Editor’s Choice Award: Paleta Allows Couples to Have Farm-to-Table Meals Delivered to Their Doors

The Short Version: It isn’t always easy for couples to stick to special diets. Whether they’re following a keto plan or going gluten-free, they could spend a lot of time and energy planning, food shopping, and cooking. That’s why Paleta delivers delicious farm-to-table meals that fit a variety of tastes and lifestyles. The company provides organic meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options so couples can spend more time together. For making customizable meals that fit the fitness and wellness goals of couples, Paleta earns our Editor’s Choice Award.

As couples spend more time together during the age of social distancing, they may get tired of spending a lot of their time cooking. They also may have cycled through their roster of go-to meals more times than they can count. They could get takeout, but restaurant food often doesn’t allow them to stick to a healthy diet.

That’s why many couples opt to have meals delivered from Paleta. For example, if they choose the Anti-Inflammatory Diet, they receive a breakfast of gluten-free oats, chia seeds, strawberries, and coconut milk. Lunch is a roasted butternut squash soup with ginger and turmeric. Dinner consists of roasted vegetables with basil pesto.

They also get snacks, including almonds and green tea, and anti-inflammatory products like dead sea salt and MCT oil.

Paleta delivers fresh, portioned meals, so people don’t have to worry about meal prep or planning.

“Our programming is great for couples who have different wellness goals but also for those experiencing cooking fatigue,” said Liz Mazzei, Paleta Marketing Director.

When customers order from Paleta, they know that all of their meals will be healthy, organic, and tasty. Consistent diets can make them feel good and appreciate not having to spend so much free time thinking about their meals.

Liz said that most clients are looking for ways to eat healthier without focusing all their time and energy on shopping and cooking.

“From professionals to stay-at-home-moms to celebrities, we have both men and women who eat with us regularly and have various goals. Some clients are looking to trim down while others are looking for more performance-related meals that will help them bulk up,” Liz said.

If individuals have different activity levels, diets, or preferred portion sizes, they don’t have to order the same plan. Instead, Paleta has many different options.

Customized Pre-Made Meals for Special Diets

Paleta offers several different plans that help clients achieve their goals. They include a keto diet plan, vegan and vegetarian plans, a gluten-free plan, a pregnancy plan, and an accelerated weight loss plan. Couples can also personalize plans to fit their lifestyles.

In the keto plan, for instance, they’ll receive breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks divided into two phases. When they start, they’ll be on a three-day Keto Kleanse that includes eggs, chicken, and fish meals, along with snacks.

After those three days, heartier meals like turkey and asparagus roll-ups, seared salmon and vegetables, and Thai steak salad entrees enter the menu. Many couples also turn to Paleta because they struggle with self-control and overeating. For couples who have set fitness goals, having a set portion can help them manage their eating.

Paleta offers a variety of entrees, snacks, and even desserts.

“We take the uncertainty out of the equation and allow couples to come together, share a meal, and enjoy a common experience. They also get to feel the joy of having a stocked fridge and support their body according to their individual needs. Plus, all the labor and decision making is removed from the equation,” Liz said.

Couples that order Paleta packages for fitness or weight loss may also enjoy more success because they have a shared goal. According to Psychology Today, “the mere presence of someone else affects your ability to do an activity,” including exercising or eating well.

That benefit is clear for many Paleta clients. And the company plans to partner with more fitness brands that want to let clients both train and eat together.

Helping Individuals, Couples & Families Reach Their Wellness Goals

For those interested in trying Paleta’s meals, getting started is easy. Couples who know what they want can order online. They can also get more advice from the company’s concierge team, which can help them decide if their diet needs fit into an existing plan or if they should design their own with the Perfect Plate program.

Liz suggests couples sit down together to decide the plan that fits their needs.

“The first things to consider are your health or wellness goals. That will help determine what the right program and portion sizes should be,” Liz told us.

For example, those who are not eating well and want to change their lives could try the 14-Day Kickstart: Trim program. Those who are active and already have a healthy diet might prefer the Market Menu and Performance plan.

Couples can select their meals based on their lifestyles or dietary restrictions.

Once they choose a plan, meals will arrive on their doorstep at night so they can eat breakfast when they wake up. Unlike other companies, Paleta isn’t a meal-prep company; each entree comes already prepared.

“Not only are the meals perfectly portioned and healthy, but there is also no cooking, meal prepping, or cleaning up a messy kitchen afterward,” Liz said.

Paleta customers don’t have to sign up for long-term plans. They can try a 3-Day Trust Me Trial that delivers three meals, plus snacks and dessert. Then, they’ll have a better sense if Paleta’s options.

The company is currently offering a 20% off deal for new clients on their first order.

Shake Up Your Routine With Paleta

Though many of Paleta’s clients use the service to eat more healthy, the meals aren’t what many may describe as “health food.” Unlike bland, tasteless options that often come to mind when people think of that description, Paleta’s meals are flavorful and unexpected.

“Our menu has many international flavors and ingredients that make every day a different culinary experience,” said Liz.

Paleta is committed to delivering delicious meals that help couples reach their health goals.

Breakfast can include Tex-Mex chilaquiles, lunch may be grilled halloumi cheese, and dinner could be shredded lime chicken. A snack may be a summer roll with Vietnamese dipping sauce. Dessert isn’t boring, either, with options including dark chocolate brownie bombs.

Because of how tasty Paleta’s meals are, couples often tell Liz that they use Paleta meals to have date nights at home.

One client said, “Whoever the chef is, the food is unbelievable. I have little self-control and so glad for the portion-controlled meals.”

Another client added, “It’s been such a relief to get healthy, tasty food delivered safely and reliably in these uncertain times. Sincere thanks to everyone on the Paleta team.”

For couples trying to change up their routines during quarantine and beyond, Paleta is a delicious option. Many people are looking to simplify their lives once life returns to normal. Paleta meals can make dinner more straightforward, both in planning what to cook and dividing up the tasks that come with cooking and clean-up.

“With our meals, there’s no need to ask, ‘What do you want for dinner?’ There’s no back and forth about who will go to the grocery store or game of rock-paper-scissors to see who will do the dishes,” Liz said.
