Today, Whole9 hit an Event PR, with 70 people in attendance at our Foundations Workshop at CrossFit Invictus. (We just couldn’t say no to adding “just one more”.) We rolled out almost two hours of brand new material, including our new MealSimple™ meal planning template, designed to take the guesswork out of preparing meals, snacks, pre- and post-workout nutrition. (We’ll link to some reviews of the event on our Facebook page as they become available.) We had a fantastic time, and especially loved the opportunity to socialize with the group during the awesome lunchtime barbecue hosted by the Invictus crew.
Thanks to CJ, Michele, Jim and the rest of the CrossFit Invictus team for being such great hosts. And thanks to everyone who attended for the enthusiastic participation, smart questions and fun conversation. Next stop – Hendersonville, TN on September 11th. Reminder… early bird registration ends soon, Hendersonville!

You guys are coming to Hendersonville? YES! Only have to drive half an hour to see you guys, not five each way this time. Hopefully I’ll be bringing my girlfriend along as well! Looks awesome, hope everything’s been going well for you!
We learned soo much this weekend! Thank you soo much! I had two quick questions.
1. I just found out I am pregnant. Are there are precautions I should take while eating paleo? Should I be adding more fat, protein or carbs to my diet?
2. Melissa- I loved your cute insulated picnic basket. Where can I get a colorful one similar to yours?

See you in a few weeks!
Glad you enjoyed the workshop at Invictus. 1. We are not physicians, so check with your doc’s recommendations for pregnancy precautions. However… eating reasonable quantities of excellent quality, real, fresh food seems like a pretty sane, safe way to give your growing baby the best quality nutrition possible. Generally, let your hunger mechanism guide you on intake, but you don’t need to add any significant amount of extra food. The “I need to eat for my baby” idea is an overstatement. 2. We borrowed the picnic basket from Melissa’s sister, so we don’t know where it came from. I think Crate & Barrel has a similar one, though.
There are some articles in the Forums on MDA that discuss the link between a mother’s vitamin D levels and the baby’s chances for autism. Be sure your Vitamin D levels are good by getting them checked. But then again, if you’re on this site, you might already know this, but I had to throw it out there.
