Pete’s Paleo

Pete’s Paleo offers ready-to-eat Paleo 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?

Paleo, it turns out is getting the freshest ingredients, grown and raised properly, from as close a source as possible. Sound familiar? Great food and Paleo are one and the same.

At Pete’s Paleo we chase flavor, and nutrition is a bonus. We don’t write the menus, our farmers and ranchers do. With a team of chefs to help me, we take whatever vegetables and cuts of meat that come in our kitchen and cook it for our customers, fresh each week. Using the same principles, methods and recipes from my time in fine dining restaurants we ship amazing Paleo meals, fresh, to your door.

Our kitchen has over 40 years of combined experience at the sous chef level and higher; we scour Southern California and the South East for the best stuff, from the coolest farmers and ranchers. Then we take our years of experience and make amazing, delicious, healthy meals, vacuum sealed for freshness and to enhance flavor, package them in specially designed shipping containers so that it will arrive fresh at your door whether you’re in Seattle, Las Vegas, Des Moines, NYC or Orlando.

Pete's Paleo Meals

Sit back and enjoy a different seasonal menu, every week! Organic prepared meals delivered fresh to your door. Just reheat and serve.

Pete’s Paleo goes a step further. Not only does our menu change on a weekly basis with the seasons, but we also change that menu based on what our farmers grow and harvest out of the ground that very week we cook it. This means our meals are sustainable and more nutritious for you.

Pete's Paleo Bacon

No added sugar, nitrates or nitrites, just belly, spices, salt and love.

Once you go Pete’s, you never go back. The commercial bacon sold in the grocery stores that you once couldn’t imagine Sunday morning without, will be a distant memory after you have our bacon. Pete’s Paleo bacon is the meatiest, most supple, melt-in-your-mouth bacon you’ll ever have. It’s a game-changer.

What makes our bacon so special?

  • Pastured pigs from quality ranches
  • Cured instead of brined so there’s no “shrinkage”
  • We use NO SUGAR or sweeteners of any kind
  • This bacon is good for you. Period.
  • Sold in an unsliced slab so you can cut however thick or thin you prefer.
Bone Broth Pack

All broth is AIP friendly and free of gluten, dairy, soy, salt, preservatives, MSG, added flavorings and added colorings.
We use bones from animals that were humanely raised on open pastures with clean diets free of antibiotics, hormones and grains.

We only use organic vegetables and herbs and our water is filtered, ensuring the final product is as pure and flavorful as it is packed full of vitamins, minerals and gelatin.

Pete and Sarah Servold

About Us

Pete is a classically trained chef from Le Cordon Bleu and has worked in the restaurant industry for over 15 years. He is an artist and food is his medium.

Given that Pete’s Paleo puts a high importance on using seasonal ingredients, Pete takes pride in ensuring that each time that specific ingredient makes an appearance on our menu during the season, it’s treated differently each time—different spices and cooking methods—so that you’re not bored and everything tastes different each week!

Hey we get it, this whole meal delivery thing isn’t the new kid on the block of ideas anymore.

There has been a proliferation of meal companies big and small since Sarah and I started our little company seven years ago. But with that said, we still feel that there’s quite a bit that makes us different and honestly better than the rest.

Most importantly, our meals are prepared!!! Most of these other companies just send you ingredients and a recipe card. The whole point of services like ours is to make your life easier.

On average if you get home at 7:30pm and start cooking one of their meals, you won’t be eating till 9pm. And you know what? Your kitchen is still a disaster! Sure it might take ME 30 minutes to make those meals. But I'm a pro. It will take the average person an hour, and again, you're still doing dishes.

With our meals, you get home at 7:30, you're eating at 7:40 and there’s no kitchen clean up! We don't just save you a trip to the grocery store, we really make your life more convenient. No shopping, no cooking, no cleaning. That's a real value and a real help.

When it comes to our meals, we have incredible variety. Our weekly menus have 10 different menu items. That means 10 different types and styles of protein using different cooking methods and flavor profiles. Then there are 20 veggies! Sure you're going to eat kale a few times a week, which you should be, but for the most part you're going to be eating a huge variety of vegetables, certainly more than if you were cooking for yourself or even if you were using another meal company.

Now, let’s talk flavor. We change the menus weekly and seasonally. Our spice blends are created by our own chefs and then executed for us by local spice companies for each respective kitchen. Every season we rewrite the menu as a team, incorporating new ideas from our recent travel and continuing education. Sometimes we can be accused of things being a little too flavorful, but we're always going to walk that fine line and bring you exciting, delicious meals that are also quite good for you.

At Pete’s Paleo we chase flavor, and nutrition is a bonus.

So yes, we're one of dozens of options out there now. But if you're looking for 100% allergen (gluten, soy, dairy, egg, nut) free, restaurant quality meals that come prepared and shipped directly to your door, Pete's Paleo is going to be the one for you.

Where Do You Deliver?

Answer: Thanks for your interest in our meals! We deliver nationwide via FedEx, including Hawaii and Alaska. If FedEx delivers to your area, then you're able to receive our food!

What goes into the price of the shipping?

Answer: Because we are shipping food fresh (not frozen), we have to make sure that each shipment gets delivered to our customers within 1-2 days. To ensure maximum freshness, we use custom frozen gel packs and biodegradable insulated liners to protect the food which adds extra weight to the shipments and an extra expense for the materials. We’ve worked hard to get our customers the best shipping rates possible, given our transit time and packaging requirements, and most orders do ship free. We don’t mark up our air shipping rates so the rate that you see is the most discounted rate we can offer. We feel that the value of having someone else doing all the grocery shopping, food preparation, and cooking for you is priceless and we hope you feel the same.

What meal plan has serving size for 2 people?

Answer: Great question! It depends on if you want meals for lunch and dinner for just the work week or the entire week. The 14 meal plan comes with 14 individual serving size meals. So 1 person can use it for lunch and dinner for the entire week, or 2 people can use it for lunch (or even dinner) for the entire week. If you only need for the work week, then the 10 meal plan is the one for you!

How many servings come in the 14 meal plan?

Answer: Great question! The 14 meal plan can be as versatile as you need it to be. The plan comes with 14 individual serving size meals. So 1 person can use it for lunch and dinner for the entire week, or 2 people can use it for lunch (or even dinner) for the entire week.

How many calories are in each meal?

Answer: The nutritional information is available for Pete’s Paleo meals on our menu page.

What Is The Sodium Content In Your Meals?

Answer: Each meal comes with nutrition facts on the label and will indicate sodium. If you're looking for a specific meal, please shoot us an email and we can let you know ahead of time! (hello@petespaleo.com) Nerdy details: For someone eating 3 meals a day, our sodium level is rather well aligned (barring a few exceptions) with the RDA. Most processed foods and frozen meals made from refined and processed ingredients (not us!) only contain the sodium that was added for seasoning (from salt, probably a poor quality salt too). Many Paleo foods are rich in sodium, and many other minerals that work in balance with sodium (like magnesium, potassium and calcium) to create balance in the body. The USDA dietary recommendation for sodium is 2,300 mg per day. While salt recommendations vary between individuals based on age, gender, physical activity, and health conditions, much of the scientific data supports an intake between 3000 and 7000 milligrams of sodium, or 1.5 to 3.5 teaspoons of salt, per day. (This is a great summary of the human need for salt) People who are quite active or sweat a lot should consume salt on the higher end, and those who are less active may want to consume on the lower end. Certain conditions require sodium moderation, but for the majority of healthy individuals, salting to taste will provide an appropriate level of sodium in the diet. The Paleo diet includes many natural sources of sodium including sea vegetables, fish, shellfish, and meat, plus certain plants such as beets, carrots, celery, spinach, and turnips. All these foods are also potassium rich, resulting in cellular balance of these elements.

Do You Make Ketogenic (Keto) Meals?

Answer: Yes! Within the Eat What You Love collection, we have Keto compliant meals. And rest assured, all meals are strict Paleo and feature the same high quality ingredients as our classic meal plans. These Eat What You Love meals ship frozen so that you can save them in your freezer for those nights you just don't feel like cooking but still want to eat healthy. We ship out each Tuesday and based on your location, the meals will arrive anywhere from Wednesday - Friday. And don't worry, we use the same custom gel packs and biodegradable liners to maintain safe food temperatures throughout delivery.

What is the vegetarian menu?

Answer: Our vegetarian meal plan has the same menu as our regular meal plans, except the protein is substituted out with another one of the same vegetable sides. So instead of each meal consisting of 1 protein and 2 vegetable sides, it will come with 3 individually portioned vegetable sides. Please note that these are truly just vegetable sides, we do not offer any plant based proteins.

Where are your meats, vegetables, protein and produce sourced?

Answer: All of our produce is organically grown and our meat is natural, grass fed and pastured (where appropriate) and sustainably raised. It is Pete’s Paleo firm belief that you are what you eat and we will always strive to guarantee you are eating delicious, healthy food. Please see our resources page for a list of all of our sources for proteins and produce.

What kind of fats/oils do you cook with?

Answer: We cook with avocado oil, animal fat, coconut oil, and olive oil (below the smoke point). We do NOT cook with butter or ghee.

Are Pete's Paleo Meals compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP)?

Answer: Yes! We have a specific line of individual order meals that are AIP and FODMAP friendly. These meals ship frozen each Tuesday and will arrive to you anywhere from Wednesday- Friday based on your location.

I have a food allergy, what are your ingredients? Is Pete's Paleo for me?

Answer: All of our meals are free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, legumes, preservatives, GMOs, artificial sweeteners, and natural sweeteners (e.g. honey & maple syrup). We also have Low FODMAP and AIP (Auto Immune Protocol) Friendly meals in the Eat What You Love collection. All ingredients including spice blends adhere to these two diets. However please note, we do not list specific spice blend ingredients for meat and vegetables. If you have a severe or life threatening allergy, we would suggest that you maintain control over your own meals by cooking from scratch at home vs buying meals.

Where do you get your ingredients?

Answer: All of our produce is organically grown and our meat is natural, grass fed and pastured (where appropriate) and sustainably raised. It is Pete’s Paleo firm belief that you are what you eat and we will always strive to guarantee you are eating delicious, healthy food. Please see our resources page for a list of all of our sources for proteins and produce.

Do you add anything crazy to your bacon?

Answer: Nope! Our bacon has been cured and smoked and we don’t add any sugar to it—only delicious spices and salt. It doesn’t contain nitrates, nitrites, nightshades, garlic, or onions either.

How long does the bacon last?

Answer: The bacon will last for about 2 weeks in the refrigerator (if you can make it last that long!) and up to 2 months in the freezer.

Where do your Bone Broth ingredients come from?

Answer: We firmly believe this to be the most important question to ask when considering what to put in your body. We believe in complete transparency because you shouldn’t have to wonder where your food comes from. We source as many of our bones from ranches located here in Southern California and when needed, supplement through other quality purveyors. We use only bones from pasture-raised animals and only organic vegetables, herbs and vinegar products.

What separates Pete's Paleo Bone Broth from all the rest?

Answer: Glad you asked! We love this question. The answer is simple, priorities. The bulk of our energy goes into sourcing every ingredient that goes into our broth. We pride ourselves on using bones from animals that were humanely raised on open pastures with clean diets free of antibiotics, hormones and grains. We prioritize this above all else because what goes into the animals body goes into our body. We only use organic vegetables and herbs and our water is filtered, ensuring the final product is as pure and flavorful as it is packed full of vitamins, minerals and gelatin. You can rest assured knowing that our broths are free of gluten, dairy, soy, salt, preservatives, MSG, added flavorings and added colorings. *All of our products are made in a kitchen free of: gluten, dairy and soy.

What are the benefits of bone broth?

Answer: Broth is considered to be both a food and a medicine! It’s known to heal the skin, gut, GI tract, aid in digestion or help you beat that cold you’ve been suffering from. Because broth is an extract of connective tissue, it is great for ailments affecting, joints, bones, lungs, muscle and blood. Incorporating bone broth into your established eating patterns can yield tremendous medicinal effects. A cup a day keeps the doctor away! “Stock contains minerals in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons–stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain.” Sally Fallon, westonaprice.org

Does Pete's Paleo send out samples for blog reviews?

Answer: Thanks a bunch for thinking of us; we LOVE it when people help us spread the word. We get a TON of requests for free samples for review, so please include some really good reasons why we should send samples out to you. Those reasons should be as close as possible to this format: “I have had this blog for xx years/months, and I currently get xxxxx visitors per month who are really focused on Paleo. I have reviewed products similar to yours and had a click through rate of xx and the conversion rate was xx. I’ve attached a screenshot of Google (or some other reputable) Analytics showing my last month’s traffic and I’ve also attached another Google Analytics screenshot with the click through rate for a review post I did on another company’s products. Go ahead and include anything else you think might be helpful in helping us make a decision to send out samples to you. We’ve built some really great relationships with people who have sampled and reviewed our stuff, and we look forward to building another one with you!

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.

 


Disclosures:

100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 


Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.

 


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 

 


 

Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
