Just thought to say hello!

Hi, my name is Jennifer (you can call me Jen) and I'm new here to this forum. It's so nice to find a great Paleo community like this and I'm looking forward to be an active part of it. Kudos to the people running this site. Great job!  :)

Hi Jennifer, welcome aboard!

Can you tell us a little about yourself?  Perhaps how you came to learn about cutting grains and the potential benefits of adopting Paleo ways of life.

I learned about this 10-15 years ago and decided to start a forum since there wasn't anywhere to talk with like-minded people!

Hi Jennifer, welcome aboard!

To be quite honest I had no idea what Paleo was all about until a neighbor inadvertently introduced me to it. We had a potluck dinner at our home and noticed that she wasn't having any of the pasta even if the other guests were raving about it. At first I thought she just didn't like pasta, but I eventually discovered throughout the course of that meal that she was avoiding grains because she's a Paleo eater. I didn't jump onto the bandwagon yet after that, but I had conversations with her about it because I'd been curious (and she looked fit, so I was naturally a bit jealous) and she was gracious enough to tell me. After a while, I started researching stuff on my own and thought to try it.

It didn't pan out well for me the first few tries because I kept getting tempted by my family's stash. It was terrible! But I've since learned to manage (thanks to my neighbor and TONS of online resources), even though at this point my family's already gotten used to Paleo meals. They're not completely Paleo eaters yet, but they're getting there! :)

And hello, Warren. :)
