Starting out on any diet can be difficult, but if you’ve committed to following an AIP diet, you’re on this journey for a reason. You may be trying to reset or support the growth of healthy bacteria in your gut, or perhaps you’ve already experienced that the AIP diet has helped reduce your symptoms of Crohns, Lupus, and other autoimmune diseases. Whatever your reason, you’ve most likely discovered both the advantages and the challenges of the AIP diet.
While the advantages are plentiful, the challenges can be difficult to overcome; namely the challenge of finding the time to cook meals that comply with AIP restrictions. It isn’t difficult to find ingredients and recipes that follow the AIP diet, but finding the time to prep for and cook AIP meals 3 meals per day, 7 days per week can be challenging – especially if you lead a busy life. And because the AIP diet requires that you not only cut out grain, dairy, and legumes but also nightshades, eggs, nuts, seeds, and alcohol, it can be difficult to find pre-made, AIP compliant meals.
But it’s not impossible! In fact, there are a number of online companies who will craft and deliver AIP compliant meals straight to your door, no matter where you live. What we’ve aimed to do in this article is provide you with a wealth of resources that can help you maintain your AIP lifestyle. Read on to learn about the companies we’ve discovered who create AIP delivery meals.
We cover the following....
Getting AIP Meals Delivered to You
It may come as no surprise to you that there are companies online who specialize in creating home-cooked meals for any number of restrictive diets (Paleo, Whole30, clean eating, etc). As AIP is often considered an offshoot of the Paleo Diet, many companies that specialize in creating pre-cooked, Paleo-compliant meals will often offer a line of meals that follows the AIP protocol.
This is great news for anyone interested in keeping frozen, AIP-compliant meals at home. Keeping AIP freezer meals on hand can help take a lot of the stress out of a busy day. Whether you’re interested in keeping a few meals in your freezer or purchasing a month’s worth of fresh/refrigerated AIP meals, there is an option for you.
The companies that we’ve listed below are all companies that offer AIP friendly meals or meal plans delivered anywhere in the US, straight to your door (home, work, it doesn’t matter!). If you’re interesting in getting some support with your weekly and monthly AIP meal prep and planning, check out the AIP food delivery services we’ve compiled below.

Paleo on the Go
If you’re interested in ordering AIP meals, one of the best places to order from is Paleo on the Go. While there are several companies who offer AIP options, Paleo on the Go has an extensive AIP menu and a large AIP meal plan. The founder of the company has attempted to follow the AIP diet to help himself heal from his own health issues so he knows what it’s like for those on the AIP. If you’re interested in keeping a few emergency meals on hand, you can order their meals a la carte. If, on the other hand, you’re interested in ordering a full month of AIP compliant meals, Paleo on the Go has meal plans specifically for the AIP diet, with meal options like AIP pot pies, brisket, and mojo chicken wings. The company is meticulous in its sourcing and maintains close relationships with their vendors, and if you’re concerned about where your food is being sourced from, you can examine their list of vendors. The company delivers their meals nationwide.
See paleoonthego.com for prices and meal options.
Note: Paleo on the Go is offering a 10% discount for our readers, use code “MYPALEOS” at checkout for 10% off your entire order – one time use.
Although they recently changed their name to True Fare from Pre-Made Paleo, the emphasis on Whole30 and Paleo compliant meals has not changed. True Fare has put together a subset of their menu specifically for those on the AIP. Since they create only Whole30 approved meals, even their AIP plan, designed for the elimination phase of the AIP, follows the tenets of the Whole30 diet. No matter the meal you purchase, you can be sure that the produce being used in their meals is organic. Like Paleo on the Go, True Fare offers customers the option of purchasing a la carte items or choosing from a 5 or 10-day AIP meal plan (menu options have included pesto chicken, breakfast skillets, or turkey meatballs and organic broccoli soup). True Fare also offers hard-to-find proteins, and they have specific, AIP friendly options like wild-caught sea bass and water buffalo breakfast sausage. If you’re interested in fresh meal delivery (as opposed to frozen) True Fare offers a fresh option alongside their more economical frozen delivery option. Like Paleo on the Go, True Fare offers nationwide AIP meal delivery.
See truefare.com for the prices of their AIP food delivery plans
True Fare has offered a 5% discount (one time use) on all orders for our readers. Use code “MYPALEOS2018” at checkout
Caveman Chefs is a company that operates out of Colorado and uses local vendors and proteins to create globally inspired meals. Like Pete’s Paleo, they require that customers purchase a meal plan, but their plans vary in size and are customizable. Caveman Chefs will work with customers to make sure that their meals are compliant with all different kinds of diets. Customers can select the AIP option when choosing their meal-plan/dietary preferences. Caveman chef customers are often drawn to the wide variety of interesting proteins offered (like New Zealand lamb!). While the company offers several pickup locations (which are convenient if you’re local to Denver), they also ship nationally.

Caveman Chefs has offered 10% off all Caveman Chefs orders by mentioning the promo #ZachmyPALeos in the order comments or mentioned by phone during checkout.
Pete’s Paleo maintains a kitchen on both the east and west coasts of the US and prides itself on using only in-season produce from local vendors. Pete’s menu rotates constantly, depending on what produce their vendors offer. While Pete’s Paleo only offers meal plans, and their main plans focus on Paleo meals, they do have an option for customers who follow an AIP diet. If you want, you can create your own five-meal meal plan from their “Eat What you Love” section. Here, they have AIP meal options (as well as options for customers following ketogenic or low FODMAP diets). Their meal options are creative and enticing (basil chicken with chive spaghetti squash and Swiss chard; black pepper tenderloin with golden beats and sautéed spinach), and all meals ship free.
See petespaleo.com for a complete list of prices on Pete’s AIP delivery offerings
Alternative Options for AIP Paleo Food Delivery
While the companies we’ve listed above have specific menu options and meal plans for the AIP diet, there are also plenty of other companies that create Paleo dishes that meet AIP requirements. Below, we’ve listed companies who focus on creating Paleo-compliant meals. While these companies don’t have specific AIP menus, many of their meals work well with an AIP diet. They allow customers to see exactly which ingredients are used in their meal prep, which means you can make informed decisions as to whether or not their meals work for you. Like the companies listed above, these companies ship nationally.
The Good Kitchen
Before they were The Good Kitchen, they were ModPALEO and they had a dedicated AIP menu. When they rebranded their company as The Good Kitchen, they did away with their strict AIP menu and focused, instead, on Paleo meals. The Good Kitchen requires that customers purchase a meal plan, and have a weekly rotating menu – often impacted by what ingredients are available from their local vendors. While their meals are not labeled as such, they typically offer a few AIP friendly dishes each week. To figure out whether a meal is AIP compliant, click on each meal under the Get Started section. You can see all of the ingredients used in each meal. One reason to consider ordering from The Good Kitchen: shipping is free!
See thegoodkitchen.com for prices on AIP friendly home delivery,
The Good Kitchen is offering a 15% discount for our readers. Use promo code “mypaleos” at checkout for 15% off your first order.
Trifecta brands itself as a meal-delivery plan geared towards helping people with their fitness goals. They don’t offer an AIP plan, but they offer Paleo, clean eating, and vegetarian plans. What Trifecta offers that none of the other sites do, however, is an a la carte plan that allows you to order ingredients in bulk. This could be a good option for people in an AIP diet. You can get bison burgers, ahi tuna, and mixed vegetables in bulk – this way you can easily put together meals yourself. All items on their a la carte menu come pre-cooked and lightly seasoned (in general this means salt and olive oil but you likely will want to confirm for the specific item you are ordering). The food is humanely raised and organic, and putting your own meals together from Trifecta’s a la carte page is one of the more economical options for meal-creation ($6.90 a meal, based on their math). Like The Good Kitchen, Trifecta will ship anywhere in the US for free.
