The 1st Australian Paleo Weekend, May 12 – 13, 2012!

Suz in Australia has organised Down-Under’s very first Paleo weekend. I’ll be there, as will another Kiwi Paleo Nutritionist ‘That Paleo Guy’ Jamie Scott. (I’ve been to some of Jamie’s work place seminars, always very well researched, up to date information – great presentations)

This from Suz’s website http://paleo.com.au

I’m very excited to announce the first Paleo weekend in the Southern Hemisphere will be held on 12th & 13th May, 2012 on the beautiful Cockatoo Island, in Sydney Harbour.

Whether you’ve been living a Paleo lifestyle for a while, have been interested but are yet to dip your toes in – or are looking for a way to finally improve your health and fitness – this is the weekend for you!

I’ve got together some of the leading experts from this side of the World (including Jamie ScottDr Anastasia BoulaisJulianne Taylor and Dr Ron Ehrlich), to talk about all aspects of health, nutrition & fitness and to demonstrate and teach techniques to participants.  The Paleo weekend will be held on 12th & 13th of May 2012, on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour – an absolutely fantastic venue!  The weekend will be fully catered with an amazing Paleo menu.  There is also the exclusive option for a limited number of attendees to sleep on the island overnight, in pre-erected luxury tents (it doesn’t get much more Primal than that!).

Attendees will: –

·         Learn about Paleo nutrition and health
·         Have the opportunity to quiz the experts,
·         Learn through a demonstration session how to cook quick and healthy Paleo meals,
·         Learn how to get on the fast track to peak sporting performance, by opening the door to their mind

    While you are all together please discuss the possibility of running a New Zealand Paleo Weekend 🙂

    Hope you have a great time, sad that I can’t go.
