Introducing JAMBER: Mostly Incoherent Ramblings From 2 Paleo Wannabes
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!).
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.
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….
