Whole9 Paleo Nutrition Seminar ($100 – Springfield, MO)

I know that Springfield isn't local for everyone on here, it is about a 3 hour trip from STL, but this is the closest that a high profile Paleo seminar has come to STL. I will be attending & can't carpool down, but could carpool back with someone, possibly. Just wanted to let everyone know it was going on. The hosts are Collin Popp & Ashley Fleming.

Make and Take: Natural Body Butter

With the cold/dry weather I've been using up a LOT of homemade lotion. Between myself and sharing with friends I'm running pretty low which means another batch is in my near future. It's easy I promise…I modified a recipe from Wellness Mama and it smells amazing. If anyone wants to come over for a make and take we can make a big batch in my kitchen and then everyone can leave with a sample. I'm going to do this anyways so why not make a meetup out of it, right?!
Plus it's a good opportunity to talk about and plan some upcoming active meetups too. 🙂

Paleo Potluck

Location: Kirkwood City Park, picnic site 5

 

Connect with others who dig “this paleo thing.” Show off your favorite caveman dish and taste culinary delights from kitchens all across the St. Louis area. We're celebrating the conclusion of our 6-Week Paleo Challenge and all are welcome to join.

Get your food and fitness questions answered by experts from the ReBorn Health team. Got a paleo-curious friend or loved on? Bring them along to show them how tasty our food is! Meet and connect with paleo eaters of all levels of experience. Tour a local CrossFit gym and chat with owners and trainers BYOB and BYOC (chair). We're eco-conscious so we prefer that folks bring their own reusable plates, utensils, and cups. Please provide serving utensils for your dish. See you there?
