Last night was the fourth meet up of the Sydney Paleo group – and the third I’ve had the pleasure of attending. We met at a Korean Barbeque restaurant, tucked away down a side street, in the city centre. A few of us had met before and there were some new faces to meet. The food couldn’t have got much more Paleo. We had all different types of meat, which we barbequed ourselves.
I’m becoming more and more obsessed with all things Paleo as time goes by. I always want to talk about an amazing new blog I’ve found, or find out what others think about the latest research. But I am aware that a lot of my non Paleo friends aren’t as interested in this as I am! To be able to meet up with a group of people on the same wavelength is amazing.
We were able to jump straight into topics such as Jack Kruse’s Leptin theories, Nora Gedgaudas’s Australian Primal Body Primal mind conference, the AHS and how we handle social events with our non-Paleo friends. We discussed our favourite blogs and books, how we do Paleo and local Paleo friendly suppliers & restaurants.
As much as I benefit from & value my online Paleo friends and the online community, there is nothing like meeting Paleo people in real life.
Next month we’ll be meeting again, only this time for an outdoor meet up. A barbeque by the beach, frisbee, slack line & lots of paleo talk – I can’t wait!
If you don’t know any Paleo folk in real life, I suggest you join your local meetup group – or if there isn’t one – create it yourself!
