Sorry, this month's potluck is cancelled.
FYI -- We will be looking for a different night, day of the week to hold our potlucks.
We would love to hear your suggestions.
Thank you, and Happy New Year!
Join us for our monthly paleo potluck.
Convert your favorite dish (appetizer, soup, salad, entree, sides, desserts, snacks) to one that meets our paleo guidelines. Need help? -- give me a call, drop me a note, I'm here for you.
Our monthly potlucks are for those who eat meats and lots of veggies. We are conscious eaters: portion control, intermittent fasting of specific food items, sustainable, clean, local, organic. Some of us eat dairy, some occasionally eat grain.
Scroll down to see Who's coming, our Agenda, and What to bring.
During our potlucks our conversations include: adapting Paleo to you/your lifestyle, the various degrees of being Paleo, being a vegetarian or vegan on a Paleo diet. Where do you draw the line? ...will Paleo be 100%? 80%? 60% of your diet? ...no grains? ...no milk products? ...little-to-no processed foods?
Start time is 6:30pm, arrive early is okay -- just let us know in advance.
Please RSVP. It's important to me as a host to know how many people are coming. And it's especially helpful to know what type of food you'll bring so that me and others can plan accordingly. Contact me if you want to arrive early to prepare your dish, an hour or two earlier is most times okay -- let's cook together! I have all types of cookbooks, kitchen gadgets, and of course pots, pans. Oh, and just to let you know that I do not have a full-size oven, it's a smaller version.
Potlucks are free (see note about donations at the end of this announcement).
We'll meet at my home in Cupertino, near 280 and Foothill Blvd. I have a large meeting area: a 'great room' with a 10-person kitchen and big dining room. Bring warm clothing and we can hang out in the backyard with a waterfall, creek and lots of space, complete with a small and loving cocker spaniel and his 2-dozen-some tennis balls.

Past speakers and topics include:
"The importance of a slow-carb diet," by Brad Mouroux, DC. His discussion included the importance of a low/slow carb diet as it enhances your immune system, decreases the stress on your body, balances your hormones and, keeps you feeling energized instead of tired and lethargic all day. In short how a Paleo Diet could change you life! See website, above.
"Why Paleo - why try it, should you adopt it?" by Steve Fowkes, neurobiochemist. Steve will share his insights to help you decide if Paleo is right for you. What constitutes "Paleo." He will also talk about the problems of nonpaleo foods: milk, phytotoxins, grain allergies, and so much more. Read blog posts about Steve here, scroll down to the post called "About Steve Fowkes" to see the links to his website and YouTube channel.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
