Frequently Asked Questions

The paleo diet, short for paleolithic diet, is inspired by the eating pattern of our early ancestors. (No, not like your Great Aunt Shirley...think a little farther back.) It focuses on consuming nutrient-rich whole foods and celebrates an abundance of meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and some nuts and seeds while limiting legumes, grains, and refined sugars. (Whew. Great Aunt Shirley mostly ate jello and gin.)
Sunbasket delivers everything you need to easily cook a variety of innovative, globally inspired meals that align with the general principles of the Paleo Diet. If you indicate that you follow the Paleo Diet, we will always assign you the meals that best match your preference, but you can always shop our full menu. We also can provide suggestions for modifying our other meal kits to meet your dietary needs.
Our paleo meals include the highest quality and responsibly sourced meats, wild-caught or sustainably raised seafood, organic fresh produce, and our house-made paleo sauces and spice blends.
Our paleo meals include no antibiotics, hormones, steroids, gluten, grains, soy, or dairy (with the exception of ghee). We steer clear of most legumes (beans/peas/lentils) but we do allow for the occasional pod (green beans, snap peas, snow peas). We keep sweeteners to a minimum. When we do use them, we go for natural, minimally processed options including honey, molasses, maple syrup, and coconut sugar. You’ll find Sunbasket paleo meals delightfully free of meal planning, grocery shopping, and stress. We send you easy-to-follow recipes with everything you need, assuming you can swing the salt, pepper, and cooking oil.
Our Paleo-Friendly meals are for anyone interested in eating unprocessed, whole foods and looks to avoid dairy, grains, and legumes. A Paleo Diet plan can fit into a variety of lifestyles and has become a popular choice for athletes, people who want to increase their energy levels, or those looking to increase the nutrient density of their diet. Head’s up, though: if you need to restrict your intake of protein or fat for health reasons, a paleo diet may not be the best option for you.
Well, you don’t need our permission, but...of course you can! Most of our meals––and not just the paleo diet plan meals––can be prepared in 30 minutes or fewer, and many have make-ahead instructions for even more expedient cooking. You can even select multiple orders of the same meal if you’re hosting a dinner party for your weightlifting buddies, looking to reduce decision fatigue, or just really, really love to do paleo diet meal prep. (No judgment here!)
As the paleo diet has continued to grow in popularity, countless paleo alternatives to non-paleo foods have become super popular and readily available, from cookies and ice cream to sushi and noodles (even bodybuilders need their cookie fix, right?). However, many of these alternative foods, while filled with paleo ingredients, can be highly processed. For best results, stick to the basics: keep plenty of whole foods like fruit or nuts on hand for easy paleo snacking.

Why eat Paleo

Paleo practitioners believe that the food our paleolithic ancestors ate—mostly protein, fat, and fibrous vegetables, with none of it processed—is what our bodies are best adapted to metabolize. The paleo diet champions high-quality meats (like grass-fed beef) and seafood as well as heart-healthy fats and an abundance of produce. Many paleo party peeps report higher energy and a greater overall sense of well-being while on the paleo diet. If you’re ready to try it out, do your homework and consult your physician or dietitian to determine if paleo could be a good fit for you.

What to Eat: Platefuls of Protein, (Good) Fat, and Plenty of Produce

A paleo diet promotes high-protein recipes with responsibly raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free meats and poultry, and wild-caught, sustainably sourced seafood. Getting plenty of good fat is almost as important, with sources like nuts, seeds, coconut oil, avocado oil, and extra virgin olive oil as stellar choices. Vegetables are also clutch, as long as they're not too starchy.

Paleo for Breakfast

We’ve all seen Rocky Balboa pounding his pre-dawn raw-egg-smoothie delight, so it comes as no surprise that eggs are an excellent foundation for paleo breakfasts. Over easy, scrambled, poached, baked, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, made into an omelet—it’s all good. You can also swap out white flour for protein powder, coconut flour, or almond flour to experiment with paleo pancakes (tip: add baking soda and vinegar for a fluffier outcome). Chia puddings, sweet potato "toast," and paleo-friendly smoothies have also been known to pack a punch. Yo, Adrian, your breakfast is ready!

Suggestions for Smart Paleo Substitutions

If you're just getting started with the paleo diet, you may want to have a few tricks up your sleeve to imitate your old favorites.


  • rice with riced cauliflower or broccoli
  • store-bought sauces with homemade paleo ones
    (there are plenty of online resources to find your favorite) or one of our Signature Sauces
  • toast with sweet potato toast
  • pasta with zoodles or other spiralized vegetables (spaghetti squash also works nicely here)
  • butter or cream spreads with nut creams or avocado

Approaches to Paleo

There's no one "right way" to do paleo. It may take some time to figure out what feels best for you. Some people only eat paleo on weekday afternoons; other people are so hardcore that even just looking at a slice of bread makes them feel guilty. (Paleo pros call this “rye eye.” No, not really.) Most of us fall somewhere in between. Here at Sunbasket, we believe that as long as you embrace nutrient-rich whole foods most of the time, it doesn’t matter which meal plan you follow. Countless studies show that overly restrictive diets backfire, as they create guilt and shame around eating, cultivate cravings, and trigger a restrict–binge relationship with food. For this reason, we are advocates for an all-foods-fit judgment-free zone that allows for flexibility to live and enjoy life. Guilt is not an ingredient in our recipes––keep it off your plate!

The Paleo Persona

While paleo's most vocal (and most beefy) advocates include committed athletes and fitness-first juggernaut types, that doesn't mean that the benefits of eating paleo are limited to hardcore workout junkies or gym rats. Paleo can be a great meal plan for anyone who can roll with somewhat simple guidelines and feels their best on a diet rich in protein, fat, and greens. No matter what, we will always recommend that you eat the way that works best for you; there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach. Paleo is a great way to dip into clean eating, and with some trial and error you should be able to decide if it's an approach that works for you.
