Paleo Kit pre-order starts today!  Read on for all the details.  We will run the pre-order from Friday, March 24th through Wednesday, March 29th. After the pre-order, we will stock a select variety of Paleo Kits at the shop for purchase.

What is a Paleo Kit?
Paleo kits are pre-packed meals of grass fed beef jerky, dried strawberries and cranberries, and nuts including pecans, macademia nuts, and almonds.

Expensive you say?
Oh please.  Let’s compare the costs of a salad on the Pearl Street Mall, a grab and go lunch from Whole Foods, and a Paleo Kit. All meals bought for a Paleo/Zone female eating lunch.
1. Pearl Street Mall salad: $7.95
2. Grab and go lunch from Whole Foods: $7.02 (1 avocado, 1 peach, 1/2 cup bluberries, 3 ounces meat from the salad bar)
3. Large Paleo Kit: $6.15 (DING DING DING, WINNER!)

Not only are you making an economically informed decision when selecting a Paleo Kit over other “fast food” options, you are eating high quality ingredients, making a conscious decision to eat well even when on the run, and you’re supporting the youth athletes at Steve’s Club in Camden, NJ.  Take the time to click through and read about Steve’s Club.

When will they be here?
Paleo Kits will arrive the first week in April.  You will receive an email when they are available for pick-up.

What are the different kinds?
The Grass Fed are the “original” – beef jerky, nuts, and dried fruit
The Coconut are the “tropical” – beef jerky, coconut, and dried fruit (no nuts)
Just Jerky – beef jerky only

What do I use them for?
– a solid meal on the go
– help in a pinch
– long bike rides
– camping/hiking trips
– plane rides to avoid airport food
