Ocados Paleo shop

ocado paleoOcado, the online supermarket, has noticed a rise in Brits adopting the Paleo or ‘caveman’ diet, with sales of grass-fed meat up 73% YOY. Searches for unadulterated fish like organic salmon are up 58%; even the humble onion is in demand if it’s organic, with searches up 86% the last four weeks. To cater for demand, Ocado created a one-stop Paleo shop making it convenient for enthusiasts to get clean living essentials delivered to their kitchen table in handy one-hour slots.

Followed by celebrities and athletes such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jason Statham, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston and Freddie Flintoff, the Paleo diet is a modern nutritional plan based on the diet of Palaeolithic humans (cavemen). It’s ‘eating clean’ or consuming unprocessed foods and consists mainly of fish, grass-fed meat, organic eggs, vegetables, fruit, and nuts.

More than just weight-loss, the premise of Paleo is that human genetics have barely changed since the end of the Paleolithic era, when cereals and grains first appeared in our diets. By consuming foods we’re more adept at digesting, experts and enthusiasts report higher energy levels, increased defences against chronic illness and improved organ and heart health.

Ocado has partnered with Paleo expert Joy Skipper, author of new book The Paleo Diet Made Easy, to create the aisle so shoppers can browse for inspiring new recipe ideas and rest assured that all of their choices adhered to Paleo nutritional guidelines.

Joy Skipper said:

“Switching to the Paleo way of eating is very simple and once you start to cut out the foods your body finds hard to recognise, you will hopefully feel vitality and energy so you won’t want to go back to the way you were eating before. Ocado’s Paleo aisle is the perfect place to shop – all your Paleo essentials all in one place. With one-hour delivery slots, there’s no need to wait in all day to have your Paleo foods delivered – enjoy your day and know that great food is on its way to you, when you choose.”

The Fine Coffee Club

fine coffee clubYou love coffee, especially properly made coffee….not the instant variety…. It is estimated that 5% of the UK population (and more probably since Christmas) now have a Nespresso machine… but having the machine and then buying the coffee capsules for it are two whole different stories, as the expensive Nespresso branded refill capsules aren’t available to pop in your trolley at the main supermarket chains with your weekly shop.

Now, however, the Fine Coffee Club has the answer. An easy way to get your compatible pod refills with a tantalising array of the very best coffees in whatever strength and flavour is your particular fancy…..all at a price that’s around 20% cheaper than buying the branded version online.

Dark, medium or light roast, even decaf or lungo…we can do it all and we are the only company providing 100% Arabica coffee for the Nespresso system.
