You know those home meal delivery services you hear about actors using? I’m always being asked if I can recommend a good one, but I’ve never found one that I love (I’ve sampled about 3-4, mostly before I started the blog).
Paleta is an eco-conscious, socially-responsible Los Angeles-based company providing daily gourmet, customizable meals right to your doorstep.
I was invited to attend a special tasting this afternoon in Venice
An example of a typical days’ eats…
…delivered to your door:
That’s only offered in the Los Angeles area (and very soon, Orange County) but there IS one option that is available nationwide – their Cleanse Program:
My eyebrows raise whenever I hear the word “cleanse” but this one actually sounds sane, since you get to eat REAL FOOD in addition to their Brown Rice Shakes.
Speaking of food…
There was quite a spread!
Paleta caters specifically to your diet (vegan, gluten-free, athletes, kids, etc.) so there were many dishes reflecting the scope of what they’re able to do.
I tried everything – and it was all delicious! Simple, fresh flavors – they use organic and local ingredients whenever possible. I loved that their vegetarian menu is mostly soy-free, as well.
Polished off my plate, but was only able to make room for a little bit of dessert
I was sent home with more to eat – lunch leftovers and a goodie bag filled with snacks!
As if all that wasn’t generous enough, Paleta is giving me the opportunity to try their meal delivery for 5 days! Stay tuned for that review; I’ll be in good company – other actors who use their services include Adrien Grenier, Felicity Huffman, Molly Sims, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Jennie Garth.
