I’ve enjoyed several meals from Paleo On The Go, including their delicious Thanksgiving feast, as well as several meal plans that I purchased on my own. It’s convenient for those nights when you don’t feel like cooking, or don’t have time, to pull something out of the freezer and have a “home cooked,” 100% Paleo compliant meal. It’s also great for people who don’t like to cook, or who find it overwhelming to try to prepare Paleo foods.
Paleo On The Go sent me their Beef Pot Pie for review, and I have to admit, I got really excited. I’ve been Paleo for more than eight years now, and I miss pot pie. Real homestyle pot pie. I’ve attempted to cook it a few times, but I never could get the crust quite right. So my hopes were high as I popped this pot pie into the oven. When I pulled it out, it smelled like actual, real pot pie, so much so that I literally dug right into it with a fork. It looked like real pot pie, too.
The cassava flour crust is probably the most impressive element of the pot pie for a few reasons. First, if you’re a pot pie connoisseur like me, you know that the crust is essential for the full pot pie experience. It has to be both flaky and soft, while having that nice browned crispness on it, too. It needs to be thick enough to get the job done, but not like biting into a pile of dough. It also needs to have real, bread flavor, and not taste like Paleo flour exploded all over your meal. Paleo On The Go nailed their pot pie recipe. The beef and vegetables in the pot pie were nicely varied and balanced, with good flavor (although I added salt to mine).
(This brings me to a side note: None of POTG’s food is overly salted, so if you are sensitive to salt or need a low-salt diet, their food is perfectly compatible for you. I happen to love me some Himalayan sea salt, and by adding a bit to my POTG food, it perfectly suits my palate.)
POTG’s beef pot pie was also very filling, and was an excellent complete, one-dish meal. Frankly, I want to stock my entire freezer with their pot pies so I can enjoy them on a weekly basis. There’s nothing like sitting down to a homecooked meal that I didn’t have to cook, but that I can feel wholeheartedly good about eating. Paleo is important to me as a healthy lifestyle, but it’s also essential for my autoimmune health issues. I’m so glad that there is a company who provides this home-cooked service for the Paleo community.
