We send a text each week to confirm you would like to order.

We pick up bags and usable ice packs every week during our Sunday and Monday delivery hours. Do you have a bag for us to pick up but don’t need to order? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’d like us to stop by. You do not have to be home- simply leave your bag and any useable ice packs on your porch
Do you have nutritional information?
A list of ingredients is on each menu item and we are currently developing nutrition labels. We are also in the process of logging our meals into the My Fitness Pal app so if you cannot find the information you need there, please email us at email@example.com
Other prepared meals are less expensive. Why?
Simply put, the cost of local ingredients raised by ranchers who care about their animals’ well being and organic farming is more expensive than commercial ingredients. Since everything is made from scratch, our meals are often very labor intensive. For instance, our house-cured bacon takes 10 days to make per batch.
Our meals are designed for an athletic appetite. Inspired by Crossfit athletes, we know that a meal should leave you FULL without making you uncomfortable. It’s not uncommon for there to be leftovers if you have a lighter appetite and we offer a smaller portion on most entrees.
Imagine the cost of what you spend eating last minute convenience foods or eating at restaurants when you don’t feel like cooking. Then add in the cost of gas and the time you spent driving there, waiting in line, eating and driving home. How much is your time worth? Gourmaleo is designed to eliminate those last minute surprise expenses and make eating a healthy, filling meal as simple as opening your refrigerator door.
Gourmaleo meals are not bland meals prepared in bulk that sit on a cooler shelf for days. These are meals prepared by your very own personal chef where flavor and a high end experience is as much of a priority as our ingredients.
What kind of ingredients do you use?
All of our meats are grass fed, pastured, wild caught, and/or compassionately raised from local ranchers whenever possible. Giving you a direct connection to your food is one of our biggest priorities. Our produce is local and organic when available and we frequent various farmers markets to purchase directly from the farmers as often as possible. The fats we most commonly cook with are extra virgin olive oil, bacon fat, coconut oil, and grass fed butter in moderation. Our bacon is cured in house using pastured pork bellies from local hogs, giving you sugar free, 100% paleo bacon. Everything is made from scratch from the marinara sauce to the chicken stock made in fresh batches every week.
What if I have a food allergy?
Luckily a paleo diet eliminates many common allergens, however if you have an allergy all ingredients are listed under every menu item as you order. Please note that while we cook 100% grain-free and gluten-free menus and do not share our kitchen with other businesses, our kitchen is not certified as a gluten free kitchen. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
Can I purchase meals for someone else?
Absolutely. Gourmaleo is a great gift idea for new parents, when you’re in the middle of a move, or for someone who is in recovery from an injury or surgery. We sell gift certificates in $100 increments or you can order for a friend and simply enter their address for delivery.
