What’s Unique About Paleo on the Go?

All meals prepared by Paleo on the Go strictly adhere to the Paleo and AIP friendly diets. The theory behind paleo is that the human body will do its best when we eat foods similar to our early ancestors. This means that many of today’s modern foods are off-limits, including refined sugars, processed foods, and grains. AIP is a stricter version of paleo, and its goal is to discover which foods cause inflammation. The way it works is that you eliminate specific foods, including nuts, seeds, eggs, grains, soy, dairy, additives, sugar, legumes, and nightshades—then you add them back one by one and see which one causes inflammation. It’s a diet that’s promoted for people who suffer from inflammation related to autoimmune disorders. 

As you can imagine, sticking to strict diets like paleo and AIP is hard, even if the ultimate goal is to improve your health. So when you have a company like Paleo on the Go, which offers delicious meals and adheres to these principles, you’ve found something quite rare.

All meals are cooked in-house in POTG’s grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free facilities in Largo, Florida. 

How It Works

Visit the website and choose your foods—you can order individual items, meal bundles, or full menus. When you’re browsing the site, you can look for meals based on diet preferences—keto, paleo, Whole30, AIP Friendly, and GAPS friendly (another elimination diet).

Once you place your order, you’ll receive your shipment in 3 days or less. Meals are shipped via FedEx, anywhere in the US (If you live in Florida, you have the option to pick up your meals from the company’s facilities.) 

Meals are delivered frozen and can be stored for up to 6 months in the freezer or for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. When you get your delivery, it’s best to put everything in the freezer (except whatever you want to eat right away). Meals are delivered in sealed trays that can be warmed up in the oven or microwave, and each item has heating instructions printed on it. 

There is a $99 minimum meal order, because, as the site says, “Shipping real food isn’t cheap.” With a $99 minimum order, shipping costs are kept to a standard flat rate.

Meal Options

Paleo and AIP friendly diets are for meat lovers. There’s no dairy in any of the meals, and grains are also eliminated. On the POTG site, you can order individual food items and meals, food bundles, or subscriptions. You can order a food item or bundle once, or sign up for a subscription.

There are different kinds of bundles, and they change monthly. Below are some sample bundles: 

  • July monthly bundle: 10 meals, 1 bone broth and Passion Mango Bone Broth Pops. 
  • Breakfast bundle: 14 fun and creative breakfasts. 
  • Phoenix Helix Variety Pack: A seasonal bundle curated by Eileen Laird, aka The Phoenix Helix. Bundles typically contain a bone broth, breakfast, entrees, and sides. 
  • Keto sampler: 9 items, including entrees, soups, sides, and sauce. 
  • Whole30 sampler: 10 food items, including breakfasts, entrees, sides, and soups
  • Sweet Tooth Bundle: Cheesecake, cookies, muffins, brownies, tarts, and more.
