Ice Age Meals

Posted: Updated:

"This is our chipotle turkey chili with butternut squash,” Nick Massie says as he directs us into his industrial kitchen.  His food is made with high-quality, locally sourced vegetables and grass-fed, organic meats. It is a perfect recipe for those who subscribe to the Paleo lifestyle.

Nick, who is also known as “Paleo Nick”, has spent much of his life in the kitchen. "Started as a dishwasher at 14 years old and now I'm 35. So I've been doing it 21 years." Nick’s culinary training connected him with elite athletes; he was a private chef for Lance Armstrong before starting his own business which is based on two nutritional philosophies - the Paleo and Zone diets. "The Paleo diet is really meat, vegetables, fruit and healthy fat.” He adds, “The higher the quality of all those - the better." Nick then combines Paleo with the Zone theory of measuring macro-nutrients; each meal is 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 30% fats. "There's not really a quantity that's addressed in Paleo diet; it's just quality. So people can kind of go overboard. You can do the Paleo desserts that are full of fat."

Nick blended the plans and came up with Ice Age Meals. "We take care of the calculation for you." His business is based out of Reno in Caughlin Ranch. Along with creating 500 calorie meals, which are shipped to all 50 states, Paleo Nick also has quite a following online. He posts new cooking videos every week to teach you how to eat well and burn fat as fuel. "Even a basic thing like learning how to make mayonnaise with eggs, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil." It is because of Nick’s simple, sweet and savory secrets, that Ice Age Meals is heating up with viewers. Orders from all around the country and now with the new storefront, Paleo Nick hopes to get Northern Nevadans healthier, too.

You can order meals online at http://iceagemeals.net/ or in person at 4782 Caughlin Parkway #503 in Reno. Meals at the storefront are $9.99 each. You also have the opportunity to order in bulk.
