This morning in the Paleo Real World House, we woke up late, lounged around in pajamas, and tapped away on our MacBooks. Yes, we are a happy band of geeks – one and all. 

At noon, the majority of the group headed to CrossFit Austin in their Nom Nom Paleo socks to get their WOD on…

…while the rest of us went to pick up Stacy at the airport.

Late in the afternoon, we picked up some delicious take-out from Habanero Mexican Cafe.

We were all starving, and impatiently tweeted as we waited for our order to be filled.

Finally: Meatapalooza!

We ordered pounds and pounds of barbacoa and carnitas, three quarts of guacamole, and tubs of spicy pico de gallo.

This joint was a solid suggestion from Melicious. Definitely check out her recommendations for Paleo Eats around Austin. She knows the real deal, yo!

After a dozen people took turns showering in the two bathrooms in the house, we all headed to the opening events at PaleoFX.  The attendees listened to the keynote speech by Dr. Jack Kruse (who, believe it or not, at one point threatened to light a stick of dynamite)…

….and mingled with old and new Paleo friends.

Look – it’s Dave, Mel, & Julie!

And Emily! George! Robb! 

And there’s Chris!

The Virtual Foodies Panel!

Amy! Clifton!


Later, at the dinner for the speakers at the conference, we scarfed down eats from Caveman Cuisine…

…spent more time hanging with our homies….

…and passed around the beta version of our iPad cooking app.

I’m so looking forward to tomorrow.

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
