The New Jersey based meal delivery company founded by Rudy D'Ambrisi wants to make clean eating easy. They believe that for optimum health, we should consume unprocessed and real foods. Therefore, they espouse that paleo has the following benefits which include: better fitness workouts, stability of blood sugar levels, burning of fat and balanced energy.

Their fresh ingredients are sourced locally from D’Ambrisi Wholesale Foods Warehouse and include organic poultry and grass-fed beef and produce. Organic produce such as fruit and vegetables reportedly contain an increased amount of  antioxidants and vitamins and minerals. Organic chickens are fed an organic feed, therefore there is no use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones or antibiotics.

Paleo Box Meals offer dishes that contain a variety of lean proteins to support muscles, healthy bones, and immune function. Protein also helps you remain satiated which can limit your desire to snack. Healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, fish oil, and grass-fed meat are high in omega-3s which can also keep your appetite in check. Healthy fats can also help you with fat loss by making your metabolism more efficient.

Parts of Southern California, as well as Los Angeles are places I've visited a handful of times over the years. Having first visited when I was around three years old, back in the late 1980s with my Mum to see my Dad who lived there.

My life would have turned out very different now if my family had moved over to Los Angeles from the UK permanently back then and this was a very real possibility at that time. I would have loved to have grown up in the sunnier climes of Los Angeles.
