I'd been researching paleo meals that I could buy pre-made so that my success wasn't totally reliant on my making my own meals. Let's face it - I'm a busy gal and I'm just not going to be staying in every meal and cooking. So when, My Power Supply reached out to try their service, I was excited. I'd be hovering over the "buy" button for their meals before, but there wasn't a super convenient pick up location near my house. Robert - the paleo/crossfitter cat behind My Power Supply - offered to drop off once at my office so that I could try it. And, THANK GOSH THAT HE DID! That first day back in the office, I was dying. And his Southwestern Taco Salad with Salsa and Guacamole saved me.

The next was a Chocolate Chili with Cauliflower Mash which I thought had a lot of promise, but I wanted more spice so I added a splash of my Woodberry Kitchen Snake Oil fish pepper hot sauce (you can buy it now in DC at Salt & Sundry) to punch it up.

The bottom line: Yes, it's pricey, but it's no pricier than eating out at restaurants and it definitely was more strictly paleo. Yes, the location for pickup might not be convenient (they deliver to Crossfit gyms), but in DC, there are quite a few locations. Much like doing the whole paleo thing as a whole, if you make the effort, you'll see the benefits. And, yes, it takes more effort. And sometimes - if you need an easy button like I did - more money. But, My Power Supply kept me on track and I plan to pick items that I'm pretty sure I'll like and continue ordering from them for a couple meals a week.
Here's the weekly menu if you want to check them out.
NOTE: In keeping with my Ethics of Food Blogging post back in 2010, I want to disclose that I did not pay for this week of food. It was a one time trial and any My Power Supply purchases moving forward will be on my own dime.
