Pete’s Paleo Pre-made Food Service

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?

We started Pete’s Paleo delivery nationwide to bring seasonal, fine dining to everyone. Pete’s Paleo San Diego was the original kitchen and we have most recently launched in Atlanta. What this means for us is access to a greater supply of locally sourced, high quality ingredients (read: organically grown, grass-fed, pastured, etc) and for you it means quicker and cheaper delivery!

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.

Life is nuts and we are here to help. If you have stumbled upon this page, there is a good chance your head is still spinning from your trip down the rabbit hole that got you here.

“The food pyramid was completely wrong?”

“Whole grains are bad for me?”

“You don’t need milk to get calcium?!”

Breathe. Yes, most of what we learned growing up about fat being bad and grains being good is all pretty much nonsense. But a good diet and your diet probably aren’t as far apart as you think, especially when you are a Pete’s Paleo customer.

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 and Sarah Servold of Pete’s Paleo have a passion for food. Not just any type of food, but real, great tasting, food. 

There was a large demand for Paleo in San Diego, so Peter and Sarah decided to start the best Paleo food delivery business right here in America’s Finest City. Paleo delivery from San Diego and Atlanta benefits not only our customers because they get an enormous amount of varied produce but also the local community because we can support San Diego and Atlanta farmers and ranchers. While the number of Paleo restaurants in San Diego and Paleo restaurants in Atlanta has been steadily growing, our paleo meal delivery service allows people all over the country to enjoy paleo delivery San Diego style: meaning organic, seasonal, non-GMO, fresh and most importantly, varied!

Peter Servold is a classically trained and celebrated chef  of the Paleo Community that has created Pete’s Paleo:  a one-of-a-kind,  pre-made food service company that takes the frustration out of cooking bland meals in a busy lifestyle by offering clean, wholesome, and tasty meals that one could only get from a chef that has dedicated his life’s work to creating healthy, tasty, quality food for others to enjoy.

Sarah is a former advertising executive who is in love with food her husband creates, mother of their daughter Lois, and the talented photographer behind their new book, Paleo By Season.

We are very proud to announce that all of Pete’s Paleo meals have met the strictest standards and quality assurance guidelines of the Certified Paleo label, and is the first to achieve this certification for each of his products— a credit to Pete’s unwavering attention to ensuring the highest quality ingredients in each of his meals.

Pete and Sarah reside in San Diego, CA.

This is the thing. We care deeply about the quality of our food. We make a point of developing personal relationships with our farmers/ranchers. Well cared for animals and produce = delicious and healthy food, which = happy and healthy customers.

What goes into the price of 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. We don’t mark up our 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 distinguishes Pete's Paleo from other meal delivery services?

Answer: Great question! Here’s the deal. 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! Pete’s Paleo has direct relationships with our farms and ranches. We believe it’s important to know who is responsible for providing the food that we cook for each of you. We are cooking produce that was harvested out of the ground that day (sometimes the day before). Produce at the pinnacle of freshness means more nutrients for you! And yes of course, all of our meals are completely gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and we don’t use sweeteners of any kind (even natural).

What is the Family Plan and how is it different from your other plans?

Answer: The Family Plan consists of 5 meals, with each meal consisting of 4 servings. It’s ideal for customers who are looking to order enough food to feed 4 people at once. Meals are not packaged individually, so it’s best for sharing and eating together “family style”. Below is a side-by-side comparison of the Family Plan next to one of our individually packaged plans (5 meal, 10 meal, or 14 meal).

How big are the portions?

Answer: Every meal is a single serving and comes with 5–6 oz. of protein and two 3-4 oz. of cooked sides or accoutrements. This is plenty of food for almost all of our clients. That being said, we do have the option for larger portion sizes for those living a very intense training regimen.The upgrade will double your protein in each serving or add an additional side for each meal.

How are the meals packaged?

Answer: We place the food in BPA-free plastic bags and vacuum-seal it for maximum freshness.

How are the meals delivered?

Answer: Simple answer: UPS nationwide delivery (1-2 days via Ground or 2 Day Air) and local San Diego pick up options Food can either be picked up at local San Diego locations or shipped directly to your home via UPS (within 1-2 days), nationwide. Food that is shipped is placed in biodegradable insulated boxes with custom frozen gel packs (and dry ice during summer months), because we ship FRESH, not frozen. Local drop off orders must be picked up by Friday, and Pete’s Paleo will not be responsible for food spoilage. Remember, we are shipping food, and while it ships fresh in an insulated box with frozen gel packs (and sometimes dry ice), it’s still perishable. You will receive tracking information from UPS on Monday or Tuesday. Please arrange for the box to be refrigerated as soon as it is delivered. Unfortunately, Pete’s Paleo cannot be responsible for food spoilage after the box has been delivered, if it is not refrigerated immediately. UPS does offer the ability for customers to arrange for alternative delivery options once you have your tracking number.

How do I reheat my meals?

Answer: The food is already cooked; you are just warming it up. Every item varies slightly. Generally, however, you remove the food from the bags and either microwave for 1–2 minutes or sauté in a pan for 5–6 minutes (this is our preferred method).

How long do the meals last?

Answer: Your meals can stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week and can be put in the freezer for up to two months. All of our food is cooked completely free of additives and preservatives and we know you’ll taste the difference.

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?

Answer: We currently do not offer a complete Pete’s Paleo menu that’s compliant with the Autoimmune Protocol. Some of our meals include tomatoes and peppers and the spices we use include chili, paprika, other nightshades, and herbs from seeds like mustard and cumin. With that said, our meals are not recommended for someone who is very strictly following the AIP diet. However, our line of meals made for the Wahls Paleo Protocol™ are completely AIP compliant!

I have a food allergy. 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). Most of our snacks contain nuts, so if you have a nut allergy, we recommend that you don’t order the snacks. Rarely do we include nuts in our meals, but when we do, we include it in the menu description.

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.

How long does shipping and delivery take?

Answer: We ship via UPS. All of our fresh products (paleo meals, bacon) will arrive within 1-2 days and we provide the cheapest option available to you - whether that's UPS Ground or UPS 2 Day Air. Both services will arrive within 1-2 days. We also offer Next Day Air Saver, if you absolutely need a guaranteed next day delivery. We ship our frozen products (21DSD, Wahls, Bone Broth solo purchase) via UPS Ground or UPS 3 Day Select and based on location will arrive within 1-3 days.

Can I make substitutions?

Answer: The only options for substitutions are no pork and no duck. If you choose no pork/duck, we will just double up on some of the other proteins from that week’s menu. Pete’s Paleo feels it is crucial to your health that you are eating a varied, seasonal menu. That’s what our menus are based and designed around. Don’t be afraid to try new things and find out how delicious they are!

Can I cancel my order?

Answer: If you need to cancel your order, please email us at info@petespaleo.com or call us at 888-418-1489 no later than Monday at midnight of the week that you’re scheduled to receive your order.

What are the cutoff times and delivery days?

Answer: Every order that is in by Monday at midnight PST can be picked up at your dropoff location on that same Thursday or will be shipped from our kitchen on Wednesday (bacon & paleo meals) (1-2 day delivery time based on location) or Tuesday (21DSD, Wahls, Bone Broth only) (1-3 day delivery time based location). Every order that comes in after Monday at midnight PST will go into next week’s order and be next week’s menu.

Where do I place my order?

Answer: Please visit our online store.

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. Newport Meat Company Bartels Farms Open Spaces Meats Specialty Produce Suzie’s Farm

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

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


Disclosures:

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


How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 


Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
