Paleo at Porcfest?
« on: April 27, 2013, 10:02:30 pm »

We're coming to Porcfest from Cleveland this year and are curious how we're going to feed ourselves  :)

We're paleo but not super strict, we do eat a lot of starches but no grains or legumes. We are very strict about meat; free-range chicken and pork, grass-fed beef and dairy only. We also do all organic veggies. Have there been any vendors in the past that have those sort of options?

We're also spending a few days in the Nashua-Manchester area so if anyone knows of any restaurants we'd love to know those as well.

Thanks!

I believe there will be a few there this year with such variety of foods for sale. :-)

It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act." - Why The Gun is Civilization

Given such a large number of porcs are on a paleo diet you will be well catered for. The largest food vendor at PF is also paleo.

We're also spending a few days in the Nashua-Manchester area so if anyone knows of any restaurants we'd love to know those as well.

http://www.mtslocal.com/ http://www.surfseafood.com/ http://buckleysgreatsteaks.com/ are all owned by the same chef and use fresh & local ingredients. All beef is grass fed and poultry is free range.

http://www.thecman.com/ is a NH based chain that also only uses local & organic ingredients.

There are dozens and dozens more, organic & local food is a big deal in NH so restaurants pint out when they use both.

Not only will you have an easy time getting food, there's supposed to be not one but several different talks about the libertarian/paleo connection.

In Manchester, I would recommend Republic as all their food is locally sourced and they have some pretty creative dishes.

Um, that's not correct.  While some of their restaurants may have some local & organic options, it's by no stretch of the imagination a universal thing with them.  It's a rather "eclectic" chain, with everything from fancy restaurants to simple diners.  Good food, though, and a good company - I'd recommend them regardless of the organic-ness of their food.

Hey, what's up, everyone?

My questions:

What is Paleo?
Whatever it is, why don't you add another word to it so that people can get some sense of what you're talking about when they see the name?

Perhaps because it's in such common usage right now that even by itself it takes up the first page and a half of Google results?

I'll be selling chili all week at Porcfest.  Pure Texas style (seasoned beef -- onions and tomatoes are seasoning, right?), lamb and lentil (I call it Kosher or Palestinian or Lamb o' G-D chili depending on who I want to offend) and a vegan chili substitute.  Plus a couple of others, depends on what stuff is handy at Shaw's.  Side dishes may not qualify as Paleo (pasta, rice, cornbread).  I'll feed anybody with taste buds.  (The small batches involving my little jar of ghost pepper powder will not be served without a signed waiver).

No sweat.  (except from your forehead).  Sign the waiver, pay the money.  It's a bit more expensive than the stuff with habaneros, not just because of the added cost of the seasoning but because the malpractice insurance premiums are crippling.
