How did you find Primal Living STL and what part of St. Louis do you live?

I live in Webster Groves, and found Primal Living searching meetup.

What got you interested in the Paleo/Primal diet? How long since you adopted this lifestyle

Both by recommendation by personal trainers I've met, and trying to control my sugar cravings by eating a low-Glycemic index/load diet. I've been doing great for almost 2 months as of June 2011.

What would you like to see us do at the meetups ?

Potluck meals, food/herb growing tips, sharing recipes. Potluck campouts would also be fun!

What issues do you have with the paleo/primal lifestyle?

I have survived for 44 years on junk and sugar. It is VERY hard to eat on the run. I recently did a detox/sugar reset. It is working beautifully - no carb cravings! If anyone needs the rep's name and number, let me know!

What is the next step you would like to take to live more primally?

Find better recipes, that are easy to prepare and transport on my 'busy' days.


I've been trying to maintain a more natural diet, free from highly processed foods. Unfortunately, sometimes I try something that sounds tasty, but it's . . not. I've found the easiest way is to try dishes others have made, then beg for the recipe!
