the food in a microwave-safe plate or bowl. Heat for 1-2 minutes.
- SAUTÉ (recommended): Cut open the bags and sauté food in a heated pan. If heating up seafood or leaner cuts of meat, add some stock, bacon fat, butter, ghee, or oil to the pan first. If heating up fattier cuts of meat, it’s not necessary to add anything to the pan.

Once you've heated up your meals, it's time to pull a Mrs. Doubtfire move and serve the gourmet meal you spent hours preparing onto a nice plate :)
If you want to extend your week of meals beyond a week, stick the silver pouches in the freezer and the food will stay good for up to two months. When you're ready to eat them, you can defrost them in 2 ways:
- Put them in the fridge the night before you want to eat them
- Fill up a bowl with hot (not boiling) water and submerge the vacuum-sealed bags in the water for 20 minutes or until thawed
Once the meals are thawed, reheat as directed above. Serve and enjoy!
Do You Heart Bacon?
Not only do we offer pre-made meals, but we've got bacon too! We sell our bacon in 1 lb slabs so you can slice them as thin or as thick as you desire. Our Pete's Paleo bacon is free of sugar, nitrates, or nitrites. It's dry cured with salt, herbs and spices and cold smoked for two days. This ain't your typical store-bought bacon. Order some today!
