Sticking to the Paleo diet doesn’t have to be hard. We’ll give you all the tools you need to make Paleo cooking affordable and delicious!
The Paleo Diet Made Easy
The Paleo diet may sound hard, but Cook Smarts makes it easy on your wallet, delicious on your taste buds, and simple for switching between Paleo and other diets whenever you want!
The perks of a Paleo diet
Many people go Paleo because they want to invest in better nutrition and health. By removing processed foods and additives from daily meals, many experience an increase in energy and weight loss (particularly when they keep starches and natural sugars in check). For some who eat a lot of packaged foods, the Paleo diet has been a good detoxification alternative as well.
Well-balanced Paleo recipes at your fingertips
We answer more questions regarding the Paleo diet below, but in a nutshell, when you cook and eat Paleo, you eliminate ingredients like grains, legumes, dairy, refined sugars, and processed foods. That may sound like a lot, but with our meal plan recipes, you won’t be missing any of these non-Paleo foods! We carefully craft each recipe so that each dish is filling, satisfying, and meets your nutritional needs. Most importantly, we do all the planning, so you don’t have to worry about what you can or cannot eat.
Here are just a few of the dinners you’ll find on our Paleo meal plan service!
Eating Paleo on a budget
If you look at the prices of health foods and Paleo meal delivery kits, it may seem like eating healthy is expensive. But it doesn’t have to be! With an average meal costing only $4, Cook Smarts makes Paleo cooking extremely affordable whether you’re cooking for one or for a whole family.
“I’ve always had the misconception that a Paleo lifestyle was expensive and the ingredients were always hard to find. Cook Smarts proved to me that I can make 16 meals (servings) a week for the low price of about $60 and ONE SINGLE TRIP to the grocery store.”
– Kitchen Hero Brodie M.

3. What are the health benefits of eating Paleo?
By removing processed foods and additives, many people experience an increase in energy and weight loss. For those who eat a lot of packaged foods and refined sugars, a Paleo diet can be a good detoxification alternative. Paleo meals also have some of the key elements of an anti-inflammation diet and diabetes diet.
4. What if I cheat on a Paleo Diet?
It all depends on your goals. If you want to go fully Paleo, then it is best to stick to the diet for at least 30 days to let your taste buds adjust and your body form new habits. Cook Smarts allows you to easily throw in a non-Paleo meal whenever you want, as well as choose to ease into eating Paleo by using a mix of non-Paleo and Paleo recipes every week.
The important thing is to listen to your body when you take a free day. Do you feel sluggish? Can you not do it in moderation? Do you now crave every processed food in sight? If so, find the right balance that still keeps you in control of your health and diet.
