101.5 The Eagle
I was a Guest on the Jon and Amanda Show on 101.5 The Eagle - KEGA, Utah
Here’s a link to the broadcast. Fast forward to 20:00 - http://tinyurl.com/qcgr7u6
We had a fun chat discussing what your fridge says about you, plus I had a chance to analyze Jon and Amanda’s fridges.
Here are some brief highlights…
• Best Foods, among others (which also tells me Amanda’s West of the Mississippi. East of the Mississippi, it’s Hellman’s).
• There’s a Classic Formula: Healthy Diet + Exercise = 1 bodacious body. When you’re married, don’t take your spouse for granted and put your best foot forward. I’m not talking size, I’m talking health and looking your best. Amanda is.
• Almond Milk, enough said.
• Amanda buys organic, so she’s looking out for her health, and ups the odds that she cares for the environment, perhaps even local businesses. Organic is also more expensive, so her and hubby are doing okay financially.
• She has more dressings than a salad bar.
• Tofurkey. Personally, I avoid Tofu like the plague, but it is a healthy product.
• I love to see champagne in someone’s fridge…it’s all about celebrating and enjoying the moment. The pop of the cork, sound of the bubbles, it’s great dating ammo, and a sign that Amanda and hubby can dial up the romance.
Big On Breakfast
• Amanda has so many eggs, it’d be cheaper if she owned chickens. This tells me she’s probably more on the run during the week, and chills more at home on the weekends. (The other option for the egg stash is she bakes, but I don’t see a supply of butter or other baking ingredients)
• She brews her own coffee at home, per the Costco sized portion of Coffee mate.
• I have to assume Amanda and hubby are a bit crazed by their work schedules, as their fridge is a bit chaotic. (And chaos in one’s fridge usually translates to chaos on one’s life)
• She’s got that leaning tower of something on the top shelf.
• That Tupperware is trying to escape.
• She’s got plastic all over the place with those mystery things inside. They might be Avocados, but it looks more like hostage than storage.
• Right off the bat, Jon laps Amanda in the fridge model department. It’s stainless steel with a French Door bottom and temperature control drawers. Very sexy.
• The only place more overpopulated than Jon’s fridge is India. Yes, Jon has the item: ‘This Box is Filled with Goodness’. His fridge is just filled with too much of it.
• Jon’s fridge makes it clear that he’s married, with a Jon Jr. With all the juice, honey, maple syrup and Costco runs, it’s not cost effective if you’re only shopping for 2, nor could 2 down all this before it spoiled.
Jon Does his Body Good
• Like Amanda, Jon is eating healthy. He buys products from Good Foods Group, which are natural and preservative free.
• He downs tons of fruits and veggies. Like Amanda, even though you’re married, you want to look good in your skivvies.
• The array of Kirkland brands filling Jon’s fridge makes this one a no-brainer.
• Jon straddles the line on the brand front: he has name brands such as A1, Lea & Perrins and Vita Coco and generic on several other products.
Room for Romance
• Now, as Jon is married with a kid, it’s easy to get caught up in daddy mode and not as attentive to studly hubby mode. His fridge makes this very clear, as it’s all about family (and quite the mess). There’s no room for romance. Lets change that…
• Jon needs to dedicate one shelf for ‘couple time’. Have a bottle of wine, champers, adults foods you can share, with a drink or a late night snack when the little one is in bed.
• We all have to work on this. We need to dedicate space in our fridge to our relationship, and not just family and day-to-day living. When everything is mixed together in our fridge, we often mix it together in our lives as well.
