BEST PALEO MEAL DELIVERY

Trifecta

By Nell Stephenson, Paleoista

Not only is it not pretty, foods deemed as being convenient are one of the top factors contributing to our growing obesity rate.

The National Center for Health Statistics at the Centers for Disease Control looked at data on American size between 2005 and 2008 and found that it’s convenience, rather than cost or a lack of education that is making Americans fat. [i]

We all know we’re better off choosing some freshly steamed broccoli and a piece of wild salmon with olive oil drizzled on top instead of a prepackaged frozen meal, but for many this doesn’t translate into action.

With our hectic pace of life, we’ve created a situation in which what we eat, where it comes from, and how it is sourced ranks so low on the totem pole that for many, heading to the farmer’s market or cooking a meal at home has become a tedious chore.

In fact, Americans eat 31 percent more packaged food than fresh food, and they consume more packaged food per person than their counterparts in most other countries. A sizable part of the American diet is ready-to-eat meals, like frozen pizzas and microwave dinners, and sweet or salty snack foods![ii]

No wonder we’re in the throes of an obesity and diabetes epidemic. If America's obesity trend continues at its current pace, all 50 states could have obesity rates above 44 percent by 2030[iii]

95% of people who lose weight regain it, and sometimes more, within a few months or years

While the current statistics are grim indeed, making significant improvements to our overall health as a society isn’t as daunting as it might appear.

The first step in making permanent change is having a genuine desire to do so and according to Gallup[iv], 51% of Americans want to lose weight.

The next question that arises then, is how?

With a ‘diet’ failure rate of almost 100% (95% of people who lose weight regain it, and sometimes more, within a few months or years)[v], it’s easy to understand why many end up throwing their hands up in frustration and go back to the not so healthy eating habits that led them toward being overweight in the first place.

This is precisely why a Paleo inspired approach to eating can be the ticket to a lifetime of optimal health, the perfect balance between eating foods that actually taste good and are good for you.

Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t have to be a choice between healthy eating and enjoying your food!

 

Real Deal with Paleo

With all the hype in the media these days, it’s easy to end up thinking that eating bacon every day or snacking on Paleo-ish treats made of honey, dates, almond flour, and shredded coconut are part and parcel of the regime.

In actuality, some pasture raised, uncured bacon as well as a special occasion treat now and then can certainly be a part of the lifestyle…but not every day!

All it is, is a focus on eating produce in season where you live, combined with lean, ethically sourced proteins and a nice dose of healthy fat.

Not too tricky, is it?

Some examples of meals might include poached wild salmon and a pepper, mushroom, and onion sauté for breakfast; a mixed greens salad with avocado and olive oil, topped with some grass fed flank for lunch; and a raw kale salad with roast chicken for dinner.

 

You owe it to yourself to treat your one body like the temple that it is, so start with nourishing it with real food.

 

As I often write on my own blog, a real paleo diet is simply about eating real food and not eating things that are not food!

This type of eating plan offers endless combinations of any and every veggie you can possible think of with your choice of wild fish, pasture raised poultry and pork, grass fed beef, game meat and a heck of a lot of delicious, good-for you fat.

And this very type of diet mimics what our paleolithic ancestors ate using foods easily accessible to us at our grocery stores, farmer’s markets, and even our own backyard gardens.

It’s alkaline, anti-inflammatory, an excellent choice for permanent weight loss, safe for people of all ages to follow, and highly correlated with healing numerous health conditions ranging from mild to debilitating[i].

Call it Paleo, or call it simply eating properly. It’s one in the same and this common sense approach to healthy living has proved, in my experience of working with clients over decades from all around the world, to be the number one thing that’s helped them implement permanent change.

Now, let’s address the practicality of it.

Perhaps you’ve read Dr. Cordain’s work and truly believe all the science behind Paleo and would like to give it a try, but you simply cannot find the time to shop and cook as often as you need to.

 How It Works for Us

Unlike the phrases I opened the article with, food delivery services don’t tend to conjure up those unfavorable, unhealthy images that processed foods or junk foods do.

Depending on where you live, you may have access not only to several meal delivery services; you may even have a few Paleo options.

As such, you might be wondering what sets Trifecta apart from the others?

I did, too.

In all honesty, I’ve tried a couple of the more popular Paleo food delivery services and found them all to fit the bill of serving the purpose. They tasted alright, and I didn’t have to worry about hidden gluten or dairy lurking in my meals.

But they were plain. And some were frozen, which meant I’d have to either microwave them (no, thanks) or fuss around with heating them up in a pot. It made them less than convenient for anyone who might wish to bring their meals to work.

 

Call it Paleo, or call it simply eating properly.

 

As a consequence of the food being not more than ok at best, my predominating concern was that customers might mistake paleo as a whole as being boring and therefore, not sustainable long term.

So when I was invited to tour the Trifecta facility and see with my own eyes the immaculate kitchens, speak with the owner about the sourcing, and taste test some of their offerings, I knew right away this was the best option I’d seen for fresh, organic, real Paleo meal delivery.

Whether you’re someone who’s got zero time on their hands for shopping and cooking or someone who simply needs to fill in the gaps during some particularly busy times, you’ve simply got to check Trifecta out.

Don’t let lack of time be your excuse for not eating healthy food any longer.

You owe it to yourself to treat your one body like the temple that it is, so start with nourishing it with real food.

Say good-bye to the junk and feeling lethargic and hello to your path toward optimal health.
