Dick's Kitchen offers 100% grass-fed meats, gluten-free options and local ingredients on their menu. Every week they have a guest burger, which can range from wild boar to elk to "dork" (a duck and pork mixture). One of my favorite menu items is their yam "not-fries". Let's enjoy their food, get to know each other and share ideas for this group.
Please note that Dick's Kitchen does not take reservations and will only seat a party once all members have arrived. So, please be on time.
Here's a video of the owner, Richard, who himself eats Paleo and has an anthropology background, speaking about why he created this "Stone Age diner":
We're a community exploring health from an evolutionary perspective. Hunter-gatherers, lean, fit and healthy, lived free of many of the chronic and degenerative diseases, physical ailments, dental decay and mental disorders modern, civilized humans experience. Anthropological findings provide insights in to the lifestyle of our ancestors that we can incorporate in to our contemporary culture such as: nutrient dense, local and organic foods, traditional meal preparation, intermittent fasting, optimal sleep, sun exposure, slow, strengthening and sprinting movements, play, social connections, baby wearing, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, natural cleaning and personal care products, time in nature and going barefoot.
Whether you call your nourishing lifestyle and real food approach Paleo, Primal, Weston A. Price, ketogenic, or a customized version of your own, this is a place to connect with like-minded people and find support on your wellness journey. Anyone new to these concepts or just curious what ancestral health is about is welcome!
