Frequently Asked Questions

The Sun Basket Paleo Meal Plan delivers everything you need to easily cook a variety of innovative, globally inspired dinners every week that adhere to the rules of the paleo diet.
Our paleo meals include the highest quality, responsibly sourced meats, wild-caught seafood, organic produce, and our house-made paleo sauces and spice blends.
The only thing you'll need from your own pantry is cooking oil, salt, and pepper.
Ultimately, the best way to lose weight is to cut calories, eat a variety of nutritious foods, and exercise regularly. Some dietitians believe that a paleo diet, with limited carbohydrates and plenty of whole, nutritious foods, can be an effective part of a weight loss regimen. Always consult a physician to determine the best weight loss approach for you individually.
Our Paleo Meal Plan is for anyone interested in eating unprocessed, whole foods, and is willing to adhere to some fairly stringent restrictions. Paleo can fit into a variety of lifestyles, and can be a good choice for athletes, those looking to increase energy levels, or people who want to eliminate processed foods from their diet. If you need to restrict intake of protein or fat for health reasons, a paleo diet may not be right for you.
Of course! Most of our meals can be prepared in about 30 minutes, and some 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, or just looking to reduce decision fatigue.
There are countless ways to make or buy paleo alternatives to non-paleo foods, from cookies and ice cream to sushi and noodles. However, many of these alternative foods, while full of paleo ingredients, can be highly processed. Stick to the basics. Keep whole foods on hand, like a piece of fruit or handful of nuts, for easy paleo snacking.

Why eat Paleo

Devotees of the paleo diet believe that the way our paleolithic ancestors ate—mostly protein, fat, and fibrous vegetables, and no processed food—is what our bodies are best adapted to metabolize. The paleo diet champions high-quality meats, such as grass-fed beef, and seafood as well as heart good fats and an abundance of produce. Many advocates report higher energy and a greater overall sense of well-being while on the diet. We encourage you to consult your physician or dietitian to determine if paleo is right for you.

What to eat: protein first, (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. Good fat comes in as a close second, with sources like nuts, seeds, coconut oil, avocado oil, and extra virgin olive oil as excellent choices. Vegetables are also key, as long as they're not too starchy. Avoid white potatoes, but most fresh veggies are fair game.

Suggestions for paleo breakfasts

Eggs are an excellent foundation for paleo breakfasts. Over easy, scrambled, poached, baked, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, made into an omelet—you name it. You can also experiment with paleo pancakes, using protein powder, coconut flour, or almond flour in lieu of white flour (tip: add baking soda and vinegar for a fluffier outcome). Chia puddings, sweet potato "toast," and paleo-friendly smoothies are also fair game.

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.

Replace:

  • 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. If you're just starting out, it may take some time to figure out what feels best. Maybe you just eat paleo after 2 p.m. on weekdays; maybe you are so hardcore, you get uneasy just looking at a slice of bread. Most of us fall somewhere in between. We're advocates of a more generally "paleo-based" system, following paleo principles most of the time, but making reasonable exceptions for important events or your mom's famous chocolate chip cookies.

The paleo persona

While paleo's most vocal advocates include committed athletes and fitness-first type of people, that doesn't mean that the benefits of eating paleo are limited to hardcore workout junkies. Paleo is great for anyone who wants pretty simple guidelines and feels their best on a diet rich in protein, fat, and greens. We always recommend eating the way that works best for you; there is no 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.
