Introducing JAMBER: Mostly Incoherent Ramblings From 2 Paleo Wannabes

April 17, 2012 15 Comments | Disclosure

Move over Brangelina! There’s a new duo in town.

Buckle up kids, it’s gonna be a wild ride! Joey (you know her by the handle Fab About Albertsons on our site) and I recently began an adventure transforming how we eat and therefore feed our families. We’ll walk you through our semi-logical reasoning for the transition to the Paleo lifestyle, share with you our struggles with a whole new way of eating, post new-to-us recipes and record every last ridiculous minute of it. All I have to say is it’s a good thing there’s a pause/stop/mute button on these videos. You’ll probably need them (we’re going to assume it’s so you can pause it while you take potty breaks or answer the phone, so you don’t miss one riveting second!).

Our Story:

Joey and I met almost 10 years ago, back when we had no children and therefore a few remaining brain cells. She’s funny. I like funny people. It was a match made in heaven.

Through the years our friendship has survived constant change: new careers, the birth of 4 spunky little babies, moves across town, death of loved ones, and a plethora of random adventures. The one thing that has remained constant? She’s always been the type of friend to tell me if I have macaroni and cheese mashed on the butt of my pants. Everyone needs a friend like that.

So when she said “Hey, wanna stop eating beans, milk, cheese, yogurt, pasta, cookies, donuts, cake, alfredo sauce, rice and every other heavenly thing that currently grace your lips in an attempt to shed our thunder thighs and get all healthy?” Of course I said, “Heck, yeah!” And so our Paleo journey began.

Our Mission:

During our weekly video segments, aka. Jamberees, our main goal is to help you realize that you CAN coupon for healthy foods. Even if you only implement a fraction of what we’re doing by eating Paleo, we hope that’s the takeaway. We eat meats, eggs, fish, veggies, fruits and nuts; nothing processed and we still manage to save money at the grocery store. We’ll share all the hows and whys, and perhaps help educate you a bit in the process (keep in mind we said a bit, as imparting wisdom is not our forte!). Also, if you have any questions for us about what we eat, what we’re cooking or about our overall sanity, we’d love to answer them.

So we’ll see you back here soon for our 2nd Jamberee where we’ll discuss our reasons for breaking up with dairy/carbs/sugar. Stay tuned….

Hugs,

-Jamber

  1. You two are funny. I’m interested in eating paleo and am excited to see your tips.

  2. hahaha I loved the video! Thanks for the early morning laugh!

  3. So funny, ladies. I love how you’re “striving for mediocrity and always attaining it.” Haaa!! You two are hilarious … and I’m super interested to see how you make a no-dairy diet work in households with kids. Not sure yet if Paleo is right for me & my family, but I’ll be tuning in to learn more! :)

  4. Love it JAMBER!!! You funny ladies have me intrigued! Can’t wait to see next week!

  5. I hope, hope, hope I can use your tips for my neck of the woods, cause I don’t do paleo, but I do whole-foods-no-sugar-or-processed-foods-little-to-no-dairy, and it is EXPENSIVE!!!

    p.s. I am available. Want to make it a Jamberee-A (or is that too close to diarrhea?)?

  6. super excited for the paleo deals as well as what you are eating.

    I started eating paleo a two months ago and my food budget went out the window with the sugar I was eating. So I am excited to see what you come up with. By the way the first 3-7 days are the worst, then it gets better.

  8. Ha ha ha! Excited to see what kind of healthy couponing we can do! And excited for recipes!

  9. Awesome! I went Paleo three weeks ago. And now my family of 8 (yes, 6 kids!) are trying to eat this way too! Hoping you both can help find good, cheap ways to feed us:) Keep it up.

  10. We have been eating Paleo for the last 6 months and love it!!!

  11. So excited for this!

  12. So I have convinced my husband that this is not just a fad diet and really is about changing your life and health, and he is on board! Change is definitely easier when you have someone else to come along for the ride. Looking forward to all your posts about this!

  13. I would just warn to read the anti paleo as well as the pro before you decide this is for you (to all readers– not pointing to Jamber) The quick research I did is a little scary. Diets are just like statistics you can skew them the way you want them to look so just be sure and read both sides to make an informed decision. You will always feel better uping fruits and veggies and cutting processed, but that doesn’t mean the whole paleo diet is the way to go. Good luck on your journey, you two are a hoot.

    Girls u rock I have been embarking on the paleo lifestyle for awhile now and glad to see this I want some more info on the couponing side of this please and keep up the great work there will be people who don’t understand this lifestyle bit if they look at anything related to holistic medicine and healing the body from the preservatives and artificial things in everything they will eventually understand bc all that stuff causes cancer and paleo teaches u that u don’t need all that crud in your body bc cancer is fed by sugar and all the crud in the pre packaged stuff has corn syrup high fructose and more so detox the body and no more cravings for sugar and all the bad things, so good job ladies will be watching for more.
