Following the Paleo diet involves the task of constantly shopping for fresh ingredients and making all of your meals from scratch. For many, this can be the hardest part of the diet, since it is an everyday task and can be a major source of stress for those whose busy schedules are already too much to handle. But don’t worry, if you live in McAllen Texas or elsewhere in Hidalgo County, there are a variety of options available to help you keep your Paleo lifestyle in line.
The following guide will cover a number of Paleo meal services available to McAllen area residents, including seven national meal delivery services, as well as local businesses based in the Hidalgo County area which offer Paleo meals for pickup and/or delivery. These services all provide something different, but what they all share is a dedication to providing healthy Paleo meals made with the freshest seasonal ingredients available. Whether you’ve recently experienced a big change in your life, or are just constantly busy no matter what, trying any one of these options can give you some much needed room to breathe in your busy routine.
We cover the following....
Local Paleo Food Delivery McAllen Options
The first section of our guide will cover local companies based in the McAllen area, all of which offer at least a few Paleo meal choices on their menus. While not always dedicated exclusively to the Paleo diet, these companies can be a valuable resource if you need something to eat at a moment’s notice, as well as giving you an opportunity to support local businesses. These companies also use ingredients sourced locally in South Texas, allowing you to get meals with familiar local flavor without the hassle of having to cook them yourself.
Nutrition Made Easy
Nutrition Made Easy, based locally in Mission Texas, is a small meal delivery company that offers weekly and monthly healthy meal plans, with options like gluten free food, vegan food and other “specialty diets”. It may take a bit of negotiation with them to coordinate a full meal plan that fulfills the requirements of the Paleo Diet, but the majority of their gluten free meals focus on Paleo friendly ingredients, such as fresh salads, meats and spiraled vegetables. If you’d like to support a local company, you might give Nutrition Made Easy a call and see if their offerings meet your needs.

Beauty & Beast Cuisine
Beauty and the Beast is a local gluten free meal delivery service based out of Edinburg that delivers to McAllen and the whole Upper Rio Grande Valley area. Although only claiming to offer gluten free meals, in addition their meals are also soy free and use 100% organic and antibiotic free ingredients. However in terms of supporting Paleo meals, they request that you contact them to see if they can accommodate your particular diet requirements prior to ordering one of their plans. Beauty and the Beast Cuisine may be a great option for some, but it all depends on how strictly you are following the letter of the law of the Paleo diet and will have to be a personal, individual decision.
