Did you know you can get grocery home delivery service that allows you to follow the Paleo Diet, one of the world’s most demanding dietary regimes? The term “paleo” here refers to the Paleolithic era (caveman times), and thus the only foods you can eat are what a caveman would eat—just meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, regional veggies, and seeds (and definitely no pasta, cereal, or sugary desserts).
In Bangkok, the aptly named food service PaleoRobbie helps city slickers follow this ancient diet. The company was founded by brothers Erik and Robbie, from the Netherlands, and now serves specially prepared meals to over 400 people every day.
The interest in the Paleo Diet first took root when 24-year-old Robbie—who used to weigh a whopping 137kg—came to Phuket with friends, all on a mission to get in shape. The Paleo Diet worked wonders, and he lost 35kg in the first five months. Upon visiting his brother Erik, who was then living in Bangkok, Robbie found the food choices in this city to be vast in variety, but scant when it came to truly healthy meals.
Robbie then began cooking at home, and the brothers would invite friends who all happily came back for more. Soon there were 16 guests per dinner, and things just grew from there. People started to ask if they could use similar ingredients to cook at home, so the brothers decided to launch a grocery home delivery service. Now, four years later, business is booming. Healthy meals, made from scratch, are being delivered daily all over Bangkok, while hard to find healthy groceries can be delivered to homes nation-wide.
Delicacies such as wild caught salmon from Alaska, pasture-fed beef from New Zealand, and pasture-fed chickens from a dedicated chicken farm can all be delivered fresh to your doorstep. All items on the grocery are in line with the Paleo Diet, all meats come from ethically raised animals, and the Dutch duo also abstain from using any processed foods.
