Are There Any Paleo Frozen Dinners at HEB?

As someone who is always on the hunt for good prepared Paleo friendly meal options, our articles have been looking carefully at the frozen sections of major grocery stores like HEB.

Are there Paleo Frozen Meals at HEB? There are not currently any fully Paleo compliant frozen meals available at HEB. Some of the frozen meals at HEB may work for those following a primal or less strict version of the Paleo Diet.

We cover all of the meals we did find in our analysis of potential Paleo meals in the HEB frozen aisle, and our advice for finding Paleo friendly meals if HEB is your go-to store.

HEB Paleo Meals?

This article is following on from our series on Paleo frozen dinners at large grocery stores, we’re now asking the question of whether there are any Paleo frozen dinners available at HEB.

HEB is based in the state of Texas, so if you’re a Paleo Texan, this is the article for you! 

Whilst conducting our research into HEB and their Paleo options, we found that there are unfortunately no Paleo dinners being stocked in store or online. However, HEB do have some ‘quasi-Paleo’ frozen (and fresh) dinners that might be a useful alternative for you to choose from instead.

When we use the term ‘quasi-Paleo’, we mean to say that these meals follow the general Paleo principles but have some non-Paleo ingredients included.

And for you Paleo practitioners who like to keep it as authentic as possible, we’ve got some other 100% strict Paleo delivery options for you to take a look at.

These are the ‘not quite Paleo’ but reasonably healthy options that HEB currently has in their frozen department. We’ve highlighted all of the not Paleo ingredients in bold for you to make it easier for you to decide which meals might be an option for you and your household.

National Paleo Meal Companies Offering Delivery to the US

Whilst we appreciate that there are currently some quasi-Paleo frozen meals currently on sale at HEB, it’s understandable that these meals aren’t going to be a suitable option for those who use a Paleo diet in order to manage symptoms of AIP or other health problems.

For this reason, we’ve also compiled a list of our most trusted Paleo meal delivery companies that ship meals all over the United States, which takes the worry out of finding Paleo-compliant meals, and can be ordered from the comfort of your bed.

Final Thoughts

It’s always a little bit disappointing to find a large grocery store that doesn’t have any Paleo meal options available, but the good news is that most retailers are interested in customer feedback. It’s always worth enquiring at your local HEB about the possibility of Paleo products being stocked in the future, because the higher demand there is, the more likely they will be happy to meet it.

However, in the meantime, we hope that this article has been informative and has given you some insight as to what’s currently on offer at HEB (even if it is just the quasi-Paleo options). Hopefully you’ve also found that there are a number of national Paleo meal delivery companies that would happily deliver to your area on a regular basis.

As always, if you’ve found a frozen Paleo dinner at your local HEB that we don’t know about, please let us know!


My goal with this website is to help get the message out about grain free diets such as the Paleo and Primal diets, SCD diet and GAPS diet, so that more people might benefit from them. My other main goal is to help everyone transitioning to these diets, which can be challenging when first starting down this path. It definitely was for me.
