The Paleo Diet requires that its practitioners avoid additives commonly found in prepared foods, so those who wish to strictly follow the Paleo lifestyle often have to seek out ingredients and prepare meals themselves. This process can be incredibly rewarding, but it can also be difficult to undertake, especially during those moments when life gets busy. When these moments arise in your week, it can be difficult to shop for and cook Paleo meals at home.
For those of you looking for a little help, like a pre-made meal or two to supplement your weekly cooking – look no further! There are actually quite a few options available to Minneapolis, Saint Paul and Minnesota residents. Below, we’ve compiled a list of national companies, as well as restaurants local to the St Paul and Minneapolis areas that deliver pre-made Paleo meals right to your front door. For those looking to skip meal prep occastionally and still enjoy wholesome, all natural food consistent with the tenets of Paleo, read on.
We cover the following....
Local Paleo Food Delivery Minneapolis Options
Days never go completely as planned. If you’ve given yourself time to make dinner, but find that time taken up by something pressing, there are a host of places in the St. Paul and Minneapolis area where you can pick up quick, and healthy meals. These chef delivery services in many cases work with local farmers and vendors, and use local produce. If you’re interested in supporting your local food scene, we’ve created a list of companies that offer Paleo options. While these local delivery services don’t always cater exclusively to the Paleo customer, there is hopefully something on their menu that appeals to you.
Origin Meals offers chef prepared meals that are gluten free, soy free, dairy free and low glycemic. They offer a strict Paleo meal plan that adheres to the tenets of the Paleo Diet for those who want to make sure they are following all Paleo rules. Origin Meals delivers to local gyms in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area as well as locations in other parts of Minnesota. They also offer deliver 3 times a week to homes and business addresses in the area. Meals are made with proteins sourced from specific local farms. Beef used in the meals is pastured. Produce is sourced from local seasonal sources when available, organic if available too. If you are looking for strict Paleo ingredients like all organic produce you may consider one of the national companies covered in this article, but if you like the idea of working with a local company that delivers meals made with meats from local farms from Minessota and local produce in-season you will want to look closely at Origin Meals.

National Companies Offering Paleo Meal Delivery to Minneapolis
Ordering locally is a good option for certain people, but if you want some additional options in terms of Paleo compliant meal choices, convenience, meal packaging, etc you might want to consider ordering from a one of the national Paleo meal prep services that deliver to Minneapolis as covered in this section.
Ordering from these companies often means scheduling food delivery in advance (it can take 2-5 days for food delivery) but there are many advantages to ordering meals from companies that cater exclusively to Paleo customers: 1) You can be certain these companies source from organic (often seasonal/local) farms, and use grass-fed, antibiotic and hormone free meat, wild caught seafood, and organic produce. 2) Many of these companies have options that appeal to specific Paleo plans like autoimmune Paleo, sugar-free detox, and combination Paleo-Zone dieting. 3) Each of the companies below will prepare your meals and deliver them express to your door, either fresh (and in cooler boxes) or frozen. All you need to do is reheat.
The Good Kitchen
The Good Kitchen sources their meal ingredients from seasonal local farms close to their kitchen and uses grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and antibiotic and hormone-free chicken, as well as using seasonal organic and sustainably farmed produce from farms and suppliers they have a relationship with listed on their website. The company requires that you purchase a minimum of five meals per delivery, but includes free shipping on all orders to Minnesota and offer a variety of options for customizing that plan to tailor your weekly or monthly needs (they also offer one-time orders with no commitment). TGK breaks their menu down based on the type of protein (beef, chicken, pork, fish) and even offer a Paleo and vegetarian line highlighting seasonal produce that can be a break from meat centric grain free/dairy free/sugar free meals. Their plans are based on meal count, not content, meaning when you sign up for a plan, your plan will cost the same regardless of which meals you choose.
