Paleo Kit Pre-Orders

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.

How do I pre-order?
Click here to place your order. Fill in your name and the quantity of each item you would like.  All pre-orders will receive a 5% discount.  There is a 5 order minimum per item type.

What’s the cost on these babies? Here are the pre-order prices.  After pre-order prices listed in parenthesis.  
Grass Fed Large: $6.18 ($6.50 after pre-order)
Grass Fed Small: $4.70 (available for pre-order only)
Coconut Large: $5.65 (available for pre-order only)
Coconut Small: $3.75 (available for pre-order only)
Just Jerky: $5.45 ($5.75 after pre-order)

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

    If you haven’t had these, they are fantastic! Ok, not fantastic in the way that finding a bar of dark chocolate with almonds and sea salt hidden in your pantry is fantastic. But I HAVE been almost as excited to find a paleo kit stuffed in the bottom of my camelbak on a long ride. For awhile, we had these stashed everywhere…car, work bags, sports equipment, desk at work. It was a sad day when our reserves ran dry. No, you won’t want to eat them for lunch everyday, but they are a solid go-to for a substantial snack and can get you out of a tight spot without sabotaging your nutrition. I find that I can stay pretty paleo with breakfast, lunch, and dinner; but I have a hard time at 3 in the afternoon when I’m hungry and dinner is still several hours away. Yes, I know; I should have planned for that. Well, I’m planning for it now…

    As to the cost, well, they are more expensive than a Snickers bar. And hopefully my husband doesn’t see this post and do the math on the cash outlay (sorry honey). But after packing lunches and snacks for my kids over Spring Break for all their activities, and having them tell me every day: “Mom, you have to pack us more food. We ate everything you packed and were still hungry”; I’m thinking that another healthy option to throw in the mix has to be a good thing. And the cost of a paleo kit pales in comparison to a trip down the snack food aisle at Lolitas with 3 hungry kids in tow…

    Can’t wait to try the ones with coconut!

    How much food is in each kit? I’m interested in these, but I’d like to have an idea of exactly how much I’d be getting.
