About Us

Our Story

 Cyndy was a woman who suffered from migraines. She got them under control once by changing her diet, so when they started up again, she looked again at her diet. While reading various blogs, she found that more and more people were finding great success with the Paleo Diet.

“Why not give it a try,” she thought. A very short time later she was hooked. Not only did the headaches go away, but she had more energy, also gone were the mid-afternoon hunger pains, and low blood sugar crankiness. Plus she lost 25 pounds in four months! 

As she dived further into the paleo lifestyle, she realized that there were no paleo gift basket options available. Seeing a great chance to help her fellow cavemen and cavewomen, Paleo Gift Baskets dot com was born!

What is the Paleo Diet?

In a nutshell, it is a way of eating that avoids processed foods, grains, beans/legumes and sugar.

Our baskets include products that are as close to this as we can get in this modern time. We look for foods that are minimally processed, many are organic and we strive to use recyclable and Earth friendly packaging.

What our baskets DON’T have:

  • Wheat flour
  • Wheat gluten
  • Corn syrup
  • High fructose corn syrup
  • MSG
  • Grains
  • Grain flour
  • Cornstarch
  • Soy ingredients
  • Food coloring
  • Chemical preservatives
  • Hydrolyzed protein (of any kind)
  • Yeast extract
  • Autolyzed yeast
  • Carrageenan
  • Legumes
  • Trans fats
  • Partially hydrogenated fats
  • Heavily processed oils, such as canola or rapeseed oil

 

We try hard to find items without any added sugar, but a few do have some. These are primarily meat products including the smoked salmon and also any chocolates.
