If you follow the Paleo Diet, you know how rewarding it is to prepare a meal made from wholesome, all-natural ingredients. You’ve experienced the health benefits of eating grain-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free meals. You probably also know how time consuming shopping for and cooking these meals can be. No doubt you’ve experienced one or two nights in your week when cooking Paleo just isn’t an option.
We know moments arise when life gets a bit too complicated. You want to order takeout or delivery, but can’t be certain that your favorite restaurants or delivery services cook Paleo. Now you can be.
There are a few places in Columbus and the surrounding area that deliver Paleo meals right to your door. Below, we’ve created a wide-ranging list of local and national companies who offer options for Paleo customers. Read on to discover the many restaurants and services available to Columbus residents.
Local Paleo Food Delivery Columbus Options
There are some great restaurants and delivery services local to Columbus, and some local delivery services cater to all kinds of diets, Paleo included. Though these local services are smaller than their national counterparts, and many don’t exclusively cater to Paleo customers, there are still a host of options available to you. If you find yourself pressed for time on a weekday evening, you might choose to support Columbus’ food scene and give one of these places a try!
VidaFit, which offers an array of health services to the Columbus area, offers a “True Food Delivery” program in which they deliver healthy meals from scratch. Although they have three plans designed for more general gluten free diets, their Professional plan is described as having Paleo meal delivery options. It may take a little negotiation to let them know about your exact dietary requirements, but they offer all of the components needed to piece together locally delivered Paleo meals. Although not explicitly offered as part of their Professional Plan, they do offer options for organic produce, local poultry and wild caught seafood as part of some of their other plans, so there may be some ability to request these premium ingredients. All meal plans include a consultation with a nutrition consultant as well.

National Companies Offering Paleo Meal Delivery to Columbus
Ordering locally is a great option for people who like to cook, and who aren’t looking for many pre-made meals. However, if you know you’re traveling out of town, or that your week is hectic, or if you’ve never been a huge fan of cooking but still want to eat Paleo, you might try ordering from a national company – all of which ship food to Columbus.
There are many benefits to ordering from these companies: They create meals that are Paleo specific, sourcing local, organic produce, pastured and humanely raised proteins, and wild-caught fish. Their meals arrive fresh or frozen, and can be kept on hand for whenever you need them. If you’re following a specific Paleo plan like AIP, sugar-detox, or Whole30, you might be hard-pressed to find a local company that offers dietary options adhering to those requirements. But most national companies on this list offer options specifically towards customers on specialized Paleo plans. Read on to see which of these companies might appeal to you.
Paleo on the Go
Paleo on the Go is a popular Florida-based company that personally visits the farms from which they source. Their plans are highly customizable, and include options for those who need AIP specific meals, sugar-detox plans, or the thirty-day elimination challenge. Paleo on the Go is one of the few companies that allow you the opportunity to purchase single meals. You can buy anything: an order of lemon-blueberry muffins, an AIP strawberry vanilla cake, or a whole 30-day elimination meal plan. The company has been highly rated, both by bloggers and Paleo-centered institutions. Their food arrives at your doorstep ready to be heated and served. If you spend over a certain amount, (easy to do with all the appealing options!) your food ships free.
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.

Trifecta, one of the largest companies on this list, offers Paleo, Clean Eating, Vegan, and Vegetarian meal plans. The company advertises its services to those looking to supplement their active lifestyle with clean, healthy eating. Their meals are 100% organic, and their proteins are humanely raised. While the company mostly promotes its meal plan, it has an option that allows customers to buy bulk items a la carte. This is perfect for those who wish to portion their meals themselves. One of the best things about Trifecta: They offer free shipping to the Columbus area.
See trifectanutrition.com for current prices for their Paleo and organic meal delivery Columbus offerings.

The Good Kitchen
The Good Kitchen is one of the companies that require their customers to purchase a meal plan. However, for first time customers they offer complimentary meals as well as a complimentary order of their popular add-on, bone broth. Like many companies on this list, the North Carolina based Good Kitchen sources locally and uses grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and antibiotic and hormone-free chicken, as well as organic produce. For those who are Vegetarian and Vegan, they offer a wide range of menu options. Their prices are based on meal count, rather than meal content, and they allow you to create your meal plans from their extensive selection of menus (chicken, seafood, vegetarian, vegan, etc). Like Trifecta, The Good Kitchen ships free to Columbus.
See thegoodkitchen.com for The Good Kitchens complete menu and list of healthy meals delivered Columbus / nationwide plans.

Eatology creates a selection of Paleo meals that follows the Zone diet (which focuses on weight loss and macronutrient balance). The company is one of the more affordable options on this list, and prices their food based on blocks (portion sizes) instead of content. A two-block meal is $10.50 and a 3-block meal is $12.75. If you’re feeding a family, the company also offers a “party platter” which contains twelve blocks of food. Eatology requires that you purchase a meal plan, but they have changing, monthly discounts, and discounts for customers who purchase recurring meal plans (you can sometimes save up to 20%). Their meals contain no added sugar, and last in the freezer for up to six months.

For those interested in the Whole30 diet, Pre-made Paleo specializes in Whole30 meal plans (including AIP, Sugar Detox, and family centered plans). The company has been around for a while and has a whole host of interesting menu options that you can order a la carte or as part of a plan. Besides their Whole30 plans, the company is known for their rotating specialty items, which often include hard-to-find ingredients like wild boar sausage, alpaca, or water buffalo. They offer a unique selection of add-ons like rendered fats, oils, snack mixes, and spices. While the company used to only ship frozen meals, they’ve recently added an option for freshly shipped meals.

Pete’s Paleo, a Southern California company, maintains close ties to local farmers and offers seasonal, fresh, organic ingredients. Their company is so local, that their menu changes based on available seasonal ingredients; so if you plan on ordering frequently, and like variety, Pete’s is a great option for you. The company’s services have been featured on a variety of television programs and in newspapers and magazines. Because their food is naturally sweetened by fruits and vegetables, they’re a great company if you’re looking to try a 21-day sugar detox. They also offer a plan adhering to the Wahls Paleo requirements.

Caveman Chefs was founded by a group of chefs whose experiences range the restaurant and catering industry, so they understand the importance of catering to their customers’ specific needs. The company maintains close ties with its local Colorado community, sourcing their produce, meat, and fish from Colorado farms and vendors. They are one of the few companies that allow for individual customization of meals and meal plans. You have the opportunity, when you order, to specify dietary restrictions and food allergies. While they offer several locations in the Denver area for food pick up, they also offer to ship meals to the Columbus area.

Creating a lifestyle that incorporates wholesome, all-natural food might seem difficult, but it only takes a bit of preparation to maintain healthy eating habits. We’d be remiss not to mention that many of these national companies offer packaging useful for travelling. If you’re heading out of town and want to take your diet into consideration, you might order a few meals to take with you. However, if you’re looking to sponsor the local restaurant communities when you leave town, check out read our other articles (which detail Paleo delivery options in other US and Canadian cities).
Complementing your home cooking with the occasional pre-made meals can make following the Paleo diet a lot less stressful and time consuming. Even if you love cooking, or find the process of creation cathartic, it can be useful to have some go-to options for meal delivery in case the occasion calls for it.
We hope this list has provided you with a number of options for pre-made Paleo meals. The services we’ve listed maintain close relationships with local farmers and can often access ingredients that may otherwise be difficult for you to obtain. We recommend giving any one of these restaurants and companies a try!
