Choose Above the Grain and Face the Crave

Above the Grain, a meal delivery service that offers home-cooked prepared healthy meals, specializes in catering to customers seeking healthier meal options while living a busy lifestyle.
Opened in November 2012 by Jennifer Burns, the changing menu features items that are craved by many people but have been made with real food. Above the Grain follows the modern day Paleo style. Some of the sample menu items include Italian meat loaf with green beans, pesto chicken with sweet potato mashed, smoked salmon with asparagus.
Jennifer, who has always loved cooking, explained that her motivation to start the business came from her CrossFit coach. She was told she was going in circles by choosing the wrong foods and trying to exercise it away, therefore not seeing more results. “I had lost 95 pounds on my own before CrossFit, but switching to Paleo gave me the extra push I needed to actually feel healthy. It makes life so much easier than all of the fad diets I had tried in the past,” she said. “This is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle.”
Above the Grain offers fresh Paleo meals for those who either choose not to cook or just do not have the time. You can also book her food trailer for events to add a healthy option to your party. Above the Grain currently visits many local Bradenton/Sarasota events.
