Well I'm back from my first ever Paleo Conference. Yes, I went to Paleo f(x) 2013 and it was extremely awesome! It was in Austin, which is a super excellent city, with plenty of great food and friendly people. Meeting all of the cool bloggers in the Paleosphere was kind of mind blowing, I must admit. My roommate was the fabulous Kaila, of In My Skinny Genes! It was great to have a cheerful person to share a room with. Mostly I hung out with Russ the genius behind The Domestic Man and the ever friendly Tony who blogs at Fitness in an Evolutionary Direction. Very awesome dudes!! Letting little old me hang out with them, haha.
I also chilled with Stacy and Matt, The Paleo Parents, and occasionally Josh who is the Paleo Rapper, Slim-P*. Over the weekend I got to meet, for the first time, in person, all the most badass bloggers: The Food Lovers, Balanced Bites, The Urban Poser, Against All Grain, Civilized Caveman, FreeRange Human, Stephani Ruper, Ancestral Chef, The Spunky Coconut, and the incomparable Nom Nom Paleo, Fitbomb and family. I even got to have dinner with Paul Jaminet, author of The Perfect Health Diet! He is a very humble and gracious fellow, I appreciate his book so much! Please forgive me if you were overlooked, it all happened so fast!
It was a weekend chock full of learning new information, all crammed in between hilarious conversations and mouth-watering food. (Can we say smoked brisket and grass-fed ice cream?) I'd definitely go back again, and I am seriously considering attending AHS this summer as well...
Anyway, you're not here to hear me gush about meeting famous bloggers, you're here for illustrations! That's my job, right?! Here's my favourite fruit, the cherry! When I went to Vancouver in the summer last year I was eating them by the pound. NO REGRETS!! I think white cherries are the tastiest, but I'll take them all.
Thanks for dropping by! Happy Friday!!
