🚧 Kitchen Construction Update! We're garnishing the plate! 🔪

Feb 17, 2023

The smokers about to be wheeled into place!

We are garnishing the plate and ready to serve up Ice Age Meals 2.0.

The final inspection of our building permit has been signed off.

We are just a few days away from firing up the smokers and cooking again!

We are putting the finishing touches on as we await our final Health Department inspection! Woohoo!!!

If you’ve been following along since October, thank you!

So much has changed in such a short period of time. With so much going on on a daily basis, it’s impossible to tell the whole story, but here’s a quick punch list:

  • On October 16th, we shared that we would be closing our kitchen after an 8 year lease.

  • In late October, I got the idea to transition our warehouse into a production kitchen.

  • We shared the idea with the local authorities and got the green light.

  • We loaded our lot with shipping containers and transferred everything from our old kitchen and warehouse into the containers.

  • We set to work to construct and install a whole host of required components.

Here is a sneak peak of what we’ve accomplished so far.

The authorities must really like us because they sent four health inspectors! That’s eight eyes combing our culinary quarters hoping to poke holes in our plan!

Other than a few minor discrepancies, things are looking good!

The biggest thing I can say is, “THANK YOU!”

I believe that vulnerability leads to victory and that has certainly played out in this case. I was talking with my friend, Tony Turski, yesterday and couldn’t even explain how much things have turned around in the last four months.

We took bold steps and shared our story and all of you rallied to support us. We’ve been burning the midnight oil to turn things around.

We are more optimistic than ever about the future of Ice Age Meals, Ice Age Culinary, an our mission to:

Change the food landscape in the USA and beyond.

Here’s a view from the “Eagle’s Nest” - It’s like the crow’s nest on a ship, but way better!

We are soaring on wings like eagles right now and looking deep inside as we take the next steps in our monumental mission.

In a world that thinks Lucky Charms are better than steak and eggs, how do you make a difference?

How do you transcend the sales aspect of changing people’s lives?

The best I can come up with is that we must help people change their minds about food.

How much does a value meal at McDonald’s cost?

It might seem a good deal at $12, but it cost you way more than that. It costs you your health!

With our combination of cooking lessons, frozen meals and snacks, we have a system that will help humans stay on track.

I'm taking a test drive before sharing the details with all of you. I'm on day 17 of The Ice Age Method and it's looking more like The Ice Age Meltdown! 

I'll publish the results in early March. We are definitely on to something... 

I always like to give you "More To Chew-On", so here's a quote from James Allen in As A Man Thinketh:

“Change of diet will not help a man who will not change his thoughts. When a man makes his thoughts pure, he no longer desires impure foods.”

Today, we are polishing off the cooler! The health department wanted us to fill a few hairline cracks in the floor, but we are going style-plus!

We pulled the steel base bumpers and gave them four coats of paint.

The Epoxy Mafia is gearing up to do what they do best!

We’ll share more pictures when the project is complete.

Thanks again for following along!

Your Pal,

Paleo Nick
