Any Central Florida/Orlando Fl residents interested in a Paleo Diet Meetup Group?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I recently started The Orlando Paleo Diet Meetup (www.meetup.com/Orlando-Paleo-Diet-Meetup-Group) with the intention of bringing together the Central Florida Paleo Community.

In Orlando alone there are at least 3 CrossFit Gyms (maybe more), a relatively bountiful agricultural scene (local meats & veg), plenty of parks and outdoor recreation (camping, lakes,etc.) and (except for a few blistering summer months) a blessedly moderate climate. Bottom line is that the area is pretty Paleo-friendly and there has to be more than just a handful of cavemen/cavewomen out there!

Our next Meetup is going to be a "Paleo Potluck" at a local park and the more the merrier!

The only place I've found w/grass feed beef for sale is the Lake Miriam Publix, 4730 S Florida Ave Lakeland, FL 33813. But it is very expensive. Which is one reason I'm still eating grain fed beef. :( I've been able to get a lot of my veggies from Sams' Club, but Publix would be your best bet while on vacation.

Saturday, April 23rd, we're having a "Paleo Potluck" at Cypress Grove Park (about 10 minutes South of Downtown Orlando, just take Orange Ave. to Gatlin Blvd. and take a right, it is on the left hand side less than a mile down). Anyone in Orlando or the surrounding areas is welcome to attend, but I do request that you take a few seconds to go to our Meetup.com page (http://www.meetup.com/Orlando-Paleo-Diet-Meetup-Group/) and join/sign up to attend. This way you can let everyone know what you will be bringing. For those who are interested, we also have the option of doing a Boxing workout pri

Sounds like a plan Elizabeth! The group is only a few weeks old, but we're up to 12 "homo sapiens" and growing each day. I'm really glad to hear that it has been a great experience for you and we'll definitely need to stay in touch as things build.

I'd love to have you and your friends join the Meetup Renee! I created a conversation thread about Paleo/Primal friendly restaurants on the Meetup, so your insight would be much appreciated.

Good luck, and have fun! I recently started an Atlanta Paleo Meetup, and it has been an awesome experience. I've met tons of great people, and every event has been a blast. It truly has exceeded my expectations. I'd love to kibbitz about event ideas, when you get going! :)

Quick question, is everyone going going to be completely ripped? Hah. I don't wanna be the only skinny guy there.
