Paleo Meals To Go is a 21st century solution for Paleolithic dining in the outdoors. This company brings you lightweight, freeze-dried Paleo meals, snack, and bars in convenient packaging, simply perfect for backpacking, camping, hiking or any other outdoor activity. Its just-add-water meals are tasty and extremely handy in situations when cooking is not an option or would simply require too much work. If you are a passionate adventurer who enjoys Paleo cuisine, this Paleo Meals To Go review may be an interesting read.
How Paleo Meals To Go Works
Paleo Meals To Go is a delivery service that functions like any other online store. If you are planning a backpacking or camping trip, stop by the company’s website, pick out the meals and snacks you want to take with you, and proceed to checkout. It is as simple as that. No subscription, no commitment, just shop whenever you need Paleo meals to go.
The company’s offer is not too rich and it does not change, at least not often, but it should be more than enough to satisfy your dietary needs while you are out there exploring familiar and unfamiliar surroundings. With a bit over a dozen meals, trail snacks, and energy bars, it is easy to try them all out and stick to the ones that suit your taste.
All items are 100% Paleo and some of them are suitable for other diets as well. You can find a couple of meals and snacks that can be enjoyed on the Whole30 program or the keto diet, some of them are nut-free, some are vegetarian, and all of them are gluten-free, milk-free, soy-free, and grain-free.
What Makes Paleo Meals To Go Different
Paleo Meals To Go is a unique service indeed. It caters to a highly specific type of customers – outdoorsy individuals on the Paleo diet. However, its meals can also be enjoyed by people who suffer from a wide variety of allergies and they are simply a great choice for backpacking, regardless of your eating habits.
The meals are freeze-dried, which means that they are much tastier than dehydrated foods. Not only that, but they are more delicious than most freeze-dried meals as well. They have a long shelf life, normally between 9 and 15 months, depending on the type, so you can stock up on your favorites and have them ready whenever you are planning to go on an adventure.
While the prices are not too low, the company often offers sales, as well as special discounts. Since the meals represent a great option for members of the military, Paleo Meals To Go offers military discounts. If you are a member of the military, feel free to contact the company and request your military discount code.
Meals And Recipes
As suggested before in this Paleo Meals To Go review, the company does not change or expand its menu on a regular basis but instead sticks to a set of items that its regular customers already know and love. Therefore, you can always choose from the same 16 products in the company’s standard offer, unless some of them are sold out, which happens from time to time. New items are rarely added.
The items can be divided into several categories. The first category comprises savory meals, such as Mountain Beef Stew and Summit Savory Chicken, both customer favorites and Whole30-compliant. There are 5 savory meals in total, all of them belonging to the stew, chili, and curry categories.
You can also purchase breakfasts, including Palisade Pineapple Mango, Cliffside Coconut Berry, and Butte Cacao Banana.
Both savory meals and breakfasts are easily prepared. All you have to do is add the indicated amount of hot water (or cold water if hot is not an option) to the pouch, reseal it, and wait for 10 to 12 minutes for the meal to rehydrate.
Other items include snacks and sweet and savory bars. Snacks include Apex Fruit Snacks and Plateau Pineapple Tidbits. Sweet bars include Blueberry Vanilla Lithic Bar, Banana Bread Lithic Bar, and Dark Chocolate Brownie Lithic bar. The selection of savory bars features Wild Zora BBQ Beef Bar, Wild Zora Curry Masala Turkey Bars, and Wild Zora Chili Beef Bar.
As you can see, while not exactly numerous, the items are rather well crafted and feature exciting flavors that are easy to fall in love with. In case you need some help choosing, our favorites are Mountain Beef Stew, Butte Cacao Banana, and Wild Zora Chilli Beef Bar.
At first, we found the prices to be a bit high, but after we tasted the meals ourselves, we found them to be more than okay. The ingredients are of exceptionally high quality, the meals are rich in protein and incredibly satisfying, and the packs are not small either. Here is a complete overview of the prices of the items, so you can decide for yourself.
Savory meals come in pouches of 3 – 3.05 oz. and cost between $10.50 and $11.50. Breakfasts come in 4.15 oz. pouches and normally cost around $10.
Fruit snacks (1 oz.) come at the price of $4 – $6 while all bars cost $3.
Paleo Meals To Go is available throughout the US, including Hawaii and Alaska, as well as military addresses. The meals are shipped via FedEx 2 Day, FedEx Ground, and USPS Priority Mail. The shipping costs largely depend on the location.
In case of misshipped items, damages during transit, defects and quality issues, returns are accepted within 30 days after the purchase date. Non-defective items must be returned unopened, in saleable condition. Replacements and substitutions are shipped free of charge.
