A major tenet of the Paleo Diet is making food from scratch with healthful, organic ingredients. And while the process itself can be very rewarding, it can also be very time consuming. There are inevitably times in your week when your schedule breaks down and you need help staying on track with your diet. As Paleo becomes a full time lifestyle for many people, there are more and more options for you to order pre-made Paleo meals.
There are actually a good number of options for those living in the Pittsburgh area to get Paleo meals delivered to your door – meals comprised of high quality ingredients and adhering to Paleo’s grain, dairy and sugars-free restrictions. Many of these companies both those based right in Pittsburg and those outside of the city are involved in their local food communities and work with organic farmers to source high quality ingredients. You don’t have to worry about staying on track with your diet. You can gain a bit of time in your day and still eat Paleo! Read on to see all the options available to you.
We cover the following....
Local Paleo Food Delivery Pittsburgh Options
Below are all the local companies and restaurants offering Paleo delivery meals to residents in the Pittsburgh area. Because many of these places cater to a variety of customers, their menus are not exclusively Paleo, however each of these places has Paleo options on their menus. These places are great if you need a last-minute solution to dinner. If you’re interested in supporting your local food community, check one of these places out! We hope you’ll be able to find something that meets your specific need.
Girl Friday Cooking Co.
Girl Friday Cooking is a local service started by a group of friends in the Pittsburg area specializing in Paleo and “Clean” menu items. Although the primary focus is on Paleo and Primal foods, you do have some choice in the sides offered with each meal and they do offer some flexibility to choose non-Paleo options. They offer both delivery, once a week, as well as pickup options from local pickup locations. For the weekly food delivery, they do require that you are home during the delivery period or leave a cooler out to keep the meals cool until you return. If you are interested in working with a small local company, Girl Friday Cooking could be just what you are looking for.

If you are looking for an even more personalized option, one of the local Pittsburg catering/personal chef companies, Relish Kitchen, offers Paleo as one of the meal plans they are able to cater to. You’d be working directly with the owner, Chef Kim, on crafting meals that meet your dietary requirements. As this is closer to personal chef services, she does break costs down by both the price to make the food as well as grocery costs, so per meal it tends to be a bit higher than your traditional meal delivery service, but for those who have very specific dietary needs this might be a good option. She offers free delivery within a 7 mile radius of her kitchen in South Hills.
