How it Works

PLEASE READ

What we do:
Primal Kitchen is a paleo-based ready-to-heat meal provider. Our clients order, we then cook & deliver fresh-chilled (NOT-FROZEN) meals twice a week to your doorstep.

Our food & meal options:
Eating paleo means eating the way humans have 200,000 years prior to the development of modern agriculture. That means a diet consisting of high-quality protein, good fats, and low-GI carbohydrates.

At Primal Kitchen we understand that a strict adherence to any diet can expose one to deficiencies and excesses. With that in mind, we take the best that paleo has to offer and the latest in nutritional science to make a variety of nourishing and satiating meals for our clients.

Each meal is made up of a 1 meat and 2 vegetable configuration.

They come in 3 sizes:

  • Regular (150g cooked meat component approx.)
  • Warrior (250g cooked meat component approx.)
  • Family (750g cooked meat component approx.)

Being Paleo-based, our meals are Gluten-Free by default.
We also offer Dairy Free, Nut Free, and Keto (low starch) options.
Just make a note of your food preferences in the order notes upon check out.

Each meal has reheating instructions on the lid for microwave and conventional oven.

How it Works
Ordering and Order cycle:
Our menu changes weekly and is updated every Monday when a new order cycle begins. Ordering is a week in advance, so please place your order before Friday 9pm for meals the following week. Delivery days are Monday/Tuesday and Thursday.
