Webster Groves. Heard about the group at the Primal Transformation seminar.
As I started having age-related issues, friends suggested giving up refined sugars and grains. Then they led me to the MDA blog, and others, and I did the Whole30. Was amazed at how my issues have been disappearing. Plus my migraines and tummy troubles that I always associated with "oh I must have eaten something bad." This was back in late summer last year, and although I failed to keep up with it over the holidays, I'm back on it, and my goal this year is to get so good at eating primal that I can get through the holidays without even wanting the things that make me feel so bad.
The farm visits sound great. I would really love to find a way to get more locally-grown food. Hiking, potlucks, and other activities sounded good too. Maybe group outings to local farmers markets? I hear there's a paleo cafe in West County, maybe a lunch there? Maybe meeting with some local chefs to encourage them to add paleo/primal friendly items to their menus so that we don't have to pick apart our plates?
Eating at restaurants and other people's homes becomes more of a challenge.
To do better at getting my activity levels up, to get accustomed to a more primal way of exercising. To develop more meal options so I don't bore my husband's tastebuds. To convince him that this would be great for him too. To grow more of my own food, but that's a challenge at my house...we are covered by trees.
Hi - I attended the Primal Transformation seminar, where Laci spoke about the group as an option for meeting others in the area trying to live a primal lifestyle. Some of the activities sound useful and fun, so I'm interested in joining.
