Paleo F(x) 2014 wrapped up just a few days ago (if you missed it, you can still get the goods here), and while I was only able to go for one day, I still left with LOTS of memories.
Paleo F(x) is a Paleo/Primal/Real Food-oriented ancestral health conference/vendor showcase in Austin, TX where many of the brightest minds in science, biology, fitness and PALEO YUMMINESS (let’s be honest, that’s the REALLY exciting part) get together to
eat chocolate talk about food and health.
But mostly eat chocolate. Eating Evolved chocolate, to be specific. The most amazing chocolate ever, ever.
Not only is their chocolate awesome, but they’re supremely delightful people. Check them out.
I also got to meet Sarah of The Paleo Mom and The Paleo Approach (which I reviewed here.) She’s beautiful inside and out!
One of my favorite people (and moms-to-be) Steph G. of Rock Your Hormones was at the Paleo coffee spot Picnik Austin, and we got to chat for a moment. Steph is a Registered Dietician doing AMAZING things, and she’s passionate about helping women balance their hormones based on her own experiences recovering hormonal balance through smart movement and real food. Check her out!
(PS: I had permission to touch her pregnant belly. Don’t worry. I’m not a super-creeper. Just a somewhat-creeper.)
Speaking of Picnik Austin, I highly encourage everyone to check out this awesome Paleo coffee spot. They’ve got healthy grain-free meals and treats, and it’s the Bulletproof coffee capital of Texas (and possibly the world). If you’re lucky, Naomi may even pose for a “Prom Pic” with you!
Speaking of “prom poses,” I also (finally) got to meet Trina of Primal Life Organics in person. Trina contributed her extensive expertise to Purely Primal Skincare Guide, and we’ve got some really exciting plans in the pipeline.
I also got to sign lots of copies of my book, Eat the Yolks, and connect with many amazing, supportive readers! I’m beyond grateful for all the support you all have shown my book. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!
One of the most exciting parts of my trip, however, had nothing to do with Paleo. I actually got to visit our new furbaby-to-be, Scout! Scout is a sweet rescue who is currently living with my good friend April, who is fostering her.
When April first brought Scout into her home, she knew she’d found the perfect dog for us. We agreed, but she’s too small (and prone to carsickness) to travel to Missouri with us just yet. So April is taking care of her for a few weeks until we can bring her home! (More on Scout when we become her “official” family.)
The good news: Scout ran right up to me as if she knew I was her “person.” We got off to a great start together. Until we took these pictures, where she looks like she thinks I might be murdering her. Sorry, Scout. I just needed to stock up on those puppy cuddles!
That’s it for now! Thanks to all who took the time to chat at Paleo Fx. See you next year!
Thanks for reading!
