When we are asked why we started this journey, the easiest answer is because we were sick. Sick of a different diet every month that did not work. Sick of food that always made us feel terrible. Sick of sporadic, random exercise routines with no results. And most of all, sick of being 33 year olds that felt like they were 70.
In February of 2013, my husband and I started following the Paleo Lifestyle. In a nutshell, Paleo is centered on eating grass-produced meats, fish, organic fresh fruits and veggies, eggs, nuts and heathy oils. We learned quickly that eating this way could be pricey and limited by what your supermarket will carry.
Enter, my husband Greg. He always had a love for gardening. The first year in our home, our garden consisted of two tomato plants, some lettuce and herbs. Some four years later he is producing so much organic food that I do not buy any produce during our peak growing season.
Naturally, making this type of lifestyle change sparks interest. People want to know how we do it. More importantly, people want to know IF they can do it.
The answer is 100% yes. So we created this site to show you how. We are a married couple, with full-time jobs and a modest income. And we do not live on a farm. This is realistic, organic living.
