Homo sapiens is a social animal and socializing is a super important part of the primal lifestyle (perhaps more important than the diet and exercise components). Plus, keeping primal can be tough, so keeping a good social support network is a key to success.
This is also a great chance for new or inactive members to come out to meet some of the regulars, learn from them, and make new friends. If you have been curious about this group but haven't pulled the trigger on coming to a meetup, we really encourage you to come out!!!
We'll be meeting at the HotPot Smoothie Shop, a great primal-friendly spot in Kirkwood. From their website: “Hotpot Smoothie Shop combines the health and excitement of Asian influenced cuisine with a casual corner coffee shop. Focusing on natural and responsibly sourced ingredients Hotpot Smoothie shop will offer breakfast and luncheon foods prepared to order. From delicious rice and noodle dishes to gluten free crepes and freshly made sandwiches; the emphasis is on supplying a unique, alternative to everyday dining. In addition, a full line of artisan organic tea and coffee drinks, and a health conscious smoothie bar will add further value to the establishment.”
In response to the Paleo/Primal crowd, they have added roasted sweet potatoes as a choice to their Hot Pot bowls (instead of noodles or rice) and on Thursday nights Chef Greg usually prepares a Paleo special!
