If you’re looking to eat healthier, but just can’t find the time to grocery shop (or cook for that matter), then here’s a meal delivery service that’s worth looking into: Paleta. It started in 2005 in Executive Chef Kelly Boyer’s kitchen, and instead of being a vehicle strictly for weight loss, it focuses on serving nutritious, organic designer meals with ingredients from local farms, cruelty-free ranches and responsible fisheries. Plus, it’s so delicious that Felicity Huffman is a fan and had it delivered to the Desperate Housewives set.
Known for their Mind and Body Cleanse that ships nationwide, Paleta also offers different meal programs that deliver to the greater Los Angeles area. The Cleanse comes with meals, snacks, shakes, shaker-bottle, travel cooler and easy-to-follow instructions to guide you through it, along with daily tips on how to stay fit and de-stress by going for walks and getting your beauty sleep. On the cleanse, most people lose about five to 10 pounds, have more energy and even see an improvement in their skin and hair.
Paleta even offers a meal plan for kids, and a wide variety of cold, pressed juices as well as vegan options. The meal I tried included a Thai chicken salad, spring vegetable crudité, fresh pineapple, and a gluten-free cookie. The Thai chicken salad was full of healthy vegetables like snow peas, baby kale, roasted red onion and Valencia and blood oranges all mixed in a citrus sesame dressing. I loved the little burst of fruitiness and sourness that the oranges added to the overall flavor.
The vegetable crudité had a medley of vegetables like cucumbers, carrots and bell peppers that you could eat with the lemony hummus included, while the pineapple came with a delicious chocolate sauce and raw almonds. I was skeptical about the gluten-free cookie at first, but once I took a bite I was hooked. It was a Neapolitan cookie, so it had three different flavors like chocolate, strawberry, and something similar to coconut. It was also nice to finish off the meal with the pear and fresh berries they provided. Over all the meal left me feeling satisfied and healthy, rather full and frumpy.
