- Welcome back from Texas, Sarah! Sorry you lost your voice! Sarah always tries to take it easy after travel because it hits her hard.

- Sarah is back from Paleo FX, our favorite paleo event! We love meeting people, talking to people and finding interesting stories.
- Weekly reminder that Paleo Principles is coming soon!
- Stacy couldn’t make it this year because we had so much going on this year, including selling our house!
- This year Paleo FX wasn’t about “carbs” or other controversies, but on getting back to the anthropological roots, it seemed.
- Sarah feels like she didn’t have to defend science as a concept this year like she has in the past. Remember: science is a process for finding truth, not a monolithic set of ideas.
- The idea of Paleo FX is paleo as implemented into practice. So getting into minutiae seems silly.
- Sarah’s talk was about what we know from scientific reaseach about reducing disease risk. She thought it was well received.
- Paleo FX did seem to be focusing on synthesizing modern and evolutionary biology.
- Several talks focused on lifestyle factors like sleep. Sarah liked hearing about it from Dan Pardi and Dr. Kirk Parsley
- Next year, Paleo FX is rebranding to Health FX, a controversial decision!
- Sarah and Stacy think this is part of a greater movement to make paleo idea more mainstream and associated with just good health.
- Just make sure that your conference doesn’t suddenly become full of angry vegans!

- Pure Indian Foods has a new oils like Black Cumin Seed oil that are great.
- Epic bar has a lot of new flavors, including AIP friendly ones like a great Salmon one.
- One Stop Paleo Shop now has a chocolate hazelnut bar from Hu’s Kitchen. It’s awesome!
- Xero Shoes has a line of natural movement shoes that are tough but flexible.
- Enviromedica was there with their supplement lines PrescriptAssist and Ancient Minerals. She liked the Magnesium lotion with melatonin
- Anthony Morocco from Morocco Methods gave Sarah advice on managing her daughter’s hair.
- And Sarah’s Vital Proteins Veggie Blend was a big hit, too! And was demonstrated by Snap Kitchen in a beet hummus.
- Sweet Apricity has a line of tasty, dangerous caramels.
- Stacy was happy to see that Aimee Rose, who she met through Strongman has been at Paleo FX two years in a row!
