Paleo Potluck at the Hunting Lodge!

  • Apr 17, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Bring a paleo dish to pass and enjoy some great conversation at the old hunting lodge in Grandville built in 1912!

Here are some suggested snacks to bring:

But, if life is too busy & you need something quick and easy, that's ok too (nuts, veggies/dip, etc.). Our hope is to try different kinds of paleo foods you normally don't get a chance to eat.

Note, there will be a $5 charge to help offset the Meetup Administrative fees. You can just bring the payment to the meeting.

    Hi everyone! I am new to this wonderful group. I noticed the RSVP's are closed. I do plan to attend tonight if that is ok.

    Ellen brought a bread. So here is Ellen's recipe for cinnamon bread. It was real good and had the texture like real bread even though it is wheat free with an almond flour base. http://paleoparents.com/featured/french-toast-cinnamon-bread-pudding/

      Tip: for me it was sweet enough, but my wife would like it sweeter. If you read the recipe there is an option to make it sweeter with honey butter. So adjust as you see fit.

  • Bob B.

    Sorry I didn't take any pictures. Rachael had a lovely place for the meeting. We all had a good variety of paleo foods. If those who attended and would like to share their recipe, please email the recipe to me and I will post it at this meetup post.

  • Ellen P.

    I plan on coming, but will be a bit late. Hope that is ok?

    Ok, I see there is no grains so organic rice flour does not work. I may be bringing nuts and stuff from the health food store this time! I will say the more I see about this the better it gets!

    April 16, 2013

    • Bob B.

      Strictly speaking, rice is not paleo. However, it's not the real bad guy like wheat. Let me have Mark Sisson give you the pros and con for rice: http://www.marksdaily...­ In conclusion, the more healthy rice is the brown and/or organic. So, feel free to bring it, as anyone can choose what they want to eat & how much. As for me, a little rice once in a while never hurts. Keep in mind, rice is a starch w/ a high amount of carbs, so it really comes down to portion control IMO.

      April 17, 2013

      Mark's article suggests that brown rice has more nutrients but also more antinutrients, i.e. its only healthier if you find a way to remove the antinutrients while maintaining the nutrients. From a purely autoimmune perspective brown rice would be worse than white if the antinutrients are not removed.

    is the location dog friendly?

  • Steve M.

    Go for it, Melissa. This is a very open and casual group. Just wish I could make it tonight, too.

    I got rice flour instead of almond flour. Will that work? Is rice an OK food? I know there are limited grains, which works for me but I am not sure if that means some are OK.

    April 16, 2013

    • Bob B.

      See my comment above regarding rice.

      April 17, 2013

  • Ellen P.

    I hope to make it. Things are always subject to how I am feeling at the last minute though. Hope that is ok?

    April 16, 2013

    • Bob B.

      Ellen, if you did a ride. let me know.

      April 16, 2013

  • Bob B.

    I will be bringing a broccoli dish.

    Wish we could join you again, but alas, work gets in the way. Have fun!

    Can't wait to meet this new community. I have been paleo/primal for a little less than a year and can't wait to connect with some like minded people. Just a question though, are a lot of people anti dairy? Just trying to think of something to bring and whether or not it should include some of my homemade yogurt from locally sourced milk.

    April 4, 2013

    • Bob B.

      Good question b/c this is an issue we need to be aware of. But, IMO it's a personal thing, and yes strict paleo is no diary. So when in doubt as to what is best for your health, go strict paleo. Yet, many people diary is not a problem but you must remember that not all kinds of dairy is good since mankind has destroyed traditional dairy. However, "natural dairy", i.e., if it is not processed, is a whole another question. But, let me point out what some of the paleo experts are saying, so see my post on this at:
      http://www.meetup.com...­] . I hope that answers your question.

      I have done a lot of the research on it, and am aware that strict paleo is non dairy, I personally consume yogurt, but fully respect everyone's choices. I was just bouncing some ideas around in my head on what to bring and was just wondering what the people in this group ate.

      April 4, 2013

  • Bob B.

    Sure thing. Possibly my wife will come also
