Indiana Paleo -- Please tell me I'm not alone!!!

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created April 18, 2011 at 12:49 AM

Am I alone here? Seriously.

Anyone from the Indianapolis area? Anyone? Anyone?

What about central Indiana? No? Crap.

Anyone here live in Indiana at all? crickets

EDIT: Well, awesome. I'm realllly pleasantly surprised! It seems there's an Indiana Paleo presence after all. I'm going to start a Facebook group at the very least to attempt to organize some Indiana Paleo enthusiasts into a cohesive community. Please add me (Nathan Becker) as a friend on Facebook if interested, and I'll add you to the group. From there, invite all your friends who have even a little interest in a Paleo-type lifestyle! Also, feel free to email me at nabecker (at) indiana.edu if you'd like like to contribute any suggestions, have any questions, or have any advice for me.

Sorry, can't help you too much. I only know suppliers in the southern part of the state. The Swiss Connection visits our farmers' market, and they have just about the best quality beef and dairy you could imagine. I think they're located in north-central Indiana, though I may be wrong. Check them out!

You're definitely not alone! I eat a pretty strictly Paleo diet (I allow myself the occasional cheat), and recommend it to all of my training clients (Lvl 1 CF Trainer here), most of whom follow it to some degree (a couple strictly).

Also, I'm a big proponent of locally sourced, sustainable foods... mostly do farm-market and co-op shopping for produce, and also get grass-finished beef from farms nearby (actually just filled the freezer with a side of beef last month).

The word is spreading; whenever anyone finds out I'm a fitness coach and asks me how they should be eating (or, alternatively, asks me to help them reach their fitness goals), I try to bring them into the fold. :)

Cheers, Frank

I went searching for the same thing in my area (St. Louis, MO). I started in the forums over on MDA. Eventually I started a meetup group at www.meetup.com. In one month we have over 35 members. Seven of us met and went on a hike in a state park just today.

I recommend checking the forums on some of the websites. Also check the crossfit gyms in your area. I'm certain there many, many paleos in your area. And, I dare say, most of them are eager to talk to people like you.

In addition to starting the meetup group, Primal Living STL, we also have a facebook page by the same name.

Good luck to you! Laura

A great place to buy grass fed beef from is La Cense Beef. La Cense is an approved 100% grass fed ranch located in Montana. They have an awesome website and you can order via the Internet and have your grass fed beef delivered directly to you. The meat is fresh and tasty and the process is so convenient.
