REAL FOOD MEET UP GROUP!

It's official! The Real Food Meet Up Group met on July 30th at my house! It was a huge success and the beginning to some fabulous meetings regarding REAL FOOD!

It also felt great being surrounded by such like minded people!

We began the meeting sharing our story.  Everyone had their own reasons for joining the group, however, the overall theme was that everyone wanted to make better choices and maintain or achieve REAL health.

Recipes and Co Op information was shared.  If you were not able to attend but would like this information, I will have copies on hand at the next meeting.

We talked about a group distribution list and "cc-ing" each other with comments, suggestions, questions, or information. The email group is officially begun! :) Stay tuned for a Facebook Page!

Also, great questions came up which led to ideas about what the next meeting should look like.

1. How do you eliminate white sugar
2. What to cook for breakfast/samples
3. Smoothie recipes/samples
4. What does raw milk products taste like?

I really like how this just evolved from our discussion. I am assuming that each meeting will be like this and therefore we won't have predetermined "topics".  If topics do not naturally arise, we can come up with one, because there is plenty to talk about!

I had an idea that each person would start a "REAL FOOD" notebook (not necessary but might really keep information organized!).  Now is the perfect time to go to the store and pick out a special notebook to keep all your notes and handouts in from the REAL FOOD meeting.  Also, if interested, get a BIG 3" binder and begin your recipe book :) I am grateful I did this early on because the recipes add up!

The next meeting will be on Saturday Sept 10th at 3:00 (my house)
Please let me know if you can/cannot attend.  If you are unsure, feel free to wing it as well! This is a very flexible, easy going, stress free meeting/group!

Have a GREAT weekend!
