  • Paleo Meet Up in Vancouver, BC

    Fellow Vancouverites,

    I am considering starting up a meet up group on paleo living. Based on what I see other groups doing, we could hold some potlucks or have someone lead a discussion on a topic related to fitness or nutrition.

    Just wondering if there are others on this forum from Van who would be interested? I spend my days defending my strange food practices to friends and family and every once and awhile it would be great to hang out with some like-minded people.

    I guess I knew it all along....I am the only non-vegan, non-granola eating fool in all of Lotusland....time to move to Yaletown, buy a tiny dog, put it in my man purse and head to Whole Food for some whole grains.

      Aww, don't say that. I'm originally from Vancouver (and was just there for the last 3 weeks), but am away for school. I won't be able to make any meeting unless it's sometime in those 2 weeks I get at Christmas, and was actually jealous when I saw your first post. I'm pretty sure there are more vancouverites/victoria ppl here, they likely just missed your post.

      Also, my first Whole Foods experience was at the one on Cambie street, OMG, can we say love at first sight?! I had a great lunch from their salad bar, bought a bunch of high-cocoa chocolates, and this giant tube of coconut flour. I was dreaming how when I move back of living in that area so I could go to Whole Foods often =)

        That sounds like it'd be a blast. A bit far though for me to come from Ottawa though, haha.

        That's just means there's more people to convert, haha.

              I'm so close! Yet, so far... Just a $70 ferry ride away! I think it's a great idea though. Good luck with it though.
