Robb Wolf's Paleo Brands is now up.

I prefer my food to be fresh, and I actually like cooking. But... having a few of these in the freezer might be a good idea when you are "in a pinch."

Some of the ingredients reveal small amounts of non-approved things, e.g. canola oil, but Robb is a solid guy and no doubt these are worlds better than the SAD frozen dinners. Apparently, they are only serving the west coast for the time being, but plan to expand to the rest of the country once they are up and running.

Well he mentions "ingredientS" with an s...So I figured he meant all of those offenders.

Is this a question? I thought we were only supposed to post questions here.

Yes but there is still the canola oil issue.

jerky is also "grass fed with oats and hay" and the meat is not organic (hello antibiotics!).

Exactly. I could buy a pint of grassfed heavy cream for 3.50 and get 1600 calories out of it.

I expect to get at least 1000 kcal out of $9

Or do you mean 1/3 of your daily spend on meals?

Patrik, I like that we usually seem to be on the same wavelength. If you ever need some help managing the site, shoot me a note.

$9 is a lot to pay for a third of a meal.

Quote from Robb, from Melissa's blog:

"Let???s tackle a few things here, the first being the soybean oil in the meal. This was, a complete fuck-up. We had recipes which contained nothing like this, we had someone working on finalizing the meals???and this person allowed our manufacturer to add ???seemingly innocuous??? ingredients like soybean oil. I had a fit, the person was fired and the meals were already in production. So, y???all appear to be looking for a Pound of Flesh, so here it is: I take full responsibility for this, it???s my fault. Melissa, if this is inadequate I???ll make myself available for a kick to the groin. Our next iteration of the meals will NOT have ???seemingly innocuous??? ingredients, but Dr. Harris is not a fan of Olive Oil so I suspect this will be an ongoing 'thing'."

eh. I like Robb Wolf but all this stuff looks unappealing. If you can defrost a meal you can bake some spaghetti squash and make a meat sauce. it's not hard.

And on further investigation...the food has a bunch of junk in it. Soybean oil? This is lame.

Cauliflower Leek Puree (cauliflower, leeks, mayonnaise (soybean oil, egg yolks, whole egg, water, distilled vinegar, contains less than 2% of salt, sugar, lemon concentrate, calcium disodium edta added to protect flavor, natural flavors), spices, black pepper, xanthan gum) Almond Crusted Cod, (rockfish, blanched almonds, spices, cracked black pepper)l Spicy Vegetables, (onion, green bell peppers, tomato, olive/granola oil, jalapeno peppers, red bell peppers, fresh garlic, cilantro, salt substitute, [potassium chloride, contains less than 1% of cream tartar, silicon dioxide, natural flavor], paprika, garlic powder, celery seed, black pepper ) l CONTAINS EGGS, NUTS AND FISH.

Plus his jerky has sugar in it. Pass.
