Grokfeast in Ohio

On September 11th I asked Mark’s Daily apple readers to host a Grokfeast (a picnic/party celebrating the Primal lifestyle) and to send me the results. The following is one of 14 amazing submissions, the best of which will win an entire cow [8] courtesy of US Wellness [9].

We are a young family of hunter-gatherers living in south-eastern Ohio. In preparation for our Grokfeast, we undertook our usual Saturday morning outing to the farmer’s markets, natural food store, and the local butcher. On our way to the feast, we stopped by the orchard that has been in my mom’s family for almost a century to get our “daily apples”.

We had the feast at my parent’s farmhouse out in the woods and were joined by fellow Primal friends from our apartment complex. All of the dishes turned out well and everyone, from the elders to the toddlers, brought a primal appetite for the occasion. The Poblano and Jalapeño poppers were a big hit!
As twilight fell, we took a walk to visit my dad’s grass-fed cows. After a bit of trekking, we caught up with them and by the last bit of twilight we tossed them tufts of green grass and ventured to get close enough to give them a pet. It may not have been conducive to iphone-photography but it was a thoroughly primal experience.

The Feast

Sausage/Bacon/Cheese Poblano and Jalapeño Poppers



Cut up the peppers and roast in the oven with butter. Cook the bacon and sausage. Stuff the bacon, sausage, and cheese into the roasted peppers. Broil for a minute or so. Grok on!
