As this will be our first meetup, we will keep it simple. I want the opportunity to meet with all of you and discuss the vision we want for this group. I have always believed the saying, "If you build it, they will come..." (thanks, "Field of Dreams"), so I'd like to get a feel for what people like to do and how often we would like to meet.
I realize that while we have all adopted this alternative but ever-growing way of eating that we will come from many different walks of life and viewpoints. With this in mind, I ask that we approach this group with an open mind and bring the most positive and accepting version of ourselves to this discussion. The one thing I know I don't want is a member to leave feeling unsupported in their endeavor to get healthy.
With that said, I'm excited and looking forward to meeting so many others who have also turned away from the SAD way of eating.
As for snacks, please feel free to bring whatever you like, as long as it is paleo friendly (according to your eating plan). Since each person's body is different, what works for you is what's most important. If you plan to use "grey area" or potential allergen items such as dairy, soy, nuts, eggs, and/or nightshades, that is fine. I assume since all of us are adults, we will also be advocates for our own health and ask what's in a particular item prior to comsumption :)
