If your day has run long and you need a quick dinner option, it’s relatively easy to call up a local Birmingham joint and have food delivered. If you follow the Paleo diet, however, the prospect of finding a local restaurant that offers grain, dairy, and sugar-free meals might seem disheartening.
A major tenet of eating Paleo is preparing home-cooked meals with natural ingredients. However, if you’re like us, then there are bound to be times during your week where you just can’t find time to cook Paleo. If you’ve been searching for an option to those nights of the week when you can’t make time for your kitchen, you’ve come to the right place.
Whether you are interested in a one-time dinner or a recurring meal plan, there are options for you. Below, we’ve detailed several local and national companies who create meals to meet your specific needs – and they deliver.

Every Year there are More Options for Paleo Meal Delivery Birmingham & Paleo Delivery Options
When life turns unexpectedly, it can be difficult to sustain your Paleo lifestyle. Saving yourself a bit of time by ordering pre-made meals can make a big difference in your ability to maintain your diet. We should not, also, that many of these companies have packing conducive not only to storing, but to travelling. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting friends, travelling for work, or going on a romantic getaway, you can still eat Paleo.
Even if you love to prepare and cook your own meals (some people find cooking cathartic!), there are many benefits to having meals delivered. Ordering pre-made meals allows you access seasonal produce from all over the United States. These local and national companies often maintain relationships with local farms and vendors and, through them, you can access ingredients that might be otherwise difficult to obtain.
What we hope this list conveys is that there are plenty of options available for looking to supplement their Paleo cooking with pre-made meals. Whether you’re interested in a long-term solution or a quick dinner option, you have plenty of choices. We hope you give some of them a try!
