Wild Zora

Paleo Meals to Go - One Breakfast & One Dinner Meal

We all deserve a healthy alternative to all the sugary, high-carb snacks on the market.
At Wild Zora, we believe we can be in control of our diet and energy levels, eat healthier, and be happier!

In early 2011 our family started to learn about Gluten-Free, Paleo, and Primal food. We just didn’t feel good about feeding the typical sugary, grain-filled snacks on the market to our kids! When we’re hungry, our bodies crave lasting energy: something substantial, savory, and nutritious. Nothing on the market lived up to that standard. At home, we always considered meat AND vegetables a complete meal. So we started to mix and dehydrate 100% grass-fed beef from a local rancher along with fresh vegetables from our garden.  We discovered that we could make super tasty meat and veggie snacks that our family really enjoyed!

Four years after launching our first products, Zora met Dawn Anderson, Co-Founder of Paleo Meals To Go at a networking group in Northern Colorado for women entrepreneurs. It didn’t take long to discover there was a lot of synergy regarding our company goals and missions: we were a small, family business making dehydrated snacks from real meat & vegetables -- they were a small family business making dehydrated whole meals from real meat & vegetables. Partnering with Paleo Meals to Go was an obvious choice when we decided to expand our product line; their commitment to using only real food ingredients with no added chemicals or preservatives aligned perfectly with our mission and our existing customer base. So in early 2018 Wild Zora acquired Paleo Meals To Go, and now together we’re providing healthy, tasty, and convenient snacks AND meals to consumers across the country.

This box was pretty tasty. I especially was impressed by the greenbelly meal bar, it filled me up and gave me a lot of energy while hunting throughout the day. The energy chews and drink were my least favorite, while not bad in flavor, just not something I need or think is an essential, that proper hydration and actual food cannot take care of. The gorilly goods snacks were good, although not filling enough nor was the serving size very big. The wild zora meals I got were fairly good, however I do not regularly eat flax seed, so the breakfast meal was a bit different in taste and texture compared to granola. Looking forward to my next box, hopefully with more food items and less hydration or energy chews.
