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

Webster Groves. Heard about the group at the Primal Transformation seminar.

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

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.

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

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?

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

Eating at restaurants and other people's homes becomes more of a challenge.

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

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.

Introduction

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.
