I am friends with a partner of Hot Pot Smoothie Shop in Des Peres and was told there was a Paleo meetup that met there. Not sure if it is this one....but that is how I found you! I live in the Creve Coeur area.
I started low carb to lose weight, which didn't work no matter how many I counted. While looking up recipe's I found a link to Nerd Fitness, which is a blog/web site that is all about cross training and Paleo nutrition/lifestyle. I liked what I found about Paleo better than second guessing every carrot I ate, and after a 10 day juice fast I started on the Paleo path and lost at least twice in a couple months than I had with carb counting! I started with Paleo around April of 2013, so 4 months now.
I would love to share practical cooking, new ways to exercise, hiking (I LOVE HIKING!!), and community outreach.
Every day stuff....snacks, what to have when you just want to crunch something, feeding a picky child who hates cauliflower rice, but loves zucchini noodles. And by the way, what the heck do you eat with salsa now?! Also finding ways to "lift heavy stuff" without a gym.
I am ready to remember some part of the program I had forgotten in the past 2 months that made it incredibly important for me to live and eat better so I could be healthier and lose weight. It would be great to have others around me who know what the heck I am doing, to work out with and be accountable with.
This is the year of changes, being a Primal chick is one of those changes. Would love to be around others who don't ask "Whats Paleo?"
