    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Former Tennessean here...now in Georgia, but I love Tennessee! Also brand new to the forum, but eating "almost" primal since March without knowing it. Just wanted to say welcome to the forum and good luck to all of you living in one of my favorite states!

    Primal in nashville here too. Just found the west nashville farmers market last month. It's so nice not to have to drive down town all time.

    Hey--I'm in Knoxville!

    I buy meat from West Wind too...but I need to get a freezer so I can buy more in bulk. I also buy meat at Earthfare, esp. when they have specials.

    I gained a lot of weight when I moved to Kville because I have NEVER lived in such a car dependent environment, so incidental exercise (walking/biking/running errands w/o a car in big cities is v. primal, I now realize). Also, the air here is pretty bad and I think it makes me less energetic. Primal is helping a lot though.

    Finally, I find winter a more physically strenuous season, tromping through snow regularly, shoveling and scraping, wearing an extra 10 lbs of clothing and dealing with dramatic temp changes and so forth helps: not having a real winter down here (I am from Canada originally, and moved here from Minnesota) also bogged me down in a strange way. I do NOT miss shoveling, cold or any of that and love the weather here mentally and physically, but I don't think it was good for my body on a deeper level.

    In any event, I am fighting it. Good to see Tennesseans here.

    Hey, Hey, Hey ! Lexington, TN reporting here.

    We are 15 miles North of Lexington, very near to Clarksberg.

    Grok On, fellow Tennesseans. PS) Tennessee is 2nd in the nation for Obesity. We need to teach all of our neighbors to buy the Primal Blueprint.

    Best of health to all,
    Grizz

    I knew we were in the top 10 for obesity, but did not realize it was #2. Based on the gain I experienced, I am not surprised.

    TN is also in the top ten for prescription drug/antidepressant use, I believe, and Kville is top 10 for worst air.

    Hey y'all, I'm in Knoxville! (Go vols!) So excited I found this thread!

    Just today, I went to a shop on Campbell Station Road called Benefit Your Life. It's a gluten-free/natural foods store and they had some of the products that I've seen mentioned on here - coconut flour, coconut sugar, So Delicious coconut milk, and they had some local meats and eggs. Check it out if you are in the area. Earthfare is a good source for some of this stuff too. Found some Kerrygold butter there last week and tried it - good stuff! Also been shopping at The Market in Maryville - they sell lots of grassfed meats from Laurel Creek Farms.

    No, I don't work for these places - I'm just a sucker for products.

    all we have is a farmers' market which is fruit and veggie and chain grocery stores. granted, walmart does have coconut milk but i'm almost afraid to try it. like... how long has it been on the shelf? that section almost never changes

    True, Walmart is pretty sketchy when it comes to that stuff. I know produce from Walmart is terrible. We have a farmers market too, but I never seem to make it there. On Saturday mornings, I'm either sleeping in a tent or just sleeping in.
