A healthy diet is essential for overall health but can be challenging to maintain. Listed below are resources for meal plans and meal delivery to make healthy eating satisfying, stress-free and sustainable.
If you enjoy cooking, but need help creating weekly menus, choosing recipes, and shopping for ingredients, then a meal plan subscription can be extremely helpful.
Real Plans is designed to make it easier for you to get real food on the table. This online program creates new menus with kitchen-tested, family-approved, time-saving recipes each week that are fully customizable to your family’s size and tastes. They offer Paleo, Traditional, and Vegetarian plans. Real Plans costs only $6 per month if you sign up for the annual plan and offers a 30-day money back guarantee.
If you don’t like to cook, are too busy or too tired, listed below are two companies that offer home meal delivery programs with easy quick-to-prepare meals shipped to your door.
Pete’s Paleo offers gourmet ready-to-eat Paleo meals using local organic produce and sustainably raised animals. All meals are free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, legumes, preservatives, GMOs, artificial sweeteners, and natural sweeteners.

Pete’s Paleo also sells bacon that’s free of sugar, nitrates, and nitrites.
