The Whole Damn Thing

There’s been a lot of buzz around MADville lately.  The endless holiday party circuits (wine/beer/booze and ALL the desserts), coupled with the increased demands of travel and sweat schedule sacrifices have left many of our tribe feeling the effects, and it sure doesn’t feel great.  So, we’re going to do something about it, all of us, together.  We’re doing The Whole Damn Thing.

fuel sweat grow: the whole damn thing

We’re not talking juice fasting – not at all.  We’re talking real good food – just pure fuel for our bodies, and none of the crap, chemicals, or otherwise inflammation inducing foods that are messing with our systems (body and mind).

Now, just to be clear, I’m not owning this concept by way of my new hybrid name for it, it’s merely an umbrella campaign to cover all the different clients choosing their preferred ‘plan’ (the 28toLife, Whole 30, or just classic Paleo challenge evangelists). We’ll call it strength in numbers since this effort is all inclusive. So whatever your preference (and that includes plant based modifications too!), and wherever you choose to sweat (we’re not closing this off to MAD clients) let’s find some common ground.  Here are the basic fundamentals; no chemicals, no sugar, no artificial anything; no grains, no/limited dairy, and no alcohol.  We’re simply focusing on real whole foods that we prefer to have locally sourced from some of the amazing farms and local businesses we’ve got right here in Charlottesville.

The commencement date for this challenge is Sunday, January 4th (if we can wait that long) and will be kicked off with a potluck dinner for all (sign up and ‘rules’ on how to ‘appropriately potluck’ to follow).

In preparation for the kick off — in case you’re not able to wait another week, or you know that your life is going to be hella crazy as you forge into the new year, you need to check out MODpaleo.

I kid you not, if I didn’t love cooking so much as my own in-house therapy, I would seriously consider ordering all of my meals from these guys.  It’s better than my own cooking, and is 100% clean and amazing.  And the bonus: THEY SHIP OVERNIGHT TO VIRGINIA!  Yep.  That’s right.

So, head on over and make yourself an account, check out their super awesome menu for the week, and go to town.  Oh, did I mention that if you plug in the code ‘MadnessCville,’ you’ll get 10% off your first order.  Yep, just because I like you.

So, that’s what’s happening around MADville this week, and we could not be more excited.  There is, of course, more to come, so sign up to get the blog updates right smack in your inbox, follow instagram, and keep an eye out for a Facebook event for the potluck.  Here’s to kicking off 2015 with the best damn community Charlottesville can bring together for some good clean fun.

MODpaleo + Paleo Parents: BOTH COMING TO CVILLE!

Over the last few months I’ve been all up in MODpaleo’s grill….pretty literally.  Aside from making sure they catered meals at my office in Charlotte (their home base), I’ve also been talking up their upcoming delivery option for our folks at MADabolic Cville (or really any friends in Charlottesville or Virginia).  So here’s the big announcement(s): THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER!  Meal delivery is here and you can get some special love and treatment right here through this link (aka, the portal to paleo).

I’m so excited about this, not only for my own life convenience (I too like to take days off from cooking), but also for the lives of all of my favorite MADville friends.

So, folks, go here and order up.  I promise that you’ll be happy that you did.  Efficiency finally meets convenience for a whole lot of clean, delicious eating without having to shop, cook, or clean.

So, while I have your attention and we’re all fueled up on the thought of clean fuel, paleo meals and being amazing, here’s announcement #2 – and it’s a big one.

Paleo Parents (bloggers, authors, and also…well, real live paleo-living parents) are bringing The Paleo View Book Signing Tour to Charlottesville, and we’re hosting the event at MADabolic Cville.

We’re pretty pumped to have them in Charlottesville (not to mention our own happy little piece of ‘ville), and hope that you will all come out to join us for this amazing night.  Come on out, buy their book, and get it signed right there by the authors — and then, hey, maybe we can all go up to Citizen’s Burger Bar (CBB) and grab a bite.  Why not dream big?
