It happened again: your day was running smoothly, going perfectly to plan, when suddenly something came up. You stayed at the office later than usual; you had to run a last minute errand; you had to help in a family emergency. Whatever the reason, you’ve run out of time at the end of your day to shop for and prepare a Paleo meal from scratch.

But running out of time doesn’t mean you have to fall off track with your diet. If you’re interested in finding a solution to the night of the week where cooking Paleo just isn’t feasible, look no further: we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ve detailed a series of options both local and national that deliver Paleo meals to residents living in Houston and the surrounding areas. Read on to find something that will work with your needs and your schedule.
We cover the following....

Serrano Peppers Health Kitchen
Serrano Peppers are a relatively small local business in the Houston area offering Paleo, Keto, Vegan and Vegetarian meal plans, all of which are gluten-free.
They try to encourage well-balanced meals by incorporating lean protein, fibrous vegetables and complex carbohydrates into all of their meals.
The only caveat in supporting this particular small business is that their meal options are quite limited, only offering three different Paleo lunch options and only one Paleo dinner option. However, their menu appears to change weekly to keep things interesting.
Serrano Peppers allows you to buy their meals seperately at the price of $12.50 for lunch and dinner dishes, and $10 for breakfast offerings, which are then shipped within 2-3 days of ordering.

Snap Kitchen is a local Paleo meal delivery service based in the state of Texas that offers ready-to-heat healthy meals. Snap Kitchen has the largest number of store locations in the Texas area, so even if you go outside of Houston, there is likely to be a Snap Kitchen location nearby.
Because there are so many Snap Kitchen locations, it’s easy for you to pick up orders from their kitchens, although they do offer a doorstep delivery service as well, which usually gets to you on the same day that you order from them!
The guys at Snap state that all of their meals are free from gluten, artificial preservatives, antibiotics, hormones and artificial colors and flavors, so you don’t need to worry about the quality of your meals, leaving you at ease and confident that you’re making informed food choices.
They concentrate on affordability whilst serving not only Paleo needs, but also Whole30 and Keto diet plans. All main meals are well-balanced, containing protein and lots of non-starchy veggies, with some complex carbohydrates for those who want a bit more bulk in their meals.
Farm Meals specialize in serving a wide variety of different customers and dietary requirements, including Paleo, SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet), Low-FODMAP, GAPS diet (Gut and Psychology Syndrome – initially a book written by Natasha Campbell-Mcbride for treating behavioural issues), Yeast-Free, Pegan, Keto, Vegan and Raw Vegan.
Farm Meals not only curates specifically for the individual, but offers organic, grass-fed/free-range beef and chicken bone broths as part of their products on offer.
It’s worth noting that Farm Meals serves only the Northern more suburban area of The Woodlands, perfect for those of you who might be slightly further afield from central Houston.
Healthy Gourmet are based in Houston, Texas, and ship both locally and to a number of other states, including but not limited to Louisiana, Oklahoma and Kansas.
Their menu is Paleo-friendly, whilst also considering the needs of other dietary approaches, such as Keto, low-calorie, dairy-free, gluten-free, low-fat, sodium-conscious and low-carb. The main difference between the Keto and low-carb approaches are the number of net carbs, with Keto-friendly meals containing fewer than 10g of net carbs per meal.
Examples of Paleo-friendly meals include Bacon & Spinach Omelette, Beef Bourguignon and Keto Shepherd’s Pie, although this is not all they have to offer.
Healthy Gourmet uses all-natural ingredients with no artificial additives or preservatives, with all dishes being cooked to order rather than batch-cooked. They also have no subscription service, meaning that you only buy as and when you need to.
