Local Paleo Food Delivery Charlotte Options
This section covers options available right in the greater Charlotte area. If you are looking to patronize a local business, Charlotte has some great delivery Paleo and grain free delivery options. If you find yourself needing a last minute order of lunches or dinners for the week, they will likely have something that meets your dietary restrictions.
The Good Kitchen
Fans of The Good Kitchen will be pleased to know that they are based right in Charlotte, North Carolina! What started out as a Paleo-friendly meal delivery service now operates as a frozen meal supplier for Walmart locations as well as still offering their shipping services for their growing customer base.
The Good Kitchen is a great choice for pursuants of a Paleo diet, although they predominately advertise their Whole30-approved dishes (which by extension are Paleo-friendly due to the two diet’s shared values).
Their ingredients are always sustainably-sourced, with meat being either grass-fed or pasture-raised, and supply gluten free, clean eating, paleo, ketogenic, autoimmune protocol, and Whole30-approved variations to increase accessibility to all of their customers.
The price of their meals depends on how many meals you opt for per week as opposed to being priced on the product itself. For example, choosing a 10 meal weekly plan means that each meal works out at $13 each, whereas a 21 meal weekly plan equates to each meal being $11.

Project Lean Nation
Project Lean Nation are a local business based in the Charlotte area, with stores also in Buffalo, Charleston and Rochester. Their focus is on macro-balanced dishes suitable for people who are more athletic or have specific body composition goals.
They offer a number of Paleo-friendly meals such as Paleo Powercakes, Bacon Bleuburger and Barbacoa Beef. Although they don’t solely provide for the Paleo population, they have many dishes suitable to choose from.

For the Paleo practitioners among you that are looking for more ‘plant-forward’ or meat-free meals, Nourish will work to create delicious, gluten-free and vegan (therefore dairy-free) meals for your busy schedule. While this is not exactly a Paleo service, we thought we’d include them on this list for those who are looking for something Paleo-adjacent.
Nourish uses organic, pesticide-free produce sourced from local farmers and are forward-thinking in the way that they prepare and package their products. Their kitchen creates 90% less refuse than other kitchens in the US, and they ensure that their food packaging is totally biodegradable and recyclable. This is a great choice for people who want to decrease their carbon footprint and support sustainable businesses.
Nourish offers both meal plans and an a la carte menu, meaning that you can reap the benefits of an automatic weekly delivery service, or order as and when you need a quick lunch or dinner fix. It’s worth noting that Nourish offers a complete menu including juices, breakfasts and side dishes, so nothing goes amiss, and they also only use low-glycemic sweeteners such as coconut sugar and maple syrup instead of refined sugar.
