Paleo Bookclub Month 3 (Wired to Eat – Robb Wolf)

Grab some food at the hot bar or the smokehouse (really good brisket) and bring your book and we will talk about this month's Paleo book. 

This month we will be reading: 

Wired to Eat – Robb Wolf

You can purchase it from Amazon here: Robb's new book just published today! [masked]).

Or from you local bookseller or possibly from your local library.

Please Join us and have your questions or thoughts about the book ready.

When I am reading most Paleo or health books the questions I ask are:

“yes, but…. what about X, Y, or Z” 

“What would my solution be to that Problem”

“yes, and… “


“{No, because of this…. “

See you all in a few weeks and happy reading!

Halloween Party & Potluck

Stealing an idea from another Paleo MeetUp group in the DC Area. A Paleo Halloween Party for the kids. Another chance to wear those fun costumes and have a great time without getting bombarded by candy.

Wearing a costume! Bring your kids Bring a paleo/primal finger food for sharing Bring a non-candy “treat” for our trick-or-treaters Relax and have fun! I will make a big CrockPot full of Chocolate Chili.  We will have a bounce house, games/craft and Spooky Storytime. A great MeetUp to get the kids or the spouse involved.

I live near Essex/Geyer in Kirkwood. My specific address will be sent out the week of the party to the attendees. My # is [masked] if you have any questions.

Open to all MeetUp members of course, kids not required. 🙂
If you like party planning and have any fun ideas, please contact me. I can handle it, but I would appreciate any help. 🙂

Self-Care Working Group

Self-care technologies. Figuring out stuff for yourself. What you can learn before you resort to expensive medical testing. $20 per meeting. Practitioners, welcome. Topics will include lifestyle, nutrition, supplements, diet, sleep, quantified-self technology, self-empowerment and any topic from any of my past Dialog Dinners hosted by Joni Sare, or blogs from <a>www.Project</a>

The third Sunday of the month.  Three hour window.  This is intended to be a working group, where progress over time is part of the process.

To ensure a safe environment, all participants will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement that binds them against discussing any other person's health issues and meeting comments.

There is no requirement for implementation.  You can sit and listen for informational purposes only, if that is what you wish.

If you do not know me and would like a general introduction, watch “Nutrients for Better Mental Performance” on the Google TechTalk Channel on YouTube.  Or just type “Steve Fowkes” at the YouTube prompt and select something else.

Let's Spring into action and have some fun. Prepare to get down and dirty.

Grow Your Own Veggies in Your Backyard!

Whether you have a large outdoor space, a simple lawn that you'd like to transform, or just a few containers on a porch, you can create a full, balanced, beautiful, and abundantly productive ecosystem, complete with many different kinds of animal residents and visitors. Even a small container garden can attract and nurture rare and interesting creatures such as butterflies, birds, bees, and more. Larger gardens can shelter vertebrates like frogs, newts, and nesting birds.

If you like, you can assemble and take home a small container garden with planting medium, ready to grow into an ecosystem mini-garden. You also get a free on-site visit at a later date, where we can explore your existing landscape and talk about its potential. This is your opportunity to be part of the growing community of deep nature gardeners. Won't you join us? 

• Learn what a deep nature garden is 

• Learn how a deep nature garden is not like a traditional one 

• Learn about the stages of a deep nature garden 

• Learn about the skills of deep nature gardening 

• Take home a small container garden you created yourself 

• Arrange a free on-site visit in your own garden

There is a $50 charge for this workshop.
