 It's an extra pumpkin fall morning in the Cross house. Pumpkin pancakes courtesy of the ever so talented @dianesanfilippo and pumpkin spiced bulletproof coffee made with a dollop of fresh roasted pumpkin (which made the coffee super creamy and delicious), coconut oil, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and 100% cacao butter. Yum! Happy Saturday! #paleo #pumpkin #pancakes #bulletproofcoffee #pumpkinspicelatte #healthy #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Call us corny or cute but Team Cross Camouflage is ready for our 90 minute ruck march with 90lbs in honor of #every90minutes raising money for ALS research. We obvi needed to carb up before the workout. And yes we got a sitter to workout. #dontjudge #thereismoreboozeafter #crossfit #als #atx #every90minutes #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Lunch after a doozy #CrossFit workout this afternoon, @zicococonutwater, kale salad with nitrate free turkey and about 4x of what you see here of plantain chips. I couldn't stop! Yay for the weekend. It's been a long two weeks! #TGIF #lunch #paleo #zico #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 We (present company included) are losing sight of the important things. As a society we are freaking out over 3+ cases of Ebola in the US yet no one cares that more than 5,000 people die of the flu a year. #flushot #annual #doingmypart #civicduty #medicine #fitfluential #ourfullplate #army #soldier
 A coworker just had a baby and as much as I would like to buy that cute little baby girl something pink and frilly, a home cooked Paleo meal was requested. I made my Paleo Homemade Ground Beef and Pork Tomato Meat Sauce Version 2.0 over golden beets and zucchini zoodles! Perfection! #paleo #homemadefoodisthebestgiftEVER #homemade #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Can't you tell this boy loves apples?!?! I gave him that apple this morning and he gnawed on that until he reached the core! Kept him busy AND nourished while we packed lunches and got everyone ready. #lifesaver #apple #paleo #paleobaby #paleokids #fitfluential #ourfullplate
