Location: meeting room (5)
Audience: Adults, Teens

FLAS Bidler 1112013Paleo, a way of eating resembling that of our ancestors more than our current industrial food system, has evolved into more than a diet. It has come to represent a cultural shift in the ways that we eat, exercise, play, and live. Paleo in Maine: a Local Resource Guide for the Modern Hunter Gatherer features recipes, resources, and real-life stories from farms and kitchens across the state. This book includes: * An overview of the basic Paleo diet * Information on hunting, fishing, and foraging throughout Maine * Interviews with Jonah Fertig of Local Sprouts Cooperative, Toby Tarpinian of Morning Glory Natural Foods, and Ralph Caldwell of Caldwell Farms * A directory of natural food stores and “paleo-friendly” distributors * Recipes and sample meal plans from Keirsten Murphy of the popular recipe blog Keirsten’s Kitchen
