PETE’S PALEO Meal Plans

The cost of Pete’s Paleo is higher than other meal plans, perhaps because all meals are gluten, soy, dairy, egg, and nut-free and organic ingredients are used. Cost is based on the number of meals ordered per week.
5 meals, $79.95
10 meals, $149.00
14 meals, $196.00

How PETE’S PALEO Works?
Pete’s Paleo is pretty simple: Place your order by Monday night. Food is shipped Wednesday and received by Friday. In the interim, farmers deliver their produce to the Pete’s Paleo kitchen the same day that it’s harvested and chefs whip up your meals, which can keep for up to a week in your fridge.
If you’re not sure which meal plan to choose, try starting with the smallest (5 meals, meaning 1 meal per weekday). You can change or cancel your subscription at any time, so you don’t need to worry about long-term payments.
When you get your delivery, you’ll see your meals in bags that are labeled “Meal 1,” Meal 2,” etc. This makes it easy to grab a bag and take it with you to work or heat it up at home.
Weekly menus are posted on the Pete’s Paleo website and change weekly. Currently, you don’t get to choose what meals you receive, though you can choose whether you want pork included as a protein option or if you prefer a vegetarian plan. Ala carte items are regularly available.
All meals are gluten, soy, dairy, egg, and nut-free, which means they consist of poultry/meat and 2 vegetable side dishes. Each meal comes with 5-5.5 ounces of protein and 7 ounces of veggies. All produce used is organic and non-GMO, and meat is grass-fed and pasteurized.
Some of Pete’s Paleo’s meals include: Mediterranean chicken with roasted cauliflower and spaghetti squash, Rosemary and thyme-crusted turkey with garlic collards and mashed cauliflower, and Grass-fed beef chili with sauteed kale and roasted butternut squash.
Many dishes are based on North American recipes as well such as Balsamic roasted chicken with sauteed spinach and roasted beets, Seared steak with fall vegetables, and sautéed peppers, and Grass-fed burger with sautéed spinach and acorn squash.
Pete’s Paleo is the signature plan which comes with 5 ounces of protein and 7 ounces of vegetables. Double protein or extra sides (veggies or low-carb starch) can be ordered.
Pete’s Paleo Lite includes smaller servings of the regular Pete’s Paleo meals for calorie-conscious folks.
“Eat what you love” is an ala carte menu where cauliflower rice bowls, beef tenderloin, bone broth, and Pete’s Paleo bacon is available.
Pete's "New You" meal box is a 4-week plan that includes breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The New You 3-day plan costs $500, while the New You 5-day plan costs $850.
With Pete's 21-Day Sugar Detox Plan, you can purchase 7, 14, or 21 dinners, which cost $163.50, $268.50, and $350.00, respectively.
Cooking instructions/recipe cards
Pete’s Paleo meals are fully prepared. No prep or cooking is required. Just heat and eat.
Pete’s Paleo offers signature bone broth and bacon. Double portions of meat/protein or extra sides can be added to meal orders for an additional charge.
Pete’s Paleo meals include fresh, seasonal ingredients, and thus the menus change every week. Meals arrived prepped and ready to heat and eat.
Pete’s Paleo also carries its own swag- a men’s and women’s tee shirt as well as a Paleo by Season book.
PETE’S PALEO Dietary Options
Pete’s Paleo also offers keto, AIP Friendly, and Low FODMAP options, but these must be ordered separately from the meal plans and are delivered frozen. Other products that can be ordered separately include Pete’s Paleo bacon and bone broth.
Keto is very low-carb, so most meals will provide simply meat/protein and low-carb veggies such as winter bacon scramble or pork cabbage stew. If the ala carte option is used, you can “create” your own keto meals.
AIP is “autoimmune protocol” friendly is a fairly restrictive, elimination diet of no gluten, dairy, nuts, eggs, seeds, and certain seasonings and spices. Low FODMAP (fermentable oligo, di, monosaccharides, and polyols) is a diet used for gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, SIBO, bloating, or gas. As these meals are difficult to prepare at home, they may be worth the cost. They will ship frozen.
Important to note
With Pete’s Paleo, you can opt for vegetarian meals, though vegetarian proteins are not offered (beans, soy, etc. as these are not paleo). Vegetarian meals or “veggies only” are basically vegetable-based meals.
Other ingredients aren’t needed to create meals unless you want to add your own plant-based or animal-based protein once meals are received.
