Local Paleo Meal Delivery Services based in Austin
The following Austin local businesses offer delivery of chef prepared paleo meals to Austin and Round Rock residents:
Beetnik Foods are a healthy, ready-to-heat meal company whose headquarters are based in Austin, Texas. They have meals stocked nationwide through grocery stores such as Costco, Walmart and Kroger, so you can rest assured that you’ll be able to find them near you.
Their meals are completely organic and Paleo-friendly, with the Paleo-certified sticker on compliant meals (although even their Paleo compliant meals may not be strict enough for some Paleo purists). Only a few of their meals contain rice, but are still approved as gluten-free, for those of you who aren’t as strict or need those higher-glycemic carbohydrates in your diet (e.g. athletes).
Their meals are made fresh and then frozen, so you’ll find Beetnik Foods in the frozen section of supermarkets. When you get home you can keep them frozen or thawed, and then heat them in your microwave or oven. Beetnik Foods are a great option for people who want to follow a Paleo way of eating but don’t want to sign up for a subscription service; all you have to do is make sure you stock up on them and keep them in your freezer ready for those days that are a bit more hectic than usual.
For more details, reviews, and more product info see our detailed write up of Beetnik Foods.
Unfortunately, a number of local austin paleo delivery services have closed down over the years, such as Kippin It Paleo and Fixed Foods. It is important to support these businesses so that they can continue to provide this option to the Austin paleo community. Luckily, for those with specific dietary requirements, paleo Austin eaters are not restricted to only the above companies, they are also in the delivery area of the following dedicated paleo meal delivery services in the section below.
Snap Kitchen are a popular healthy fast-casual chain of cafes that are starting to spread across the USA. With multiple locations in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia and San Antonio, they are sure to expand to other cities in the future.
They have an app suitable for smartphones so that you can order easily wherever you are. When you place an order, they then prepare, cook and deliver it to a location of your choosing. Their menu varies on location and seasonality so that you receive meals that contain fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.
However, they do maintain a number of meal plans so that even though the individual dishes may vary, you can still follow a specific dietary meal plan such as Paleo, Whole 30, Vegetarian, Low-Carb, High Protein, Keto or what they call Balance (a general term for healthy meals that don’t have requirements). You also have the ability to completely customize your meals so that you receive what you want without compromise.
Snap Kitchen offers a subscription service, meaning that you pick the number of meals you would like delivered on a weekly basis which then continues to roll over until you don’t require their service anymore. They make it easy to skip or reschedule orders in case you’re away on holiday or for work.
Spirited Food Co.
Spirited Food Co. is a small, local business dedicated to providing Paleo and AIP-friendly meals to the Austin area. They have been around since 2001, which really is a testament to the quality of their service.
Customers have said that their meals help to aid them in weight loss as well as maintaining good health, allowing those with autoimmune conditions to feel good and know that they are receiving meals that assist in their healing journey.
Spirited Food Co. create new menus weekly, keeping things interesting for the client as well as returning to old favourites from time to time. They do all this whilst continuing to use local, fresh and organic ingredients and even going as far as making their own sauces and vinaigrettes so that you receive only the highest quality food.
All meals are completely gluten-free (consistent with an AIP-friendly plan), and if there is dairy in any of the meals, it always comes on the side so that you can choose whether or not you’d like to add it. The reason why dairy isn’t completely omited is because Spirited Food Co. also cater for customers who follow a Primal-centric diet. They also have a Skinny meal plan dedicated to those who are on a weight loss path.

Paleo Food Delivery Services that Deliver to Austin
The following are paleo food delivery companies which sell only paleo approved meals and deliver to addresses in Austin:
Eatology, although not located in Austin is based in Bryan Texas near Texas A&M. Eatology delivers food all over Texas, as well as nationally. Residents of Austin would fall into their quickest delivery window outside of their immediate area.
Eatology focuses on making foods with all Paleo ingredients. However, in addition, they utilize the Zone Protocol for determining the proportion of protein, fats and carbs in each meal, with the goal of helping you feel more satisfied, to help with weight loss and to improve health (by avoiding fluctuations in your blood insulin levels).
The Zone diet usually appeals to athletes as well, due to the meals being naturally macro-balanced in favour of improving athletic performance, which is great for those Paleo practitioners who compete in sports such as Crossfit or likewise. All meals are between 155 and 250 calories based on whether you choose 2-block or 3-block portion sizes.

Pete’s create chef-prepared meals using local, seasonal and organic ingredients that are appropriate for a Paleo diet. All of their meat is grass-fed and pastured, and they refuse to use gluten, dairy or soy in their meals.

Making an investment in your health
Although there are many benefits to the paleo diet, it can be a lot of cooking. Sometimes you just need or want a break.
There are many life transitions, such as a new baby, moving houses, starting a new health or workout routine or starting a new job where there may just not be time to cook healthy meals at home.
These paleo delivery services give you a great alternative during these periods. If the alternative is going back to unhealthy food, you realize that giving yourself that support can be a choice towards better health and a worthwhile investment.
Although this may sound like a splurge at first, as you look more carefully at the quality of the ingredients and compare these meals with eating out at a restaurant, it helps put the costs of organic food delivery austin services in perspective.
When you consider what the costs are for cheating on your health, you start to see that there are many costs to consider.
